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

My husband and I spent a few nights here at the start of our honeymoon and were treated so very well by the super friendly staff.

Port Elizabeth was a pleasant find for us. We will go back and we will stay in the Radisson when we do. Lovely hotel. Very friendly and chatty staff. Room was well appointed - although we did have a few problems with the air con (however we did open the window, which we actually preferred)

A beautiful modern hotel but in need of an upgrade, the rooms are neat, clean, well laid out and the bed good. The sea views from the rooms are stunning and the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good, lots of choice and fresh. The room service was prompt and professional, you MUST eat a burger WOW !... More

Our family of 19 arrived here late and found the hotel to be very accommodating. They arranged for the kitchen to serve us a late dinner. Otherwise we would have been forced to go out in the rain to find a place to eat. This presents the one negative about this hotel. It is rather remote from shopping and eating... More

The room and service was excellent. The view from the room was great and the room layout is very good. One can wake up in the morning to a fantastic sea view from the bed, in fact one can view the sea from anywhere in the room including the bathroom. The food is good, although the selection is small, it... More
