We stayed 2 nights at the Manaar House in one of the self-catering units. They are very spacious and offer all facilities such as kitchen and laundry appliances. We appreciated the friendly staff and the close proximity to Umhlanga Rocks.

Cosy and friendly, the staff feel like family attending your every need. My room was cleaned daily and neutrally decorated with a very large bathroom. Breakfast was tailored to whatever I fancied and when I asked for something they didn't have, they got it for the next day?! Fantastic place, fantastic staff.....I could easily live there!
