A great experience from beginning to end. Service was great - in particular Mark at reception and Xolani at the bar. Rooms appear newly renovated and are modern, spacious and spotless. The view's lovely -180° beach front - only possible drawback is it is right above the small the amusement park so if you want a quiet spot you will... More

Stayed at the hotel on a business trip with colleagues. Check-in was smooth, rooms were pre-allocated but the lady still allowed us to choose alternative rooms. Had dinner on three nights we we there...I would suggest arriving early for the buffet as the food is not replenished later in the evening. Breakfast was great. Rooms are spacious with a shower...

I was very satisfied with my business stay with my Husband at the hotel. We will definitely stay at Garden Court again, it is very centre of everything, walking distance to everything. Maybe they must just put face cloths back into the bathroom.

I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. the staff was friendly and very professional. the hotel room was very clean and comfortable. the buffet was however horrible, with limited options for salads and veges. the food wasn't to my taste at all. breakfast was however superb! I'd definitely book again at this hotel but exclude dinner from my booking.

The overall service is great and suitable for money spent in this hotel. The rooms are clean and the staff very friendly. The staff greet you with a friendly smile. However improvement can be made on the breakfast provided. The food is edible but cooked in bulk and lost its individually test. The visual and the test are slightly a... More

Was booked at this hotel for a 2 day mid-week business meeting. Stayed on the 24th Floor (room 2408) which was close to the lifts. This was a mistake as the noise from the lift shaft echoed into the room. One could hear other residents entering or exiting the lifts. So to summarise do not choose this room if you... More

My 3rd time to GCMP in less than 2 years. Although it is a value for money experience that keeps us coming back there were a lot more issues this time than previous visits. All in all still our current hotel of choice. 1. I can understand the need to save water but could housekeeping at least change the sheets... More

Rooms were pleasant and tastefully decorated. My family enjoyed our stayed and the fact that is on the beach front made it more enjoyable. We will definitely recommend to our friends and family and also go back and stay at the hotel

The hotel can also host teams cause I was lucky to be on the same floor with one of the PSL reserve side team,... More
