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. But the real joy is the...

It was a joy to spend four nights in this beautiful country house on the Holden Manz Wine Estate. We had such a great stay it is hard to sum it up. The house is beautiful, well appointed and we had a very comfortable suite. Lots of communal space as well as outdoor space to relax in. The owners live...

All the staff were extremely attentive and seemed...

This is really worth pushing the boat out on. It is small well furnished and was better than we had even dreamed. Cannot say enough about the location and the accommodation. Service was first class all the way.

Absolutely flawless in every way. The staff were so incredibly thoughtful - the vineyard is gorgeous and the restaurant accompanying the guesthouse is delicious. We especially loved the thoughtfulness of the manager Eneil, who made us feel as if we were the only guests he had to look after. Little things like asking us when we'd like our breakfast (which...

This place is a perfect place to stay to be spoilt, we had 2 nights here with friends and had the best time, the rooms are spacious and beautifully furnished, and there is original art hanging in all areas.

We loved Holden Manz. Great rooms in beautiful surroundings. We ate in the restaurant above the winery and the food was very good. The breakfast was the best we had during our two week stay in South Africa, we only wished we booked for longer.
