Manaar House is beautiful everything is tastefully done with good linens and towels, pretty surroundings and a really lovely little pool and patio area. The hosts are friendly and helpful, the breakfasts good. One of the best B&B's I've stayed in .

The Maanaar House is a lovely place. The pool, the jacuzzi and the room, they are beautifull. But in the end it's all about the people. And that's what makes the stay unique: the hosts are great! One of the best experiences in Afrika!

We've just returned from a 4 night stay at Manaar House. If you are looking to stay in the Durban North or Umhlanga area this is the only place to stay.

Many thanks to Jack and Mark for a very warm welcome to their charming place in Umhlanga. Perfect rooms, excellent breakfasts, plans made to resolve problems, in short a professionally run operation centred around the needs of their guests. That is increasingly difficult to find these days, and I wholeheartedly recommend this establishment to all travellers heading for Umhlanga.

I loved Manaar House! It was comfy and relaxing while also feeling like a special luxurious treat. The breakfast was by far the best I had throughout my entire trip. I wish there were more places like this.

As always we could not have asked for better hosts. Manor House is an amazing place to stay. Tina and Wayne always go the extra mile to make sure we felt at home.

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.
