Garden Court Umhlanga

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 1, 2013

The Garden Court Umhlanga might be isolated and lacking scenery, but the facilities and service are always superb. It is always my first choice when I am holidaying in KZN, ever since they opened their doors a few years ago. Keep up the wonderful service.

Visited with my kids for a few days. We had a very pleasant experience from arrival to departure. The gym was clean as well. Staff friendly and helpful. Location is well situated. Breakfast was really great. The staff made us feel comfortable and the chef's were prepared to specialize our breakfast orders. We will definitely visit this hotel again. The room service meals were fresh, of a high quality and delivered promptly. This hotel was an excellent choice for us.

I inadvertantly left my cell phone charger in the room when I checked out. On realising this, I called Housekeeping who had no knowledge of such a charger being found by the 'chamber maid'. The moral of the story - the cleaning staff cannot be relied upon to hand in your lost items. What a pity!

Room Tip: Choose a room which is cleaned by an honest chamber maid!

If you're doing business in the Gateway area, this property is perfect. It's about 1k from the mall and in the center of many office parks. It has a modern feel to it and is perfect for the business traveler. The rooms are rather small (think European size) I would guess around 150sq. ft (13 sq meter). The rooms are clean and modern with a separate shower from tub. I hate you have to pay so much for internet, but that's South Africa. Parking is free and secure under hotel.

we stayed here with our 2 kids on a recent trip to Durban. What a great hotel with friendly staff! Breakfast was superb with a nice variety even for vegetarians. The heated pool was a welcomed relief especially after spending the day at the beach. The rooms were neat and clean with a great shower and a bath. Very convenient to be able to walk to Gateway shopping center and is just a 10 min drive to Umhlanga too. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 4 days with all my best friends and our kids. The place is excellent in all respect. The kids do not understand why we had to go back home,LOL. a day does not end without my daughter talking about the hotel, I think the pool is a winner with them. I also think if u can introduce more kiddies activities and some entertainment for New Year's Eve will make the place 100% perfect.

We r certainly returning even though they feel summer holidays are a long time from now.

Mbuyi.

I have reviewed this hotel in the past but this time I stayed here with my husband and son. The staff where friendly and helpful.
I was worried about the noise factor as one of the AFCON soccer teams was staying at the hotel but we did not hear a sound from them.
The pool area is fantastic. My son loved the kids pool and sandpit which was well stocked with toys. As a business hotel this place really goes out of it's way to be family friendly.
I have stayed in a number of Garden Court hotels but this one really is a cut above the rest. Rooms are modern and comfortable.
Breakfast is excellent and the variety of foods staggering. You could have three different meals with what they provide.
This hotel really is by far the best place to stay in the Umhlangha area.
