The whole stay was just a pleasure from the Welcome, Rooms, Beautiful situation and Views, Delicious Dinners - all with friendly Professional Service. Added to which, a most enjoyable and informative pre Breakfast Walk and a first for us - Olive Oil tasting. Thank You.

The rooms are well furnished and comfortable with a private verandah and a bathroom which includes an outside shower. There are extensive grounds with plenty of opportunity for...

A lovely few days. The food, room, restaurant / main building, pool, hot tub gazebo and views (from our room, from the restaurant and generally around the estate) were all truely excellent and top end - which sadly can't say about many places! Service was usually excellent as well, although the odd random bit still evolving to get there. Enjoyed...

What a great start to our Honeymoon. The staff at Galenia were very welcoming and nothing seemed too much for them. Beautiful views from every corner of the estate, from our secluded outdoor shower and patio to the Jacuzzi and hiking trails. Cheese platter and wine at the pool really let you relax. Meals and olive oil tasting help you...

The rooms are lovely and each have a private terrace and outdoor shower as well as an indoor bathroom. Lovely guided walks available with Walter. Really good...

Booked the Galenia estate for two nights, 3 adults and two children. A week later I receive an email stating that our children cannot be accommodated at the hotel as per their website terms and conditions. They then ask me to send a cancellation request and proceed to charge me for canceling the booking (5,200 ZAR). Truly upsetting to lose...

The location of the estate is just a few minutes drive from Montagu. There is a larger main building and the cottages are nearby. Everything is nice and clean and the view is wonderful. You can sit very privately outside on your patio, protected from the sun, and enjoy the animals walking around. Service is very good and friendly There...

Wow. We loved this place. Beautiful setting in gorgeous countryside, immaculate room with an outdoor shower which is very private and feels very luxurious. Lovely breakfast with a fabulous view. We ate dinner here one evening and it was of a very high standard. A touch pricey, but we felt it was well worth it as a treat for a...
