I had been to South Africa on 3 different occasions and stayed at the Intercontinental hotel, which was alright for me. So when my sister mentioned a lodge, I was very apprehensive. To my surprise, Gallo Manor was impressive and much better than I could have imagined. The Room décor was up to par with the hotel I had stayed and in some instances, better. The garden, which all of the 6 family members could not stop raving about, was so breathtaking (which make sense with the daily gardening service). All I was expecting was the run of the mill bed and breakfast but the service was also top notch with Owner and proprietor, Lynne, making herself available to us every morning as we ate breakfast like we were all one big family. It had good internet connection that my whole family was able to connect with a total of 4 IPADs and multiple laptops. The only issue was the mile or two distance from the downtown center, which on the other hand could also explain the quiet and peaceful night rest, so I cant complain too much about that. Besides, Lynne had a fleet of taxi providers at the immediate disposal. I really enjoyed it and quickly realized my tenure with the hotel chain was over for my South African visits.
