“What a gem of a place in the heart of the vineyard!”
We cannot recommend the Excelsior Manor Guesthouse enough! Unfortunately we only had one night there and so wished we had booked for at least 2! The setting is so lovely! The room we had (the best one, called Octavius) was very large with really high ceilings, very comfortable and had everything we needed. Lovely pool and deck. Excellent service and very friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Carin was wonderful – nothing was too much for her! We had a lovely drive around the estate on the golf buggy which was a lovely way to get around.
A really nice chat the the owners in the early evening over a glass of their stunning Sav Blanc (and the Paddock Shiraz was exceptional too!) reminded us that it is a private estate with the family keeping in close touch all the time. The really interesting wine tour was conducted bt Jacques, a son who was in no hurry to get rid of us! They certainly know how to build loyal to their estate and their exceptional wines!
We really loved this place and will tell everyone about it! And above all, we can’t wait to go back and will be ordering lots of their wines to be delivered to our home in Plett for many years to come!
