Although the service @ reception was super the systems where very slow. The Garden Court is perfectly situated and definitely family friendly. We were with our Rugby team who were also booked at the hotel and enjoyed I every minute of it.

I will never ever return to Durban. I felt as if I was about to be mugged every moment I spent outside. I was constantly hoarded by... More
