The establishment is up to expectation price wise but if the front line staff can be sent to marketing and customer care they will make staying at the hotel very memorable indeed. on check in my guest frequent number was not uploaded which ended me being allocated a back facing room whilst a frequent guest, even if I alerted this...

The stay at GCU was excellent. Good hospitality from employees in the dining area as well as the reception. The parking area is very small especially if you are driving double cab, otherwise the security was okay.

We were warmly welcomed to the hotel with excellent service from the Porters. The check in was also excellent and done with a smile. It is only the breakfast that I feel needs to looked at in terms of changing it now and again

Recently stayed at the Garden Court for a 5 day meeting. The hotel rooms are quaint and in a very business oriented section of Umhlanga just steps from the Gateway mall.

Clean rooms with good bath and shower easy walk to the mall. Sea view a bit disappointment as hotel is quite a distance from the beach and transport no longer available between hotel and Beverly Hills which meant I couldn't go down to dinner without paying for a taxi trip. Overall good service and a great breakfast.
