Reviewed 24 January 2014

All people are very friendly, facility is fantastic, food is excellent. This is my home away from home. They even offered to drop me off at airport and pick me up on my return. My vehicle was stored at their premises at no extra cost at all.

After a 6 hour very tiring drive from Kwa-Zulu Natal, we had a great stay at the Malandela Guest Manor. After searching very hard for a decent accommodation, we were gracefully welcomed by Marine.We had a very delicious breakfast, wonderful view with fresh air. Unfortunately our stay was cut short due to business we had come for went accordingly and we were on our way back home that very same day. Thank you very much and would not mins seeing you again soon for a longer visit.

After our 2 week safari 7 weeks ago we arrived at our hotel booking and were advised we had been “transferred “ to Malandela Guest House despite our booking having been paid for many months previously.
What a pleasant surprise awaited us, a lovely guest home with beautiful gardens and swimming pool and wonderful comfortable beds in a modern new accommodation addition completed within the last two years.
Marina and Danie our hosts, made us feel as if we were personal guests staying with them and nothing was too much trouble; Marina’s restaurant meals were delicious and it was lovely to sit with her around her dining table to discuss the similarities of our countries. A real gem to find and very close to the airport, a most enjoyable 2 night stay and; would love to stay again sometime.

Room Tip: All rooms had the same quality and would suit most tourists

I arrived at the Johannesburg South Africa airport with a group only to be told that the hotel I had booked was overbooked. That hotel had arranged for 14 of us to go to the Malandela Guest Manor. That turned out to be a wonderful experience-even an improvement over my previous choice. The facilities were exceptional, the food was great, the hospitality was excellent. My group shared experiences with the other travelers at the original hotel the next day as we traveled on to Victoria Falls and we all concluded we would choose Malandela Guest Manor. You will not be disappointed.

When my sister and I (both in our early 20s) decided to travel to South Africa from Vancouver, Canada for adventure, almost everyone we told advised us against it because of its dangerous reputation. Our experience at Malandela was one that we will never forget. We arrived at Malandela after our Kruger Safari when our original hotel we had booked with told us they had no rooms available. With little knowledge of the surrounding area and how we were to get dinner, Marina and her husband went over the top to make us feel comfortable and safe. They invited us into their living room to watch a Springboks rugby match and later Marina drove us to a restaurant so we could grab a bite to eat. We had to fly out at 7am the following morning and just as we were packing up to leave Marina brought a tray of biscuits and tea to our room so we wouldn't be hungry for our flight. We were extremely touched by the family's story, how welcome we felt and their generosity. They went above and beyond and when we go back to South Africa we will book directly with Malandela.

After an 18 hour flight, a 3 hour delay at the airport, and then no rooms at the place we had reservation, we were located to Malandela! I'm so glad we were. Marina is an amazing woman with a heart for hospitality. She and her husband went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and rested. The accommodations were beautiful and inviting. She was not expecting us for dinner (11 of us), but ran into the kitchen to put something "together quickly" and she provided an amazing feast of lasagna, salad, and sides as well as ice cream for dessert! For this weary traveler, this was just what we needed. Everything about our stay was perfect and we were so grateful for the care and hospitality we received down to her making sure our bus arrived on time to get us to the airport the next morning!

After a 14 hour flight from the U.S. to South Africa, Malandela manor is just what I needed to relax and wind down! The charming and inviting feel made it seem more like coming to a second home rather than a hotel. The owners are lovely and so hospitable and the rooms were so nice. The food was excellent as well as my overall all stay. I hope to visit Africa again along with the malandela manor!
