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

We had a wonderful stay here. Staff were super friendly & interested in us. I was leant a book and given a recipe. The rooms were excellent & super clean. The owners went the extra mile to cater to our needs. This place comes highly recommended by our family.

We spent 2 nights at Marben Manor, as a rest stop before and after visiting Kruger. We could not have gotten a better start to our vacation or a better rest between safaris. Willem, Yvonne and Eben could not have been more hospitable. Returning for our second stay felt like going home to family. The rooms were well stocked, clean... More

My partner & i stayed at the guest house for two separate nights either side of our safari in the Kruger park. We were picked up from the airport and taken straight back to Marben Manor and from that moment we felt completely at home and as if we were staying with family! The staff couldn't help us enough &... More
