5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed there 8 days and enjoyed it. Staff were helpful and very positive Bongani (I think is his name)at breakfast was very helpful. Nothing was too much hustle. Reception were brilliant too, room was amazing. The storm was an experience.

I was originally unsure about the Radisson Blu Waterfront as it is a little "generic" and "chain-like" for my taste. I tend to prefer top end luxury properties but had booked this on points to save money for the later game lodges. However, at the end of the day I was pleasantly surprised. The service was good enough, the view was wonderful from the top floor 2 bedroom suites and the location worked for us. The rooms are a little spartan and modern for our taste but that's personal preference. If you need a lot of space, the 2 bedroom suites are ENORMOUS. In the end we were glad we were here and not in the city center. It's a good option for people who like a good hotel but aren't looking to spend a fortune for that part of the trip. The breakfast buffet was decent. The room service food was terrible - inedible. The turndown service was inconsistent. But these were little things in the grand scheme because I hadn't actually expected anything going in.

We booked this hotel for 4 nights and they are claiming that its 5 stars hotel but unfortunately it will not reach 3 stars. they gave us a room with new paint and the smell was crazy my wife start cough once we entered then we request to have another room and they like okay and gave us first floor room with very bad view then we discovered that their is no ropes or slippers or even tissues and suddenly one of the staff just entered the room without any permission to give us a water bottle and the room service food is so bad we waited for 40 min and we got cold food, we don't recommend anyone to book in this hotel

Stayed in a 2 bedroom villa.... clean, comfortable beds....nice large shower with hot pressurized water. The living room and kitchen give it a homely yet holiday feel and the balcony has an amazing view of the ocean of which you get to see any boats or ships sailing by and the seagulls coming in to quench their thirst from the swimming pool. Buffet was good particularly breakfast... wide variety although didn't have lunch or dinner at the hotel. Unfortunately or could i say fortunately i didn't find it like a romantic spot so would not sell it as such, but hey i was there with friends so it didn't matter.

There's not much to say outside of: this place was AMAZING! The staff was wonderful , the room service menu items were tasty, the hotel was very close to everything, and I'd stay there all over again each and every time I have the opportunity to visit CT.

Amazing stay at this lovely hotel. Views from our balcony were stunning, breakfast outdoors was gorgeous! Shuttle to take you to the waterfront and back. Room was nice and spacious. Only compliant would be that the room wasn't always cleaned to standard- pillows left on the floor, sofa bed not made back into sofa. Other then that it was a perfect stay.

We recently went to Cape Town to experience the birth of our first grandson... naturally the excitement drove our very being on the day! After seeing our grandson and the proud parents we made our way to the hotel, imagine our elation when we got to our room to see the welcome gift and letter .... thank you for your thoughtfulness. Moreover we express our sincere gratitude to your wonderful staff who made our stay so pleasant!

This is a very nice hotel on the waterfront in Cape Town. We had a business class room directly facing the water, and had a great views of the water and the mountains. The room was spacious with a large bathroom, bedroom, as well as a sitting room with a couch and desk. The business class room lets you separate the bedroom from the living room with sliding doors if you wish. I'm honestly not sure what we paid for the room as it was part of a larger bundled package, but the bigger room was worth the expense. We used the free shuttle to go to the VA Waterfront daily. It leaves and returns every hour. We ate most meals at the waterfront, and also took a sunset cruise. The breakfast at the hotel was great. Lots of options, including a la carte items they would make fresh for you, including all kinds of eggs, pancakes, french toast, etc. Very convenient to have a bed and breakfast rate, and not have to worry about what to do for breakfast. One morning we had an early excursion scheduled, and we called down to have a boxed breakfast ready for us to take with us. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Cape Town. After visiting downtown, I personally was happy we stayed along the waterfront. It was a quick trip when needed, but the waterfront was lovely and I'm so glad we chose this hotel.

One of the nice hotels in Cape Town. LOCATION , LOCATION, LOCATION - Right on the water great view of the Table Mountain / Cable cars and very close to the shopping areas and across the street is the Headquarters of FIFA. Excellent outdoor breakfast area overlooking the ocean. Tremendous selections of fruits and pastries. Nice breakfast selections as well. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Building is all white thus tells us about the exceptional cleanliness.

The Radisson Blu Waterfront is a beautiful hotel with very friendly staff. Our spaceous room had a big bathroom as well as a minibar and a safe. Wifi-reception was great and free. The room was located to the side of the hotel which gave us great view including Waterfront, Table Mountain and the stadium. We didn't miss the ocean view one bit since we got that having the delicious breakfast out on the terrasse. The hotel provides a free hourly shuttle to the Waterfront district with it's huge shopping centre and endless options for food drink and entertainment. We felt very comfortable at the Radisson Blu Waterfront and can only warmly recommend it.
