My stay at the hotel was Not a WOW experience- still not bad though, room was nice and big, bad part was that the windows could not open. Dinner was nice, breakfast was average, had the stalest bread sticks I ever encountered. Overall, was ok for the one night stay.

No Early check in, Breakfast is boring, its been the same for years. I have visit this place for many years. The hotel parking smells of urine. For family stays I will not recommend this hotel to any one.

This hotel is always our choice when visiting Durban. The rooms are cozy, comfortable and clean. Room service is always excellent. Beds are really comfortable and provide a good nights rest. Breakfast is amazing. Especially love their omelettes and croissants. Feel like taking some of those chefs home when it's time to leave. The variety is superb and service always... More

The services from the staff was very good accept the issue mentioned above, the room setting was perfect and the hotel location is perfect. I would like the hotel to emphasis to its staff that he/ she must deal with that individual till to the end not delegating someone without informing him/her with full details as per the guest request.

The stay at Garden court South beach was excellent and a good place I would always wish to go to whenever I want to go out to relax. the service excels in almost everything. I would definitely recommend even my friends as it also affordable in rates and best service ever from checking in until one checks out.

Great value for money. Clean and comfortable rooms for a family of 4, safe and conveniently located on marine parade for a family beach holiday. Restaurant staff courteous and very helpful. Free Wifi always useful. Would certainly stay there again on a family trip.

it was an okay environment though the room looked very old. However the staff, the dining and maintenance, they were excellent. I would go there again but they have to revamp their rooms and put a plug next to the bed
