Delighted with Cape Town and the hotel is well situated. In an ordinary room but we still had a tremendous view of Robben Island. Helpful and friendly staff, free shuttle to V&A although it's no more than 10 minute walk anyway. Good start to a SA holiday. Excellent breakfasts butt for evening meals the choice locally is overwhelming!
"Fantastic Christmas and New Year spent here"
We spent 11 nights over Xmas and New Year at The Radisson Blu hotel. The position of this hotel is the best, close enough to the waterfront to be able to walk there but far away enough to not have any noise or disturbance. Our room was a 2 bedroom suite with plenty of room, little kitchenette with tea/coffee facilities, 2 bathrooms and a large lounge area to sit and chill! The breakfast is probably one of the best, plenty of choice and the view in the morning over the bay is to die for with the dolphins playing in the water in front of you. The pool area isn't the largest but its clean and there was always somewhere to sit with the staff serving around the pool being very good. Lunch was always yummy! My only criticism is that in the evening before we went out for dinner we could not find places to sit outside to have a drink as its open to anyone and believe me, plenty come from the outside to have a drink as the bar is fab and the view is amazing so that is a bit annoying that there isn't an area just for hotel guests. Concierge was very good Heidi was fab!
We stayed - as a family - for 6 nights in January in a harbour facing business class room. It was fabulous. Lots of space for the 3 of us (2 adults and a 13 year old) and a wonderful room generally. No noise whatsoever from any direction, a bedroom that could be closed off from a large sitting area (with wet bar) and large bathroom. Regarding the hotel generally, as other guests have said in previous reviews, the view form the bar is excellent, as is breakfast, the pool area and sunloungers etc. The high spots for me were (most) of the staff. In particular praise is due to concierge team (particularly those who remembered our name - a lovely touch) and bar staff. Reception were also excellent, organising the fixing of a couple of small maintenance problems within 30 minutes. My only criticism would be housekeeping. In the 6 nights that we stayed, there were issues every day. Not enough towels (twice !), our son's bed not prepared (twice) and on one occasion, no linen so we couldn't even see to the sofa bed ourselves, the room made up and tidied mid to late afternoon with housekeeping back about 5.30 to "do turndown" and finally, one morning having put the "do not disturb" sign on the door, we were woken at 8.00 by housekeeping. When I - sleepily - answered, I got "sorry, didn't see the door sign". All in all a housekeeping team that either didn't have the right information or chose to do their own thing. Having said that, this was the first of three hotels we stayed in as part of our holiday and undoubtedly, in the opinion of the three of us, the best overall for us as a family. Resolve the housekeeping and it would truly be five star.
Stayed here for two nights. The first in a room overlooking the hotel entrance and parking which was very noisy and disturbing, although the wifi was great. Was then moved to a sea facing business class room - really great suite / room and view. Worth the extra cost. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was included and a great buffet selection, although service here was lacking. The location is awesome, close to the waterfront and Atlantic seaboard.
"Very Mixed Bag"
We stayed as part of a group - so we have our experience and what we heard from others. First, the location is quite good - near the wharf but not in all the craziness of the wharf. Excellent doormen team, especially John! They will quickly get you a taxi - they will make sure the taxi that brings you back has not ripped you off on the fare (not that it's a big problem in CT). The point is they look out for their guests. Second, the breakfast buffet and the evening bar service right on the water is wonderful. Third, the issues we had were with the concierge desk - in my experience, they are there to solve problems for you. Not so much at this hotel. We had a few blips in our trip that required help - for example, we needed to leave a package for a local to pick up. I went by the concierge desk to drop it off - they would not take it. They sent me back to the business office to leave it. Of course, the business office was busy, it took a while, so I was late for my meeting. No reason the concierge couldn't have handled that for me so that I could hop in a cab - we had about four failures like that. In the room, we were missing a phone - it was promised and never delivered. An elevator was out for a long time and stairs were not an option. A few little quirks.
