Stayed here for four nights as part of a Saga tour. Conveniently located on the sea front between Silima and St Julian's Bay. The hotel has little in terms of Curb Appeal but inside it is pleasant and relaxing. All the staff are friendly and very helpful. We stayed in room 611 which was spacious, clean and reasonably modern. Frequent...

We stayed 7 nights half board over Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel situation couldn't have been better, very central for visiting most areas that we wanted to see with easy bus access to most places. The selection of food was excellent and the spread that was put on over Christmas was amazing - the staff were very friendly...

Seafront just outside, good promenade walks in both directions (St Julians turn left, Valletta harbour turn right), regular bus services both ways outside, inside- spacious rooms with large bathroom & comfortable beds, very good, bright restaurant with good choice...

We were booked on half board basis, and the...

We stayed here for a week at the end of November. This was our first visit to Malta and we were unsure of the best location. It turns out we made a good choice in this hotel and in Sliema for home base. This hotel was a very reasonable price and an excellent location in that it was on a...

Nice seafront hotel. Great service and friendly staff. Stayed here on a business trip in November. The hotel is a bit dated but clean and comfortable. Nice location situated on the sea front close to shops and restaurants.

Love this hotel! It's old but has a charm personified by it's wonderful staff. It's also spotlessly clean, has little extras like the basket of apples on Reception everyday for the guests to help themselves. The breakfast is high quality, large variety, charming, friendly, efficient staff who even though busy always have a ready smile. Dinner can be hit and...
