I have lived here for almost six years and it has brightened up my life the support is amazing and the staff are excellent. The food is fantastic and I can't recommend it more highly. My room is excellent as are all the rooms, all rooms are deep cleaned on a regular basis, plus the usual cleaning every day. We have a spacious dining room with a tv and there are tea/coffee making facilities for all to use if able otherwise there are always staff on hand to make you a drink. There is a computer room and a nice lounge with another large screen tv., all our rooms have tv's as well, some residents have Sky freeview and some of the residents pay for the Sky package which I am included in. Overall the home is excellent and I would like to thank Black Swan for making my life so much better.

Thank you Ian, we are delighted that you are so happy at Belamacanda and appreciate you taking the time to publish such a wonderful review.


The staff are nice, have made lots of friends here. The vegetarian food I have for myself is good with the best chef. I enjoy the Karaoke and disco nights with the weekly clubs.
