“Airport Garden Court Hotel JHB Simply the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

I totaly loved my first week. After returning from work in the afternoon the doorman was waiting with a smile. The food was out of this world and the staff in the diningroom were sweet and so helpfull. Our company normaly booked us in the City Lodge but I will definately not stay there again. Next week I will be returning for my second week and I cant wait to book in again. I recomended Garden Court to my company for al future business related traveling for all employees. Thanks for being my home away from home.

My wife and I stayed @ this hotel for 7days. We had a very enjoyable stay and found the staff more then helpful, especially the maintainence electrican who came to our aid when we had a problem with one of our travel appliances.
The food in the restaurant for breakfast was excellent and the staff were friendly and helpful at all times. We also found the shuttle to the airport very convenient.
We would definitely stay there again

This hotel was convenient for us as we had an early morning domestic departure. We arrived late afternoon form USA flight and were able to find the hotel shuttle bus with the help of the porters. The room was average. The bed was comfortable. The door handle on the bathroom sliding door was broken and hanging loose. The tile in the tub area was moldy but the shower worked well. We had dinner in the pub and it was enjoyable. The shuttle was available at 5:30 am to take us to the airport. Fair quality and service for the price.

Once again this hotel has surpassed my expectations! The check-in was effortless, the room was clean, fresh smelling, and spacious! The service in this hotel is exceptional and the food is excellent! The staff are courteous, helpful and go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that the guests are comfortable and happy!

Hotel is near the airport and is a reasonable place to stay,although nothing spectacular. We ate in the restraint which was just about ok.

Just spent 5 nights at this hotel as my preferred hotel was fully-booked. The location of the Garden Court was very convenient for the airport as well as for my work in Johannesburg. If you have your own vehicle, expect to pay R30 per day for parking. The other two hotels (both 4-star) I have stayed at in Johannesburg don't levy this charge, so I was a bit surprised.
Rooms are comfortable and clean, with tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast is typical of most South African hotels - a generous buffet with lots of variety. The Irish pub/restaurant in the hotel also offers pretty good food if you're having lunch or dinner in the hotel,though service is a tad slow. Staff are very friendly and helpful, which always helps 'make' or 'break' a hotel in my opinion.
Overall, a pleasant and efficient hotel.

Stayed at this hotel due to its proximity to the airport. The hotel has been revamped but the A/C's are Very very old... we didnt sleep the first night due to the noise and stuffyness of the room.
We were moved promptly ....
The staff get full marks for service.There are so many little things that would 'MAKE" the hotel and also the staff's jobs so much easier. e.g. the parking charges for guests/ the bellhops don't have wedges to put under the doors when moving luggage, no early morning coffee/tea /muffin/fruit stations for guests checking out for early flights, no late night check out (I was forced to check out in the morning) , no free internet. The food is is average and could be great if the staff werent stuck in old habits.Wonderful garden and pool area under utilized.
The staff made our stay special..... thank you to everyone from the driver/front desk/ pub/ restaurant/bell hop.... you are the greatest asset to your hotel and I hope they know this.
The free shuttle to and from the airport is a major plus ....only 10 minutes away.
