With the hustle and chaotic traffic in Mthatha it is nice to return to the peaceful setting of the hotel. Just ask for an even number room so you would not hear the late night trucks passing through on the main road!

The room was clean and the bedding fresh. Staff were welcoming and helpful. But the price of the hotel does not match its quality. While the bedding was new and clean, the room itself was outdated, with a worn chair and battered furniture. The wifi (AlwaysOn) was out. I expect more having stayed at other Garden Courts in Ulundi &... More

Great place to stay in Mthatha. Would highly recommend it. The room had everything we needed. Good location on the outskirts of town. Security was good. Food was tasty with a good selection. Good value for money.

The Garden Court in Mthatha is well located, opposite the university and just a short distance from the city centre. Unfortunately it is on the opposite side of town from the airport and traffic is very bad crossing town at any time of day so leave time to get there, though the road is good all the way. The hotel... More

we spent a night at mthatha. the reception staff and duty manger were not conversant with the childrens policy and we ended up having to call the customer care centre to resolve the issue. i guess this put a damper on our stay. the furnishing in the family room was not what we expected and requires some attention.
