“Decent Accommodation in Sandton”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

The room was clean enough (but smelly - a non smoking room was not available) and the bed comfortable. Staff was very friendly and the location was great (very close to Sandton City Mall) but not much variety in breakfast.

Room Tip: Always opt for a non-smoking room if available. You won't regret it!

I am a frequent visitor usually on business but have been there with my wife for leisure a few times. The staff are friendly and recognise me by name. They certainly bend over backwards to make me feel comfortable. The rooms are clean and the beds firm and comfortable. Appreciate the availability of feather pillows for my troubled neck. I was there for close to two months in a state of the art refurbished room in my last visit for both business and couples. My wife and I thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed the cuisine at the newly opened restuarant on the complex. Yes it is home far away from home for me. Thanks.- Stanley Mpofu

Room Tip: Rooms facing the swimming pool are cooler and quiter.

Stayed here for two nights for a business trip. Staff were very friendly, bed was very comfortable but otherwise a pretty unremarkable hotel (which was fine for two nights on a business trip). Rooms were clean with no minibar facilities and the usual amount of space to walk around a double bed. Breakfast spread was reasonably good but the coffee was only machine standard (ie. awful). All in all not too bad for the price and I could tick the priority boxes of friendly, welcoming staff and a clean room with a comfortable bed.

When on business in the Sandton area I always make a point of trying to stay in this hotel. It is good value for money and situated away from the bustle of Sandton. However, it is close enough to some great restaurants in the Sandton Square area. A steakhouse is currently been built on the hotel property and should open in 2013. If eating out, get the really friendly reception staff to organise you a reasonably priced taxi, and avoid the really expensive rip off taxis at Sandton Square. The hotel serves great breakfasts and has a really nice pool area to enjoy an evening drink. The room are clean and spacious, however, the bathrooms are starting to show their age with peeling wallpaper. Great all round hotel!

Stayed at this hotel several times now. Bringing the kids was not a problem. The room was big enough for a couple and 2 kids. Good selection for breakfast, though variety wasn't changing much when we stayed for 3 nights, though fresh daily. The staff were friendly and helpful. Kids enjoyed the pool and the gym was great as well. Wifi available and affordable. Not much activities during the holidays though. Worth the rate!

The Morningside Garden Court is situated very close to the Hub of Sandton, close to MonteCasino and other shopping areas, but just far enough to be peaceful and quiet. Love the location, it has a beautiful pool as well as a gym for those that want to work out before a super breakfast.
