The menu is expensive thus one expects quality service. It was shocking to say the least. From the time we at down till we walked out it was non existent. Had to call the watering staff to attend to us on numerous occasions whilst they stood around chatting. Incorrect meals served after waiting for eternity for it to be served,...

Perfect situation. Business class rooms are amazing. Watch the dolphins every morning. 5 mins from v and a waterfront. Views Of table mountain. Can't ask for anymore. But the jewel in the crown of this hotel is the staff. They are positively wonderful. Every single one of them smiled and genuinely seemed to care about your stay. Ok service in...

I met a cousin there for lunch and we sat outside and enjoyed the wonderful view of the sea. I ordered a chicken curry and got a shrimp curry -- fortunately my partner sampled my food (she always does) and remarked on the shrimp, which I am allergic to. As I can't eat them I don't really know what they...

Compared to a lot of other hotels in Cape Town this is very good value and undoubtedly has one of the best views I have come across. Super large balcony with stunning views across the bay to Robben Island with a procession of dolphins every morning.

This is a wonderful hotel with fabulous friendly and attentive staff. We got a room with a sea view which was soo worth it. Would love to return one day- Cape Town is the cleanest, smileyist city we have ever visited with a fabulous laid back vibe. This hotel makes the experience complete

Service at breakfast was poor having failed to attract any staff to come to the table then went and asked twice for tea and coffee. Second day was better to be fair. Bus service is only every hour and coming back is often full and then you have to wait and hope that they will come back again!

One of the best hotels I have stayed in. Spacious rooms with all the amenities expected. The view for breakfast is truly stunning, with either the bay or table mountain to look at. The breakfast is very good with attentive staff. It would be fair to say we enjoyed Cape Town even more because of this hotel.

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
