5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a great hotel. While in Cape I choose this location, right in the water front this hotel offers a lovely ocean view, my room was spacious and clean, and the service is the best. Nice spa facilities and very nice pool, unfortunately it was cold I could join the pool/closed.

Spend 3 nights here with the final night upgraded to a business suite due to a malfunctioning aircon. The view from this room is probably the rest in Cape Town with the beautiful waterfront precinct in of you and the Table Mountain in the background. Pity we couldn't spend 3 more nights in this room.

What a wonderful country and place to visit and an excellent hotel. The staff at the Radisson could not do enough for you, always there to help, very friendly and extremely accommodating in all areas from the restaurant, kitchen, reception and porters. I cannot speak too highly. The Concierge staff were also excellent providing guidance and advice. The Business Class... More

Firstly let me say I'm late in writing this review as my stay was Sep-Nov 2015. I currently on a train travelling from London to Glasgow with a little time on my hands so as the saying goes, better late than never. I spent close to three months in room 306, a business class room with an outstanding view. I... More

We had an enjoyable and relaxing stay 3 night stay at the Radisson Blu Waterfront at the start of our South African roadtrip. The business class room we stayed in (110) was excellent and although situated close to the bar area we never heard any undue noise. The room itself was more of a suite than a normal room and...

I travel to this hotel frequently on business and leisure. I normally enjoy the tranquil setting near the harbour, which compensates for the deteriorating service over the years and average food. However, after my last stay, I think I will make use of alternative hotels when traveling to Cape Town in future. A few low-lights from my recent stay: 1)... More

High class hotel at the water front. Everyone takes care of you and you may just relax. We visited the whole city with recommendations of the concierge, used their recommended taxis, and checked the restaurants with their help before going at any place. If you rely on them, you have the perfect day. The breakfast is superb. Very fresh und... More

I am here now. So disappointed. I had thought staying here would have been great. It is near the Victoria and Albert Waterfront and has a shuttle bus that runs hourly, which is great; but, room service is poor. It is 4pm and our room has not been serviced. I rang and they said service starts at one end of... More

We stayed for two nights only on a hectic tour of the highlights of Western SA. The staff were helpful, the location perfect and the sea front rooms are pretty special (Sunrise, sunset, cloudy skies, waterway activity, active bird life). We had a family suite- spacious and well appointed. If we were staying for longer it would have been even... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Uniquely located on the glittering azure waterfront of Cape Town, the hotel has the majesty of the legendary Table Mountain soaring behind it and every shopping and eatery delight beside it. It’s also a heartbeat away from Cape Town’s pulsing business centre, an easy stroll (or complimentary shuttle) to the famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront with its myriad of world-class shops, restaurants, cinemas and colourful working harbour, or a short hop to Africa’s most beautiful beaches and the call of our lush and ancient winelands beyond. The state-of-the-art Cape Town International Convention Centre is a mere 5 minutes away.The Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront provides the finest service, setting and comfort making your stay always one to remember and certainly one to repeat. ... more   less
