They have 5 large beautiful suites in the main building. The 2 owners and their families live at another section of the same building. The restaurant...

We were a little disappointed. The setting is great, but the accommodation austere and very average bathrooms. Remember this is a 5 star establishment. No decent coffee facilities in the rooms and when we ordered a cappuccino from the staff there was not even a biscuit or any pastry to have with the coffee. I accept I am a little...

My wife and I stayed at Holden Manz for two nights at the end of March 2017. We had an absolutely amazing time. We live in Abu Dhabi and have stayed at some top quality 5 star Hotels and Holden Manz matched and exceeded them in so many ways. Franschhoek is a beautiful place, but the Hotel is perfectly situated....

We visited the Helen Manz estate last year for lunch and wine tasting. Big G is a favourite! This year we promised ourselves we would stay at the country house & spa, which was everything we hoped for. The staff are all so warm and welcoming, the house is beautiful with fabulous artwork everywhere you look. With just 5 rooms...

Amazing scenery, good location, beautiful serene facility, highly recommended. The location of the restaurant on-site was a plus as well. Staff are always attentive and security gave a good feel without being overwhelming. Personal attention from the owners was nice too.

Top luxury country house, every detail is set with extreme attention and care. Staff is helpful and always available. The owners are very kind. Suits are beautiful, we loved the fireplace with a good whisky. Bfast very good. The only thing to improve is the restaurant for dinner... food is just ok and very little variety.
