Nice hotel and whilst not at the V&A waterfront is not far away (free shuttle service from the hotel) and is on a nice piece of coast. Rooms were below average, service was slow but the food was excellent, particularly the breakfast.

We've spent here first two night of our RSA trip - and it was great stay, with all the support of hotel crew, very good restaurant and fantastic overview of the waterline. not the cheap one - but definitely a good one!

Most of what ruined our experience at this Radisson Blu was the customer service, or lack there of. When we arrived at the hotel no one helped us with our bags or directed us to reception. Several ladies where at their post, none gave us a sign that they were available to help us. When we finally approached one, we...

My second time staying at this hotel and it's one of my all time favourites. The rooms are beautiful and if you can stretch to a sea view even better. The breakfasts are a real treat with a choice of everything you can think of and to enjoy on the sun terrace is a real luxury.. The sunbeds and pool...

The hotel is between a very nice golf course and the ocean marina. It has superior rooms with ocean view and standard rooms. The rooms are very nice, modern, large, well kept and so is the bathroom. Very good breakfast. Very good spa and gym. Wifi works very well. Dining by the ocean front is lovely. The hotel offers a...

I really enjoyed this hotel. I thought the location was great, very close to the waterfront. I am a runner, so I had immediate access to the boardwalk along the ocean to run. The rooms were very clean and the hotel was well kept. They do exchange currency at this hotel. we did book an excursion through the concierge here....

Overpriced Radisson Blu about 10-15 minute walk from waterfront Rooms are underwhelming without any Character. Redeeming quality is having Breakfast outside overlooking the ocean Food quality is fair with bar options too If you don't want to pay the exhorbitant Waterfront prices. This is a good option

very close to waterfront and has shuttle bus running every hour would take 15 mins to walk there, opposite the football stadium and there is a golf course. The rooms facing the sea have a fantastic view you can see Robin Island and in the kelp beds if front of the hotel we saw dolphins in the morning

Rooms are great. Front desk and concierge services are 5*. Buffet breakfast terrific except for the spotty service. You don't need a lot of service for a buffet but getting coffee and the incidentals is challenging. Other than the food service staff, the hotel is a 5.

This Radison does what it says on the tin. A luxury hotel with beautiful rooms and a fabulous food and beverage offer. The breakfast was amazing in terms of selection and quality and what could be a nicer way to start the day overlooking the ocean. All of the staff that we encountered were friendly and efficient and welcoming. The...

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
