“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

the rooms are good but I was not certified with the bathroom especially the shower located in the bath tabs. ill suggest that in the near future you design rooms without bath tabs, because you bath tabs are small for a huge person like me to take a bath especially using the shower within the bath tab.

It is a place to stay in! The service was excellent. Some improvements to the building will make the hotel more attractive and improve their revenue and occupancy. It really value for money in my opinion.

I was very impressed with this hotel, the efficiency, helpfulness and friendliness of staff. The room was very clean. A big improvement from my last stay there. Very happy customer indeed and I would recommend this hotel. The price is reasonable for what you get.

improvement on welcoming of guests is needed and speed in checking in or out otherwise the food is good. I feel the rooms the entrance foyer and the dining area may require renovations to modernize them.

My family normally go to Garden court for dinner since we are living in Mthatha. The food is divine and appetizing. Staff friendliness is best, especially the kitchen staff are doing excellent work. They go an extra mile when we were there to have dinner and unfortunately for the hotel there was a water disaster flooding in the dining hall. The cause was the outburst of municipal pipes in their nearby construction site. The staff and the hotel management tried their best to manage the situation under those difficulties. There also a group of tourists from Australia who were made feel at home and informed friendly about the disaster.

Thank you Mthatha Garden court team for being the leading example in showing hospitality qualities and I hope the stress, trauma and frustration that is caused by that situation is nothing compared to the joy of serving your customers with best of service. I recommend you to anyone who wanted to try your food

Hotel is in a good location as you come in on N2 (beware of speed bumps) and across from WSU. Used to be a hoiday Inn so large room sizes but furniture layout and style is dated. Security offerred to carry bags, reception (Sandisiwe) was friendly and went out of her way to process check in by phoning travel agent since our accommodation voucher failed to be sent to the hotel.
