I just brought a group of 12 people over to South Africa from the USA to go on a safari. We were starting in the Durban area, and needed a place to stay near the airport so that we could get a good night's rest before moving on. I read the reviews on this and many other hotels in the... More

On checking in at the garden court in umhlanga, my experience was horrific. Aaron the Indian gentleman at the checkin desk was rude, not customer savvy, his attitude was disgusting. Did not know how to speak to customers. Breakfast staff in terms of waitrons were terrible, as well as the food. The bed was also absolutely uncomfortable, and being winter... More

It's not very often that I book into a hotel without ever checking the star grading. I was very surprised, after a few days, to learn that this was a 3 star hotel. In my view, it was a 4 star hotel with impeccable service and modern decor throughout the establishment. The hotel is conveniently located close to Gateway shopping... More

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Garden Court Umhlanga for 6 days and we loved the fact that it was only a few minutes walk to Gateway. Will visit again. The food was also great, especially breakfast.

I stayed at the Garden Court Umhlanga for three nights. I had a late check in on my arrival and I was surprised I had the most smelly room in the hotel located on the first floor. Somehow the staff was saying that it is not a smoking room and then the version has changed by claiming that a smoking... More

We stayed 5 nights at the Umhlanga Garden Court. Love the location - easy access to Gateway Mall, the Beach and the Highway. Rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious. Complimentary parking and wifi is a bonus and I love the concept Breakfast on the go. Hotel staff are brilliant. I will definitely be back
