Excelsior Manor Guesthouse offers accommodation in Robertson in the Breede River Wine Valley. It’s a grand home harking back to the Victorian times when spacious lawns and manicured gardens surrounded Cape Dutch Gabled Manor houses with their large fireplaces and high ceilings.
This farm was once an affluent ostrich feather farm. Robertson is about 160 kilomteres from Cape Town and was once on the old trading route to Port Elizabeth from Cape Town. Today Excelsior Manor House sports nine wonderfully spacious 4 star en-suite bedrooms, which are named after famous race horses that were bred at Excelsior.
There is a gorgeous swimming pool to dip into on the hot summer days. The elevated and secluded deck offers a breathtaking view of vineyards, and the mountains in the distance. The vineyards have been hand harvested for 5 generations. The main wines produced on the farm are Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
