“garden court Umhlanga Ridge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2011

Business trip, last morning there after a 4 night stay - no hot water for shower and no warning or apology.

Restaraunt has buffet some nights - when they nhave this guests are not allowed to order a la carte menu - UNLESS you agree to eat in your bedroom!!

If they can send a la carte menu food to your bedroom - why can this not be served in the diningroom?

So, when the food was sent up - a medium rare steak - dry, tasteless, like pink leather. Veggies seemed like old frozen veggies - just reheated. Big disappointment. Would not like to return there (often go to KZN for business purposes.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2011

We were very impressed with the interior finishes of the hotel and the rooms. The rooms were absolutely stunning. Very trendy look and feel, with mounted flat screen, and views to match. Staff are very friendly. The included breakfast buffet was the cherry on top, but also the only reason why it didn't receive 5/5. Nothing wrong with the food, very good(just not excellent). But everything was fresh and delicious. Plus free cappuccino's!

The parking was included in our reservation, so all and all, everything worked out wonderfully well. Literally a stones throw away from the massive gateway shopping centre. And the beach is about a 4 minute drive away.

Fantastic experience. Thanks, guys.

Room Tip: The rooms on the 4th floor are nice because of the views, all rooms have views, even if you facing a...

We stayed over during the last weekend of July and were impressed. Bathrooms that have a separate shower and bath- unique for Garden Courts in RSA. Except for limited room service ( no breakfast), we enjoyed it.

I regularly stay at the hotel and am always made to feel at home. The rooms are small but comfortable. 4 star quality and service for 3 star prices

This hotel has thought of all of the little things you may need for a quick stop over in Durban, within walking distance to the Gateway Mall. The breakfast choice is wide and never boring. The breakfast staff though could benefit from a more attitude shift towards servicing clients, it is the only snag I can pick out. The wireless connectivity should be completely rehauled so that anyone who has this service with another service provider other than Wireless G can access this service.
