HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 28 November 2016 via mobile

This hotel has the standards expected of a Radisson hotel, although breakfast was not as good as at our previous hotels of this brand. The location is excellent, 10 minutes from the V&A Waterfront and every hour the hotel has a shuttle mini bus service to entrance 2 of the V&A shopping centre. We had a good room, and although...

A great hotel with excellent service, friendly and very helpful staff. Spacious and well appointed room and the view of the water was just so good. The breakfasts were terrific and the lattes and service just great. Our entire experience was just superb. The concierge staff deserve a specific mention - knowledgeable, friendly and just so helpful.

We attended a wedding at the Radisson Blu and it was a Magical and Beautiful event! Our attending waiter was superb and the food was out of this world. The buffet offered a variety of tasty eats and everything was in abundance. However, their front staff should pay more attention to whatever functions are happening at their hotel, because they...

This hotel is fantastic. It is positioned on the waterfront. However we didn't have a water view but had views of Table mountain. We had room service and the food was lovely. It was delivered quickly and with a smile. The restaurant was also great.. The room was spacious,clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

We had a great stay, the room was excellent, the sea views stunning and staff very friendly. The only small niggle is the breakfast staff who are hopeless, but the food is great.I would stay here again.

This hotel's best feature by far is its staff. The most helpful and polite people I've come across. The hotel is in a good location but a little farther from the V&A Waterfront than I would have liked - they do run a free shuttle once an hour which is perfect though. The food is fabulous - if you're staying...

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
