We stayed for two nights and found it an extremely pleasant experience. The staff were very friendly and keen to help. The rooms were clean and well maintained. We also enjoyed the outdoor areas, pool and jacuzzi.

The house and gardens are compact but well designed - the swimming pool is just big enough for a reasonable swim and surrounded by a beautifully kept rockery garden. Herman and Gus who manage the property... More

We stayed at Manaar House self-catering accommodation for 6 nights before Christmas and it was great. Quiet, friendly staff, well appointed and clean. We also had delicious breakfast at the guesthouse every morning and the staff were very accommodating towards our nine month old son. Thanks for everything!

Our entire experience was an enjoyable one. Manaar Guesthouse is not only beautiful but peaceful and soul-refreshing. The staff was friendly and very helpful. All our leisurely needs were met with a smile and friendly conversation. The Great Dane is absolutely wonderful! Thank you to all those involved in making our stay a memorable one.
