An amazing hotel right next to the sea! Everything about this hotel was splendid.

An amazing hotel right next to the sea! Everything about this hotel was splendid. Amazing location (the hop on/off bus has a stop right in-front of the entrance), fabulous staff, and clean, spacious rooms. We (a group of 7) were visiting South Africa using a travel deal through Exoticca. All of our hotels and transfers were arranged through the company, so we didn’t know anything about the hotel before we arrived. Unfortunately, upon our arrival, we found out that the company had cancelled our reservations that morning, and had not confirmed the new reservations at a neighboring hotel (which 6 others from the tour group were staying at). We also did not receive any information that this had happened. Luckily, Nelson from La Splendida worked his magic and helped us regain our reservations at no extra charge. He was a life saver, and helped take away the unwanted stress. Throughout our stay, he made sure to check in with us to help out in anything we needed, such as figuring out how to get covid testing. The bar and restaurant was also amazing. Privilege took amazing care of us, and made the best drinks. Even if you do not stay at the hotel, I strongly suggest you pop in for dinner and drinks just to experience the atmosphere and smiling faces. We will definitely stay again whenever we come back to Cape Town! Read less

We stayed at La Splendida for a night on a week-long trip to the Cape. The location is fantastic, with a gorgeous view of the promenade and a great restaurant and bar downstairs. The rooms are great value for money - basic, and didn't include breakfast, but it was just what we needed, as we had a comfortable bed to sleep in, a lovely view and tea and coffee making facilities. Staff were great at ensuring hygiene protocols were taken during check in, even sanitising the gate remote and room key in front of us. Unfortunately, we did have some negative experiences. The gate for the very limited secure parking kept being left open (either fully or enough for people to walk through), and every time we popped back to the car this was the case. Not ideal when you may have to leave certain items in your car, and clearly not 'secure'. We also had to walk past dustbins and staff smoking in this car park, to get into the hotel. Our room seemed perfectly clean, however not so much in the bathroom - in the shower, there was a used bar of soap and an open and used tube of shower gel on the ledge in the shower. This made us wonder if perhaps the bathroom hadn't even been serviced before we arrived, as they were in full sight, not hidden. Otherwise, we had a lovely stay. Read less

We stayed in one of the sea facing rooms. Brilliant view. Slightly busy early evening but lovely later in the evening. Nice and clean with brilliant WiFi. Fantastic staff, friendly and efficient. The bath towels was probably the only negative. The restaurant was really good. Overall great experience.
