We are so pleased we found the Manaar House. We arrived very early before check-in but were met by Jack and Hermann and made to feel so welcome. The rooms are big and very well equipped. Lovely big bed, large soft fluffy towels and lots of little touches to make staying there a complete pleasure. There is a lovely pool... More

We had a restful stay, which was much needed after comrades. My hubby made use of the warm jacuzzi to rest his tired legs. Breakfast was fresh and yum, set out on the terrace by the pool in a stunning garden setting. Bathroom was large and room was clean and had all the amenities you would need. The best for... More

We loved everything about Manaar House! Our room was tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. Nice sized bathroom and a kitchenette stocked with items at a very good price that we might have had to go out and buy. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, and served on a beautiful covered terrace next to the pool. Added plus was the care and... More

Cosy and friendly, the staff feel like family attending your every need. My room was cleaned daily and neutrally decorated with a very large bathroom. Breakfast was tailored to whatever I fancied and when I asked for something they didn't have, they got it for the next day?! Fantastic place, fantastic staff.....I could easily live there!

On our roundtrip through KwaZulu Natal we spent our last night at Manaar House, which is not far from the Airport (taxi approx. ZAR 300). A taxi to Umhlanga centre with its shops and restaurants costs about ZAR 30. Our room was small but cozy, with a large bathroom and very clean and welcoming. The small guest house has only... More
