An enjoyable stay in a well staffed, stylish setting. The accommodation was excellent: clean, comfortable, well equipped and with good air conditioning. The food was good and Rene was a kind, helpful hostess who contributed a great deal to making my visit so enjoyable. Many thanks.

During the first week of October I took a girls Water Polo team down for a Water Polo Tournament.
Rene welcomed us with open arms and any request I made was never too much for her.
The rooms were all spectacular, they were clean, the beds were comfortable and the mini bar was stocked with all kinds of goodies.
The guesthouse is ideally located close to the beach, casino and shops.

Brilliant service and awesome accomodation for the yearly Iron Man event held in Port Elizabeth. This is the third year in a row that we have stayed at Marren House and it just keeps getting better. Rene and the staff are friendly and helpful and go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Marren House is a very comfortable and clean Guest House.

Rene makes you feel at home and is willing to assist wherever she can. From twisted ankles to suggesting fabulous restaurants, as well as sitting with you and sharing a glass of wine and a family story.

There is also ample parking that is not awkward to navigate.

The Guest house it conveniently located close to the airport, the boardwalk, lovely restaurants etc.

Highly recommended.

Easy to find, nice, clean comfortable accommodation. Perfect for a short stay in PE. Rene and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Monkeys in the trees next door provide a bit of wildlife entertainment.
