The team that work at Holden Manz were superb. They were helpful, informative and they made our stay. For this reason we would recommend others to stay. Thoughtful touches include welcome drink, bottle of wine in room and local tips and recommendations. They had lovely artwork around the property showcasing South African artists. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Most amazing stay of our lives!

This was with out a doubt the most amazing experience of our lives. We went there for a romantic getaway and the staff made us feel incredibly special from the moment we arrived. I had asked the staff to make the room special for the night and they did not disappoint, with champagne, flowers and candles throughout the room! When we arrived back from supper they had started a fire in our room, turned down our bed for us as well as provide us with a full weather report for the next day. We felt so spoilt! The breakfasts the following day are also really good, large tasty portions which is well presented and served to you. To top it all off, we received a bottle of wine as a goodbye gift. Thanks Holden Manz team for the incredible hospitality - we will be back for sure!
