The location is spectacular and the rooms are well appointed. Wifi is a little slow. However, avoid the rooms with the car park view - what's the point in staying here unless you can see the ocean as it is very much a business hotel that could be anywhere in the world if it wasn't for the view. And the service needs to be sharpened up - frustratingly slow check in and check out for example and zero recognition from membership of the chain's loyalty scheme
"view from heaven, music from hell"
We work near the Radisson and decided to see the newly completed refurb followed by evening drinks on the deck. The views of the water, yacht harbour, city and Table Mountain are as good as anyone could wish for. We walked out onto pier and drank in the beauty before returning to a table for a relaxing G&T. We immediately noticed the thumping bass streaming out of the wall mounted speaker. We couldn't discern any music at all, just a continuous thump, thump thump. The waiter said he was powerless to act. We decided to leave as the ambiance was ruined and i mentioned the awful noise to one of the hotel receptionists. Radisson have spent millions on a decent refurb, yet leave a $5 speaker in place combined with 'musick' probably suited to a drug den.
Lovely hotel and staff great location for some one not wanting to be right in the central tourist area but able to walk there. Could do with more drawer space for holiday makers like me with 2 full cases and have suggested the free shuttle to waterfront is more frequent after dark as a few undesirables appear.
"Launch of REFURBISHED fucntion/conference facilities."
The conference rooms were previously quite outdated with dark wooden panelling on the walls and no natural light. The dividing walls have now been removed and replaced with concertina style walls which can be removed if required. The 2 largish rooms also now open out onto a function area facing the harbour/ocean, to become one large area accommodating a large group for dinner functions and/or conferencing. The carpets have been replaced with a combination of blues ( in keeping with the nautical feel ) . A boardroom with large windows ( natural light ) has been created which has a built in data projector and board room table.. Very exciting !
"Great location, good hotel now that the construction is finished"
I stayed here in September which seemed to coincide with the final push to finish a serious renovation project of the lower floor of the hotel. While this does happen in many properties and is generally a sign of a good hotel, I do wish I had been told in advance as opposed to woken up to the sound of jackhammers after 24hrs in transit and terrible jet-lag. However, my complaint was handled as professionally and crisply as possible and I was bundled off to a sea facing suite on the other side of the hotel. This incident says all you need to know about how well run and managed this property is. The restaurant is good, not excellent, for a city with the quality of dining that Cape Town offers and the gym could be bigger. But it is well run, clean, professional, friendly and in a stunning setting. As someone who spends entirely too much of my life in hotels that seem to aspire to mediocrity on so many levels, this is reason enough to return.
