Stayed at Garden Court Eastgate recently, for the 3rd time in the past 5 years. On my first stay the hotel was a 'Holiday Inn Garden Court', and on the last two it has been the Garden Court, without the Holiday Inn affiliation. On the most recent stay the staff were considerably more helpful and attentive than on either of the previous visits, a welcome improvement.
This is a 4-storey modern business hotel, comfortable but nothing special. A free buffet breakfast is now included in the rate, where it previously was not. The location a convenient walk to the Eastgate shopping centre, and is across the road from the Bruma flea market. The hotel is also only about a 10 minute drive from the airport, and is handy to the N3 and N12 freeways.
Wireless broadband is available, at a cost, and if you need an iron you must ask the concierge to bring it and the ironing board to the room. There is a bar and restaurant, I had breakfast at the hotel but did not eat there in the evening as there are many good restaurants nearby in Bedfordview.
It is a good functional 3 star hotel for a short stay, I would recommend it more to business travellers than those on vacation.
