Luxury Accommodation in the Heart of the Robertson Wine Valley


Excelsior Manor Guesthouse offers luxury accommodation in the heart of the Robertson Wine Valley on a working wine farm. The Cape Dutch Revival Manor, once a family home, has been lovingly restored and offers elegant comfort and serenity along with personal hospitality. There are nine classically decorated en-suite bedrooms with one offering facilities for the disabled.

Summer days can be spent beside the deep blue swimming pool which is situated on an elevated, yet secluded wooden deck on the southern face of the house. Enjoy breathtakingly panoramic views of the vineyards and the Langeberg Mountain ranges.

For the more adventurous explore the farm and scenic view points by mountain bike or golf cart. Vinophiles can blend, bottle and label their ‘Own Creation’ in Excelsior’s tasting room, situated on the water’s edge of the farm dam which is abundant with birdlife.
