I could not have chosen better! If you want a lesson in service Manaar House is the place to go for lessons. Nothing was an effort for Tina and Wayne and they went beyond what I thought was their call of duty. This was among the best places I have stayed in. Will definitely revisit and recommend.

Our stay at Manaar House was incredible! We arrived before the stated check in time, yet we were meet by Tina and Wayne who assisted and accommodated us immediately and without any hassle.

Unfortunately we only stayed one night at Manaar House, we could have easily stayed longer. Jack is a great host and very helpful whenever there was a question. He gave us great tips for a perfect stay at Umhlanga and we were a bit sad that we had to leave after only one night. Manaar House is tastefully decorated and...

What a wonderful place this is. Forget the big hotels they have no chance of providing the same hospitality, comfort and service the Manaar Hotel provides. Umhlanga is a brilliant place to stay with lots to do and great places to eat.

We stayed at Manaar House 3 days and we had a wonderful time. The breakfast was delicious, and the decoration of the house gave us the feeling being at home. Tina and Wyne were very helpful in providing us with any information we needed. Many Thanks for that. We will definitely recommend Manaar House to our friends and other visitors.

The warm greeting from Tina and Wayne was the beginning of a wonderful few days in Umhlanga. We stayed in the suite which had a lovely sitting area with spectacular orchids. The location of the B&B (away from the beach) was close enough for a quick drive yet away from the busy tourist area and wind. The highlight was the...

We arrived quite late from a long-haul flight from London and couldnt have been made more welcome. Our bedroom was very comfortable and the breakfast very good. We were given advice on where to visit on our way to the mountains. A lovely stay.
