Had the most pleasant stopovers at Marben Manor before and after a trip to Botswana. Great location, very close to OR Tambo yet quiet and beautiful rooms, excellent meals and really enjoyed meeting hosts Willem and Yvonne.

Being at Marben Manor really took the "pain" out of a business trip. It was home from home with friendly and excellent service. The extra mile was no problem. I will always go there when in Johannesburg. \ Thank you.

I stayed here for one night to catch a plane the next day. They picked me up from the airport and drove me back free of charge. Dinner and breakfast were delicious, room was spacious and clean, hosts are wonderful. There is a pool, playground for kids, and two very mild-mannered little dogs keeping watch.

We recently visited Joburg and stayed at Marben Manor. Their rooms are spacious and decorated nicely and the gardens are a paradise for bird watchers in a tranquil setting. Yvonne and Willem made us feel very welcome and treated us like part of the family. Truly a home away from home, we sat together during meals and exchanged stories from... More

I overnighted here just prior to a safari trip to Namibia. I found Willem and Yvonne to be excellent hosts. The included dinner was good and basic, but the Pavlova dessert was a highlight. Breakfast was delicious, and included a very nice variety of items like eggs cooked to order. Having a ceiling fan in my spacious room was nice,... More

Marben Manor is a great and secure place to stay. Well-appointed, spacious rooms and a real family welcome. Great selection for breakfast and dinner can be arranged in advance. Our dinner in the elegant dining room was home-cooked and delicious. Sociable conversation around the communal dining table was a welcome change from the usual insular hotel arrangements. Conveniently located close... More

We immediately felt at home at this delightful family owned and run guest house. Behind its secure walls and gates, Marben Manor boasts very comfortable rooms, a lovely pool (long enough for laps if we had been so inclined), a tennis court and beautiful grounds with plenty of native trees and plants. The soft birdsong added to the restful and... More
