Built in 2010 for the World Cup, Radisson and the developers cut a few corners on quality for time/money, but overall I think this is a very good hotel due to its friendly staff, good location and low price. We spent one night here as a take off point for driving the Garden Route. Checked in late but had a... More

Colleagues and i stayed here for long stay in July. The staff were friendly and helped explain check in/check out processes well to all the different nationalities of our team. The rooms had an impressive view over the bay. International guests should be advised of power outages which happen most evenings. Make sure you charge all your items during the... More

Spent 3 weeks travelling south Africa and this was by far our worst room. The bathroom reminds me of a gym changing room and the room is so basic you feel that you've entered the wrong room. Disappointing by their own standards

Dear Garetholeary121, Thank you for your review posted here on TripAdvisor. I was rather saddened to have read that the Hotel's design and layout was not to your taste. That said, I trust this did not detract too much form your stay and hope the service, food and balance of our offering met with your expectations. Kind regards Desmond GM More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights 8 to august and we really enjoyed our stay. The room was smart and modern and comfortable.The bedding was luxurious. The view from our high floor of the ocean was amazing thanks to the ceiling to floor glass. The hotel has a lovely atmosphere. Safe undercover parking. Reception and staff were... More

Been to a number of business workshops at Radisson Blu, PE. Disappointing, less than average yet they demand top dollar. I would suggest getting the basics right - hot coffee at breaks as opposed to lukewarm, presentation of food is so ordinary as to be uninviting. Sorry ! Great spa though.

My spouse and I were just in Port Elizabeth this past weekend. We stayed in a lovely suite on 16th floor of the Radisson Blu on Summerstrand. There were all the usual/expected amenities (beautiful quality linens, comfortable bed, yadda yadda), but what REALLY impressed us was the in-room espresso-maker – preferred their coffee to our own! – and the UNLIMITED...

Food was great and staff friendly, had a lekka function. Rooms are spacious and all have an insane view of the sea. Close to the beach and the boardwalk there is a lot to do in the area. Go to the top floor and take some pics :)

Lovely stay, service was excellent, the room was very nice and spacious. The view from my room was awesome very relaxing. Had a sea view room. All the restaurants are located close to the hotel. Walking on the beach is also optional as it is safe and patrolled.

Good hotel with facilities to match. Not noteworthy, but comfortable and spacious room with comfortable beds (I was in a twin room). Small bath towels and no shampoo - only a tiny bar of soap, a body wash, body lotion and conditioner. Not nice at all, so bring your own. Breakfast was very average. The coffee was very disappointing. Nice... More

The staff were all so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were clean and comfortable with the most amazing views looking across the ocean and the sweep of the bay. Only had lunch in the hotel and ordered a salad from the snack menu. Well prepared and fresh.
