We weren't sure about staying here initially & compromised due to cost when looking at some of the more expensive hotels within the V&A - it was our honeymoon so wanted something extra special. We also upgraded on the bay hotel in camps bay for the second part of our stay which was average- overall the Radisson blu was the better choice and cheaper by far & we are so glad we stayed here rather than in the V&A. It felt like you could leave the noise and hustle of the waterfront but be close enough to get to it by walking (5 mins) or by the shuttle bus. The hotel had a great lounger area & infinity pool, a serene view over the harbour watching all the cruises-we even saw dolphins one day! You could eat breakfast outside every day under the umbrellas which was lovely. The rooms were large and modern (we upgraded to a sea facing) and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating.
Only recommendations would be for a more frequent shuttle service -every 30 mins maybe? It seemed like the driver just sat in the van for 45 minutes waiting for the next trip. Also more options of food on the restaurant menu (although the food was delicious but limited in variety).
We would definitely return when we come back to Cape Town, a great base to explore the city but also to relax in.

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
