A good hotel, nice rooms, comfy bed, with amazing views. Dinner is very good, a menu that will satsfy most. On the downside, some maintenance is required. In my room the shower drain was blocked, but I managed to clear it, the blinds got stuck and could not fully close. Lifts slow at peak hours. Otherwise not much to fault.

We spend one night here and loved the view through the huge windows. It's nice to have block out curtains to be able to sleep in a bit. We couldn't manage to get the WiFi to connect. The spa was fully booked so we weren't able to get a treatment. The staff are efficient and friendly.

Great hotel for business or pleasure. Right on the beachfront/promenade. Ideal for morning or evening exercise. The hotel has everything that a modern hotel requires. Onsite gym, restaurant and rooftop bar. Conference facilities as well. Service was great and staff extremely helpful. Changed me from a dreaded smoking room to a non smoking. Don't think I would of survived an... More

We visited whilst on business in Port Elizabeth for a 3 night stay. Occupied a business class room located on a corner and found this to be quite spacious with a small entrance area and plenty of room in the main bedroom area. The closets however are very small and situated in a passage which makes access difficult if there... More

The staff are friendly and go the extra mile. The floor to ceiling window in the room allows for the most spectacular views over the ocean and the compact bathroom is perfect. The pool deck is beautiful, also with beautiful views of the ocean. The breakfast is tasty with so much to choose from. All in all a great experience.... More

loved the compactness and style of my room. Excellent furnishings and beautiful sea views.The spa experience ( Camelot) was healing balm. The breakfast more than adequate. The booking in and booking out process flowed smoothly . Woman alone... felt safe and secure and the staff was friendly and very helpful.

Perhaps it was just my room, but I was a bit disappointed. My shower door leaked, the toilet smelt bad and my window couldn't close. The staff were exceptional. The view is absolutely amazing with a full wall window overlooking the ocean. Breakfast could have been better. 3 star at best.No consideration for Muslim/ Hindu/Vegetarian guests.

This is a great hotel to impress your customers. I have hosted events, dinners and meetings at the Radisson, and found the staff to be very professional, competent and friendly.

We attended a conference at the Radisson and it's been a while since I stayed at the Radisson. I remembered why I love them so much. Modern clean decor, attentive management and staff. The breakfast is the typical Radisson wide choice. We were very well looked after. (The manager happily printed my boarding pass.) With the Radisson, be it Lagos... More
