Garden Court SB staff taught me, it's got nothing to do with how many stars an establishment has, but EVERYTHING to do about the service they render. I've been here 4 hours and already blown away by the front desk staff! I'm gonna tell EVERYONE about the warm reception we got!

The Hotel was comfortable and clean, nice dinning area sea facing and staff had a positive attitude.. I would book in the hotel anytime, Cleaners were also professional and friendly and I truly felt valued and my needs taken care of. Location is best, I could safely take my morning walk whilst enjoying the sea breeze.

The staff go out of their way to please you in this busy hotel. We arrived very early in the morning (07:30) and were plied with tea and coffee until our room was ready. Room very clean and comfortable, overlooking beach with a panoramic seaview. Breakfast sumptuous. Checked out in the morning and collected our luggage in the late afternoon.

I have never met a better service like this before and my family is also happy. I would also recommend my friend and my extended family to use your hotel. Starting from the reception until the rooms yes.

A family hotel on the sea front. I loved the cleanliness, and the efficiency and friendliness of the staff. Wifi works perfectly. BUT we had a room on the sea front on the 22nd floor and even up there the noise from the promenade and road was very loud. Breakfast was plentiful and a good choice. Good hotel for families...
