Perfect for a romantic getaway or just to escape the rat race. The rooms are beautiful and its tranquil enough for a yoga retreat. Wedding venue also available.No tv's in the rooms. Free WiFi. The owners Ray & Fiona are absolutely lovely

We really enjoyed our stay. To be away from the hustle of the daily rush was refreshing. Our kids enjoyed the pool and freedom they had when running around. We will definitely be back when possible. Thanks!

The Bella Manga Country House was a great location to stay in. Ray and Fiona, the hosts, gave us a warm welcome and were very friendly at all times. The place was very clean and quiet. We stayed in the honey moon suite including a king size bed and seperate bathroom with a nice bath tub. The breakfast was uncomplicated...

A lovely property, but we were were unable to spend a single night there as the cottage, especially the kitchen utensils and the bathrooms were terribly dirty and full of grime, including 100's of dead bees on the floors and in the beds. On complaining at check in, we were told that, "there is a broom in the cottage" (!!!)

If only these guests had come to us straight away and not 7 hours later we could have sorted the problem out. Very difficult to sort things out at 8 o'clock at night. Yes we did get a swarm of bees arrive at Bellamanga - we are a farm in a rural area but without being told during daylight it...

The chalet/farm house was disgusting. There was left over juice bottles from previous guest. There was tomato sauce on the magazine and the coffee table from previous guest. in one bathroom there wasn't a shower head and in the other bathroom the shower door didn't work and there was black mould all over the shower. The main light in the...

Very unfriendly guests from the start!!!! They were split into 2 groups - one couple with an unexpected baby in one of our silo rooms and another group of 4 in a forest lodge. Firstly, our forest lodge cottages are not filthy - as our girls are Government trainees we inspect our girls work on a regular basis, things do...

Fiona and Ray offer b&b and self-catering rooms. We had a rondavel, a round African little house. Perfect. Crispy clean sheets, king size bed, good bathroom, coffee- and tea- making facilities. Nice pool. Wonderful breakfast with fresh products. We loved the dogs, birds (lots of beautiful weaver birds nests) and just to walk around their grounds. Ray and Fiona are...

Sorry to say we had a terrible experience here. Called to request a late check in (9:30pm - hardly the middle of the night!) and Ray the owner was very agressive, told me that was unacceptable and we should find somewhere else to stay! Unfortunately it was too late to change our plans so I jumped in the car and...

Unfortunately, some of our girls are Government trainees - though you hope they listen to your guidance and training this is not always the case. I agree that the duvet inner looked bad but i must say that it was very very clean although it looked marked. Our checkin times are strict and we are not able to "leave a...

We stayed at Bella Manga over Christmas for 2 nights and had 2 rondevels for us and our 2 children. Wish we had booked for longer - everything was so perfect and we were incredibly well looked after. As soon as we arrived, Ray produced a detailed hand drawn map of the area with all the best local eateries and...
