Great place to stay. comfy beds and great kitchen to cook in. Since I was with my children I was able to use their fully equipped kitchen in the self catering unit to cook comfort foods for my children whilst they played in the unit. Management were also really helpful. Will definitely be back!

I stayed at Manaar House during my wedding week in July. Customer service was exceptional. Hermann and Gus were phenomenal hosts. We booked the entire B&B for my hotel guests. Hermann arranged for airport pickups for all of them. He was organized, flexible, and responsive throughout. We all flew in from abroad (Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Hong Kong and the US),... More

This is a great place if you want to be close to Umhlanga (walking distance) while still being close enough to all of Durban's sights and sounds. Beautifully designed, great hosts, incredibly peaceful. I would definitely stay again.

Manaar House is located away from the city, so its extremely peaceful, quiet and safe. It's also just a ten minute walk to Umhlanga Beach! Hermann and Guss were amazing hosts and were extremely kind and helpful helped us with transportation and other amenities. The rooms are very comfortable and its a great feeling to get straight to breakfast as... More

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
