I took the family to South Africa starting with a Safari and moving onto Cape Town. Having been to SA before, my main concern with having the family with me was safety. This hotel is in a very safe place and provides transport should you not want to walk outside. The location is perfect. It is a 10 minute walk... More

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary. They treated us with a bottle of champagne in the room. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We swam in the rim pool and had a delicious seafood buffet that I would highly recommend. Breakfast was also a huge variety to chose from. The view from the dining area is wonderful. There... More

Although we had a bad start at this hotel with a few issues with the electrics and a blocked drain, the staff were wonderfully helpful and quickly moved us at a room on the third floor. Here the view was stunning and we were able to see both the sunrise and sunset. The rooms are generously sized, the location was... More

We stayed at the Radisson Blu twice on the same trip to South Africa. The views (and proximity to the sea from the sea view rooms (we were in a business class room) cannot be beaten and I would stay here again just for this. Service and standards need improvement. Staff is very helpful and well meaning but keep overlooking... More

Stayed here prior to a regent cruise and was impressed. The room was large modern and comfortable with every amenity you could wish for. The breakfast was an extensive buffet served on the terrace overlooking the ocean, delicious. Had dinner in the hotel restaurant and the food was both excellent and cheap ( less than £20 per head including drinks).... More

This is a good hotel. The room decor is quite minimalist, so if that's your thing you'll like it. The breakfast is great, a really good choice and staff are very helpful. I only ate one other time at the hotel which was lunch by the pool, it was good. From the deck we saw dolphins and whales swim past... 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
