I always looked forward to my business trips with my previous company as the overnight stay was not only affordable, but also luxurious, clean and modern. The owners are highly professional and have a fine eye for detail with customised customer service. The B&B runs like a well oiled machine. Home away from home. Highly recommended!

Me and my wife loved the place. Very good place, very good garden and swimming pool. You can see that Ralph and Charlene are treating the place very well and each thing it was well decided in order to decor the place. We really enjoyed the hospitality.

We've been here in January 2015, during a month trip throught the whole country and I have to say that this was without a doubt the most beatiful place where I stayed. Also, the couple that own the place is really kind and talking with both of them was superpleasant and also useful as they gave us a lot of... More

We found the Mariu Guest House very hard to locate - mainly because there is no sign outside the complex - just a street number. Once inside however, it was a delightful haven from a long and stormy days travelling. The room was comfortable, well appointed and clean. Mine host was warm, welcoming and very helpful. The bullfrogs were utterly... More

Mariu guest house greets you with the best views, imaginative and utterly Picturesque building style and the friendliest, most reliable service this side of the Mpumalanga border. The rooms are clean and well styled, the pool is gorgeous and clean and the breakfast is out of this world. Do yourself a favour- this is the place to stay in Nelspruit.

The place situated in a very nice environment. The rooms are spacy. The hosts are extremely warm and hospitable. My only complaint would be about the decor of the bathroom that didn't match the rest of the room. All in all highly recommended place.

Very comfortable room with large shower and deck. Hosts were very friendly and helpful, recommended good restaurants nearby and collected goods for us. Ralph also amended our bookings date at late notice without an additional fee - much appreciated. Great breakfasts and attention to the small things make a difference. Not entirely comfortable with Balinese style "open" shower, but thoroughly... More

I have stayed at Mariu guest house for 1 Night during a short business trip. The communication with Rolph was amazing and the booking was prompt. When I arrived I was treated very professional not to mention the amazing warm hospitality of both the relaxed atmosphere of the place as well as the owner. The rooms are of a by... More
