I have no words in all honesty!!! Let's list the various faults which I reported to reception a few hours after my arrival, and to which their response was nothing less than blasé: 1. Shower light not working; 2. Aircons too hot (even on 5*C); 3. Windows cannot close properly (after I opened them to let out the heat); 4.... More

I had a fantastic stay at the Radisson Blu PE. The staff were friendly, the facilities superb. They even handled load shedding with very little disruption. Of course the views and the rooms are world class.

During a one day business trip I booked into the hotel, planning on only staying one night. The only room available was a room of about R2999 for the night. Only arrived at the hotel at 10pm at night, bar was ok and people were very friendly. Room was clean and very nice, almost has a self catering feel to... More

My wife and I spent two nights at this hotel. Check in was fast and smooth. We received excellent service from the porter who took us to our 2nd floor room. Problems started when I decided to take a shower. The drainage system wasn't working. The entire bathroom floor was soon flooded with water. When I notified the check in... More

I enjoy my stays at the Radisson Blu in Port Elizabeth. The rooms face the beach and the view is fantastic. Leave the blinds open and watch the sunrise in the morning. Check out the surfers taking the waves. Room Service isn't value for money, so rather eat at the Tabu restaurant or one of the other restaurants along the... More

I travel extensively, due to business and stay at many hotels around the world. I stayed at Raddisson Blu Hotel in Port Elizabeth for one night. Checked in, went for a gym work out and returned to my room to be met with no hot water. However, due to it being late rushed a cold shower and went down to... More

The hotel has always been a favorite of mine as its in a beautiful location on the beach with views that go for miles, but the staff are generally not interested. Checking in etc was fine but the restaurant is very overpriced with no service at all. You get the feeling that they are doing you a favour and its... More

The hotel is a state of the art building, beautifully constructed. The view from the dining room as well as the conference facility that we've utilised, was spectacular. The service rendered by the staff was excellent. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the cusine delectable.

Have stayed at this hotel twice. For the money one pays the service is ok, (in the afternoon the service was poor - at breakfast much better) the rooms are ok, (ok mattress good bathroom, but signs of wear and tear on the curtains etc) the food is ok (would rather opt to dine out) - maybe its the design...
