Always enjoy going back to the Radisson PE when in the area on business, given the hotels excellent location, friendly service, great views and modern surroundings. Rooms are comfortable, with all the amenities for a pleasant short stay. Only down side is that it appears that routine maintenance is not occurring as frequently as required, as I have noticed small... More

A modern, clean and well-maintained hotel in a great location on Port Elizabeth's beachfront. Our room was beautiful, comfortable and the sea views, just magnificent. We only stayed here for 3 days (just after our wedding) and we were very impressed with the friendly, professional staff and the extra attention to detail that was given to make our room perfect...

After viewing the website and viewing what we could expect of the room, it was a huge disappointment. The rooms are very sparsely decorated, very little toiletries, nothing to make you feel welcome or to want you to spend anymore time in your room that is required.

The Radisson Blu hotel in Port Elizabeth is absolutely wonderful. We went to Port Elizabeth because of its proximity to some of the most amazing Big 5 game reserves like the Addo Elephant National Park the Kragga Kamma Game park, Pumba and the Shamwari Game Reserve. Besides the fact that it faces one of the most beautiful beaches in all... More

Great location - in Summerstrand one of the safest areas of Port Elizabeth. A five minute walk from the Boardwalk, next door to a supermarket, doctor, dentist and shopping complex, and a stroll across the road from the beach. Beautiful views from the room and pool area. Very nice staff.

Spacious rooms great in room dining and the best location. Not too far from the airport and right across the road from the beach... I jogged every morning next to the beach. Great start for the Garden Route

The final leg of the garden route saw us travelling along the N2 through mile after mile of government planted pine trees with small patches of indigenous forest and fynbos, finally arriving at Tsitsikamma national park. Here there is a chance to see whales playing in the sea very close to shore and to complete a hike through the forest... More
