To me everything in Garden court is perfect. The rooms are great with comfortable beds, showers always clean with their towels. The food is good, I would just applaud to you guys to keep up the good work. Staff members are very welcoming and their service improves each and every day. Even when you call them, they always assist as much as they can so to Garden Court is always the best hotel that I even recommend to my friends and colleagues.

My family and I recently went to breakfast at Garden Court Mthatha, where I have not been since their recent upgrade. The renovation has been worth the wait, the food was stunning, with variety for everyone, I was very impressed that they actually catered for vegetarian in my family by having 10 plus items for them to choose from. Due to inclement weather on that day we could not sit outside in the wonderfully maintained garden, or sit by the pool, on our next visit maybe the weather gods will be nice to us. All in all, we had a wonderful time.

The rooms are a comfortable size. The bed and linen was to my expectations. I loved the bathroom. I also loved that there is a fridge in the room. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The only thing I did not like is that they do not offer the discount to reward members when ordering room service.
