This is a great hotel to impress your customers. I have hosted events, dinners and meetings at the Radisson, and found the staff to be very professional, competent and friendly. The facilities and accommodation are the best in PE. International Hotel quality with the friendliness and caring of a local guesthouse. based on the people working there, I would

Dear Thomas M,

Thank you for visiting the Radisson Blu, Port Elizabeth recently. My team and I are delighted to note from your survey, that you enjoyed your stay with us here at the Hotel.

It makes me extremely proud when we have lived up to the ethos of “YES I CAN!” and with this have created an exceptional experience for our guests. This in turn will hopefully ensure that
the Radisson Blu becomes your “home” when next in Port Elizabeth.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our Hotel in the hopefully not too distant future.

We attended a conference at the Radisson and it's been a while since I stayed at the Radisson. I remembered why I love them so much.

Modern clean decor, attentive management and staff. The breakfast is the typical Radisson wide choice. We were very well looked after. (The manager happily printed my boarding pass.)

With the Radisson, be it Lagos Nigeria or Istanbul Turkey or as it is, PE South Africa, you can be sure of quality.

My husband and I spent a few nights here at the start of our honeymoon and were treated so very well by the super friendly staff. Morris, in particular, really went the extra mile to help us with all of our needs and requests. The restaurant and bar staff were also amazing. The rooms are very clean and ours overlooked the ocean, which was a beautiful sight to wake up to every morning. We loved this hotel and would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a business class room overlooking the ocean.

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...
