My home away from home...highly recommend Gallo Manor Lodge. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Chrissy's food is amazing. Guests will definitely enjoy staying here. More than enough plug points for devices. The garden with pool is beautiful and inviting. Love it here.

We stayed at the Gallo for 5 days and it was a really great experience. The service is excellent, it is a beautiful property and everything is clean. The area is closed off with security booms and we felt really safe while staying there.

I was disappointed as I had read great reviews on Trip Advisor, but when I got to the Gallo Manor Country Lodge I found that the service was poor, there was a lack of attention to detail, the evening meal was not very good. I did not sleep very well because of the noise of pipes when other guests used... More

I stayed at this lodge with my wife and two children. We booked the family suite. The price was excellent considering how great the lodge is- I wouldn't have complained if I had to pay double what was charged! The lodge is located in a nice and quite suburb inside a compound with good security. My check in was swift... More

Did I say amazing yet?? I immediately felt more like a family member then a guest. Lynee keeps this property exquisite and her staff is so welcoming. I truly enjoyed my stay and was calmed by the sense of peace that draws you in there. I was on a mission trip to SA for the "World Orphans Organization" setting up... More

I was expecting "nice," but this truly exceeded my expectations. Lynne and her staff were extremely accommodating, and everything was just beautiful! Breakfast was tasty, and I loved that there are hot options (including bacon made to order!). When I return to Joburg, I will definitely be staying here again, and I'd recommend this property to anyone.

Great people. The owner, the stuff, the hotel. Keep it up. Everything was just perfect. Our Transportation was all through them, these people are not after money but serving their guests.
