Spent 4 nights at Bellavista Country Place. It is an excellent setting and the rooms are fitted to a high standard. Unfortunately, it was let down by 2 things. The pictures of the suite on their website show a totally different bathroom to the 1 in the suite. Our bathroom had a shower but no bath, though the website indicates there is a bath. As my partner really enjoys taking a bath whilst on holiday, she was devastated when there wasn't 1 and wouldn't have selected this suite if she had realised before booking. Requests to move to a suite with a bath were met with - the rooms are all occupied or guests are coming who have specifically requested these rooms. Probably more about charging more for the mirror-image suite with a bath! The other big let down was the fact that the licensed restaurant was closed for Winter & the Chef had left. As Bellavista is at least 10Km from any other restaurant, this was not good news, particularly if you were planning on sharing a bottle of wine over dinner! Also meant that breakfast was deliverd to your room in a hamper every morning. Novel on the 1st morning, OK on the 2nd, repetitious by the 3rd & 4th mornings. There was nothing I could find on the website to indicate the restaurant was closed, despite being told it was stated here. It is even advertised as Bellavista Country Place & Panorama restaurant, with quite a lot of detail about it in the info folder in the suite. South Africa now has a Consumer Protection Law and I would suspect the presentation could contravene it.
