My wife and I spent two nights here (for the Amashova cycle race). Used to be the Malibu Hotel. Clean and tidy sea-facing room, although the aircon did not work. Good service and breakfasts. Reasonable room rates.

This hotel really brings down the name and reputation of the Garden Court hotels. as a frequent traveller I will not stay or recommend this hotel. the impression I got was that of attracting the lower income ethnic groups.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for one night on the 10th October (room 803). At the check -in I was told we had a city facing room whereas we booked for the sea facing and paid a lot of money for it. However the person at the front desk gave us a sea facing since he said... More
