After reading all the previous reviews my hubby and I decided to stay here for 3 nights. Everything is true, Hermann and Jono were at our service to give us great recommendations on where to eat and to make our stay one that was welcoming and comfortable. Thanks again Andrea and Perry

This is a lovely, neat, comfortable and well located B&B. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. It also has a gorgeous balcony that has a peak of the sea. We will probably be staying here again soon. i highly recommend this to any family.

We really enjoyed our stay at this B&B. Jonathan and Herman cannot do enough for you, including going out to fetch us pizza on our first night, when we were all exhausted from our grueling journey. Monty, the gentle dog, is also pretty cool. The rooms and gardens are lovely and the house is obviously located in an upmarket area.... More

We stayed in the two-bedroom appartment for five nights. The appartment was spacious, clean and well decorated. We enjoyed the nice, comfortable atmosphere and very friendly staff. The location of Manaar Guest House is quite good, just two minutes to the beach by car and about 15 - 20 minutes to Durban. Breakfast was great with a good variety of... More

This is a wonderful guesthouse in quite a posh area whose owners have paid close attention to details. It is within walking distance of the beaches, which was handy for me since I did not have a car. Breakfast is served beside the private pool; there is also a jacuzzi. My room had a fan, satellite TV, and WIFI. The... More

We had the 2 bedroom apartment for the extra space and so we didn't see the B&B rooms. We paid a small amount extra for breakfast. Ample lounge furniture, DSTV, dining table.
