The total stay at the hotel was rewarding and worth being repeated. Being a health fanatic, the proximity of Virgin Active for workout, shopping facilities for dining and an easy way out to the freeway was a bonus. Thank You Garden Court.

every time I book I look forward to staying at the Garden Court Umlhanga, it is by far the better Garden Court in the Durban area, it is clean, the look is fresh, not dated, the staff are always friendly and eager to help.

We had a wonderful 2 night stay and one of the nicer Garden Courts I've stayed at. Not so great to arrive to a sign on the porter trolleys saying R15 for a porter or self service help yourself though...never seen that before and porters gets tipped anyway so not sure what that's about but besides that, stay was great....

The hotel is in a good setting. Well organised. The food is good. The people are friendly and helpful. But although the decor is neat and clean, it lacks a personal touch. Everything seems to give a "square" effect. There is no personal touch. The hotel has everything one needs. The rooms have everything one needs. I was glad that... More

Decent, clean room. Reasonable rates. Lovely heated pool. Breakfasts amazing. Dinner buffet good, but a bit expensive. Bar also pricey. But a great base for a family trip - good for beach, good for M4 to Durban and N2 to everywhere else. Handy for Gateway shopping centre (lots of restaurants) - safe to walk.
