Our family of four all agreed that Belvidere Manor is one place we should plan to return to. We were provided a chalet with three bedrooms, a lounge area and kitchen, offering the option to self-cater. The chalets are set out across well-manicured lawns, with our rooms being very comfortable, two with en-suite bathrooms. Although we experienced a bit of ‘braai-envy’ at our neighbours who had chosen this route for dinner we decided to try out The Bell, the restaurant on pub on the manor’s estate. Big mistake! We arrived at 7pm and received our salad starters nearly two hours later. Why did we not cut our losses and move on earlier? We had already consumed a bottle of wine before we realised the kitchen was in trouble, so driving anywhere was not an option. Anyway, we eventually got fed and the food was pretty good. That experience aside, it did not diminish our Belvidere Manor experience and after a wonderful breakfast the next morning we departed, planning to return.
