About The Garden Hotel

A garden oasis in the heart of Courtenay Place, The Garden Hotel is an Instagrammer’s dream. Between the delightfully bright presentation of each dish and the to-die-for cocktails, this is one place to instantly add to your list. Book in for brunch and enjoy vibrant plates of loaded toast and poached eggs, or make it evening affair and dine on fried chicken, stacked gourmet burgers, halloumi fries, and cheeseboards. All married perfectly with anything off Garden Hotel’s cocktail list, with plenty of non-alcoholic options too.

A really disappointing Brunch experience. The food & drink very ordinary and coupled with everything else meant that we would not be back and also actively recommend others not to bother. The waiter was rushed and seemed to be annoyed when we mentioned we’d never been there before and needed guidance on the Mother’s Day offering that we’d booked for online. The $30 & $49 offerings were not on the menu and our party was left confused on what we could have. The wait staff were rushed off there feet and you felt you had to compete for their attention. We ordered a couple of non-alcohol drinks which never arrived. Loud club music was suddenly played about midday, 30mins into our Brunch session, to a loudness that made it difficult to hold a conversation. It felt like we were being asked to leave and people were leaving in droves. Front of house seemed to be missing from the whole confusing and unhappy experience. I think most of this confusion was because I booked online expecting a Mother’s Day experience but when we turned up was told that’s not what was booked. Next time I won’t book online but ring through.

We came in for the Bottomless brunch today and it was phenomenal! The eggs Benny was one of the best I’ve had in a long time. The brunch system was easily explained and easy to follow. Will definitely be back!

It was very busy with a couple of large groups there at the same time as us so we were a little concerned about the level of service we would be provided the service was excellent. Our waiter explained everything very well. The drink and food selection from the menu was very good and the idea of 4 drink tokens per person was great. More than enough for the two hour time limit We'll be back!

Had read the reviews prior to booking, there were a lot of bad and a few good, our experience was on point, food came out in record time, 4 drink tokens is more than fair, the meals we great, hi five to the chef, the waiter Norman very professional and organised looking after us and the two other tables we saw him managing. The other tables totalled approx 18 great service and team work. We will be back

As walked in was welcomed but a beautiful atmosphere with how the place was presented but then for the rest of the night was having to shout at my partner so that he could hear me across the table as the mic that was being used for quiz night was so loud was hurting me and my partners ears and making it incredibly hard to hear eacother or anything else. When pointed to a table waited a long time before any server noticed us or came to get a food and drink menu had to ask someone as we'd been seated and ignored so long. But other than that we loved the food but wouldn't mind being able to heard each other talk at dinner without yelling at each other.

Loved it. I’m from a big island family so we love to eat and drink together. The food was good and the drinks were good. You definitely get a bang for your buck with the $49 supper
