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. But I guess worst of all was the hotel restaurant - just don't bother as not only was the waitress surly and huffy... More

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

Beautiful sea view even though our room was on the side! Comfortable beds - room a bit small but fine for one night. Bathroom area is world class Fantastic little restaurant opposite within walking distance.

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.

Essentially a business hotel. The room was fine - what you'd expect for an impersonal, business hotel. Excellent view of beach and sea. It's not really near anything of interest in Port Elizabeth. Food in restaurant was good and the breakfast choice was excellent.
