Excellent service from check-in, friendly staff, breakfast was good. The hotel is just a walking distance to the beach and affordable too. Great value for money and i can confirm that my next stay, will be at Garden Court.

I recently stayed at the Garden Court South Beach for 4 nights whilst on a work trip. The hotel is situated right opposite the beach and my room had lovely views of the sea, where I frequently spotted dolphins swimming up and down the coast.

Being away from your own space and your loved ones is not always an easy thing. It will be beneficial if the hotel can consider opening a gymnastic space for guests who are health conscious and have interest in exercising

I was not happy with the parking arrangements where you have to check in first and the basement parking is not user friendly for a person that is using wheelchair. If you have many bags u need to take the staircase with those bags.

My advice to all leisure and family travelers - avoid, especially during holidays and peak times. My first-time experience in Durban was completely ruined. The location makes it absolutely unpleasant during peak times, which was the case during our trip - the weekend of 16 December 2016. The hotel had so many residents that we had to wait in a...

The check in & out was very quick. The location of the hotel is awesome, the beach view and a wide window.The room was so perfect filled with all necessary things that i needed. The wifi was so fast and the data was enough to use for a day.
