5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A bland business hotel. The bar and restaurant have no ambience. The food is ok. Rooms are comfortable. The gym is decent. Good location and great sea views. There are many more decent hotels in Cape Town.

Close but Not on Waterfront Modern..nice room fantastic view if you get sea view room Staff gentle Shuttle service on the h. To waterfont and at quarter come back Price average Recvomended if you do not lule to be on the noise watergront but close to A wallkng distance.

Stayed here for 6 nights and overall the hotel is good. Starting to feel a bit dated but everything works and the staff are super friendly. Breakfast is decent enough and one of the best views in town

Hi Nicol and Team, we just wanted to say thank you for everything you did for us to make our weeks stay extra special. The proposal went off without a hitch and you and your team were excellent and kept it a secret! The room was amazing and we couldn't have asked for better service. Thank you for all the arranging you all did. We will definitely be back. Becky and Charlie x

I was born in Cape Town and regularly return for both business and family holidays... I used to have a rule - stay in a different hotel each time so I could finally find the best overall hotel for Cape Town, Well - now I just stay here. Its location, its breakfast, its staff (especially the forecourt staff), its view and its pool together make it the best. Pay the extra and get a business class suite - worth every cent. It may not be the fanciest. It may not have the best service of any hotel - but overall package for Cape Town it doesn't get better than this. Oh yes - and of course its value is excellent as well.

This is not the first time i have highlighted how poor the waiter service is at the resturant. Over a year ago i had a business lunch and we waited around 20min for a waiter to come help us with out food order and tgen 45min to get the food... they were not even that busy. Recently had drinks with visiting freinds .. and guess what ... same thing .. after waiting 20min we had to physically call a waiter to give us a menu. Drink orders took 15 min to arive! Considering the "5 star" standard this place claims ... service is worse than spur. This is my second review of the same kind .. poor service .. a year later. Nothing has changed, perhaps management needs to change. Oversees visiters told me that the BLU version of the Radisson franchise .. is by reputation the worst of the franchise even oversees. Perhaps its done on purpose?

Stayed here with wife and children. Generally very good. Breakfast is excellent. Good location. Don't book the private car tour to the peninsula if you can help it. Is very overpriced. Use the red bus instead and book in advance (great value).

We had some cocktails here on a Sunday afternoon. The view over the ocean is amazing and you can also see a big part of Robben Island. It is very relaxing. The cocktails were delicious but the service in the restaurant was very slow. Great place to have a sundowner!

This hotel has a great outlook over the Bay to the west of the Victoria and Albert Wharff and Marina area. Any of the rooms on the front of the hotel have a great view of the bay. The lobby opens out through the restaurant to a lovely terrance and bar where you can have a great breakfast or sit out and have coffee or cocktails in the evening. The rooms vary in size, we have had a standard room and been lucky enough to be upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite. All the rooms are well fitted out and well maintained. The hotel staff could not be friendlier or more efficient. We had a minor medical emergency one evening and reception had a doctor with us in less than 10 minutes. It is safe to walk to the V and A restaurants and shopping Mall during the day if you wish but the hotel runs a shuttle bus which runs to quite late in the evening. You can also catch a public transport bus outside the hotel which takes you down to Seapoint and onto Camps bay and Hout Bay. Well recommended.

Moved from a city centre hotel to the Radisson and delighted we did..... it feels a LOT safer. Great views and large rooms. Small number of sun loungers but most guests seems to be out sightseeing. Good, well equipped, gym with Technogym machines. Breakfast good. One small issue is that non-hotel guests come for lunch and they reserve the better lunchtime tables
