Excellent hotel, great location, all rooms have the ocean view. Breakfast has a wide variety of food and you can enjoy while looking over indian ocean front. Every room has the wifi connection which is free of charge for the room guests. there is an internal parking lot too.

The least well maintained of all the Radisson blu we have been to. The restaurant has a very poor ventilation. The rooms are quite basic. But the view was lovely. They wanted to charge us a different rate than the booking rate we came in with. We had to argue and it took them over 30 minutes to fix the... More

We had only one night at the Radisson and just wanted a comfortable, dependable hotel - it defintely delivered all we expected. Clean, comfortable bedroom and bathroom, with that general feel of affordable luxury. Location is good for a stroll on the waterfront.

The Radisson Blu has an amazing views and a great position on the seafront in Port Elizabeth. My room had a floor to ceiling window and one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in in a long time. HOWEVER, my experience at the hotel was let down by inconsistent messages from the Reception team and lack of information from... More

Stayed here for part of our honeymoon. Had issues with the shower flooding the floor on the first night. After 2 complaints we were moved to a suite which was exceptional! Lovely views overlooking the sea. The hotel organised rose petals in the room on the first night with some dessert treats which was very romantic. Would definitely recommend based... More

We spent one night in a standard room with a sea view. The room was adequate in size but some of the lights were not working and the wifi was down on the entire floor too. A bit frustrating. The restaurant was fine though my dish was too salty.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at this lovely hotel. We loved our seaview room, ultra comfortable bed, in-room dining, friendly and helpful staff, and the close proximity to the beach and boardwalk. I treated myself to a relaxing massage and pedicure at the spa. The therapist was skilled and professional. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone... More
