Very good location with secure parking. Close to restaurants and shopping mall. Clean and uncluttered. Well decorated and planned. Can be recommended for in transit and business. Not on the beachfront.

Awesome place to stay even though it wasn't overlooking the sea we enjoyed our stay, only hiccup was on Sunday Morning one likes to sleep in, however this didn't happen because of the early birds in the pool shouting and screaming way before 7. But nevertheless we enjoyed the stay. The breakfast staff are really tops. Keep it up

If you are considering a hotel, the Garden Court Umhlanga is great- EXCEPT for the attitude of the reception staff. They are poorly trained and are under the impression in my opinion that they OWN the hotel and services which they provide, are favours to the residents! The rating below regarding SERVICE does not relate to the overall service. Service... More

A most enjoyable weekend spent at your hotel - efficient staff - "on the ball", with smiling faces - (the double bed was a tad small for two)......otherwise everything else was on point....clean, and well appointed.... I will certainly pay another visit in the future....

Check in was a delay although booked in advance ,went in as a couple and was given a family room with 2 single beds ,not what I had expected from Garden Court. Lady at reception advised that it will take 5 minutes to sort out check in ,however she was lost for time .Unprofessional and disappointing .

I stayed at the Garden Court with my husband and 2 children and it exceeded my expectations! I wasn't expecting much for a 3 star hotel but I would even rate this hotel as a 4 star hotel. The rooms and hotel is nice and clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again if... More
