As a family, we had to be in south Africa in July 2012 and it was a no brainier where we would stay after the wonderful time we had at the lodge in November 2011.

Everything was as excellent as usually. From the meet and greet at the airport to our speedy check in, simply excellent. But there where some surprises at the lodge, lynne had proactively installed CCTV monitors in the lodge for added security, revamped the menus at the lodge and was in the process of finishing a brand new patio for one of the rooms.

To me its simply amazing how committed to providing excellent customer services Lynne is. She would if possible, give a hand and a limb to make you as comfortable as possible.

We stayed in the lovely Venezia suite and we where extremely comfortable. My little daughter even had her own lovely bed set up and provided for by the lodge. Fantastic.
All the room amenities where in place and housekeeping was awesome.

We can't wait to come back to GALLO MANOR COUNTRY LODGE for it has truly become our home away from home.

Thank you so much Lynne. I have learnt so much from you.

Room Tip: Just talk to Lynne and she will suggest the best room for you needs. She always gets it right for us...

I was quite skeptical reading all the very good reviews for this Lodge, but all is true and I found more: warm and practical welcome, empathy and a charming way to make my stay efficient (limousine service, ability to use the facility and the magic table for business meetings and work sessions, ...) & comfortable (good advises for restaurants, visits, golf, ...). I organised myself to have a WE on site, and I don't regret it; I had the time and opportunity to discover a little of the South-African life style and history. So a big THANKS to our wonderful hosts !

If you are looking for a more quiet place where you can focus on an urgent assignment thast requires a lot of concentration, coupled with a most welcoming service at all levels, this is your place. I stayed there for a full week and I found everything most welcoming. I would like to express my gratitude in particular to Lynne, Mike and Tondi - Thank you very much for looking after me. I will keep the guest house in mind each time I travel to Sandton for a few days, and I will not hesitate to recommend it to other people be it those doing business or those wishing to celebrate some special time together as family, couples, friends, etc. Jane

Big thanks to Lynne and Mike for allowing us to have my parents 60th & 65th Birthday celebration at your Lodge. For the 40 people we had, it was perfect. The garden was spacious and open for the kids to play and for LaOuma spitbraai specialists to setup and do their thing.

Thank you for allowing us to use you facilities (crockery, cutlery, tables and chairs etc). The sit down event was most enjoyable and I must say my sister and I did a spended job with the decor.
I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a venue that is intimate and personal and right in the heart of Joburg. Well done to everyone especially my brother for providing gazibos and drinks etc. This family event is definately one to remember by all. Thank you. Will do that again!

Room Tip: I would choose a room near the pool area :-)

I stay every 3 months at Gallo Mankr Lodge for a week at a time.
It's excellent, peaceful and the service is outstanding. The owners are friendly and the staff go out of their way.
I recommend this guest house to everyone.

Room Tip: I love the rooms as the all are getting outside patios onto a stunning garden

I have stayed at Gallo Manor Lodge for 6 weeks and I couldn't be happier with the service I have received. Being here for such a long time on my own I wanted somewhere that would feel like home and this place ticks all the boxes.

From the moment I arrived I have been well looked after. Lynne (the hostess) is brilliant at giving advice on places to visit and she will even help you organise a trip. I would go as far as saying she has been like a second mum, who has gone out of her way to look after me.

The garden is really amazing and perfect to chill out in after a day at the office.

My room was really big and has everything you need. As a big sports fan I was pleased to have all the premium sports channels so I wasnt missing out on the action back home. The only disappointment was that England were rubbish again and Andy Murray couldn't win Wimbledon!

I worked in my room a fair bit and the Internet connection is good. There was plenty of power supply for me to plug all my gadgets in.

The location for me was perfect because it was a 5 minute drive to the office. There are also some good restaurants and shops nearby. There is a good pub called 'The Baron' near which has a good beer selection and top notch pub food. Always someone to talk to if your on your own!

I'm definately going to miss this place when I'm back in rainy London! If I ever come back to South Africa I will definitely be stopping by.

Room Tip: I stayed in the emerald suite. Very nice.
