Radisson Blu Hotel, Port Elizabeth

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice hotel with an interesting swipe system to operate the lift, right pain it is to. Can be going all over the shop before getting to where you want to go. Fab room, overlooking the pool and the sea. Very modern boutique. Very comfy beds. Very uncomfortable designer chair, style over substance. Open plan bathroom with bath lighting is a nice touch, not so sure I would be so keen if my partner was ill though. Glass door loos are fast becoming my pet hate, especially as this one backs onto a glass door shower. Restaurant was good plus had excellent coffee for breakfast.

I’ve been staying here for the past 7 years due to great location, I have notive significant change for the better since the last time we were here a year a few months ago. We enjoyed our stay, service was good; the staff was attentive. The hotel has gone back to improved standards- I highly recommend it.

The hotel is clean and modern with large rooms, great views of the coast. A good 15 minute walk from the main centre of PE. The downside is the food and breakfast. The first night we ate in the restaurant, my partner ordered steak, it would have been easier to cut the sole of my shoe than this steak ! The breakfast is buffet style, there is no table service you even had to get your own coffee from a machine, and no boiling water to make a cup of tea, there was a hot water dispenser but it's not boiling water. The cooked breakfast is luke warm / cold and did not look very appealing, the baked beans in tomato sauce looked more like beans in mud ! The staff were not very helpful. The restaurant reminded me of an old BHS cafeteria. This hotel is not for British people, if you stay just book a room, breakfast is not worth the money.

A beautiful hotel with stunning views. Friendly and professional staff. Rooms are always neat and tidy. Great food and excellent variety as well. If you need a good night's rest this is the place to be.

Currently at Rasdion blu Port Elizabeth. As always, rooms are lovely. Shower a bit small, especially if you are not petite. Big bath space though. Breakfast is fresh and varied. Staff are helpful, friendly and offer great service.

Was lovely staying in the hotel. Friendly staff and rooms were very clean and the view was great. Slept like a dream and the breakfast was delicious. I will definitely book and stay at the Radisson Blu hotel again.

This hotel is very good value for money. We spent one night here before travelling onto Safari down the Garden Route. Rooms are modern and comfortable. Great view of the coast and the hotel is located on the sea front. Breakfast is good but a bit on the expensive side. We didn't get to try out any of the facilities during our overnight stay. We went to eat locally and there are quite a few strange characters in the local area who were a little intimidating.

I recently stayed at this hotel for one night on a business trip. It is however my second time stay at this very hotel. On arrival I was upgraded to a junior suite as the superior rooms were fully booked, which was great!! The junior suite was definitely bigger then the normal rooms as it provided an extra lounge area with a couch, coffee table, desk work area, tv and mini bar fridge. Otherwise all else is standard in the bedroom and bathroom. They don’t have a great selection of tv channels, just some of the basics. The signal isn’t great on most channels, so it makes the picture a little blurry. Loved that I had a full bathroom which included a bath tub and shower. It’s a semi open plan concept between the bedroom and bathroom, so it’s great that toilet area is semi private. I ordered some room service, needed something light to snack on, as I arrived quite late in the evening and was a bit hungry. So I ordered a cheese board with some fruit on the side, with a teapot of hot water with cut lemon. It took them close to 45minutes to bring this to me, which was very disappointing as I didn’t ask for a cooked meal. By the time it arrived I was ready for bed and had lost my appetite. The bed is super super comfortable, which made for a really pleasant nights rest. I also loved that they provided a dental kit in the bathrooms, whereas a lot of hotel you’d need to request reception to bring one should you need it. This particular room also had a beautiful view of the beach and some of the town as it was situated on the 18th floor. The breakfast selection in the morning was alright, had a hot and cold section depending on what you were in the mood for. Once again I find the service pretty slow here, and sometimes there isn’t anyone at the egg station to serve you. Often you need to wait a while before you find a waiter to flag down if you need anything. It’s good enough for a quick one night stay as it provides you with the necessities required, however they could do better with service overall.

Lovely clean hotel very friendly helpful staff Nice restaurant and bar with rooftop pool Great ocean views from higher levels, we were only staying overnight to catch early flight next day, airport only 10 mins away Level 15 photo from room

The hotel is situated close to the beach and our room had a beautiful view of the ocean and the harbour! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Our room was very basic; no cushions on the couch; no information booklet. Semi clean. Absolutely overpriced! Can find much better for value close by.
