We found the Mariu Guest House very hard to locate - mainly because there is no sign outside the complex - just a street number. Once inside however, it was a delightful haven from a long and stormy days travelling. The room was comfortable, well appointed and clean. Mine host was warm, welcoming and very helpful.

Mariu guest house greets you with the best views, imaginative and utterly Picturesque building style and the friendliest, most reliable service this side of the Mpumalanga border. The rooms are clean and well styled, the pool is gorgeous and clean and the breakfast is out of this world. Do yourself a favour- this is the place to stay in Nelspruit.

The place situated in a very nice environment. The rooms are spacy. The hosts are extremely warm and hospitable. My only complaint would be about the decor of the bathroom that didn't match the rest of the room. All in all highly recommended place.

Very comfortable room with large shower and deck. Hosts were very friendly and helpful, recommended good restaurants nearby and collected goods for us. Ralph also amended our bookings date at late notice without an additional fee - much appreciated. Great breakfasts and attention to the small things make a difference. Not entirely comfortable with Balinese style "open" shower, but thoroughly... More

Went to Nelspruit on business and was booked into this place for 2 nights. What can I say! Excellent service from the host Ralph and the beautiful Charlene.

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!
