The only problem with this long weekend was it went too fast. We arrived on a chilly Friday night and after a lovely dinner, we reached the Manhattan. Our host Brett had thought of everything. The house was so toasty warm and everything was in its place. The fridge was so well stocked with all the essentials and some. Fresh milk, bread. There was some lovely cheeses and the pantry was stocked with plenty of nibbles. The cupboards were well stocked with top quality culinary tools.
The house was spotless. i swear Brett must have even ironed the curtains. The three double bedrooms were immaculate. Lovely crisp well ironed sheets and quilts and the bathroom was heated and again it felt like brand new.
I think the thing that stands out about "The Man" is that you felt like you were the first guest ever. The place felt like it was brand new and so comfortable it set the standard for the weekend! We had a fantastic time visiting the wonderful vineyards and great bars, restaurants and hotels. Then to go back to "the Man" for a great nights sleep ready to go again the next day.
We were lucky to meet our charming host Brett before we left and share a few bevvies with him and his lovely partner.
We are taking some new friends up there in August and we can't wait to stay at 'the Man" again. Highly recommended.
The Manhattan in Orange is all Class. Modern, ultra stylish, comfortable, well equipped and has everything you need and more. All the little touches make such a difference. The beds are super comfortable, luxurious linen, beautifully and thoughtfully furnished throughout. You couldn’t ask more of a host, Brett goes above and beyond to make sure you have an amazing stay, he recommended some fabulous local restaurants and wineries. This is my second visit to The Manhattan and it continues to exceeds my expectations. Thank you Brett. I’ll be back!
Thank you Brett for a wonderful stay. Your house was extremely clean, with all mod-cons and such a well equipped kitchen with many items for breakfast included. Enough space for 4 adults and 2 children and walking distance into town. We stayed over Christmas and Brett kindly sent through a comprehensive list of everything which was open over that period, plus recommendations of places to go and see. Would love to stay at your place again. Many thanks.
I stayed with my wife and three young kids (3,5,7) for two nights. Brett's house is beautifully appointed and very welcoming. There are many small touches which make it feel homely, and its kitchen is fully equipped, making a lazy stay at home night very easy. Its location is very central to Orange. We had a wonderful time in Orange and Brett's lovely house was a highlight.
Located near the centre of Orange, The Manhattan was an idyllic getaway for the long weekend. I was so impressed with all of the amenities at the Manhattan. The heated floors and towel rails, luxurious linen, Molton Brown products, Nespresso machine and the best stocked kitchen of any place I have stayed. The place was impeccably clean and comfortable. We were also really appreciated the welcome and orientation from the owner, Brett. I can't wait to return.
