Reviewed 16 January 2017

We stay here often when in Durban, it is convenient to get to Gateway and the restaurants in Chartwell Ave, about R20 in an Uber. Breakfasts are good and whilst I did not eat the Buffet Dinner it did look good and reasonable cost. It is clean and friendly

Also the towels at the hotel and gym was of a VERY poor quality. it was very hard and rough.

Parking is complex. Kids swimming by being supervised by parents makes it very difficult for parents. The hotel has a life guard who need to supervise these kids. The pool is so small that this is possible. Kids must wear the identifier and be allowed to swim for as long as they know how to swim.

It was good value for money and the staff was professional, helpful and very professional. The location was perfect as its close to a shopping mall and various amenities and it links quite well to main routes to various places. I would suggest though that a link is made with various surrounding places for entertainment and transport facilities explored.

It's always a pleasure staying at Garden Court uMhlanga. The kids love to walk from the hotel to Gateway, which is just 2 streets away. The hotel staff is always so friendly and helpful, and the house keeping is great.

Hotel room was very small with no seating area. The bed was comfortable. Furniture and decor very modern. Shower was amazing. What we didn't like was the swimming pool policy. You are not allowed to swim in the pool after 8pm. During the day the pool was overcrowded with kids. I think they should seriously consider allowing only adults to...
