1. Breakfast time bad for leisure travellers. 2. Laundry service was bad. We didn't have ironed clothes for 3 days.
Room was clean and wifi great.

Mine was a booking for a single person. On the booking.com site it said: Standard Double or Twin Room - Single Use. With my booking I requested a double bed. Since I prefer a double bed, I chose Mariu over another guesthouse that only had twin rooms. However, only AFTER the booking had gone through and had been confirmed, was I informed per email that I would have to pay an extra R175 per night for a double bed. I replied that I thought this should have been mentioned before booking, and received the following reply: "The choice on booking.com is not to mean it will be without cost. Single rate is for Twin beds, if you book single and prefer a queen then you have to put it under special requests, on which the guest house will respond to the guest if it is a request to be met with or without cost." I am not convinced by this, and I feel that the offer was misleading, and that such an extra cost should be clearly indicated. However, I am also not sure whether the responsibility for this lies with the guesthouse, or with Booking.com. Apart from this initial hiccup, there are a few things to be aware of. There is no full length mirror in the room. Although there are many TV channels offered, almost all are Sports channels, I could find no CNN, BBC or any of the regular ones. Finally, the room was not very soundproof. My neighbours were having a little 'domestic' and this was a bit awkward. Finally, read the small print! This is a guesthouse with rules. When you arrive late (after 7pm), there will be a R250 late arrival penalty. (I have never before heard of such a thing actually.) Also it was mentioned that having reserved a single room, I was not to bring overnight visitors to the room. In all, although the hosts were friendly enough, I found the guesthouse did not answer to the easy-going generosity that is a hallmark of the South African hospitality industry.
Well organized guesthouse run by a Dutch - South African husband and wife team. Thankfully the husband was on hand to carry my luggage up some very steep stairs! The room was spotless, with a nice little balcony. WiFi was exceptionally good and free.

Ralph and Charlene are excellent hosts. The guesthouse is absolutely spotless, breakfast is great and we are always well looked after.

Nothing to do with G.H but Jane Goodall centre is only 20 min away. If you plan to visit, call ahead as they tend to cancel tours without warning
Hosts were wonderful and extremely helpful! Nelspruit is not the most exciting place but the home felt like a tranquil place to relax.

We stayed at Mariu for 6 nights. On arrival we were offered to upgrade our room to a wonderful room with balcony. Location is great and safe, ideal for visiting the Kruger Nationalpark. Room was very clean and tidy. Ralph amd Charlene were wonderful hosts, always helping out with ideas! We loved this place!

Everything , read what i put on the like accidentally. Very important to read the detail. NOT luxury but guest house for company people travelling through who do not pay and do not care it has no personality.
So disappointing as we have travelled so far from overseas and arrived in Nelspruit and thought as it was on the high price for Nepspruit , had luxury in description, and high on review. Sad part is when you book you presume they are true facts about the place. The room was basic and the luxury , definitely not and we travel for 3 months a year , the en suite when you slide the door you saw a basin then left was a toilet and right a shower , metre wide...nothing luxury about that. Then we were told we could have breakfast at 6am or 8am, I felt like I was at school not my luxury holiday. The floor was cement , the pillow was extremely thin and we looked onto more brick paving and drive way on our metre wide balcony . As we had booked 2 nights we immediately realised big mistake unless we wanted to entertain ourselves in the room as there lounge did not feel a place of relaxing but passing through and they had a small eating area compose off 4 to 5 small tables . The breakfast was fruit- average, ceral -basic and cooked one slice of bacon, sixth of a fresh tomato ,eggs and one sausage, the coffee wasvery weak- awful , nothing generous. We had to make a decision do we value our time in Africa or hate the time, so we booked another hotel down the road which over looked the bush, where the room was twice the size and the en suite was 3 times the size and the breakfast and hospitality was superb and this only cost us and 100rand ($9) . You could not compare the 2 yet used similar description . Even though we only booked for 2 nights the same day for the room , they would not reimburse us , not even the 300 rand for breakfast . Where are the people responsible for false advertising . So wrong, there room should have said standard room and not lounge etc just room in guest house.

I had an amazing stay at Mariu guesthouse. The rooms are comfortable and quiet and the surroundings of the guesthouse were very tranquil with a beautiful garden, swimming pool and pond on the premises. The owners, Ralph and Charlene are very friendly and helped me with information regarding Kruger park, driving the panoramic route and my forward travel plans for other cities in South Africa.

Asa businessman who travels a lot, always using the hotel/guesthouse to meet my high profile clients who in most cases prefer to meet in quite venueswith less trafic. I was refused to meet a very high profile person on the premises of the guesthouse because its their policy not to allow visitors or non-paying people on their premises. I will never ever book at that place in my life and I won't recommend them to anyone.
The area in which it is located is nice and quite perfect for business travellers.
