I was originally travelling alone but at the last moment my daughter decided to join me. The hotel kindly upgraded us to a room with two beds which was good of them. However the room was too small for two beds. So no problem we will stick with Garden Court but revert to Marine Parade

When we booked at the hotel we were told that there is halal food for us Apon arrival both the staff and chefs had no idea that they didn't offer any halal meals for the people that don't eat bacon and pork products

Very good value for money hotel on the sea side of Durban's promenade. Excellent breakfast with a lot of activities for young and old to enjoy. Rooms were clean and secure undercover parking for your vehicle. A first time trip to Durban to be repeated in the near future.

Just the most awful hotel much more like a 2 star than a 3 star, They had 2 out of 5 lifts working for a busy weekend with 23 floors. This meant 30 minutes spent each time waiting for the lift. The bed linen is not cotton but polyester...my biggest pet hate. Whatever you do don't use their website for...

There are a lot of amenities around the area. No need to travel a lot. Efficient check ins/outs and liked the friendly welcome. The best thing my family enjoyed was waking up to see the sea and smell the ocean breeze. We appreciated the hospitality with e-vouchers which came handy in making our stay worthwhile. We had fun by using...
