Our room was spacious with a terrace looking over the orchard. The guest house has some amazing art and a nice touch with lots of books and magazines. We dined a few... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and was very sad to have to leave. Service was great and very friendly. The rooms are spacious with amazing wall art and décor throughout the estate. We had a fabulous lunch at the restaurant. Our favourite place in SA!

Having just one night in this wine region, we chose Holden Manz so we could sample and sleep all under one roof. There was not one thing out of place in 24 hours, the service was friendly and professional, I felt like I was staying in someones home. We had dinner in the restaurant and again, my expectations were exceeded... More

My husband and I spent three hours being pampered at the spa. We would recommend it! It is an indulgence that comes at a price, but we found it a treat and were very relaxed. Late lunch in town is easily done as the restaurants are all busy and ready to serve delicious fare. A near-perfect day...

We had a wonderful but sadly way too short a stay at Holden Manz. The staff were incredibly welcoming and hospitable (a nice cold glass of the estate's rose on arrival) and the country house and it's surrounding grounds were truly beautiful. The estate's restaurant (for evening wine tasting and dinner) was well worth the booking and more so to... More

We were welcomed with such warm hospitality and attention to detail. Our experience could not have been better. One of the highlights was the wonderfully appointed room with open fire and magnificent views of the surrounding mountains. We also loved our meal in the Holden Manz restaurant - new culinary ideas with a twist, imagination and great enthusiasm.
