Having stayed in the past I decided to revisit this hotel and was very pleased I did so. It's location at the lovely Granger Bay is ideal to access the nearby waterfront and the promenades along the seafront. On the one side you have a small yacht marina, and on the other the ocean with great views out towards Robben Island in the distance. It only has four stories so try for a higher room to maximize the sea view. The room are pleasantly furnished. The breakfast buffet was very good and it was... Read more

This was a lovely hotel, situated perfectly on the waterfront in Cape Town, well staffed with polite friendly employees, clean, with a great restaurant and best of all, outside dining and lounging just a few feet from the crashing waves and jumping dolphins of the Atlantic Ocean. I never felt like I was getting gouged, everything that was offered was delivered at a very fair price. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would easily return and/or recommend The Radisson in Cape Town to others

The hotel room is clean and big and the area is great and staff seems nice. We discovered the day we left the hotel that money was stolen out of our bag. You can say it is your fault if you do not keep it in a safe but for radisson with their world wide quality you would not except that the staff is snuffing around in your bag and opens all small bags that are hidden in your bag. We made a complaint and they ask the staff but of course nobody confessed so without an apology we left South Africa.... Read more

The hotel is located slightly off the centre part of town but close to the V&A waterfront. There isn't a great deal immediately around the hotel to do. There is sea wall that you can walk out on to get good views of Table Mountain and the waterfront. The sea and view I guess differentiates it from hotels in the city centre. The V&A waterfront is walkable, but I preferred to use the hourly shuttle service- very handy when carrying back shopping. Make sure you tell your taxi driver you are sta... Read more

Handy to most things in Cape Town, with a free shuttle bus to shopping mall with heaps of restaurants, and any type of shop you desire.

We stayed at the Radisson Blu twice on the same trip to South Africa. The views (and proximity to the sea from the sea view rooms (we were in a business class room) cannot be beaten and I would stay here again just for this. Service and standards need improvement. Staff is very helpful and well meaning but keep overlooking small things (eg. 2 bath towels though room was booked for three ), which if addressed would make my rating excellent and this hotel really stand out.

The helpfulness of the staff was the most appreciated aspect of my stay at this Radisson Blu. The view was spectacular, and the food was very good both at dinner and at breakfast. One could choose to eat outdoors or indoors. The room was clean and had everything we needed - plus. The Concierge staff were extremely helpful, providing maps to various points of interest and even running out to our car to make sure we had the most useful map with us.

Stayed twice during our recent SA trip, totalling six nights. Stunning ocean views from our Business suite, which was well appointed, spacious, comfortable and luxurious. Hotel staff were all exceptional, I wish I could remember more names but special mention should go to the concierge Christiana, who went above and beyond when my wife required medical attention. Hotel provides a personal touch, not always present with large chain hotels. Breakfast was excellent, a wide range of options all bea... Read more

Stayed here in July as part of our travel package to Africa. The staff were very helpful and the rooms were clean - but the phone in our room did not work was actually not connected to anything just there for display. Did not know that until people who were trying to reach us for our tour could not contact us!! House keeping notified and though prompt to attend did not fix the problem for 2 days!! Buffet average both at breakfast and dinner.

I recently stayed here on a business trip. The hotel is nice, good location to get to the waterfront but beach is not great (would recommend Camps Bay or Clifton if you want to be by a nice beach). The reason for my review is that the hotel is extremely overpriced - we subsequently stayed in a nicer hotel in camps bay for only £60 and the lack of security. Our phones, credit cards, passports etc got stolen from the hotel lobby. When we questioned them on their security we were told that the h... Read more

The Radisson Blu is in a superb location, you can have breakfast outside on the terrace and the ocean is right there, along with a small marina next to it. The V&A is a 5 minute walk and they also provide a free shuttle bus too, definitely the best place to go for shops and superb restaurants of all kinds, plus the big wheel which gives you a stunning view of the area. The rooms were ok, some of the colour schemes were a bit dull to say the least, the rooms overlooking the sea are much nicer t... Read more

I used to love staying at the Radisson Blue Hotel for various reasons, e.g. central location, next to the sea, great breakfast, wonderful service, clean rooms, great views, etc. but my last visit was disappointing. Firstly, I asked for a sea facing room when I booked but received a room facing a roof and building works. I had to pay R835 to upgrade to a business classroom facing the sea. This room was fabulous! The next day I was moved to a standard sea facing room but not after I had to check a... Read more

I had a room of the category business class which was almost like s suite with wonderful view on the adjacent marina and the V&A center. What impressed me most was the in room Nespresso machine with a selection of exquisite coffees. Unfortunately, room service did not bather to clean the cups after use. The hotel is near the new football stadium and in walking distance of the V&A or alternatively there is an hourly shuttle service to the V&A Center. This hotel has walls thin as paper which is a...

