A two night stay was booked at Holden Manz and afterward my wife and I agreed that it was a terrific experience. There are only 5 guest suites at this country house and it makes for a quiet intimate experience. We met one couple there from the US who were on their honeymoon. Great choice on their part too. Our...

Holden Manz have helpful, welcoming and friendly staff. The setting is gorgeous and very convenient as a short drive into the town. The interiors have many interesting pieces of art and the rooms are very comfortable.

Day one - or rather, night one of our three day stay at Holden Manz saw us planning to go out to dinner in Franschhoek. But it was so restful and peaceful and downright welcoming at Holden Manz that our party of four sat in the lounge-cum-library and chatted. Our slothfulness was no problem to the staff who happily whipped...

We spent just a night, complete with dinner on-site. It's one hour drive from Cape Town and really worth 2 nights so you can explore the other estates, do a wine tasting tour (convenient shuttle organized by the town) and enjoy the spa and pool (we had no time for that unfortunately). Décor is VERY refined, the vineyard is lovely...

Definitely worth a stay here, the hotel is small and the staff are fully focused on the guests. It's in a great setting and has attached a very nice restaurant. We wished we had longer to stay there because it's a very calm environment. You almost don't need to leave. One recommendation would be to have lunch at the hotel...

A wonderful place to stay. The whole property is pristine & exquisitely decorated, but the addition of the fabulous art collection lifts it to another level. The rooms were luxurious, staff were attentive and charming, and the breakfast was delicious. Cannot recommend highly enough!
