Travellers' Choice
Take in views of the beautiful waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the private marina from the Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront in Cape Town. This seaside hotel is close to the city center, as well as all the big cultural offerings. The striking ocean views set the stage for a memorable stay in Cape Town. Wake to the sound of gentle waves breaking on the shore before embarking on a day of exploration. Take our complimentary shuttle bus to and from the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront - a popular shopping, dining and entertainment area. Other nearby attractions include Table Mountain and Robben Island, which is home to one of the city's most visited museums.

Hotel's Favourite
It was my first time in Cape Town and my first time at a Radisson Blu property and it was great. Everyone I encountered was friendly and eager to assist and the property itself is very well located with easy access to the waterfront area by a hotel shuttle. The view from the hotel’s restaurant is amazing and if you are lucky you will get to see an otter flapping about. I want to give special thanks to Zoe who checked me in, Lolo who does amazing omelets, Joel from the Spa and Yusuf from concierge. Would stay again 100% and will recommend.

I went back to CT after a 15 year absence. The hotel is world class and the staff go above and beyond… the hospitality and customer care world could learn a lot from this hotel and team. All the staff were amazingly helpful and kind especially but not limited to Eloise, Desmond, David, Lunda (I wish I could remember everyone’s names because everyone was so wonderful, professional and caring). My daughter is 4 and they had the most amazing kids club all day with a lovely school teacher. The hotel room was wonderful and spacious, the views beautiful, the breakfasts scrumptious and a bit overwhelming, the panio player, cheese and wine pre-dinner drinks amazing, the rides to the v&a convenient… all in all great value and an even better experience.
