We stayed for a night as we were flying back to the UK the next night. Was very relaxing. Beautiful gardens and good range of tv channels. Lovely spa bath and plush furnishing. Lovely relaxing place and very central to get around Joburg in one of the nicest suburbs. Breakfast could have been a higher quality for a 5 star...

We stayed at Gallo Manor Country House in December, Lynn welcomed our family of 6 and we stayed in 3 of their rooms, all equally charming. The rooms are spacious, the beds and linen of luxurious quality and the gardens and bird life truly beautiful. The lodge is conveniently situated a short distance from Sandton and Fourways. The owners were...

I enjoyed my stay at Galo Mannor very much. The room itself was very comfortable, as was the huge bed. Bathroom was nice with a shower that had a nice strong waterflow. Just enough in the fridge (drinks, sweets etc). Security was excellent, but it was also easy to get in and out of the house and the exterior gate....

Stayed there in "Out of Africa" suite for 4 nights in May 2013, as my favorite B&B has been sold out. Gallo Manor is on the outskirts of Sandton, close to major highways, in a gated community.

Constructive critisism is of great importance to the effective running of our business and we go to great lengths to address any questions that our guests may have.

We only stayed over for two separate nights due to awkward scheduling of our onward flights, but we could not have picked a better place to stay. Sandton is a very 'upmarket' suburb outside of the centre of Johannesburg, in a beautiful estate location. The whole place looks as though it has just been prepared, in pristine condition. The garden...
