We stayed at the Country Manor on 4/30. We were traveling from Europe on our way to the Zulu Nyala Game Lodge and thought that this would be a logical place to stay as the two properties are affiliated. Prior to arriving, I have to say that I was very please with how accommodating the staff was is helping us to nail down our visit. I was also very pleased with our driver Neo. What a nice guy! Beyond that, we were not as pleased. Granted we were only staying for a night but the rooms were just OK and the bathroom was really bad. The shower sprayed water in all directions creating a big mess. It was obvious that the shower head needed to be replaced dur to corrosion. Lighting was really poor in the bathroom. The meal that we had (buffet style) was not great. Selection was poor and the food was really not all that appetizing. The animals that we did see were in what appeared to be in an enclosed area much like you would see in a zoo. Not that special.
We do plan to travel to South Africa again however we will not stay at the Country Manor if we are spending time in Johannesburg.
