Excellent service and wonderful staff. However, the hotel has aged considerably and needs to be revamped. I recently stayed at the Polokwane Garden Court and I was amazed at the revamp which was awesome. Mthatha Garden court urgently needs a similar revamp.

The Garden Court, Mthatha, clearly strives to provide excellent accommodation. The service by the staff was friendly and helpful. I requested a quiet room so that I could work in the evening and it lived up to my expectations. The room was clean and well maintained. It was a pleasure to stay at this hotel. Many thanks.
