The hotel is spacious and room was very clean. a wonderful view. Breakfast was most enjoyable. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Supper was fine but would be great if the Restaurant can cater for FULLY HALAAL MEALS. Parking area is spacious with good security. Free newspapers was a real bonus

My first time experience in Garden Court-Umhlanga was very good. I enjoyed myself and would like to commend the staff for their welcoming behaviour. The room was neat and when I needed help, they assisted me very well.

The room was neat and clean and the service was exceptional. I had a great stay. There were enough blankets and towels. The staff was friendly, I called housekeeping for an iron, it was there in minutes, There was enough space in the room to move around. I will definitely be back.

Very clean hotel and quite comfortable located in a good safe area. Staff can be a bit more friendly and helpful particularly front desk. The rest of the staff were fairly good. Can't ask more from cleaners. Very thorough

We arrived late and the check-in and parking was rather problematic. Had to hunt for a parking pay in the enclosed area and check-in was ok. However if you decide to check-out early make time for delays. We had a flight to catch and fortunately had made allowances for possible delays. Dinner was very very basic at the buffet and... More
