The hotel gives you value for money, it is also centrally situated. The rooms although some a bit small is well maintained and clean and comfortable. Breakfast is not always what you expect and sometimes there is not a large variation however overall it is also value for money. I would recommend the hotel for leisure as well as business...

Thank you for upgrading the escalators. The escalators was often overloaded due to some escalators not working. Thank you for giving us the senior rate this time. This is one reason why I will re comment the Garden Court South Beach to family and friends.

The overall service was excellent as expected from Garden Court hotel, but having being located next to a swimming pool was not a pleasant experience (in fact it was nightmare). I would advice patrons to avoid lower floors rooms facing the sea next to a swimming pool especially during weekends. The lifts were at some point very frustrating due maintenance...

The hotel is stay is always pleasant. The staff is always helpful irrespective of the influx that often confronts the hotel. I wish guests can be discouraged from walking on the floor with wet foot directly from swimming.
