It was our honeymoon in South Africa and the hotel was aware of it. The room was decorated with rose petals on arrival and had a beautiful see view. Later that evening we were surprised with a bottle of sparkling wine and a big piece of cake brought to our room. During our two night stay we had dinner in...

We stayed here for one night & it was ok. Clean and comfortable but located a bit far from bars / restaurants. Staff at hotel hit & miss. Oh and the toilet didn't flush.... Price was ok though and breakfast offered good variety

We spent 4 nights at Radisson Blu Port Elizabeth. As Club Carlson Gold Elite from Canada, we expected to have an upgraded room but after waiting up to 3 pm the first day to have our room ready, we discovered a tiny room with very basic amenities. Otherwise, it was our first visit in PE and we enjoyed the city...

We stayed one night in this hotel. The room was really good with an interesting bedroom / bathroom arrangement that gave the room a very different feel to more ordinary rooms. The view of the beach front was stunning. The staff were helpful and the restaurant was good. The free wifi gave us some challenges with logging on but we...

I have read some of the reviews below and still booked this hotel and feel I had a very different experience, I'm not sure if the other people who reviewed are just very picky. Check in was perfectly fine, no problems and maybe a 5 minute wait as everyone checking people in had customers, so no complaints there. Our room...

There is no faulting the reception staff at this hotel but that is clearly where standards stop. I should have been forewarned by the guest who came to the front desk while we were checking in and asked for her room to be re cleaned. She had just checked in. The rooms are bare and functional.
