Well signposted, secure, warmly welcoming, providing careful attention to detail and super comfortable with everything you need for an overnight stay. This is an ideal stopover between Durban and the Eastern Cape. I would definitely stay there again.

Staying over in Maclear was a spur of the moment decision, one that we'll never regret. Not knowing what to expect I phoned and immediately knew this is the place for us. We were welcomed like old friends and were not left on our own to figure out what to do about supper. The directions were precise and the food...

The room was clean but dark with no view at all. Bad joke that it was called Nkandla but looked out onto a swimming pool filled with sand. There are other rooms inside the house with nice views however. Breakfast was very nice but why serve it with salad and cold corn kernels? The host was very pleasantired.

I am sorry that you did not specify a room with a view when you booked, we would have done our best to accommodate you. Nkandla (Room 7) that you stayed in is one of our most popular rooms, the name was given by one our guests. In the interest of water conservation (and due to our cool climate) we...

We spent a short 2 day stay at Maclear Manor en route to Tiffendell. What a pleasant surprise to find this gem of a guest house in the small town of Maclear. Well appointed rooms and excellent service made this a wonderful 2 days for us. Dawn was an exemplary host who made us feel at home and spared no...

Myself and my family stopped over on short notice and were pleasantly surprised. Never before have we been so impressed with a Bed and Breakfast. Beds were comfy and breakfast was awesome. This guest house may have a 3 star rating but we recieved 5 star service! Anyone passing through Maclear and needing a stopover should look no further. Would...

I had a no hassle stay on my way through the town. Great reception, comfortable room, good advice on where to eat and friendly hosts. What more could you want? The hearty breakfast in the morning sustained me through the day.

We initially chose this stop because of its 'animal friendly' policy, but it turned out to be a good choice! The only small problem was that the manager had decided to take some leave, and the owner's varsity student son had been left in charge. To give him his dues, he tried hard to be helpful, and was very friendly,...

The hosts were very friendly although we did have to wait outside for them to arrive when we got there. The accommodation is lovely, lots of little things that make it special and plenty of hooks, tables etc. to put your stuff on. Our room had a distinct smell of wet dog though and the hair dryer and mozzie machine...

“We stayed in their upstairs room and will defiantly request this room again, as it has a private balcony to sit on - especially as it was in the high 30's when we visited.”
