We stayed 2 nights during our August 2011 safari vacation in South Africa. Immediately, we were part of their family! Yvonne and Willem and their son treated us like royalty, yet it was such a beautiful “homey” feel. The food? SUPERB!!!!!!! The hospitality? GRACIOUS!!!! The welcome? WONDERFUL!!! The leaving for our return flight? SAD!!!

Each room was impeccably clean, and the fresh lavender on our pillows – a relaxing touch! Too cold in August to enjoy the pool; however, the grounds were beautifully maintained with gorgeous flowers still in bloom. We would highly recommend Marben Manor to ANYONE going to South Africa !!!! 5 stars all the way 🙂

Room Tip: Our group had 4 rooms – any of their rooms would be perfect!
