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

At the end of our Garden Route drive we stayed at this well appointed hotel. We were greeted with a welcome drink and friendly helpful staff. The room, superior, was very spacious overlooking the ocean. Dinner was had in the restaurant. Again very friendly and capable staff. Delicious food (we had the buffet). Extensive selection of wines. Breakfast was fresh... More

Had been travelling around SA for a few weeks with some friends from Oz. We spent our last couple of nights in the Radisson in PE. Checkin was prompt and efficient, we were given a room on the top floor with fantastic views over the beachfront. The room while not overly large, was clean and very practicable, there was secure...

Unfortunately for us the weather was appalling. There were strong cold winds and lashing rain, however, the hotel is in a great location overlooking the bay with far reaching views. (29 Sept., 2014). The hotel is modern with all good facilities.

My first time at this "superior" hotel. What a disaster. The property is super shabby, although not old. The neglect can be seen a mile away. Curtains that dont close floors "lifting", dirty beds, fridge that does not work, staff that are not trained, The only good thing is the view from the rooms.

We have stayed at this hotel twice!!! The rooms are very modern and even have inter leading rooms. The basement parking bays is very small and there's hardly space outside the hotel for cars. The restaurant reservations can operate a bit more swiftly. My teenagers loved the selection on the buffet!!! This hotel overlooks summer strand beach, which carries a... More

Stayed at this Hotel in August with my friend. My biggest disappointment was the bathroom. I had to put a towel in front of the shower door to stop the water from leaking out on the tiles. Some of the tiles are lifting because of the water leaking. The bathrooms are open, so you have no privacy when taking a... More

we recently stayed at the hotel. The rooms were clean and tidy. Its great for business travel not so much for a romantic getaway. the breakfast was superb and their cheese cake is to die for. The reservations department however needs a bit of work.

We recently spent one evening at this hotel. The views were spectacular. Bedding clean. Unfortunately we were extremely disappointed with the urinal smell at the toilet! They attempted to come in and clean but there was an underlying smell that just did not go away🙀. I will think twice before booking into another Radisson hotel.
