Always nice to stay at Mariu. Charlene is a very good host and always tries to go the extra mile. The rooms are spacious, have dstv and the wifi is good. It is in a quiet and convenient part of town, close to shops and restaurants.

I was reluctant to write this review because I was a guest here for 3 years. This last visit I stayed there with my kids. My son accidentally wet the bed. In the morning when checking out, we apologized and offered to have the mattress professionally cleaned. I was told that the mattress doesn't have a mattress cover (ewww!) so...

As a family we have stayed there twice and on both occasions the hosts Ralph and Charlene were very spontaneous and organised. The rooms are clean, comfortable and good value for money. We prefer early breakfast (06:30) and was served by Charlene in a warm and friendly manner (especially it being a Sunday morning).

Mariu's is in an upmarket suburb with a beautiful garden and surrounds.The rooms are comfortable and immaculately clean and very well set out. The hosts are most friendly and helpful, however I was disappointed by the difficult cramped parking, one ply toilet paper and an old tube type TV in the room.

We always like to stay at Mariu's Guesthouse, visiting regularly from Maputo. Charlene and Ralph are very attentious, offering all kind of assistance imaginable. A warm place to stay, where you really feel as a welcome guest, not the least due to authentic personalities of Ralph and Charlene. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast is a la carte, your car...

We had such a lovely stay at this Guesthouse during InniBos Festival. The hosts are extremely friendly, warm and welcoming. One immediately felt at home. Rooms are very neat, comfortable and modern. The gardens are exquisite and if it was summer I would have been in that pool the whole day, it looked so inviting. The hosts go the extra...

I always looked forward to my business trips with my previous company as the overnight stay was not only affordable, but also luxurious, clean and modern. The owners are highly professional and have a fine eye for detail with customised customer service. The B&B runs like a well oiled machine. Home away from home. Highly recommended!
