The hotel is not far from the beach and very close to food stores. Access to the hotel is well controlled - hotel reception is vibrant with the receptionist ready to assist. No porter services thus one has to make sure you are fit to carry your own luggage. We arrived earlier than the check in time i.e. 14:00 therefore...

Garden Court East London is one of the most comfortable hotels we have stayed in. The beds are amazing and so is the white crisp linen....was the best sleep ever. Staff friendly and very helpful with late checkouts etc. Thank you for a wonderful ironman weekend sleepover.

Enjoyed my stay, staff was friendly and helpful. The room was also clean, generally I enjoyed my stay at this establishment. the location of this establishment is ideal, as it is next to the beach and a few minutes drive away from Hemingway Shopping Mall

Value for money, customer friendly, enjoyed staying in the hotel. Need to train more of the in room service personnel as they seem to be not customer friendly when i was in the hotel. Get more variety on the room service menu.

This almost 40 year old Holiday Inn type hotel, although well maintained, is looking and feeling old. Good points include generous size room, comfortable furniture, and lovely sea views. Bad points includes empty used glass left in the corridor, an ironing station that is no more than 2 ironing boards propped up against the wall in the corridor, and no...

The food was delicious and it was great value for money. We had fun at the pool and also made use of the gym. The hotel is pretty central and...

Its very good, not that excellent in its appearance but it is in a good location. Maybe it has something to do with its grading which is a three(3) star. The price for the rooms is very fair and inviting.
