For the sheer scale that the Garden Court Marine Parade deals with it is astonishing that they can maintain the quality of service and enthusiasm throughout. The meals were excellent. The staff were surprisingly engaged and always willing to go the extra mile. I was impressed.

The breakfast its on another level. It is really closer to the beach and you can walk to the shops.The view of the beach from our room was perfect. It was my first time travel to Durban and it was wonderful.

In general, the room was excellent. Being in Durban, however, one of the most important features in the rooms is the availability of air conditioning. The air conditioning in my room did not work, and it was extremely uncomfortable. Should that problem be removed, I will definitely recommend this hotel to anybody.

The service was excellent. Location is perfect. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Parking is convenient at a small price. More Irons and boards could be added to hotel inventory because sometimes it took a while to receive them and is problematic especially if you have a morning function to attend.

The stay was enjoyable relaxing and excellent for unwinding. The weather this weekend in Durban was a negative and this hampered carrying out the planned itinerary. Albeit on the last day the weather did improve. The facility need to have more in house entertainment which would compensate for bad weather and this would include the pool being opened for extended...

Great hotel location, poor front service desk experience. Clean rooms with great sea view. Value for money is excellent. Would recommend for a holiday during South African winter or autumn for people outside of KZN

Just remember to keep tabs with other Garden Courts, so you'll be able remind your guests with regards to different offering and facilities. Since the establishment is in front of the beach, it will be great if there could be a sign in the dining area that indicates that shoes are compulsory.
