Excelsior Manor Guesthouse, in the heart of the Robertson Wine Valley, is a Cape Revival manor built during the ostrich feather boom of the early 1900s. Having been recently lovingly restored to its former glory, it offers quiet luxury and personal hospitality. Set in a mature and graceful garden, with shady trees and fragrant roses, the Manor has nine homely bedrooms, with ensuite bathrooms, and exudes old world charm. Generous home cooked country breakfasts and delicious three course dinners are served in the traditional dining room or on the raised deck overlooking the swimming pool with a view over the vineyards to the Langeberg mountains. Excelsior is a working wine farm which has been in the de Wet family for 5 generations since 1859. Guests are invited to explore the 250 hectare farm either on foot or in the golf cart provided. There is a tasting centre, set on the picturesque dam, where guests are invited to try the range of Excelsior Wines and to blend their 'own creation'. Each of the nine unique luxury bedrooms at Excelsior Manor Guesthouse has a history linked to a famous thoroughbred or hackney horse that was previously bred on Excelsior Estate. All the rooms are ensuite and are equipped with the following:•Complimentary water, chocolates and a small bottle of local Muskadel•Towels •Hairdryer •Tea & coffee facility •Bathrobe & slippers •Bathroom amenities •Wireless internet connection is available in the lounge area •Clock radio/ alarm •International plugs Octavius - Octavius Caeser, the first thoroughbred sire introduced to Excelsior, was bought by Koos de Wet in 1873

What an outstanding experience it was. Beautiful surroundings, friendly, professional staff who goes the extra mile. (My daughter had to renew her driver's license urgently. With the help of the friendly staff of Excelsior, she was helped by the friendly people of Robertson. Robertson in itself an absolute GEM!) An experience to remember! I am going again in October and will definitely recommend the Wyn Wandel to anybody!

This is the perfect place to relax and recharge. The staff were excellent, food delicious and beautifully presented and the setting was stunning. Loved our early morning trip out in the golf cart to watch the pickers, wine making tour and lazy afternoons at the pool. Thank you!

A special destination with great wines and lovely friendly staff led by Kirstin. The quality of the food is up there with top restaurant quality, which is an achievement for a relatively small guesthouse.
