Both owners incredibly rude to both myself and my wife, (also see other comments made by previous guests.) Nothing is ever their fault. It is their staff, the booking site or the guests who are the problem. Booking site indicated one rondavel left (see picture) which we booked on line but were informed after paying the deposit there were no...

Bellamanga, Owner at Bella Manga Country House, responded to this review

Without a shadow of a doubt the most miserable, insular, disagreeable people we have ever had stay here in 14 years. This all started because they booked the wrong accommodation through Booking.com - they insisted that they booked a rondavel whilst in reality they paid and booked our honeymoon suite - the Lavender Room. Complaint after complaint many of which...

Excellent five night stay in the absolutely beautiful family rondavel over Xmas. Very peaceful, relaxing grounds and friendly hosts and two friendly dogs. Ray and Fiona looked after us and our 11 year old daughter from start to end, and helped us hugely with the all important Xmas Eve stocking arrangements. Also allowed our daughter to bottle feed the little...

The area Bella Manga is situated in is beautiful and it was fairly well located for where we needed to go, the surroundings, dam and birdlife were excellent. However the lodge and service left a lot to be desired. While our welcome was friendly, the unrealistic check in hours (especially for people travelling far) resulted in a rude welcome for...

We had the most amazing experience, from arrival to departure. we were greeted by Tigre & Warrior! Ray & Fiona are like family, extremely hospitable & friendly! The rooms were beautiful, the food was fantastic. The pool was so inviting after a hot day out at Plett. Even though we stayed in the B&B Ray allowed us to have our...

Ray and Fiona were the perfect hosts. Great hospitality in a lovely country setting 12km outside of Plett. Comfortable rooms and amenities. This was a business trip, would definitely return with my family.

I have visited Bella Manga several times now and recommended it to many of my BA flying friends, family and work colleagues...they have all been equally impressed and I am certain, will return. I have just had 5 perfect days there. Just me. No work, no pressure, just pure, feet up, indulgence. Waking in the morning to birdsong and sun...

We stayed in both the self catering and the b& b self catering, and would like to recommend both to anyone wanting a great time in the countryside of Plettenberg bay. Terrific hosts Ray & Fiona made us vey welcome. And we would have no hesitation in returning. All in all a great time.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom self-contained cottage at Bella Manga, with our 2 kids. We LOVED it. The cottage was large and roomy, we shared an area with fire pit with 2 other cottages and had a pool (also shared). Kids loved feeding the horses carrots, watching the monkies on the roof and running around the large grassed areas....

A lovely find out of the maddening crowd, this is Bella Manga Forest Resort. A perfect place for a detox of our ever present electronic age of T.V. and computers. A heavenly place were one can enjoy nature at it's quietest. Brilliant "Starscape" as very little light pollution. A place of peace and tranquillity. On the downside I do acknowledge...
