The Maanaar House is a lovely place. The pool, the jacuzzi and the room, they are beautifull. But in the end it's all about the people. And that's what makes the stay unique: the hosts are great! One of the best experiences in Afrika!

We've just returned from a 4 night stay at Manaar House. If you are looking to stay in the Durban North or Umhlanga area this is the only place to stay. The service we received from Tina and Hermann is what makes this place so special. We also had a gorgeous room with our own private patio. The breakfasts overlooking... More

Many thanks to Jack and Mark for a very warm welcome to their charming place in Umhlanga. Perfect rooms, excellent breakfasts, plans made to resolve problems, in short a professionally run operation centred around the needs of their guests. That is increasingly difficult to find these days, and I wholeheartedly recommend this establishment to all travellers heading for Umhlanga.

I loved Manaar House! It was comfy and relaxing while also feeling like a special luxurious treat. The breakfast was by far the best I had throughout my entire trip. I wish there were more places like this.

As always we could not have asked for better hosts. Manor House is an amazing place to stay. Tina and Wayne always go the extra mile to make sure we felt at home. The place is always clean, comfortable and the best breakfast you can have. We have been back 3 times and that will definitely not be our last.... More

I could not have chosen better! If you want a lesson in service Manaar House is the place to go for lessons. Nothing was an effort for Tina and Wayne and they went beyond what I thought was their call of duty. This was among the best places I have stayed in. Will definitely revisit and recommend.

Our stay at Manaar House was incredible! We arrived before the stated check in time, yet we were meet by Tina and Wayne who assisted and accommodated us immediately and without any hassle. As we walked through Manaar House, there was a sense of peace, calmness, and most of all "home". The setting is beautiful, comfortable and clean and we... More

Unfortunately we only stayed one night at Manaar House, we could have easily stayed longer. Jack is a great host and very helpful whenever there was a question. He gave us great tips for a perfect stay at Umhlanga and we were a bit sad that we had to leave after only one night. Manaar House is tastefully decorated and... More

What a wonderful place this is. Forget the big hotels they have no chance of providing the same hospitality, comfort and service the Manaar Hotel provides. Umhlanga is a brilliant place to stay with lots to do and great places to eat.
