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 was fantastic, complete with freshly made croissants and muffins), to bringing up high tea to our room, vineyard recommendations and cards left on the bed giving us the next day's forecast. A simply breathtaking, rustic estate where you'll feel right at home. Highly recommend

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. Breakfast was great fresh fruit, pastries and eggs cooked to order! Afternoon tea was served to us by the pool and we had an evening meal in Franschhoeck Kitchen which looks over the Vineyard.

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.

We stayed here for 3 nights over New Year and it was a delightful break from the madness of the season.
A lovely light and airy house full of interesting art with a serene atmosphere and lovely views.
Despite turning up earlier than expected our welcome was charming, and after a welcome drink we were directed towards a suitable place to have lunch in Franshhoek before returning to find our rooms ready and the smallish but delightful pool beckoning.
Rooms were well-equipped and spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and lovely sheets, and our children thoroughly enjoyed the tubs of bath salts and candles provided in each bathroom!
Breakfasts and tea ( with lots of goodies) were delicious and the honesty bar very well supplied with a full range of soft drinks, wines and spirits.
Do try the Holden Manz rose!
This is a fantastic base for visiting the surrounding wine-lands, and the tasting at Holden Manz itself is well worth doing, and complimentary for guests at the house.
Many thanks to all the charming staff and to the owners for being so welcoming and friendly.
We will definitely be back.

Beuatiful country house located just outside Franschhoek surrounded by the vineyard. The view is stunning, it makes you want to never leave. Nice room and excellent breakfast which was served on our own terrace. The estate also has a very nice restaurant with mountain and vineyard view. The food is excellent and the staff is very friendly. Franschhoek is a lovely little town surrounded by beautiful mountains and vineyards. We only stayed one night, but would love to come back and stay longer.
