Amazing service of Lamac beyond all expectations. Very nice and quite rooms that are great for relaxation. Will travel there for sure again for another relaxing weekend in the next couple of weeks. Great.

Holden Manz is a truly personal retreat. We were looked after by the small but extremely helpful team at the resort. Wines (especially the Big G 2010) are awesome and the living room, with its fireplace, myriad of interesting books in various languages as well as a tuned piano give a sense of place. Excellent restaurants in the surrounding and... More

From the moment I called to find out the price and availability at Holden Manz, I was won over by the extremely polite and helpful attitude of Collette. We booked the couples special, which includes 2 x massages, afternoon tea, dinner in the Franschhoek Kitchen. The whole farm is incredibly beautiful. The backdrop of the mountains, the decor, the art.... More

Perfect for a long weekend gateway. The suites are spacious with great fireplaces in winter. Food was good, spa also good and the setting is beautiful. The staff are amazing, very attentive. The artwork on the walls is a bonus.

Had a very enjoyable stay at Holden Manz. Fantastic location with very comfortable beds and excellent service. Staff friendly and very helpful. Lodge beautifully decorated with many paintings of famous painters. A must visit.

We had the privilege of staying at an unsung pearl of Franschoek last week. From the moment that we stepped out of our car we were greeted like long lost family and made to feel special and appreciated. The homestead is beautiful and welcoming with stunning art displayed throughout. The gardens are expansive with secret little nooks everywhere perfect for... More

We had a lovely time here - the location was fantastic with great views of clouds rolling down the mountains. It was great to stroll down by the river with a picnic too. A big thanks to all of the staff who helped make our stay so very enjoyable.

We had a wine tasting here as part of our ticket on the winetram. The estate is beautiful and grand. Nice buidlings and a sense of history can still be felt in some aspects and areas. We were however disappointed with the wines. We tasted quite a few in the complimentary tasting, but to us they tasted too acidy. The... More

We loved it here. Super welcome from the staff and owners. Amazing location – the vineyard is set between mountains in Franschhoek. We had lots of great wines and ate outstanding food at the restaurant (highly recommended). Very stylish interior, open fires in each room - and probably the most comfortable bed of our two-week trip! PS. Loved the Africology... More

What a place! Luxurious, stylish, characterful and with charming hosts - set the tone for a very relaxing 5-day stay in Franschhoek. Staying there is like being a guest in a large county house - you are made to feel very much a guest rather than a customer. All the staff are engaging and obliging, Lameck, Daniel and Colette looking... More
