12 December 2012 to 09 January 2013 - 28 Night Stay.
I've stayed at this Hotel approximately six or seven times over the past 10 years, with visits of 7/10/21 to 28 night stays booked via Chevron Air Holidays and Malta Direct.
The location of this Hotel is the best in Malta.
However, I feel the Hotel Management need to 'step up'.
The Hotel through the years has been undergoing continuous 'refurbishment'.
To me, as an 'ex-hotelier' I fail to understand why the job's not completed years down the line.
For the stay I was allocated Room 8113.
As the Hotel was quiet, there were few rooms occupied on this floor when I arrived.
The Hotel was installing a 'new lift' and the 8th Floor Lobby was always in need of a good clean.
Room 8113 is a great location in the building with marvellous 'sea views'.
I'd stayed in this room on previous visits, the bathroom had been 'upgraded' but the 'toilet flush' still leaked.
However the room was in need of a good clean too.
The 9th Floor was undergoing refurbishment and my balcony was on a daily basis littered with debris from 9113.
However I must say 'Housekeeping' did clean my room and balcony when I insisted they check my room. They offered to move me to another room but I declined as I'd already unpacked and settled in.
Through the years on visits to Malta I'd stayed at the Diplomat and Park Hotel's.
I moved to the 'Preluna' for better 'food'.
Sadly, in my opinion the 'standard and quality of food' has deteriorated.
I know 'Hotel Management' put huge demands on 'Head Chefs' during periods of 'austerity' and this certainly appears to have been the case during my visit. I felt the 'cold buffet' & general 'quality of food' was not as in previous years.
However, prior to my visit I'd requested 'Room Service' on Xmas Eve and this was delivered.
In fact, the 'cold salad' requested was 'delicious but on reflection I'd paid a Christmas Supplement of £62 and New Year Supplement of £78 so it should have been good.
A small gripe, not condiments on tray.
On a lighter note...............
The Amadeus Choir perform annually at this hotel and they are spectacular.
I'll return to Malta, it's wonderful,but 'sadly' I'm looking for a new hotel.
