We spent our 33rd Wedding Anniversary at the Manley Wine Lodge and had meals at the Manley Wine Lodge Restuarant. The staff are friendly and made our stay very enjoyable. We were serenaded by their very own Michael Kenny the singing opera chef. What a treat. His food is amazing and plentiful. Our room was very comfortable and the property... More

Not very impressed with the service. Although the food wasn't bad I didn't get the eggs i ordered and with the slow service i just ate what i had. There are better places to breakfast at Tulbagh in my honest opinion. Maybe the staff was pre occupied due to the wedding later that day......

We attended a curry evening at Manley. The dishes were priced at R80, and included three different options - lamb, chicken or vegetarian. If a guest could not decided, there was also the option of a smaller portion of all three at the same price. Manley wines were on the wine list, at reasonable prices, and the wine is very... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we visited Manley. The wines are excellent and the wine tasting with Theo made it a memorable experience.

We arrived for a wine tasting and were greeted by a very friendly and helpful German gentlemen. We sat outside overlooking the picturesque estate. The wines were excellent, certainly the best that we sampled during our visit to Tulbagh, and the pinotage in particular was outstanding! A wonderful experience and we will certainly be back again.

We needed to pursue the waitress to order drinks and food, and everything was slow. Another issue was the amount of wine bottles the had at the restaurant. We... More

Absolutely loved our stay here...staff went out of their way to make us feel extra-comfortable. Our accommodation had a fire place and we were surrounded by snow capped mountains all weekend! Fantastic experience!
