The location of this hotel is absolutely idyllic - wonderful views over the Indian Ocean. The hotel was comfortable. It is handy for Ushaka Marine World. Do not walk around near the hotel either on your own or in a small group - it needs to be a big group! There is a lot of crime (bag-snatching etc.) going on;... More

I was sentenced to a night in this very busy hotel on South Beach in Durban. I was not asked if I wanted a smoking room and clearly the room I got had been used by a smoker. Everything reeked of smoke in the corridor outside the room and inside the room the curtains and bedding smelt horrible. Service in... More

What can I say. The Holiday Inn Garden Court brand is the same all over. You get basic no frills accommodation and food for the masses. If all you need is a room then this place is ok. However, do not walk bare feet anywhere. I am not sure when last the carpets were cleaned. The decor and bathrooms in... More

Very nice location of the hotel on the beach front. Clean rooms and bathroom...We were on the 23rd floor and had a city view...beautiful!!!

Breakfast was good...ample for the amount we paid...my son loved it being so close to the beach!... More
