“Great View From The Room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Port Elizabeth was a pleasant find for us. We will go back and we will stay in the Radisson when we do. Lovely hotel. Very friendly and chatty staff. Room was well appointed - although we did have a few problems with the air con (however we did open the window, which we actually preferred)

The room was clean, views were great. The frosted glass for the shower and toilet are not great when traveling with multiple family members. The breakfast was very good. The ride they offered was nice but wo u led have been good to know the charge before checking out.

The Radisson Blu Hotel in Summerstrand Port Elizabeth truly impressed us with a very prominent culture of friendly service. It very clear in the way that the staff treat the guests that client experience must be a priority in this hotel. The staff is deffinately well trained ,motivated and positive , you can feel it. We were truly impressed by the service abd attitude of the staff. We shall visit these people and this hotel again.

A beautiful modern hotel but in need of an upgrade, the rooms are neat, clean, well laid out and the bed good. The sea views from the rooms are stunning and the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good, lots of choice and fresh. The room service was prompt and professional, you MUST eat a burger WOW ! Unfortunately the shower door leaks a lot of water onto the bathroom floor, the hinges, seals, etc obviously tired. Cupboards can do with more hangers. Housekeeping was a let down, dirty dishes and cups left in our room two days in a row, but when we called them they responded quickly - but twice in two days ? Not good.
The Raddison is a bit far down the strip and shops and things are not within walking distance, you definitely need transport if you stay here. Overall a nice place to stay, 3 is maybe a bit harsh if there was a 3.5 I would give it.

Room Tip: All the rooms have sea views, higher floors offer great views, they also have less activity as the c...

Our family of 19 arrived here late and found the hotel to be very accommodating. They arranged for the kitchen to serve us a late dinner. Otherwise we would have been forced to go out in the rain to find a place to eat. This presents the one negative about this hotel. It is rather remote from shopping and eating places. In all other respects if was very nice. Spacious rooms, great breakfast, and well-appointed.

The room and service was excellent. The view from the room was great and the room layout is very good. One can wake up in the morning to a fantastic sea view from the bed, in fact one can view the sea from anywhere in the room including the bathroom. The food is good, although the selection is small, it is sufficient.

I stayed here for one night in July. This was my first visit to South Africa, and I found this hotel very reasonably priced, with excellent facilities. The room I was given had a double showered bathroom, a separate lounge area, very comfortable double bed and plenty of room to do some work (7th floor). The service was excellent, and the price less than 90 euros. Recommended.
