We always like to stay at Mariu's Guesthouse, visiting regularly from Maputo. Charlene and Ralph are very attentious, offering all kind of assistance imaginable. A warm place to stay, where you really feel as a welcome guest, not the least due to authentic personalities of Ralph and Charlene. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast is a la carte, your car...

We had such a lovely stay at this Guesthouse during InniBos Festival. The hosts are extremely friendly, warm and welcoming. One immediately felt at home. Rooms are very neat, comfortable and modern. The gardens are exquisite and if it was summer I would have been in that pool the whole day, it looked so inviting. The hosts go the extra... More

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!

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.
