Garden Court South Beach
Ranked #4 of 43 Hotels in Durban
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 29, 2014

The hotel was really average. It was just an ok way for back packers and did an average job in terms of cleaning service. For me it's an average hotel. Good enough for sleeping and experiencing Durban.

Always good experience.
But air conditioning WIFI and bathroom facilities can be improved to enhance quality and better value for money.
The trolley service can be improved. Paying for that service as it is highlighted looks cheap but it could be for free and allow guest to give tips to the porter or bell boy.

Stayed for 5nights with family just after easter...the check in process was smooth and rooms quite clean. The location is perfect..facing the ever busy south beach and close to ushaka marine world. I was disappointed that the hotel charges an overnight parking fee of ZAR60 or USD6 per night for residents when this could be made complimentary. Secondly the bath rooms are very small and the most irritating thing is that be prepared to be disturbed up by an irritating noise from water taps running in the next room. Breakfasts are simply okay...for other meals there are lot of eating places that are reasonably priced in durban. In short..though Durban has limited things to do for families our stay at the hotel was simply OK for the price.

We stayed at this hotel on our South Africa tour with Thompson's Africa. We were in room 817 which was large and spacious, with a very good hospitality tray including bottled water. The hotel has a large self service dining room and breakfast was a wonderful vibrant experience with lots of election campaigners staying at the hotel. Only problem was the bath had a broken tap unit, but otherwise very good.
