“Decent,comfortable hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here for 1 night. The rooms are ok but the tv is too small for a garden court hotel. Bathroom is spacious with seperate shower and bath. The best part of the hotel is the swimming pool and the gardens surrounding the it. Breakfast room can get full easily as it is not very not. Breakfast was fantastic. Would easily stay here again.

Stayed here for 2 nights and found the hotel staff to be one of the friendliest in a long time. Rooms could be improved as they are looking a bit run down.

I stayed at this hotel for three days while on business around Sandton. For Its price its quite a decent place, the staff were very friendly and helpfull.
The only downside being nothing much happens in the evening, dint mind this because always had to plan for the next days meetings anyway.
Would definately stay here again

Dear Madam, I stayed at the Morningside Garden court and also experianced the water problem . I aslo was inconvienced by the lack of water BUT to blame the hotel for this is inconcievable. Management did their utmost to ensure that there was ample water for toilet flushing . They also supplied you with bottled water for Tea and Coffee. How did you expect they to supply enought water for bathing??????? I have alway had a wonderful stay at this hotel and find the Managment and staff very accomodating.

Room 220 is situated next to a house keeping room which was operational until early morning hours. Staff came in and out of the noisy door ALL night. I eventually had to call front desk and ask them to tell the service staff to refrain from using the room whilst guests are trying to get some much needed rest. I think it is appalling that there is a room RIGHT next to housekeeping! At R1000 a night I would expect a good nights rest.

Even more shocking - front desk checked another guest into the same room as me and he accessed my room while I was sleeping at 10h30. Following the incident, I was called at least twice in the next 2 hours to apologise.

I woke up to no water to shower or have coffee / tea.

I am not the kind of person who sends food back or service but in this case, I think the hotel properly tarnishes the Garden Court brand. The company I work for has booked rooms for their staff on numerous occasions but after what happened this week we will not be staying at Morningside anymore.

Room Tip: Ask for garden view rooms far from 220

As long as you don't stay in room 120, it is not a bad hotel however unsure if I will go back. Room 120 is next to hoousekeeping so at night you could hear the washing machines, I moved to another room for the rest of my stay which was ok, but it was very easy to hear people outside talking by the pool or in the corridor. Wireless internet was down for one day which was a bit annoying, but rooms were ok, the bed was comfy and at breakfast the was a good variety of food. Within the complex is a french restaurant which was very good.
