Manaar offered me an excellent facility to host my parents and I for a well appointed relaxing weekend away. Most rooms offered private areas, some with braai facilities, that allowed us to spend time with family and friends. Once there, we didn't want to leave. Management is friendly and professional.

This year was the fifth time we stayed at Manaar House for the Comrades weekend and were spoiled as usual. Through the years the care and attention to detail at this guest house has never slackened. The rooms are beautifully appointed and offer everything we need for relaxing and even preparing those special pre-race meals. Access to the highway is... More

This B&B is located near all the activity in Umhlanga Rocks very close to Durban and only 40 minutes or so from the airport. For travelers arriving at the airport and driving on towards East London, it’s a great nearby overnight stop before hitting the road in the morning. In the front garden is a beautiful combination of inviting pool... More

I was in the area on business but as I was staying for a few nights preferred to avoid the more formulaic hotel chains. I was totally delighted with Manaar House. The room was comfortable with direct access to the 'outdoor lounge' and pool area. The bathroom was spacious with both a great tub and a walk-in shower. Breakfast, as... More

We had a blast here! After finishing the Sani2c MTB stage race we put our feet up for a few days at Manaar House. We could relax in this stunning home environment. The breakfasts were out of this world and Hermann and Guss went out of their way to accommodate our every need. Situated close to everything, we will definitely... More

We stayed at Manaar House at the end of our holiday to South Africa. The rooms very nicely furnished and the breakfasts are delicious! A very convenient location for a departure from King Shaka International Airport. Hermann went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable, booking dinner at a local restaurant for us. We will certainly be... More

Well, what can we say? The rooms were just right with some lovely and thoughtful touch of placing little things like paracetamols in the bathrooms which I needed very much during our stay at Manaar House. Mark's cooked breakfast was delicious and an artwork in itself - the baked plum and the full English breakfast with crispy bacon. The ambience... More
