Good value for money but noisy in the evenings due to motorbike activity behind the hotel. Location is good but no parking available when checking in as tour buses occupy the space in the evenings. Breakfast is good value for money and is included in the rate.

The location for those sea facing rooms was just beyond Spectacular. I will definitely love to visit Garden Court again. Though I arrived before the check-in time, the staff was very helpful and accommodating.

Entering Garden Court South Beach feels like entering your home away from home. There is nothing satisfying than being recognized and refered to by your name, form the reception dest and also at the dinning hall. During breakfast, as I approach the ever-smilling staff, I am greeted by words such as " Welcome back again Mr. Ndaba".

The service was excellent from front desk through duty management to breakfast; I sincerely appreciate it. The rooms were excellent. The hotel is well located for access to places of interest. I like the service rendered by Vanessa and Nelson best, they make me feel at home.

This was an awesome stay for us. Just be prepared to carry your own bags. The porters are not helpful and don't walk the stairs. We were very happy with every other aspect. Breakfast was awesome, in room dinning and house keeping were truly the highlights for us.

Was travelling with a baby and a 12 yr old and had a pram with me. It was an unpleasant experience to discover that I could not get into the hotel from the parking lot with a pram as there was only a staircase to use. When I requested to leave the pram at reception and collect it from there... More
