Garden Court Umhlanga
Ranked #6 of 19 Hotels in Umhlanga Rocks
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We stayed at the Garden court for four days whilst on holiday in Durban. The hotel is closely situated to the Gateway shopping centre. We took inter leading rooms which worked very well. The hotel seems very new and the rooms are very neat. The breakfast are good and lasts upto 10 in the morning. There is a few negatives for this hotel though - there is no porter service to assist with luggage. When I addressed this with the front desk I was told this is a three star hotel and you need to sort your own luggage out. The staff is not overly friendly as well, it is as you are doing them a favor staying there.
Overall, not bad, but there is room for improvement.

The hotel is in an excellent condition, the rooms are amazing and the staff is very friendly and willing to assist! I forgot my jacket in the hotel room and when I called, the hospitality staff confirmed it and kept it safe until I arranged for a courier to collect and deliver it to me. I appreciate their excellent customer service, keep up the good work! Will always consider them as first option when I travel to Umhlanga!!

This hotel is very close to Gateway Shopping centre, a walking distance and all necessary amenities. The rooms are very clean and they have a heated pool. Safe and Secure parking. Manager on duty very hands on and if you can't stay for breakfast, you can request a take-away bag with some food and fruits

Room Tip: They can improve the Gym though, it is too small

My family have stayed at this hotel a few times & find it to be an ideal holiday destination. It's convenient to have the Gateway centre so nearby, lovely place for little kids. A hotel strongly recommended to all.

The staff make this hotel better than the facilities it offers. The rooms are comfortable but the lighting in the bedroom area and the bathroom hotel need improving. Breakfast is very well done with a huge range of choices but the room seems to be a bit of a corridor or an extension of the lobby which in turn doesnt really seem to have enough casual seating.The really odd thing is that the room service offering stops at 10.00pm, so if you are late getting back to the hotel it is difficult to get a bite to eat or a drink as the bar closes pretty early as well. The pool is ok but a bit small, as is the gym which has limited equipment. Overall, my stay was comfortable but the hotel is limited. Thank goodness for fantastic staff.
