We never knew Tulbach was that nice, Manley Wine Estate offers spacious, cosy accomodation and easy stress-free check-in. The views on the farm, especially early in the morning with the clouds hanging lower than the mountains, are unforgettable. Winemaker Stefan Hartmann showed us around a bit, Manley is a working, winemaking farm. Very nice wines.

We've stayed here twice. The rooms are definitely much nicer than the self-catering cottage. Pros: Affordable, friendly staff and a nice braai area next to the pool. Cons: Smaller details needs attention (e.g. used a lot of doom to kill ants, but this was never cleaned up). Also, these are probably the worst showers I've had in a long time.

Staff excellent very friendly willing to do anything to make stay more comfortable, room fantastic . Although self catering unit restaurant that is attached to property is poor and would suggest you find somewhere else to eat.

The rooms and facilities were excellent and the view out of this world however the standard of the breakfasts was not good, in fact very poor!! This was the second time we have stayed at Manley but wonder if we would do so again because of the poor quality of food and service at breakfast!

Rooms are huge. Free WiFi and good service. Breakfast is excellent. Everything that I could have expected for my monies worth. Also free bottled water provided in the rooms. Surroundings were lovely as well
