Amazing get away with beautiful art, wine, food, accommodation and so much more. We loved every aspect of our one night stay! They accommodated us by accepting me earlier than check in time, and arranged an early breakfast for us the next day - which was beyond delicious. We'll definitely be back! Thank you!

We kicked off our honeymoon here and had the fortune to stay in the Oliphant Mountain suite. The room was spectacular, right at the front of the house ( had two rooms in fact), the most amazing bathroom ( with lovely bath smellies) and an unforgettable view across the vineyards. The house is very funky, full of various pieces of...

I cannot recommend Holden Manz highly enough, if you are looking for a vineyard hotel, this is the one. The setting is absolutely stunning, the grounds and old buildings have been turned into an exceptionally well presented and welcoming boutique hotel. The hotel is filled to the brim with incredible art of varying style, and beautiful old furniture giving the...

Holden Manz was absolutely incredible. Communication was clear and replies were always quick, and we were able to book plenty of treatments in the spa before we arrived. The grounds and country house are beautiful, the service is impeccable and the staff are incredibly welcoming. They even took the trouble of making us dinner reservations before we had arrived. The...

Stayed only one night at this lovely guesthouse which is a few kilometres outside Franschhoek. We arrived at 8pm and were told to hurry over to the restaurant (5 minutes walk) if wanted dinner and made our arrival somewhat stressful. The food we ordered was average, but the HoldennManz wines we drank were very good. There was even a complementary...

Wonderful, if far too short, stay at Holden Manz in Franschhoek. Impeccable service, we were greeted and at all times taken care of Montgomery and his colleagues.
