We stayed in the Giglio Boutique Hotel for 3 nights and we were absolutely delighted about this hotel. It‘s very new, stylish and modern. At the moment there are only a couple rooms but we‘ve heard that they are about to expand in the near future.
When we arrived, we received a whole bottle of a delicious wine as a welcome drink (which they bought especially for us as we wanted a sweet white wine). When we went on a safari and had to get up quite early they arranged an amazing breakfast at 5:30am (!!!). Each and everyone of the staff is so friendly and helpful. Especially the girls at the reception are super nice and outstanding.
Hope to stay in the Giglio Boutique Hotel again soon as everything was absolutely amazing. Thank you and we‘ll be back soon.

This is an awesome hotel. Only a few Suites at this hotel, and the people and the staff are outstanding. The restaurant will accommodate all guests at almost any time of the day. Wonderful swimming pool, just outside the restaurant. The security of the property is surrounded by a 10 foot tall wall with electrified security wire above the tall wall. The only down side to this property is the location in the middle of no where. Not much within walking distance for a safe stroll, so most outside activities require a car and driver.

After a late arrival at Joburg airport the transfer arranged via the Giglio was waiting for us. The hotel is closely located to the airport. Upon arrival in the hotel the bar was closed which is unfortunate but a nice bottle of wine was arranged. The rooms are really nice, spacious, clean and bed very comfortable. The only minus was that the open shower flooded the room. Breakfast is very good, fresh juices, and different choices of eggs or toasts. The hotel is fenced and there is security which gave us a nice safe feeling. The pool area looks nice we had to travel further the next day so did not have time to use it.

We booked this hotel for a couple of nights either side of a flight down to Port Elizabeth from Johannesburg based upon the look of the rooms and the previous reviews. I must say that the whole experience exceeded my expectations. Our room (no. 8) was beautiful with possibly the comfiest bed I have ever slept in. Lovely complimentary snacks and coffee. However, Trudene and her staff really made the stay memorable. I just generally felt that they were keen to help in anyway they could to ensure we had a great time, from arranging a tour, booking airport transfers to holding our spare luggage whilst we were away. The sliders we had for lunch were delicious and the breakfast was generous in portion size and beautifully cooked. Would definitely stay here again when we return to South Africa.

Was a delightful surprise to find this lovely haven in Johannesburg. The rooms are all named after wine grapes and we really lucked out in being able to join a food and wine pairing dinner that the hotel was hosting. The meal was excellent as were the breakfasts. There is a shopping strip in easy walking distance that has plenty of restaurants for a casual meal which we did on our second night. The staff were most accommodating and friendly.

After staying several times in JHB in conventional large and declining Hotels, I found the GIGLIO Boutique and don't regret it. Everything is perfect and the small size of this Boutique Hotel offers a top ranking personalized service you won't find anywhere else. The restaurant is managed by a Chef who would deserve at least 1 Michelin Star in France. Food is just great. Special thanks to Rodney, the taxi driver working with Hotel whose smile and good mood is a daily source of hapiness.Don't hesitate. Go go go to GIGLIO Boutique Hotel.

I knew when I booked this hotel I would not be disappointed. It is beautiful with everything you could possible want and only 20 minutes from the airport. My room was beautiful with both amazing shower and a bath tub. I used them both because I couldn't decide between the two. Dinner was in a very romantic restaurant and the food was delicious. I was sorely tempted to swim in the lovely pool shimmering in the sunshine inspite of the winter temperatures. The staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. This will definitely be my' go to' place every time I visit Johannesburg. The area is safe and it was a pleasure to walk 30 minutes along a tree-lined street to a enormous shopping centre. Don't hesitate to book.

Spent a week here for couples holiday, combined with golf at nearby Glendower. Very nice and clean rooms, friendly and service minded staff. Breakfast is excellent, and the food high quality. For me to rate it 5 stars, I woule like to see. i) a little snack service/to fo with the fine wine by glass offering. ii) more variety in the menu iii) gym, even a small one would do nicely. For the gym part, there are two large ones within 10 mins by car. To summarize, a top notch eatablishment with personal service that delivers. Depending on how long you stay, a car is strongly advised and hotel has plenty of secure parking. All in all, a very good experience.

We visited the restaurant at the Giglio Boutique Hotel to celebrate my son and daughter- in- law's wedding. The setting is perfect, and the Hotel has a lovely ambiance.
Some of our group follow a vegan diet and we ordered vegan options from the menu.
It was a total disappointment. The food was definitely not fine dining quality and did not complement the Hotel. If the Hotel can fine- tune this aspect, it would really be a place to recommend.

Hi Could you advise re airport transfers - time and cost? Thankyou

My suggestion is to give the Hotel your arrival schedule and ask for the Hotel to arrange a third party trusted driver to meet you. My driver named Alon, was very helpful. Taxi are not considered safe. Uber is likely safe for man, but not for a woman traveling alone. The drive should be less than 30 minutes and the hotel price was $46 US dollars and paid on my hotel invoice.
