Reviewed 7 December 2016

It was a very nice and relaxing holiday. Friendly staff and very efficient. Situated very near the Gateway Mall. I would recommend this Hotel to my family and friends. Will definitely visit again. Breakfast was terrific. My daughter was sick, the waiter went out of his way to make something special to make her better.

The hotel was serving buffet and i just wanted a good curry. I ordered from the a la carte menu, the curry never arrived until i gave up an went back to the room. What I noted with interest, there was no effort after that to make any amends for this, not even a simple apology.

Awesome place to stay even though it wasn't overlooking the sea we enjoyed our stay, only hiccup was on Sunday Morning one likes to sleep in, however this didn't happen because of the early birds in the pool shouting and screaming way before 7. But nevertheless we enjoyed the stay. The breakfast staff are really tops. Keep it up

If you are considering a hotel, the Garden Court Umhlanga is great- EXCEPT for the attitude of the reception staff. They are poorly trained and are under the impression in my opinion that they OWN the hotel and services which they provide, are favours to the residents! The rating below regarding SERVICE does not relate to the overall service. Service...
