As we parked our vehicle, we were greeted promptly and welcomed. We were explained where the bathrooms are, where breakfast will be eaten and about the honesty bar. Our bags were already up in our room which had the most magnificant view of the winelands and their restaurant building. Our rooms were perfect, nice and clean and very spacious. Was nice for them to leave a complimentary bottle of wine and also some indulgent bath salts. We loved walking through the garden, sitting by the river. The honest bar worked perfectly as you dont need to look for someone to help you with a drink you can just go and help yourself. Breakfasts were on time and delicous. The staff was very friendly. If I could suggest one thing is perhaps they could have a late night menu of perhaps sandwhiches or wraps instead of having to go to the winery/restaurant to have dinner as sometimes you just want to have something in your room? All and all we will be back and do everything in the same sequence as we did the first time. It is really a lovely place to relax and my son enjoyed playing in the river, catching frogs which kept him busy for hours while we could have our drinks and relax. Love the decor, love all the paintings, I honestly would not change a thing about this place.

My boyfriend took me to Holden Manz wine estate for a wine-paired lunch and it was delicious. Plus, the waitrons were extremely attentive and made us feel very special. We had a great table upstairs overlooking the mountains. The food was cooked to perfection and in particular our waitron - Erika - was very professional. We bought quite a few bottles after additionally doing a brief wine tasting after lunch - the blend was great, and the Big G was also very tasty. We will definitely go again! The little present of chocolate and free rose was a great touch for Woman's Day. Thank you HM!

Our stay at Holden Manz was outstanding! We were greeted at the door upon arrival and were taken care of like precious royalty from that moment on! Our room was immaculate with all amenities provided.I especially enjoyed using the soaps and lotions from their Spa that were provided in our bathroom. The breakfasts were ample and delicious. A "High tea" is also served and was also very tasty. The house itsef is an Art Museum of modern South African art. It was truly spectacular. The staff were always friendly and attentive. We felt like we were on a honeymoon! I hope to go back there in my lifetime!

We enjoyed our stay at Holden Manz. They had great wine, food, excellent service, beautiful estate and very clean and comfortable rooms. While staying at Holden Manz we had a nice picnic by the river. We would highly recommend doing this during your stay. We also had a great massage at the spa which was high quality and relaxing. They had very nice art work in the hotel and a nice gallery downtown. The staff were very knowledge about each painting. We really enjoyed our stay!
