Garden Court Eastgate
Ranked #21 of 66 Hotels in Johannesburg
Reviewed 3 January 2012

Very nice hotel. Very convenient on location begin next to eastagte shopping mall and the airport.

The bedrooms are simple with all the garden court quality.

The hotel has great value and I would recommend anybody needing just a bed to consider it.

I was at that hotel earlier this month. It belongs to the Southern Sun Group. Breakfast buffet ain't bad, the room size isn't that big but beds were comfortable. The bar got a sterile glass-concrete-metal athmosphereonth, booked in by my business partner. I found the hair dryer at check out only, hidden in a drawer of the desk! No minibar! Staff was generally friendly but my request for repair of the safe was ignored. So was my request for some "essential toiletries", which I only got by going to the reception and asking for it. Positive is the proximity to the Eastgate Mall over a bridge. Although not well illuminated I felt safe when walking back to hte hotel at night. A f4resh coat of paint for the excternal wall is needed and maybe in the 2012 budget.Another interesting place is the "Oriental Mall" near Beruma Lake where you can buy almost everything and veery cheap from Chinese Traders! As my headline tells: If you want to be near Eastgate and also close to the airport then chose the MERCURE Bedfordview or even the small "Werners Lodge"

Enjoyed 10 night business stay, extensive breakfast buffet, comfortable bed, usually had recent movies on the tv. Short walking distance to the gigantic eastgate mall.

Only complaints were the charge for internet and the lack of street lights at night if you walking back to the hotel from the Eastgate mall.

Recommend the free wifi at the Primi restaurant at the Eastgate mall and be careful at night when returning from the mall.

Very friendly staff, and nice clean rooms. Hotel has a nice feel to it. Beds though, are extremely hard and pillows are 'double sized' so the sleep aspect of the hotel was poor. Breakfast was disappointing by Garden Court standards. Small selection, very slow service at the egg griller who could not make more than one person's eggs at a time. No hot milk to be found, even in the hot milk urn - all ice cold. By the time a waitron managed to source some hot milk, the coffe was cold. Still - overall, good value.

Room Tip: Take your own pillows!

Nice and spacious rooms. Modern. In a family room you have 2 double beds, which is great for the kids. Breakfasts are great!!! Very good location. Right opposite East Gate mall - lot's of shopping, restaurants, cinema etc. Bruma fleamarket right on the other side - nice to browse through shops. A lot of African memorabilia to buy. We stay here quite often, to do shopping over the weekend.
