Super Stay
If you are lucky enough to get a room at Manaar, you are bound to find a perfectly great stay. Hermann will take care of you like you are a long lost family member - I extended my stay twice during my time there, and right until my departure Hemann kept smiling and kept doing absolutely everything to make a long stay into a flawless one. The room was not overly decorated but incredibly neat and safe with lovely features and treasures in the fridge. Breakfast was great and made perfectly to order just about like everything else. If you like being treated like a friend visiting when you are away from home than this is probably the best choice you can make. 11/10 for Manaar.

Good 6,0
We were welcomed by a lovely member of the management and able to check in slightly earlier which we appreciated. The place itself has a lovely garden and nice pool but bare in mind the photos do make it look better - at least in our case. We booked the self catering unit which is bit tired looking and has a musty, grandma-ish smell which we couldn’t get rid of despite opening terrace and main doors. I feel like sofas especially need replacing. Bathroom was lovely and we had plenty of fresh towels (some with holes though). The B&B part might be nicer? We were looking forward to using the hot tub but it had a damp, musty smell as well and wasn’t very clean inside. Overall the places was slightly overpriced and wouldn’t book it again. Oh and I found a slug in the kitchen on the day of checking-in lol. Staff was very lovely and welcoming.

A comfortable safe place to stay
wonderful stay at the Manaar house. Arriving extremely late we were greeted with smiles and shown to our lovely room. Everyone was very helpful and generous which helped make our stay comfortable from a delicious breakfast to advice on where to head off for a day. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return as Umhlanga is breathtaking.
