This is a dive and doesn’t meet the Garden Court standard that I have become accustom to. The towels, bed and linen were the only things that met the standard as well as friendliness of staff at the front desk, the rest were pretty dam miserable. The couch in the bedroom was so dirty that I was too scared to... More

An amazing location, friendly staff, clean rooms, great buffet breakfast, fast and reliable WiFi...unfortunately the outdated, stained furniture in desperate need of replacing ruins an otherwise lovely place.

Excellent position with fantastic views. Rooms are excellent value for money and kept very clean. My only issue would be with the slow check in procedure which seems to happen each time I have stayed here. It seems very manual, one would assume that all info should be updated already from the booking process? Otherwise, as always great stay excellent... More

Stayed there for a weekend with my family and what a wonderful weekend it was. The Staff is very friendly and helpful, not to mention the guys at the parking entrance. Breakfast was on point (awesome), clean and tidy rooms. I shall use Garden Court South beach again.

Views from the rooms are spectacular - the beach front, Bluff and harbor entrance. Parking is not cheap but available and apparently safe - unfortunately no lift to the parking area. Rooms are neat and the service at both reception and dining is good. Due to previous experience at Garden Courts I ordered my wine with the other drinks the... More

We can most certainly address this and improve going forward, and get the basics right, like cooled wine. The ice machines are all in full working order, our apologies... More
