We flew in from California and had two different overnight stays traveling to Madagascar and Botswana. Transfers to and from the airport. It was like coming to a beautiful park with gorgeous landscaping. Meals are prepared with love, coffee and hot milk in a very special tea cozy, you can not get that in a hotel. The owners create a...

Our family of 5 stayed here when we arrived from New Zealand. Airport transfers were great, very welcoming people, lovely dinner and breakfast. A great place to rest after long flights. They were kind enough to store 2 bags for us for the 2 weeks we were in SA before we went on to Tanzania to climb Mt Kilimanjaro.

Very obliging hosts that went out of their way to make you feel at home. Friendly and helpful and we felt we got to know them very quickly. Airport transfers very helpful and the rooms are attractively arranged around a central pool.

Had the most pleasant stopovers at Marben Manor before and after a trip to Botswana. Great location, very close to OR Tambo yet quiet and beautiful rooms, excellent meals and really enjoyed meeting hosts Willem and Yvonne.

Being at Marben Manor really took the "pain" out of a business trip. It was home from home with friendly and excellent service. The extra mile was no problem. I will always go there when in Johannesburg. \ Thank you.

I stayed here for one night to catch a plane the next day. They picked me up from the airport and drove me back free of charge. Dinner and breakfast were delicious, room was spacious and clean, hosts are wonderful. There is a pool, playground for kids, and two very mild-mannered little dogs keeping watch.

We recently visited Joburg and stayed at Marben Manor. Their rooms are spacious and decorated nicely and the gardens are a paradise for bird watchers in a tranquil setting. Yvonne and Willem made us feel very welcome and treated us like part of the family. Truly a home away from home, we sat together during meals and exchanged stories from...
