We recently stayed at the Garden Court Morningside and booked 2 rooms for 3 adults and 2 small children - both with 2 double beds each. The hotel is situated just off Rivonia Road and is 5 minutes from Sandton City Mall, 15 minutes from Montecasino, 30 minutes from OR Tambo airport and walking distance to McDonalds, a shopping centre and a few garages.
Our check in was smooth and we were given both rooms immediately. My sons even received a special welcome pack for kids and were kept entertained for hours with the goodie bag.
The rooms are adequate for 2 adults and 2 children. The TV is unfortunately quite small and the aircon quite loud, however the rooms have comfortable beds and a nice bathroom with a separate shower, basin and bath. You get body wash, soap, shampoo and a shower cap in your bathroom. Other toiletries like, lotion, shavers etc can be ordered from reception free of charge. The room has a lovely tea/coffee making facility and is replenished daily with tea, coffees, hot chocolate, milk and biscuits. The hotel is not noisy and is quite pleasant if you have a room facing the pool.
The breakfast room is small when the hotel is busy but there is additional seating on the terrace overlooking the pool. We ate outside twice and it was lovely taking in the morning sun. Breakfast is really good for a 3 star hotel. They cater for all tastes and have a selection of cereals, fruit, yogurts, a wonderful hot breakfast selection of lamb/chicken/pork sausages, eggs, veggies as well as fresh juices, a selection of muffins and an amazing automatic coffee machine, offering over 6 different drinks. Their feshly baked croissants are delicious! The staff at breakfast are awesome, friendly and so accommodating. They will even bring you, your drinks or eggs if you ask them to.
The hotel has a pool and a small fitness centre which has the standard excerise machines. The security at the hotel is great, with controlled entry and exit at all times. Room service is open from 17h30 till 22h00 and has a good selection of meals and desserts.
The hotel is great value for money and I will definitely stay here again.
