Radisson Blu Hotel, Port Elizabeth

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I have stayed at this hotel several times now and am always thrilled by the views from the hotel room. Very conveniently located in Summerstrand, right opposite the beach. It has a neat gym, swimming pool and restaurant. Staff were friendly and helpful as always. Parking is a bit tight but secure and safe. This is my favorite hotel in Port Elizabeth.

Very nice room, well appointed, nice amenities, very clean with an excellent bed, all in what seems to be the upscale section of Summerstrand/Port Elizabeth. No complaints on the room. Although most of the staff was friendly, the Reception Staff (Dorothy in particular) was far from welcoming. We had already left our bags with the nice bellman around 11:30am and, after receivng a lecture about check-out and check-in times from the first woman at Reception, we were told to come back around 1:00pm for our room. We understand check-in is at 3:00p, and truly appreciated the effort to get us a room earlier. We were in no way demanding. This request is often able to be fulfilled with no lecture and usually done with a smile. When impossible, a simple explanation is all that is required. We never expected Dorothy's reaction to our return at 1:00pm which was very rude. When I remember our stay at the Radisson Blu, unfortunately the positive of the room will be overridden by the negative reception received.

Excellent Service. Beautiful hotel, stunning! Gorgeous people. Location is splendid. The best amenities gym sauna bar food is authentic.

Very impressed with the hotel (one night stay, Feb 2011). Very modern, comfortable, updated rooms with plenty of space, with terrific view. Great location right on the beach (boardwalk with restaurants was about 25 min walk away). The hotel restaurant was delicious, the staff was warm and welcoming, and the pool area was picture-perfect. Recommended!
