We stayed here on our trip around South Africa, it was such a beautiful place and we were so relaxed and well looked after. The restaurant was also a highlight with great food and very intelligent service. I would recommend to anyone going to Franschhoek as a highlight of our trip. Thanks to all the staff for looking after us so well.

A special place which we had to ourselves for our two day stay and so were pampered.

Stunning setting,a great sense of space in the public rooms.Breakfast and tea good in terms of variety and presentation.Main meals taken elsewhere.

Holden Manz is a really outstanding find which I would recommend to anyone. I went as part of a group of unusually demanding hotel guests, and everyone was delighted by Holden Manz.

The guest house is absolutely stunning. It is set in its own vineyards with a swimming pool overlooking the trees which grow along a small stream, and a beautiful lake. All of this is surrounded by the mountains in one of the most dramatic parts of the Franschhoek valley. The house itself is immaculate. One of the owners also owns an art gallery, and the house is decorated with immaculate and personal taste which sets it apart from bland hotel décor.

The staff who look after you on a day to day basis are extremely nice, and go out of their way to help, as do the owners. The staff and owners gave excellent restaurant tips, and were very helpful in making bookings. The breakfast and afternoon tea (a meal in itself) were delicious. There is also a restaurant on the estate, a short walk from the house, which we liked very much.

I left Holden Manz finding it impossible to believe that there is a better place to stay in Franschhoek. I will definitely go back when I am next in the Cape. I think that for most European readers the description of Holden Manz as a ‘guesthouse’ radically undersells the place, which is preferable to most 5* hotels.

We stayed at Holden Manz Guest House in December 2011 to celebrate my wife's 50th Birthday. The team at Holden Manz looked after us very well and ensured that this special occasion was one to remember. We were greeted with enthusiasm and made to feel at home in their wonderful house, set on a wine estate with a super restaurant and spa. They organised and provided a fabulous picnic that we enjoyed beside the river in the vineyard. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, providing information and recommendations about things to see and do in the area. A great place to stay and highly recommended for a relaxing break in a beautiful setting.

Having spent a few days at the HMGHouse was a superb experience. The atmosphere, the service, the restaurant (outside lounge and fireplace, food was excellent), the surroundings were over the top. Next time coming to Franschoek I wont look for accommodation other than the HMGH.
