See what our previous UK guests have to say:
“Very comfortable and friendly, We have just spent a week at the South Court hotel. It was during the heatwave and thankfully we upgraded our room to a suite with air-conditioning. The room was large, spotlessly clean and very comfortable for a week’s stay. When I requested an ironing board, an iron and coat hangers they were delivered to the room quickly. The breakfasts were excellent, the Indian restaurant superb and all the staff were extremely friendly. The hotel is perfectly situated with shops and cafes within a few minutes walk. We will definitely stay here again when we next visit our family in Clarina.”
