While stopping over in Johannesburg I stayed at the Garden Court Hotel at the airport. It is a fraction of the price of the Intercontinental but seemed to hold up just fine. The room was what I needed and the breakfast was very good. The attached bar/grill had a nice evening meal. No complaints at all.

This hotel is perfect in location for a stopover and a great nights sleep before travelling onward. Location is minutes from the airport and a free shuttle is available at arrivals level to the hotel. Beware if many people hustling to help take you to shuttle snd demanding payment. Ask directions at tourist info desk, very easy to find. Nice... More

I booked a room at the Garden Court near the airport. They have a courtesy shuttle and the drivers are courteous and pleasant. The room is comfortable and although you are close to the airport the place is very quiet and I enjoyed a peaceful night. The staff at the reception is pleasant too.

We found the staff [checking in, service at breakfast and checking out] very good. The only really irritating part of the hotel's service was a totally incompetent air-conditioner in the room. Also the online booking displayed a different rate for parking that we had to pay

Warm reception received, staff were helpful and guided us to the different facilities available i.e. restaurant, gym and pool area. They took you to exactly where you were going and did not just point out the way. I guess some of us like to be held all the way!

Unlike my experience with the Garden Court in Sandton, this stay was excellent. When I told the woman at reception I had not slept a wink due to room noise in the other property, she put me in a quiet, corner room which was incredibly appreciated. The other reception didn't care at all. Staff helped out with taxis, room service... More

Very concerned about the deteriorating state of the Hotel, poor room quality, quality work workmanship and how daily management of the activities, cleaning staff behaviors and lack of ownership and accountability from management due to poor vissibility, treatment to customer very bad as a result of defensive attititude.
