I travel a lot for business and always stay at the Garden Court's in the Eastern Cape. I always enjoy my stays with them. I just wish they had small fridges in the rooms for me to keep my milk, etc.as I normally stay for a full week at a time. However my stays are always pleasant.

I would urge all to visit this hotel and see for themselves. The staff are friendly and the checking formalities are excellent. The parking is good and secure. The food and the staff in the restaurant were good.

The hotel is situated at the bank of the sea.Friendly staff ensures you have a homely stay. I was able to conduct my business using the excellent WI-FI connection. The dinner and breakfast are served in a top notch restaurant.

I liked everything about this hotel except for the height of the shower and the lack of a refrigerator. Gorgeous view good food smart rooms. Eggs were bit hard though. As if the chicken laid it in a panic. Will visit again for pleasure someday

Stayed at the Garden Court over the 70.3 IronMan weekend. Hotel was full of participants and held the registration. Don't visit if you not part of the event, luckily I was. Food was great, only had breakfast, but was ample, and to have the breakfast ready at 4am on race day is well done to the team for the effort!!...
