Maryland Manor Guesthouse is committed to providing our guests and staff with a clean and safe environment by following COVID-19 safety and cleaning practices based on the guidance of local and world health experts. 

Our rooms are well-distanced from one another, and each is disinfected and cleaned daily. The linen is washed at a high temperature for optimal disinfection. There is an alcohol-based hands-free sanitizer at the entrance, and handwash in each bathroom. 

As the pandemic continues, we ask that you do your part to help curb the spread of the virus. Please wash your hands frequently, wear a mask and maintain physical distance. 

Our breakfast room adheres to social-distancing protocol, however, 

in the event that it is at social-distanced capacity, we can arrange for

your breakfast to be served at the outdoor patio or in your room

Please be prepared for your temperature to be checked on arrival. 


We look forward to welcoming you with a (COVID) friendly elbow-tap!

“It’s not just because I always feel super rested after passing through at the Maryland Manor Guesthouse. The friendly welcome is what keeps me coming back for more.

Yes, I’ve been to this intimate abode more than once because the hosts, the Stirton family, always ensure we’re settled in and take an interest in what we have planned without prying. The friendly staff have also consistently made us feel welcome – and did I mention the food. Is there anything that beats a farmhouse breakfast while overlooking the beach? 

Situated in the quiet suburb of Glenashley, we can reach every hotspot within minutes. Gateway, Sibaya Casino, old school Durban CBD – you name it. With the beach time and city trawling ahead, we manage to get out of our plush beds and head out for adventure. 

The intimate arrangement means you can know everyone who’s at the guest house during your stay. It’s just enough movement for extroverts, without compromising on peace for natural home bodies. 

I’ve also grown a tad attached to their adorable dogs and can honestly say, the visits often feel like coming home now. And isn’t that the ultimate goal for any weekend away.”

“Our stay at Maryland Manor met our expectations. We were welcomed with a smile and stayed in a beautiful elegant clean room with DSTV & WIFI. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and we really felt as if it was our home away from home. Easy access to leave and come and go as you please.    I would definitely recommend it to others.”

“Stayed over one night on a Business trip with 3 other Colleagues. We were all absolutely satisfied with the total expectation.We had a very good breakfast as well! We arrived in the dark but were surprised with a beautiful view of the ocean in the morning. I would definitely recommend this Guesthouse if you want to stay in affordable luxury.”
