Latest Reviews

The Manyane staff were, without exception, charming, helpful, efficient and cheerful! And everyone in our party was impressed with the breakfasts!
The only reason I am not giving you the full 5-star rating is because our chalets (Nos. 39, 40, 41) are in need of some maintenance - specifically, lights not working, fans decidedly "wonky", shower drainage very slow.
