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.

What we Liked · Value for Money and location is great. Front office staff are great and very friendly. Room is basic but nice and just what you need. Small hotel and clean What we Disliked · Restaurant staff attitude is appalling.. on our departure morning we asked for milk some milk to take up to our room for our coffee to the front desk staff, who where lovely. The front desk staff then went over to the restaurant staff to get the milk.. they were treated appealingly for for fulling a guest request. When we received our milk, I said thank you to the restaurant staff, I did not even get an acknowledgment.. This is shocking as he got the milk from the Coffee Machine. Restaurant staff needs some attitude adjustment towards hotel guests Read less

My husband and I spent 4 nights at La Splendida at the beginning of our visit to South Africa. This charming little hotel is a big part of why I would love to return to Cape Town. Every staff member was welcoming and helpful. Our room was simply furnished but spotless and comfortable. The included breakfast was just right. The location, across from the Green Point Lighthouse and overlooking the sea, was absolutely delightful. We explored the city and surrounding areas (Winelands tour, highly recommend) and were so happy to return to Splendida at the end of each day. Truly a gem. Read less
