Overrated and unpleasant
The dog, Herman, the dog
Never again. Breakfast was terrible. Jams were expired, stale croissants. Next morning I ordered oats which was a watery undercooked. Saw big cockroaches around pool/breakfast area. No phones in room so they come bang on your to talk to u. Didn't feel like I had privacy. Inconvenient location. Pics also a bit exaggerated.

An unforgettable experience!
There were more than 3 best things! Room, food, Service, location, Tina and Wayne, Monty (The dog),
I would go there again for sure! I felt like I was at home, not in a Hotel. Tina and Wayne made sure I arrived safely from the airport (Taxi) and greeted me at the door. They were so friendly and helpful it was unbelievable. The breakfast was incredible! The rooms (I stayed in 2 different ones)were very comfortable and enough space. Very clean and nicely furnished.

The perfect place!
Nice, tidy, high quality
It is easy to understand why this guest house gets the best reviews in the area. It is perfect: nice and clean, good service, fast free Internet, fine rooms, friendly hosts... no need to stay anywhere else.

Our favorite place to stay in South Africa!
Beautiful and clean apartment, safe area, with very helpful hosts!
During our 2 week tour of SA we stayed in 6 different places. This place was by far the cleanest and safest place we stayed in. Thanks to Jack and Mark for taking such good care of us. Wish we could have stayed for longer than 2 days!

Very pleasant comfortable place
Location, welcome, relaxed approach
We needed one night's accomodation prior to an early flight; Manaar House suited us perfectly. Was very friendly and relaxed, very comfortable (great bed, good-sized room, lovely soft towels), and out hosts were very helpful with directions, recommendations, and flexible to our needs.

Nette Atmosphäre und sehr herzliche Betreiber
Die Betreiber waren sehr freundlich und engagiert, das Badezimmer geräumig und schön, Whirlpool
Unser Aufenthalt im Manaar House war sehr angenehm. Die Leiter sind ausgesprochen nett und hilfsbereit. Leider ist die Lage ohne Auto etwas ungünstig, da der Weg zum Meer und den Reataurants sehr hügelig ist, weshalb man sich praktisch jedesmal ein Taxi rufen muss. Der Pool und Whirlpool beim Haus sind ein großer Pluspunkt (wobei die Wassertemperaturen nicht unbedingt unseren Vorstellungen entsprachen - Pool sehr kalt, Whirlpool heiß). Jedoch gehört der Whirlpool wieder einmal geputzt. Alles in allem waren wir aber zufrieden und es herrscht eine herzliche Atmosphäre im Manaar House :)
