As a family we have stayed there twice and on both occasions the hosts Ralph and Charlene were very spontaneous and organised. The rooms are clean, comfortable and good value for money. We prefer early breakfast (06:30) and was served by Charlene in a warm and friendly manner (especially it being a Sunday morning).

Mariu's is in an upmarket suburb with a beautiful garden and surrounds.The rooms are comfortable and immaculately clean and very well set out. The hosts are most friendly and helpful, however I was disappointed by the difficult cramped parking, one ply toilet paper and an old tube type TV in the room.

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!

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 were about to go to another place before we knew about about... More

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