We are staying at the Radisson Blu Waterfront for 4 nights in a ocean facing business room. The hotel management surprised us with champagne, fruit plate and bed decoration! Service is amazing, We have been constantly using the free shuttle bus to the waterfront. Great location, if you prefer some exercise, it's less than 15 mins walk to the waterfront.

Growing up, I've had a history with the Carlson brand. There's an aesthetic to the brand that I have developed a liking for. This waterfront hotel is definitely something that helped in making my stay more relaxing. We had made a reservation here, and for the price it was at, it was good for what we paid for. Service was nice; showed what hospitality means for South Africans, which was basically very much like that in America. The breakfast buffet had a good array of items, and they were of good...

The hotel is currently in the misdt of renovations and it feels like they are drilling in my ears. We were not warned about this in advance. We just woke up to this experience. I cannot sleep, work in my laptop, make a phone call or even think. It is sooooo noisy.

I was on business trip to cape town and stayed there for two nights. I was really impressed with the excellent service in regards of room, food and activities. After a hectic day with my meetings I chose to destress myself in the pool followed by a seance of musculation exercices. Equipments and the facilities were very well maintain.

Stayed for a few nights while taking in the areas tourist attractions. The hotel is located a short walk from the shopping area and on the waterfront with views of the ocean. Staff were very helpful throughout our stay. We had breakfast each morning and dinner most evenings in the hotel, and all meals were great. Our room had a partial ocean view and was a good size and clean throughout. A bonus was to find that the hotel offered free pickup and drop of around the area. Would definitely st... Read more

I must warn readers that I love this hotel and its amenities and they just keep improving it all the time. The rooms are fantastic, and the views are a knock out. The hotel's location is so exquisite as well. Its near all the action but stuepndously quite with gentle wave crashing in the back ground if you sit outside and enjoy a drink or a meal or work as I am currently doing. The staff are wonderfully accommodating and super friendly - well done guys, please keep it up.

When somewhere I genuinely love to stay alters, it is usually not for the better. I always look forward to my first glass of wine on the terrace overlooking the sea arriving at this hotel, generally having a late lunch soothed by the sun glinting on swaying kelp, dolphins playing as I eat my first South African steak of the trip. This is a wonderful hotel, with genuinely warm, welcoming staff, and I look forward to staying again. Disturbing then to find changes, however small, but surprisi... Read more

Even though the Blu is still a short drive/walk from the waterfront attractions (which they conveniently had a regular shuttle to/from), it blows other area hotels away when it comes to the view and the price. We were pleasantly surprised by the well appointed 1 bedroom suite with an incredible view of the bay, and I have to say the concierge desk (Mujahid in particular) was more helpful than almost any I've ever experienced- they instantly knew our names, went out of their way to help with dinn...

We stayed here recently and were very pleased. Although technically a business hotel, it represents a great value. It is an easy 0.6 mile walk to the V&A waterfront (most of it along a pretty ocean walk) or you can take the free shuttle. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We stayed in one of the business class rooms overlooking the water and had a balcony with lounge chairs, glass walls etc--lovely. The architecture of the hotel incorporates a nautical theme that fits well with the lo... Read more

GReat value for money, location spot on and a great concierge service. Rooms could be a bit bigger but then I was traveling solo so didn't really worry much about this. Breakfast buffet is decent and the restaurant next to the waterline is fabulous. The shuttle service to the V&A waterfront is a great help.;

Always a winner for the view and classy atmosphere. Drinks prices in range with other hotels and restuarants in the area. Heaters around the tables a winner for as the sun sets the sea air chill strikes! Blankets are available but seems on request and not offered(not to our group anyway)...a lounger table was occupied by a handbag and when the managet removed it we moved across only to be ushered away in a rush - it is reserved! No reserved notices available for the table - really?! Waitress rec... Read more
