I stayed here for one night to catch a plane the next day. They picked me up from the airport and drove me back free of charge. Dinner and breakfast were delicious, room was spacious and clean, hosts are wonderful. There is a pool, playground for kids, and two very mild-mannered little dogs keeping watch.

We recently visited Joburg and stayed at Marben Manor. Their rooms are spacious and decorated nicely and the gardens are a paradise for bird watchers in a tranquil setting. Yvonne and Willem made us feel very welcome and treated us like part of the family. Truly a home away from home, we sat together during meals and exchanged stories from... More

We enjoyed staying at Marben Manor, It has a homely atmosphere and the hosts are very hospitable. The breakfast was super (very English) and the home cooked meal in the eveing was excellent. The rooms are very comfortable and we enjoyed the pool.

I overnighted here just prior to a safari trip to Namibia. I found Willem and Yvonne to be excellent hosts. The included dinner was good and basic, but the Pavlova dessert was a highlight. Breakfast was delicious, and included a very nice variety of items like eggs cooked to order. Having a ceiling fan in my spacious room was nice,... More

Marben Manor is a great and secure place to stay. Well-appointed, spacious rooms and a real family welcome. Great selection for breakfast and dinner can be arranged in advance. Our dinner in the elegant dining room was home-cooked and delicious. Sociable conversation around the communal dining table was a welcome change from the usual insular hotel arrangements. Conveniently located close... More

We immediately felt at home at this delightful family owned and run guest house. Behind its secure walls and gates, Marben Manor boasts very comfortable rooms, a lovely pool (long enough for laps if we had been so inclined), a tennis court and beautiful grounds with plenty of native trees and plants. The soft birdsong added to the restful and... More

My young son and I stayed at here in early July 2015 as we passed through Johannesburg. We were met at the airport by host Willem and he drove us to Marben Manor. It was just what we needed after a long flight. No need to think about anything - just like family collecting you and taking you home. Yvonne... More

Stayed 4 nights in Marben Manor in January 2015. We had stayed previously in 2008. What a wonderful place - Yvonne and Williem are excellent hosts and nothing is too much trouble Accommodation and food is excellent together with the peaceful surroundings of their property in a lovely quiet area with swimming pool and garden.
