Upon arrival we were a little concerned as the hotel doesn't look like much but we were pleasantly surprised by what we found inside. It is very clean and neat and met our expectations of a Garden Court. The staff was friendly and although we had an early departure they packed us all a lovely breakfast pack.

my check in was shocking for a four star hotel. I arrived from the airport at the hotel at 14h25 and my room wasnt ready. I was told to take a seat and wait whilst the room was being cleaned and that I will be informed when it was. I was never offered even a glass of juice whilst I... More

Traveling from Durban to Port Elizabeth, we needed a place to sleep in East London. We chose Garden Court. From check in to check out - a very pleasant experience with service levels above average. Room service was good as we chose to eat on our room (World Cup Soccer!). Worth a return, with a view of the ocean second... More

Stay indoors as everything you need is in store. Value for money, presentable and eager to help staff. Conference facilities are state of the art. It was a real pleasure doing business with the hotel.

Our family was planning on going out for dinner but the place we chose wasn't so great so we opted to go to Holiday Inn for a buffet dinner. The food as always was delicious and the service was friendly and fast. I was a little disappointed in the dessert selection but I do realize that different things are available... More

The comments made about Luckie need your immediate attention as this might cause you a serious business. The guy is very arrogant nad rude to say the least.We need people who can relate well to all the guests as well

Its a great place for family holidays when you have a tight budget, its right on the beach and next to lot of restaurants. I didnt like the fact that its too close to convinient shops. Whatever you do, dont compare it to Durban Garden Court.

keep up the good work , however price should be reduced for frequent guest, this is to ensure frequent guest coming back, and also for feedback this part of the survey is actually a bit long, and takes up too much time.
