The staff were friendly and helpful and the location was great with the waterfront and V&A shopping centre a 10 min walk or take the hotels free shuttle. Dinner was good with nice variety good portion...

We booked this hotel for one simple reason - well 2 - 1 being the pool and 2. you think the standard of a 5 star is 5 stars. This is what i have learnt - If there are a lot of conference rooms in a hotel - its because they are used for the masses, companies and people attending...

Well, as we have been staying here here quite many times over the years, this is a hotel we like.

So the decor is a little dated. And the food is well....forget the food. Service in the restaurant and bar is on the slow side of slow. But honestly, when your suite offers uninterrupted views of the ocean and you can knock back a cocktail on the sea-facing deck....it's all ok with me.

Stayed for 6 nights in a fabulous room- very comfy king size bed, wonderful bathroom with double sinks and a standalone bath. Very good shower. Breakfast was delicious with large choice- we always say outside in the beautiful seating area overlooking the sea with table mountain to the side. Only 10 minutes walk to the town centre and alternatively there...

This hotel has the standards expected of a Radisson hotel, although breakfast was not as good as at our previous hotels of this brand. The location is excellent, 10 minutes from the V&A Waterfront and every hour the hotel has a shuttle mini bus service to entrance 2 of the V&A shopping centre. We had a good room, and although...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Uniquely located on the glittering azure waterfront of Cape Town, the hotel has the majesty of the legendary Table Mountain soaring behind it and every shopping and eatery delight beside it. 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
