Beautiful views, stunning location, staff friendly, bad food in restaurant room service useless. Room not ready on arrival, card did not work, waited a while for key to be sorted. Restaurant food was not up to standard not the usual South African quality and very expensive. Room Service was terrible, waited 1.5 hours for a Tuna Salad ( Salad Nicoise)... More

Room is really nice and clean. We ordered in-room dinner, it was served fast, it was good, but not super special. Breakfast however was really huge and really delicious! Parking in the garage for free!

I wish I had read some of the reviews before my wife booked the Radison Blu. Firstly I would have wondered if "Idah M" and other approving 'guests' were actually wearing sock puppets as they wrote their approval of this place. We stayed at the Radison not on one occasion but two this April. This was due to having pre-booked... More

We arrived with car - it took ages to collect our luggage. We asked for a hotel diner table and the receptionist explained it is not needed. After arriving one hour later in the hotel restaurant, tables were fully booked but only a few occupied. We were placed at a bar table which was dirty. The shower door couldn't be... More

Well this was a case of form over function . Yes the rooms are stylishly appointed but oh dear the shower leaks and the taps had been put on backwards so hot was cold and vice versa.

Dear Jenny M, I am rather disappointed that you felt your stay here was not satisfactory. It is very obvious that although we do deliver excellent services here at the Hotel as can be seen from the many excellent reviews, that we erred in your case. Regrettably the showers are a design flaw which my team and I are in... More

Staying at Radisson Blu Port Elizabeth is always memorable because of the proffessional service and courtesy from Managers such as Elliot and all Staff members in the front desk. Keep up that because it makes the difference with other Hotels around. Thank you for the professionalism and care always.
