Stayed for 5nights with family just after easter...the check in process was smooth and rooms quite clean. The location is perfect..facing the ever busy south beach and close to ushaka marine world. I was disappointed that the hotel charges an overnight parking fee of ZAR60 or USD6 per night for residents when this could be made complimentary. Secondly the bath rooms are very small and the most irritating thing is that be prepared to be disturbed up by an irritating noise from water taps running in the next room. Breakfasts are simply okay...for other meals there are lot of eating places that are reasonably priced in durban. In short..though Durban has limited things to do for families our stay at the hotel was simply OK for the price.

Stayed: April 2014, travelled with family

We stayed at this hotel on our South Africa tour with Thompson's Africa. We were in room 817 which was large and spacious, with a very good hospitality tray including bottled water. The hotel has a large self service dining room and breakfast was a wonderful vibrant experience with lots of election campaigners staying at the hotel. Only problem was the bath had a broken tap unit, but otherwise very good.

I enjoyed the sea view my room was sea facing and I could see everything during the day and night. The service was excellent and the staff was very helpful to us. They were smiling all the time and what ever we needed we got it

This hotel is still the best to stay in. Staff is very friendly. The rooms are clean. The breakfast buffet is top class. Once again Garden court south beach you have made our stay very welcome and thanks for the great stay we had the Easter weekend.

Room Tip: Rooms on the sides of the building is not as good as the ones more to the middle. but not to close to the lifts.

The location of this hotel is absolutely idyllic - wonderful views over the Indian Ocean. The hotel was comfortable. It is handy for Ushaka Marine World.
Do not walk around near the hotel either on your own or in a small group - it needs to be a big group! There is a lot of crime (bag-snatching etc.) going on; someone said it was drug-related.

Room Tip: Get a room on a high floor with a good view of the sea.
