I had stayed at Manaar House a couple of times so when I needed to be close to Gateway Hospital, Manaar House was an obvious choice for me. Room 3 was my home from home for 2 weeks. It is a large room with a seated dining area and a lovely private patio which is comfortably furnished, cool and inviting. The kitchenette in the room was perfect for heating supper snacks and the fridge in the room was well stocked with cool drinks and chocolates. If you fancy a drink from the bar, Herman makes a very good G & T! There is a good selection for breakfast and the hot serving is cooked to order. Johnathan, Michael and Herman are fabulous hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. I certainly gave them the run around with my booking extensions but they managed all that with great charm. They were all exceptionally kind and caring which I so appreciated. Thank you!

Dont even think of looking elsewhere....just book it. The room is modern and pleasing. TV had all the channels I wanted. Lovely hot shower. WiFI is excellent. Matress gets a 10 ! Drinks and chocs left in the fridge for your convenience. Literally 12 min stroll to the main beach (they even provide swimming towels). The Jacuzzi hot tub by day or at night is WON-DER-FUL. Breakfast served at the pool is delicious ....and 2 cups of coffee is a must, while you read the paper in this tranquil setting. I have already recommended to friends. Hermann and Michael EXCEL as hosts.....and everything you ask for, .....Hermann says "perfect".....which sums up the whole place.

Great location near to King Shaka Durban Airport. Friendly welcoming staff. Superb breakfast. Umhlanga Rocks centre an easy few minutes drive away. Rooms tastefully decorated. A great base for your trips into Durban and the surrounding region.

Perfect position, away from the bustle of Umhlanga, with a cool pool and nice setting after the long hot days. Great hosts, and really lovely rooms to stay in. Great breakfast on the patio overlooking the pool.

Stayed: March 2018

We visited a lot of lodges and B&B 's traveling troughout SA.
The personal approch of Herman made us feel comfortable and ' at home '
The services were excellent, as in many places, but the human touch remains very important.
