The Radisson Blu Hotel was the first hotel of our 3-week honeymoon. The reviews on tripadvisor were very inconsistent and we both decided to not expect the world from this hotel. We were pleasantly surprised.
We arrived around 8am in the morning, well before check-in. We were invited to have breakfast at the hotel while they sorted out a room. There was plenty of choice at Breakfast and we sat outside overlooking the sea. While having breakfast they advised that a standard room would not be available, however they had a upgrade room available and offered it for a very reduced price. We gladly accepted.
The room was a couple of floors up and the balcony overlooked the sea, habour and table mountain. Amazing views. The room was a large and of a high standard and everything you'd expect from a hotel of this kind.
The hotel had a outside swimming pool overlooking the sea (which we didn't use due to the weather), a well equipped gym and a extremely small indoor pool. The service from staff was somewhat inconsistent. We recieved superb service most times but this was let down by some members of staff who didn't appear interested in being there. There was a shuttle bus to the waterfront which we used on many occasions, contrary to other reviews, it was quick and regular.
If we returned to Cape Town we would certainly return to this hotel due to its position in Cape Town.
