So the decor is a little dated. And the food is well....forget the food. Service in the restaurant and bar is on the slow side of slow. But honestly, when your suite offers uninterrupted views of the ocean and you can knock back a cocktail on the sea-facing deck....it's all ok with me.

Stayed for 6 nights in a fabulous room- very comfy king size bed, wonderful bathroom with double sinks and a standalone bath. Very good shower. Breakfast was delicious with large choice- we always say outside in the beautiful seating area overlooking the sea with table mountain to the side. Only 10 minutes walk to the town centre and alternatively there... More

This hotel has the standards expected of a Radisson hotel, although breakfast was not as good as at our previous hotels of this brand. The location is excellent, 10 minutes from the V&A Waterfront and every hour the hotel has a shuttle mini bus service to entrance 2 of the V&A shopping centre. We had a good room, and although...

We were very happy impressed with this hotel. From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't do enough go for us. The rooms are of a high standard and the hotel had all the facilities you will need. We had a lovely time eating our lunch overlooking the ocean and table mountain. The live entertainment was also very good. We... More

I was allocated to a room with central air conditioning. The temperature was set to 25 degrees Celsius on a very hot day. I was perspiring in my room. I complained and was told by the manager, Mahindran, that he will put me in a room on the 3rd floor with individual temperature control. He admitted that they are experiencing... More

Shocking food and service. 3rd annual visit and dinner event for me. Always been a great location for business events but was sorely let down this time by the food that was served and the lack of managements attention. Will probably not return.

Location is amazing. Atmosphere one of the best. Service is embarrassing and unprofessional, and quality of food is average. Not with the hour it took to be served and manner the waiters cared for the guests

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Uniquely located on the glittering azure waterfront of Cape Town, the hotel has the majesty of the legendary Table Mountain soaring behind it and every shopping and eatery delight beside it. It’s also a heartbeat away from Cape Town’s pulsing business centre, an easy stroll (or complimentary shuttle) to the famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront with its myriad of world-class shops, restaurants, cinemas and colourful working harbour, or a short hop to Africa’s most beautiful beaches and the call of our lush and ancient winelands beyond. The state-of-the-art Cape Town International Convention Centre is a mere 5 minutes away.The Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront provides the finest service, setting and comfort making your stay always one to remember and certainly one to repeat. ... more   less
