Excellent as always, but Oh Caroline....

Guildford, United Kingdom

Staying at Belvidere Manor is always a high point of any trip to the Cape. The peaceful setting around a garden overlooking the lagoon is very special and being able to spread out into one of the cottages, for all the rooms are actually entire cottages, is great. The Bell pub on site is a very good place to enjoy a bottle of wine or a coffee and the food is varied and attractive. They have recently upgraded their WiFi so that it is now free and this is very welcome for travellers from outside South Africa. However I can’t help thinking back to the time, maybe ten years ago, when the restaurant in the Manor House, Caroline’s, was really excellent. Unfortunately it has been merely adequate on our last few visits, but now it is to be avoided. We were told it had been relaunched as a seafood restaurant and so we ate there one evening and should have guessed from the fact that we were alone that it wasn’t going to work well. The food was still merely adequate and the service was friendly, but ground to a complete halt after the main was served. We were deeply unimpressed by this dispiriting experience. Anyway, I highly recommend Belvidere Manor, but suggest give Caroline’s a miss.

ANOTHER LOVELY ANNUAL STAY AT BELVIDERE

Stratford-upon-Avon, United Kingdom

We have always enjoyed our Annual weeks stay in cottage 13 overlooking the Lagoon at Belvidere Manor.It is excellently appointed and caters for all our wishes and is in a great location. We find this quite a unique location which is why we have visited here for so many years. The only slight disappointment we found the breakfasts and service there standard had fallen.
