Lovely welcome after long drive. Felt very much at home. Breakfasts were fab. The accommodation was varied and comprehensive and can cater for all requirements from secluded self catering cottages to rondavels and b&b. Any requests or observations were immediately attended to. We are very happy to recommend Bella Manga and hope to return. Ray & Fiona should be proud...

We had a nice African round house, loads of good tips on things to do and enjoyed the tranquility of the place. Owners were very friendly, good place to relax. Pool and garden were also nice to spend a late afternoon before dinner. We recommend the place.

We all have those friends who make the best hosts: they welcome you into their inviting homes, give you tips on how to experience the best their town has to offer, and know how to prepare their guests a delicious meal with gusto. This is the Bella Manga experience-magnified of course, by the beautiful countryhouse and surroundings Ray and Fiona...

We discovered this little piece of Paradise last year and made sure it featured top of our list again this year. Ray and Fiona are great hosts at Bella Manga with Rooms, Pool and gardens beautifully appointed and maintained. Our 4 days there were quiet and idyllic.... Exactly what we needed!

We stayed in a forest lodge with beautiful forest surroundings. The lodge is adequately but not luxuriously furnished and a little overpriced. Some of the DIY could have been carried out better by Mr Bean (how the bathroom towel rail stayed attached to the door is a mystery)!! The gardens and pool are well tended with an evening visit from...

beautiful place to stay, nice things to do, nice hosts, but very businesslike (bpo breakfast). I recommend to stay in the rondavel; we recommend a game drive in the plettenberg game reserve next corner. We stayed with our little daughter.

This is our fourth visit to Bellamanga, and it improves every time, Marie, my wife and I have managed to extend our visit to two months this time. It is wonderful to see Ray and Fiona again, who are outstanding hosts, along with their beautiful herd of cattle. I was surprised to read the previous review, where they lost some...

We stayed 4 nights and our impression was very good. Ray and Fiona were very helpful from the beginning and area + cottages were nice. Great basis, even if somewhat distant place, to visit the attractions in Plett area. Decent breakfast. Close to the fantastic game reserve to see animals. The price/quality is good. In fact were were convinced to...

We too have mixed feelings here, as when our guests arrive they come in to register and there Ray gives them a map of Plett and the surrounding area pointing out restaurants, attractions, location of beaches along with information about their room and our in-house policies one of which is where the safe is located in their room. This he...

We loved staying at Bella Manga - it ticked all the boxes for us. It was very peaceful and quiet, Ray and Fiona were both very helpful and friendly - from setting up a bbq to serving an excellent breakfast.

Bella Manga was disappointing for a number of reasons: 1) In the week we stayed they never changed our linens or replaced our towels. 2) They did not clean up after the last guests – we found a cigarette in a drawer and beer cans under the beds 3) No cleaning supplies (like dish towels or trash bags) were supplied...

Well these people certainly had their money"s worth - EIGHT ADULTS booked into a cottage for 6 adults and 2 young children. They left without saying a word and left the cottage in a disgusting state - it took 3 maids all day to clean-up after them. Yes we charged them R187 for breakages which was both crockery and glasses...
