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.

We had a lovely stay for our honeymoon, it was our favorite stop during our 12 day trip. Holden Manz is nestled in the valley at the foot of the mountain. The house is beautifully done with unique art in a spacious layout that feels like your own home. There are well maintained gardens, a pond, and pool in grounds...

Only here for one night but what a place. Beautiful scenery and lovely people. The accommodation is excellent with original artwork in every room. Hope to come again. Surrounded by vineyards and mountain. There are only 5 rooms so might be difficult to get a booking.

Nothing was too much trouble for the very competent staff and the owners who live on the property . The restaurant delighted us with 5 star food and...

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful two days and night at Holden Manz. The room was beautiful, service excellent and general vibe of the country house is so relaxing and comfortable. The decor, including fantastic art, is top-class. We would also thoroughly recommend the restaurant where we had a wonderful dinner.

A great place to relax and explore the winelands. The accommodation and staff were excellent and we enjoyed the food and wine at the restaurant. We had just flown to S Africa from the USA and found this a great place to recover from the journey. The setting of the winery close to the craggy mountains is unbelieveable

I wish this was my home! The house and grounds are beautiful and the artwork is perfectly curated. Food and hospitality was excellent with absolutely zero problems. The house is a short walk from the winery and the staff there was amazing, too. I can't recommend this highly enough, we would love to go back! Thanks G&M!

Having discovered Holden Manz on a bicycle ride last year, we booked on the spot and had a wonderful week there in January this year. HM is a hidden gem with only five spacious, quiet and tastefully decorated rooms and large bathrooms. Ours had a lovely, sunny patio as well overlooking the nearby mountains.
