We stayed for 5 nights. The room is standard. The bar at the first floor can be a bit noisy on weekends but is a good option for having dinner after a long day. The room is okay. The bathroom could be improved

I stayed at the Winchester and was so happy with the Newmark experience that I opted to try another one of their hotels. My stay at La Splendida was far from perfect and considering the very high rate I paid in December I was sadly disappointed. The hotel is the same building as a restaurant and possibly due to this there are various sized cockroaches that enjoy the spaces. The rooms are quite sparsely decorated for the size and are extremely basic. No block out curtains as light seeps in, sliding doors do not close properly so maintenance is required and if you're light sleeper the noise from the main road (Beach Road) can be disturbing. PROS -Management and Cleaning staff were friendly and quite helpful. Views are impressive and the hotel is a stone throw away from the promenade and many restaurants. Sadly won't visit LA Splendida again but I am trying another Newmark Hotel out. Read less

The location was phenomenal. In the heart of the city, with ocean and mountain views and right on the beautiful boardwalk. Additionally, the restaurant was delicious. But most importantly, the staff is extraordinary. We were there for three nights and it was hard to leave. On checkout the receptionist said “we want everyone to feel like family here so we can welcome them back again.” That’s the vibe they’re creating at La Splendida and it makes for a wonderful stay.

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
