There are hotels and then there is Garden Court, Sandon City. For any hotel, their service and staff disposition makes all the difference.
I have never experienced such a helpful and personable bunch of staff at any hotel, and I have been to many, after years of travel all over the world. The staff at Garden Court, Sandton City were simply exceptional, very friendly and personable especially for a city hotel.
We were well received at reception and check-in was a breeze, the staff was smiling, affable and answering our questions about the hotel and its facilities with ease.
The room we had was clean, immaculate and functional with everything in its place.
We had dinner at the Riffs Bar & Grill. Recognizing that we are Muslims, the staff made sure that the food served were prepared the halal way.
And, much to our surprise, they even had a separate halal live cooking station at the Garden Grill for breakfast the next morning.
Thus, while officially not halal certified, they took the trouble to ensure that, at the very least, their Muslim guests will not end up simply having toast butter and jam!
Well located in the heart of Sandton, Garden Court is within walking distance of the Nelson Mandela Square with a broad selection of restaurants and easy access to the Sandton City Shopping Mall, the Sandton Gautrain station and adjacent to the Sandton Convention Centre.
Thank you for the wonderful experience, rest-assured we will definitely return to Garden Court
