“EXCELLENT POSITION”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014

Great Hotel - ideally located for Ocean & Water front Retail/Restaurant Centre. Free and regular Hotel bus service which was great. Friendly staff, good service. There was a Guest Relations Team who could not have been more helpful. They soredt/booked Restaurants, Car Rental & City Tours - a very positive team.
Best rooms overlooking Ocean - don't be fobbed off with side facing room.
Breakfasts are the best I have experienced.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Insist on Ocean front view

stayed here for one night in a business suite with a sea view. Room was amazing with free sweet and savoury snacks at sundown time. Breakfast was brilliant and staff friendly and attentive. Only thing is shuttle bus is very small and not everyone waiting got on

My stay here was absolutely fantastic. I came down on holiday for a little birthday R&R and it was a great experience. The room was very clean and the in-room espresso maker was a nice morning wake up. I absolutely recommend getting one of the business class rooms to get a great view. The pool is not big, but plenty of room to lay out for sun. The restaurant also has quite a few options and was priced very reasonable coming from the US. The service is sometimes a little slow, but with the great view over the water, it is not a bad wait. The hotel is also a short walk, or complimentary shuttle away, from the V&A waterfront which has all the shopping and good you would like. This is also where you get the ferry to Robben Island, so there are several activities in a close area. Overall, I would absolutely stay here again the next time I am in Cape Town.

I stayed here for 2 nights upon arriving in Cape Town - great first impression. The outdoor eating / drinking area has great views onto the water and Robbin Island creating a great holiday environment. I would have to say that this is the best location for cocktails on an evening in the whole of Cape Town and the food is very good too - the breakfast is one of the best I have ever had - so much choice! The rooms are well catered and the infinity pool rather lovely - the only thing that let this place down was the slow service in the restaurant. Otherwise highly recommend! I would certainly stay here again.

Dear Sugartot,

What a fantastic review and we appreciate the time that you have taken to provide us with valuable feedback.

So happy to hear you enjoyed our restaurant and bar facilities and yes a lot of Capetonians will agree about The Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront's terrace being the best spot for sun downer cocktails.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the unacceptable slow service you've experienced in the restaurant but please be advised this has been noted and addressed accordingly.

Looking forward to your return.

Stunning view from our room! It felt and heard as if we were on top of the sea! Beautiful bird life too! I had a bird sitting on my window sill... he sang to me :-)

Everything was exceptional... the only suggestion I have, the service could be a little more better in the restaurant.

The bed and in-room TV and bar and towels and bathroom was fantastic! Very comfy!!

A beautiful hotel, a beautiful setting overlooking the Atlantic. I tried to change my standard room, which was dark, small and south facing. No way i was told. At R4,8k a night, every room should be "business class". No newspapers, being charged for parking makes no sense at that price. Anyway the staff is friendly, the breakfast and lunch menu extensive and delicious. Housekeeping is very , very patchy.

We have just returned from yet another stay at the Radisson hotel in the waterfront. As usual everything there was excellent. This is now our 13the visit and we hope to return again next year all being well. The staff are very nice. Some have been there for some time now are always are very welcoming to us. Thanks to Paul and Victor and Abigail and Letitia and the ' boys and girls' who serve round the pool side who so helpful and pleasant. All goes to make for a very happy stay. The rooms are very nice as is the service and the food. 10 out of 10 all round.
