Just returned from a wonderful 3 night stay - everyone in our party of 6, ranging in age from 7 to 73 - loved the hotel, as much as the attractive city on our doorstep. The children made full use of the inside and outside pools, both of which were far larger than we expected. The staff were all charming,...

We spent 6 days here in October and were very well looked after. The staff are a delight and the facilities very good. The food is excellent too with lots of choice. The hotel is extremely well located for Valetta, ferries and the bus station - an easy walk.

On arrival the porter was very friendly and guided us to reception. The room was not ready (3pm) yet so we used the time to ask for top...

I have been to Malta a number of times in the past and love the island and it's people. I had booked into the hotel for 6 nights with my girlfriend as she had never been and the location was perfect for where we wanted to visit. However this hotel does not come close to the 5 stars it claims...

Everyday, we had our morning newspaper, our free of charge bottles of metal water, and our evening chocolates which we adored. Room was cleaned...
