We settled quickly into our room and although we reported a couple of issues, they were quickly dealt with in a professional manner. The hotel was conveniently located and... More

Customer care was bad. I was booked into a smoking room although I am a non-smoker and was told that unfortunately there are no other non smoking rooms available. But after I was checked in my female colleague was given a non smoking room. The room had a broken locking chain. If the hotel was full and the next day... More

We stayed in the Garden Court South Beach during the Indaba 2016. The service from the hotel was most satisfactory. Staff was friendly and attentive to each guest's needs. The views from the 16th floor was the most beautiful views of the Durban beach front including the view from the breakfast room. I would highly recommend guests booking sea-facing rooms.... More

As always, I was received by friendly staff at the reception and it took me less that 15 minutes to check in. It is actually a home away from home. Everything a person needs is available like iron and ironing board etc. Keep up the good work!!!!

Satisfactory stay, parking need to be covered under accommodation package. Garden Court South Beach is a great favourite with the locals as the hotel faces onto Durban South Beach with only a short walk to the beach. The hotel is in proximity to endless entertainment for the whole family.
