Willem, Yvonne and their son Ebenezer are simply the best hosts I've ever seen. The property itself is amazing with lovely grounds, friendly dogs and even friendlier guests. They offer pick up from and drop to the airport which makes it even easier for one to get to their place. I pit-stopped here on my way to a safari in... More

Having heard nothing but praises of Marben Manor from friends and collegues, I had high expectations when I arrived... Needless to say, I was more than impressed. -Close to the airport and supermarket. -Warm and friendly service. -Clean, cosy rooms. -Delicious homemade meals. -Free internet. I look forward to coming back in the future:)

A group of the Western Cape Highland Dancing team stayed at Marben Manor this past weekend (and have done so in previous years). It's like a home away from home. Yvonne and Willem go out of their way to make the team feel welcome from the minute you walk in the door! My teenage daughter said "It feels like coming... More

My daughter and I have just returned from a wonderful safari in Botswana; our tour organizer had booked us in to Marben Manor because we flew in and out of Johannesburg, so Willem and Yvonne were our first and final experience of African hospitality. We came away feeling that we had discovered a new branch of the family. The accommodation... More

A calm, relaxing oasis near the bustling Tambo Airport and very close to Federal Air (for flights to Kruger). Willem and Yvonne Bester could not have been more accommodating and gracious. Great rooms, full English breakfast and a wonderful evening meal with great South African wines!

What an absolute gem on the outskirts of Johannesburg. Their hospitality was outstanding and the food and conversation was stimulating. This B&B was in many ways, superior to a hotel. We were met at the airport and driven directly to our quarters. We had dinner there ( excellent- home cooking) and the next morning had a full English breakfast with... More

Willem and Yvonne have a wonderful touch of wisdom hospitality and good humor. They have a grasp of South Africa's history and future. What a convenient and gracious way to start your adventure in this amazing land! Also really close to the airport for the tired and weary traveler!

I stayed already four times at this guest house and it is always a pleasure to come back. You give them a call and Willem or Yvonne will pick you up from the airport. They do their utmost best to feel you welcome at their guest house. Although you pay less it feels if you are at a 5 star... More

I stayed a total of 4 nights at the Marben Manor - one night before my week long safari, and 3 nights after to tour Johannesburg. The Manor is located 10 minutes from the airport. I could not have chosen a better place! Yvonne and Willem were so incredibly hospitable. The meals were delicious (I especially loved the macaroni dish)... More

During our South Africa trip, we stayed there for our last night, unfortunately not longer. The rooms are great, with fresh flowers and fruits and the house is lovely and elegant decorated. The breakfast left nothing to be desired. Before, I've never seen coffee in handbags, thank you for this good idea. But there is one, that makes it special... More
