We were a little apprehensive about the Splendid Hotel as we had read some poor reviews on tripadvisor. However, these concerns were completely unfounded. We were allocated a room on the second floor with a large balcony (room 224). The room was very tastefully decorated and had tea and coffee facilities, iron and ironing board, trouser press and a safe as standard as it was a deluxe room. The bathroom was huge with his and hers basins, a bidet and a jacuzzi bath and shower and complimentary toiletries.
We had breakfast each day in the fabulous rooftop restaurant with wonderful panoramic views, there was a good choice and all was regularly replenished. The french bread was to die for! We only ate in the restaurant on our first night but we did choose dishes from the a la carte menu as the main course on the set menu did not appeal to us, this did mean that it was quite expensive but the food was superb. The set menu did look very appetizing on other nights but we preferred to explore and eat out at the many other restaurants in the old town and port area.
The restaurant / cleaning / reception staff were very obliging and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is located a couple of streets away from the sea and wonderful promenade. Its location was ideal for us as we could walk into the old town or port each evening for dinner and walk back afterwards which was a really nice situation. We did not use the swimming pool or roof top terraces as we had our own balcony but did have a look and the pool looked very inviting even though it was quite small.
The bar area of the hotel was being refurbished whilst we were there but as we were out every evening this did not affect us at all.
It is an old hotel but with lots of character and I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to others, they really made us feel welcome and looked after us extremely well.
