Excelsior Manor Guest House

Found in: Boland, Boutique Hotels, Breede River Valley, Guesthouses / B&B, Honeymoon Destinations, Robertson, Western Cape

 The original home has been extensively restored to its former glory. The guesthouse now offers nine luxury en suite bedrooms. The spacious rooms provided adequate internal space for renovation without altering the external façade. Thus the tranquil proportions of the exterior have been retained, with the original wooden window frames and gables all intact from a century ago.

Many old trees grace the garden and these have been maintained. The northern side now offers a refuge of tranquillity with fragrant old roses and a rose labyrinth to restore one’s soul. The south side of the house opens onto a wooden deck surrounding a deep blue swimming pool. This elevated but secluded deck offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the vineyards, the Langeberg, splendid sunsets and generally the ‘kingdom’ of this fertile valley.

The guesthouse offers 9 classically decorated en-suite bedrooms, a swimming pool, stunning views and an in-house chef for your gastronomic pleasure. Nature lovers can enjoy walks, mountain biking, fishing and excellent birding. Wine tasting and wine blending are also on offer.
