I was one night at the Mariu Guest House and it was a peaceful place before going to the Kruger. It is apart from the center of Nelspruit and really quite and comfortable. Ralph and Charlene are really friendly and she prepare a nice breakfast the night before I leaved really early in the morning. You can easily visit the...

I am sorry to hear about Betty312583's unfortunate experience. Definitely a huge break-down in communications by the sounds of it Betty. I hope that your problem has been sorted out and that this incident does not put you off visiting South Africa and indeed Nelspruit again. Ralph and Charlene are the most helpful, interesting hosts, perhaps my sister and I...

We were in Marie Guest House on march 2013. We were there before and after our 4 days-safari in Kruger National Park and it was an excellent choice. The house is nice, charming, spacious and has lot of small details that give it a wonderfull decoration touch. Ralph and Charlene (the owners) are absolutely polite, very friendly and they helped...

The start of our 23 day South African tour began with four nights at the Mariu Guest House. Charlene & Ralph are awesome Hosts. First class hospitality, great breakfasts. The day we toured Kruger National Park, Charlene packed us a breakfast and lunch that was most enjoyable. Ralph gave us very good advice on roads to travel on to maximize...

Being a regular traveller, I was totally surprised at the lack of hospitality received from the host. Unfriendly welcome, parking is a HUGE problem and the room was sub-standard, supposedly "paraplegic friendly" but without the necessary to be classified as such. One has to guess which bottle is used for shampoo and which is body wash. No privacy in room...

Stayed at Mariu in March 2013. Sharlene and Ralph are meticulous hosts. Nothing appears too much trouble. The rooms are small, the bathrooms are basic and lack privacy and the floor coverings are sparse, but the area is quiet and a quality bed provides top sleep quality. The guest house is a bit out of town and we had difficulty...

Despite being a bit out of town in a suburb, this is a charming establishment and they went out of their way to accommodate all sorts of complex dietary needs, which was impressive. Also you don't feel your hosts until you come to breakfast and they are attentive. The only incident that was disappointing was when one of the guests...
