The rooms are decent, clean and specious. Great views are offered towards the ocean. Decent breakfast with your choice of eggs served. The hotel seems a bit runs-down and they do not offer a restaurant with a choice from the menu. Staff seems a bit untrained and slow. All in all they deliver as expected from a three star hotel.

Overall a good stay. The breakfast was good. Value for money stay. The December 2016 rates were high though which I understand given the high occupancy rates at the hotel. I would come again to the hotel.

Would like to recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to durban south beach. Having to wait for 30min -45 min for breakfast felt like was replaying my hostel life again. Besides that everything was excellent.

My family holiday at the Garden Court South Beach was to my satisfaction...Good service...Breakfast was good ...but a bit more variety ...menu changes each day would be good The play room for the children and the well trained child minders was very impressive

Great atmosphere with helpful staff,we had an awesome stay in the hotel with awesome breakfast. Will most definitely come back next time as the hotel is just a meter away from the beach and other attractions like Ushaka marine,the Ice ring,Moses Mabhida Stadium. A very lovely atmosphere around the hotel.

I enjoyed being at the hotel after many years. Please clean the hotel outside, it looks a bit dirty and easily seen coz it's whitish in colour. It was also a busy holiday period and would have liked to see all the check in points manned
