Johannesburg, South Africa
Reviewed 25 August 2016

It is a very good hotel to stay at. The staff is very polite, friendly, and always eager to assist. Its proximity to the airport and beach is an added bonus. If you come from a big metropole like Johannesburg you feel like you are in heaven because of the absence of traffic where the hotel is located.

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...

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.

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...

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.
