The service was outstanding just one incident when a waiter said there is no decaf coffee , but overall it was great and if they can just try to have more variety like your chicken sausages so that ppl who don't eat pork are covered as well

The staff is friendly, Durban is beautiful and best of all you are right at the beach if you stay here.

The food at the restaurant is fine, not gourmet but not bad at all either. Good selection for the breakfast though not a full continental breakfast.

The rooms could use an upgrade but there is nothing that will cause inconvenience. You have a kettle and a selection of tees&coffee. There is also a small shop at the bottom floor for buying drinks and snacks.

If requested, the staff will bring an ironing board to your room which is quite important for business travellers like me.

Overall a good stay in Durban thanks to this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean. You will wake up to a beautiful view. I had 1101.

Stayed for a weekend. Rooms and bathrooms are dated. This hotel is not too shabby, but I think this is going to be a stunning hotel once the refurbish is done.

Wifi brilliant - 1 gig per night if you are a frequent guest.

The hotel should consider investing in vending machines as no bottled water is available after the bar closes.

Hotel leases the parking space and you are charged for parking, other Tsogo Sun hotels gives you complimentary parking :-(

Breakfast - there should be more staff at the egg station over weekends and peak times. Queues are unnecessary.

Overall not a bad stay.

The hotel offered exceptional service and value for money. The staff members were friendly and helpful at all times- from the reception to the cleaning staff. I requested a a complimentary shaving kit and this was delivered promptly. I am a regular here and I was not disappointed!

Of all the hotels along the Marine Parade (don't know the new name) - The Garden Court Marine Parade is one of the best, especially if one is staying in those top floors. The sea views are just exotic and priceless. It will always be my first choice hotel when coming to Durban, and yes I will always recommend it to anyone.
