Excelsior Manor, 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 homely bedrooms, with ensuite bathrooms, and exudes old world charm.
Generous home cooked 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. Enjoy exploring the 250 hectare farm, cycling, bird watching, fishing in the dam and blending your `own creation` wine.
