We stayed for 3 nights at the estate, total relaxation and quality from start to finish, the food in the restaurant was superb and the wine is fantastic. Eneil and the staff could not do enough for you to make your stay a happy one, well done and thank you we will return.

Absolutely incredible. My partner and I travel a lot and Holden Manz in Franschhoek is one of our favorite places that we have ever stayed, anywhere. Beautiful grounds, stunning art, great wine and fantastic service. We plan to return and book a longer trip for next time.

Beautiful country house with luxurious rooms. Staff are amazing and nothing is too much trouble. Wine tasting is a must as is dinner at Franschooek Kitchen, delicious food. Set just outside of town, perfect location for relaxing. This is our second visit and we are already planning our next visit.

What a great place just outside of the main town with quite splendid views of the mountains. Lots of places in the estate to chill out, be private and enjoy some downtime.

My brother got married here, and from start to finish our stay was wonderful. The staff were lovely ( I highly recommend the breakfast chef!) and the wedding was a day I'll never forget. Stunning accommodation and scenery combine to make a very memorable visit.

Gorgeous grounds and views, great service, very comfortable rooms. Walk through vineyards for a wine tasting or dinner at the restaurant. House is filled with art, and has lots of nooks to make it seem private. Eneil and the rest of the staff are the best. Don't know what would make it better

Beautiful and luxury boutique hotel with great views, amazing staff, good wines and the best breakfast during our two week trip. Only little minus was the small kitchen area in our suite - could look a bit nicer.
