Garden Court Sandton City

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 May 2014

The hotel is a great place to stay at specially if you are in South Africa business and pleasure since the gautrain station is walkable distance also Sandton centre and Mandela square are both very near excellent for my meeting places for business and also for shopping. I believe it's also priced right for its grade..I would recommend that the hotel should start putting at least a bottle of water in the rooms.

The hotel is in a perfect location right next to Nelson Mandela square. The staff is very good and extremely service minded. The service is clearly better than in other hotels of the same class. The breakfast is very good. On the negative side: the rooms are good, but very small. The hotel is a bit dated and could use some modernization. The gym is tiny with just a few machines and weights, even if it is functional. The outdoor pool is nice, but small.
I encountered numerous little grey bugs/beetles in my room the first evening I was there...... After complaining the following morning the room was cleaned/sprayed and they were gone. The staff handled my complaint very well and quickly.

From the time of collection at ORTambo airport to my checkout I experienced professional and friendly service of an exceptional standard. I felt like an honoured guest where each hotel staff member was genuinely interested in my wellbeing. The smiles were always there and always sincere. The room was excellent, what a comfy bed, breakfast great (you get wonderful service from the lady who shows you your table). My rating is high but deservedly so. The hotel is perfectly located, so close to Sandton City mall and even the Gautrain if you want to travel further

I thought this was one of the best stays I have had in Johannesburg. Recently stayed with my family on a weekend break. The staff are clearly committed to excellent service. I was particularly impressed by the breakfast service. The Chef responsible for making eggs was inundated with the business and she kept her calm, was extremely orderly and so helpful. You have a real asset there. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. I wish all South African hotels were so good.

I am a frequent guest at this hotel. I spent 13 days there on March 2014. Localization is near everything I need. Nelson Mandela Square, Sandton City Mall, Sandton Convention Center, Sandton Mediclinic, Gautrain Station, etc. It’s like you have the world in your hands.
Rooms are small but comfortable and clean, with big plasma screens, free wireless internet, in room amenities, etc. Employees are gentle, educated and friendly. Breakfast time is like a party. There is always a great variety of fresh fruits, salads, breads, teas, cereals, meats, etc. There's always someone to help you with a smile.
I did not like the Riffs Bar and Grill. It is not comfortable. The atmosphere is heavy and dark, needing some restyling. The service at The Riffs Bar and Grill is poor and slow.

The Garden Court Sandton City is very recommendable.

Room Tip: Top Floor, 9th. A great view Ask a good room at the reception . They are so kind and helpfull.

The location cannot be praised enough, right next to nelson Mandela square, 100m from the train from the airport, and suburb felt very safe., staff were extremely helpful and curious (especial the concierge) food was delightful. I did experience some complications with their laundry service. I dropped of some laundry for their 24 hour laundry service, and the staff did not tell me that it would actually take 48 hours due to public holiday by which time I would have already left Johannesburg. After many phone calls and 2 hours ( at 10pm) my laundry was eventually retrieved and returned to me (unwashed)
