What a pleasant stay at Manaar House! The accommodation was fantastic - the bathroom in particular was gorgeous - the hospitality was friendly, professional and welcoming. The overall experience was wonderful. The parking area is not for the faint hearted, however, Jack and Mark were always willing to assist, which made it easier. Thank you for a wonderful stay and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful, tranquil and stylish place just to “get away”.

Had a fabulous 3 nights in the self catering apartment at Manaar House. The hosts were very friendly and had great advice on where to visit and eat near by. The apartment was clean and well presented. Would recommend to others.

Ons het so lekker gebly. Alles wat ons nodig het vir 'n lekker wegbreek. Pragtig, veral die badkamer, en skoon. Die gasheer was baie vriendelik en het ons welkom laat voel. Sal verseker weer daar draai.We had such a great stay. It had everything we needed for a wonderful breakaway. Beautiful, especially the bathroom, and clean. The host was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We will definitely make another turn here.

Our stay was refreshing and very comfortable. The guesthouse mangers were extremely well organized, friendly, professional and catered for our every need and accommodated us with a late check-in. The accommodation is much more spacious and luxurious than the pictures reveal. There were ample interior decorative details which work so well together and presents the unit in such a elegant and homely fashion. We really got much, much more than what we paid for. We enjoyed our stay very much and shall return very soon. In my opinion there is no better value for money. Manaar House has it all.
