I stayed at the Radisson Blu for business travel during the Summer of 2014. I was initially supposed to stay in a standard room, but my room was not ready when I arrived. The staff was incredibly nice about the situation and upgraded me to a business class room--free of charge. I ended up staying an additional two nights with... More

This was our first experience of Cape Town and we could not have been more impressed with our choice of hotel, Located just outside of the busy Waterfront area. We felt that it was an excellent place to be. Quiet, with a lovely terrace for breakfast, lunch, dinner but with an hourly shuttle bus to take us in to the... More

The hotel is nice but I am not sure it warrants a five star rating. The location is beautiful and right on the sea, and a ten minute walk to the V and A waterfront. The rooms generally face the mountain or the sea. Try and get a sea facing room although I think that all these rooms are called... More

This was the first visit to South Africa for my partner and I. We've stayed in 5 start resorts all over the world and I must say the staff here is the friendliest, most professional and accomodating I've met. While the hotel isn't in Camps Bay, the trendy place to be in Cape Town, its location on the waterfront is... More

Wife and I stayed for 2 nights It is on waterfront, between the harbor and Atlantic. The hotel is modern and sleek. The inside reminds me of a high end cruise ship. The rooms are above average in size with a full bath with tubs. The beds were very comfortable The staff are excellent. Location close to Victoria and Alfred... More

A very nice and trendy hotel on the waterfront in CapeTown - only few minutes walk from Waterfront Shopping Mall and only a few minutes walk from restaurants and bars. Perfect location ON the waterfront, clean rooms, friendly staff, nice and tasty breakfast, bar and restaurant. This was my first visit to SouthAfrica, but "I'll be back" visiting both CapeTown...

4 night stay in this lovely hotel for my 60th birthday, beautiful views from the balcony, very comfortable queen sized bed. Very well mannered helpful staff, lovely water front garden with white fluffy towels on the sunbeds, amazing selection of buffet breakfast and great birthday dinner on the night, a complimentary bottle of fiz in the room for the occasion,...

In October of 2014, my wife and I had a rather disappointing meal here. The decor is great, service was friendly, but the food was rather sub-par for the price. My wife wrote the restaurant afterwards to give some input about the lack of quality, presentation, and price balance. The chef, Grant Kennedy, wrote her back, announcing a new menu... More

When choosing a "chain" hotel group,you can expect a safe,consistent,recognisable standard of service.But, every now and then,within that chain,you discover an exceptional branch!One that breaks the mold! I have just spent 7 glorious nights at the Radisson Blu,Waterfront ,Cape Town(mid January/peak season !)..As a senior flight attendant for a leading UK Airline,I have benefited from staying at multiple 5 star...
