What's not to like? Friendly, clean, great food, wonderful Cape architecture, beautiful views.

Bathroom on the small side and water pressure in the shower a little low, but nothing intolerable.

I would definitely return if visiting the region again.

We spend a lovely Mothers day at this establishment. Everything is always super clean and offcourse the beauty of the surroundings can not be topped. This place is in great shape for a 100 year old house, with all the modenr ammenities that you would ever need. Highly recommended.

Beautiful old estate with comfortable rooms. We had a hearty dinner next to the fire in the dining room. The night we were there it was very quiet but service was friendly and attentive. The modest-sized room was quite chilly as the front door was propped open until late. Next morning we had a big breakfast on the deck by the pool, then took the golf cart exploring the vineyards. No one was around to give us pointers so we used the dogs as guides. Unusual place to stay, recommend if you are looking for real ambiance on a working wine estate.

It's an old, lovely guesthouse out of town in the middle of a wine area. The rooms are nicely oldfashioned, clean kept. The estate wine, specially one white wine we tested was great, the dinner was good homemade cooking. We had a splendidly stay.

we stayed at Excelsior Manor in March 2014...what an amazing place. One of the most peaceful locations imaginable. Walks in the vineyards with the owners' dogs was great fun we really felt at home. Our room was large and comfortable with its own verandah space. We were very well looked after and enjoyed sampling the estates wines with our evening meal. Breakfast was served outside on the terrace by the large, clean swimming pool. Excellent selection of cold buffet and hot dishes cooked to order. Don't miss out on this one...you will love it

Room Tip: For complete peace choose a room away from the dining and ounge areas..in case the other guests are...

We stayed at Excelsior on the last day of our Easter holiday. The guest house is beautiful and the staff is incredibly friendly. We booked very last minute and asked the owner Carin if she would cook her famous bobotie for us for dinner. Although she was not at the guest house in the evening she prepared the bobotie for us, which we thoroughly enjoyed.
The beds are great and the linen is luxurious. Small but very adequate bathroom, with gown, slippers and towel heaters. The room has tea and coffee making facilities, biscuits, a night cap and even easter eggs! The room does not have a TV but after drinking the nice Excelsior wine at dinner, we did not miss the TV at all.
We went to the wine tasting room and made our own wine using their wine blending facility. Really cool!

The service was excellent. We stayed in the Country Cousin room and the only unfortunate downfall was the shower which was not working properly - which is quite a big thing in a room that only has one shower and no bath.
