I stayed there mid-July for the second time this year. The location is very convenient to the airport and shopping at Eastgate. The staff are very friendly and efficient and all the facilities work. My only problem was with the dining room. Buffet dinner offering commercial sausages (bangers), stew, dried out chicken fillets with pumpkin, cauliflower, pap, rice doesn't equate to R165 for me! Breakfast is supposed to commence at 06h30 and I was there as I had to catch an early flight. The food was only all put out by 06h45 and a chef didn't appear to cook eggs until 06h50! I believe the dining room needs some serious attention.

I have stay in this hotel several times since it was Holiday Inn. The hotel is renovated now with a more modern look. The service is good and the rooms are large and comfortable with all the facilities we need. The food is nice and the staff is friendly. What I like most is its location, just 5 minutes from the Eastgate Mall and another minutes from the airport.

Great business hotel, only 15 min from OR Tambo.

Across the road from Eastgate shopping mall. This is a huge shopping centre.

The rooms are simple and you need to pay extra for wifi.
The price is not cheap so if you are expecting something very special rather choose another hotel.
South Africa needs to catch up with the rest of the world when it comes to free wifi.

The breakfast is also simple but included in room price.

The staff are very friendly!

Room Tip: All rooms are the same size

Stayed for 2 Nights at this Hotel and i must say that the staff is very courteous and helpful. Food is excellent ( except for veg choices which is very limited).
The Room is neat and tidy and very comfortable.
The Mall is just across the street and is walking distance from the hotel. Transfers can be organized for reasonable tarifs, to Sandton or even to the airport.
All in all, it has been a very good experience and i would recommend it to fellow travellers.
As a closing line, i would say that it was quite safe to walk around the Hotel and mall even after 6 PM, but then, might just be a question of luck!

I stayed at Garden court with my wife and 2 little kids during a family vacation to South Africa.We stayed a night but it was worth it-maybe because it was a weekend. (i understand the hotel is busier on week days).Close to Eastgate mall,arguably the biggest in South Africa.The hotel is in a great location.The rooms are tidy and all facilities are available and functional,bathroom is ok,courteous staff.The hotel is just fine.

As an overnight stop in Jo'burg, the Garden Court Eastgate is easily found and has secure parking, good customers service, comfortable if a little non-descript rooms and decent food.
The staff at reception were helpful, the room was equipped with everything we needed and I'd say this was a good 3 star hotel to stay at whilst in Jo'burg.
