    Fabulous

    As always, the experience at the Radisson Blu Hotel was an absolute pleasure when booked through Bookings.com. Booking in, the stay as well as the booking out process simply could not be smoother and the staff are well trained and smile widely.

    Some building/maintenance on my 18th floor might have put some folks off, but I am sure any reasonable person would have realised that it is somewhat unavoidable. Probably not a negative point at all really?

    Breakfast was fantastic - a really good spread!

    Housekeeping/ Onetouch were a waste of time. We waited 45 minutes for a broken iron to arrive, a second iron was sent 10 minutes later and this stopped working after 5 minutes. The first iron had bare wires sticking out and the iron had obviously been dropped because it was physically cracked - a serious health and safety hazard in the real world of housekeeping. This was on the morning of our departure when we had a flight to catch. We missed breakfast as a result - and breakfast the previous morning had been such a highlight... :-(

    Very good

    The excellent service we received from the staff . The food was great .

    Toilet had to be flushed several times , showers blocked easily as well as the sink drains - this was very fustrating . The hairdresser that designed them should be exiled . . .

    Secure,free parking. Nice area in town. Clean,comfortable room. Good, tasty food. Nice service and very pleasant staff.

    Long wait for one lift (as the other one was being repaired) or we were asked to use the trade lift (through the kitchen). In restaurant the air conditioning was slighly too cold.

    I liked its closeness to the ocean/beach; the ocean/beach view is very beautiful and relaxing. Also the food and general service was excellent! The network was very good too!

    The weather is very cold!!

    Excellent staff. Wonderful check in. Amazing views from our room.

    Bathrooms were not cleaned properly.Shower doors need to be clean before next guest checks in. No toilet rolls but housekeeping brought it once I requested it.

    Spa

    Quality mainatenance 1. Shower drain not up to stanadard. 2. Wash water from the room above us coming down through the ceiling into our bath 3. Aircon blowing cold air. To crown it all when I requested a late check out so that I can wash at the spa , it was not well received, after insisting now told how i must make sure that i must be out at the newly requested time with no exception! By the way the only way i could get a bit of time was when I insisted that either i get a discount or a bit more time. All of this with no apology. My husband kept telling me he wants to take me to your hotel. Well, I thought I will beat him to it and take him there first! Well I am normally an accepting persong( I give people the benefit of why they gave me poor service, I am easy in restaurants, I complain less or not at all)I travelled the world, but this was my worst experience. I believe hotels room are in over supply, and everyone must do their bit not to see them closed! Please correct this esp if you know that their are service gaps that u could not resolve in advance!

    Very good

    The friendly staff and their wonderful service. The food was also excellent. The Camelot Spa is also a wonderful addition to the hotel.

    There are only two (2) lifts to service the upper floors, so a lot of time is spent waiting for an available lift. This was a massive irritation. In addition, there are no stairs to serve the upper floors, only a fire escape, so even if you want to walk, you are not given that option. The lack of lifts is a glaring design flaw! The gym is also not in keeping with the four star level of the hotel. it could be better equipped and managed.

    I have stayed at Radisson Blu on more than one occassion, and have never had any disturbances to my stay. On this occassion I had trouble with youngsters chapping on my door in the middle of the night - not once but twice and really disturbed my husband & my sleep. When I complained the staff where extreamlly apologetic and stressed that the youngsters involved had left the hotel, they also sent me a lovely bottle of champagne and snacks for my inconvenience - this was a great surprise.

    Only the view and location

    We liked the location, room and view. The rest, Very, Very poor, no service at all. Our shower was blocked. The toilet seat broken. No toiletpaper. They wanted to clean our room after 15:00 in the afternoon when we wanted to be in our room. What did they do in the morning? Oh, the day we needed to check out they were there at 8:00 to clean our room. Radisson Blu will never see us again. They do not deserve 5 stars at all.

    The hotel is well located on the shores towards the outskirts of the busy area of Port Elisabeth. The staff were extremely helpful, the room very comfortable. However we are perhaps a bit old fashioned in that we like privacy in a bathroom. In this hotel, the bath is not private at all, it is part of the bedroom albeit behind the bed! The loo and shower have frostly glass doors from the bedroom - not really private enough, in our opinion. Pleasant decking outside the bar. Pool cannot really be called a swimming pool! I enjoyed the power plates in the gym.

    The food was good but many items on the menu were not available

    The fridge in the room did not work. We complained but nobody cared. The toilet leaked onto the floor and was not hygenic. The bedside light was not working until we complained. We ordered ice because the fridge was not working but it never arrived. There was only one towel and one cup in the room when we arrived. On the second day we still only had one cup and gave up! The tissue bow on the basin was dirty. The windows were filthy.

    Servicing of rooms was inconsistent, there was always something missing or wrong. My room was cleaned at 16h00 after calling 4 times. Resturant service was poor thus we had breakfast once and lunch once. My bill was incorrect
