Although Id stayed at another more prestigious hotel in Sliema some 5 years earlier, I must say the Plevna knocked spots off the other (Waterfront )for friendliness and a home from home stay. And, the guests actually talked to each other here!!!!
I read the reviews AFTER I booked an all inclusive with no single supplement on rooms (3) I did wonder why some visitor said Charles made the hotel- it concerned me as I thought oh dear if its one person that makes this Ive made a wrong choice , especially as I was catering for my mum and mum-in-law for the stay. I couldnt have been more wrong as when we came into the hotel we were met with a cheerful face from the receptionist who couldnt do enough for us,explained the layout of the hotel and that we had just arrived in time for dinner. Great for us as wed spent most of the day in cars or the airport/flying.
My mum is difficult to cater for at 75 with her very plain eating. Not a problem, Chef sorted something out that very night not that he needed to as there was certainly plenty to choose from at the buffet! I cant imagine anyone going hungry ,I as a vegetarian certainly didnt, there was plenty for me to have at any meal time.
Ok so the decor was a bit tired, but so is the decor in my own home we cant all redo them every year to keep in with the latest trend. It was however clean,tidy, with all rooms being cleaned daily and great value for money, especially if you go all inclusive!
The Hotel is situated on a side street with a bit of a hill, not great for older less able folk but close to the main road and only minutes away from the town centre and the bus stops etc. It also has WiFi or if you havent brought your own you can purchase at very little cost, time on the 2 computers, great for sending the family a "We arrived safely" message.
My room was clean,tidy no frills but always with lots of HOT water at whatever time you needed it. A kettle,tea,coffee, a FRIDGE!! I was certainly pleased to see that. Air conditioning that worked and plenty of wardrobe/cupboard space. A safe was available for a small charge. Stamps available form the reception desk and loads of left books to chose from should you need one!!!
The staff were just lovely from the youngsters at breakfast whom all said good morning to you to Marianna who was in charge at breakfast, to the youngsters tending the bar and of course Joe ( the main barman)who when you get a smile are dazzled as its radiant! Now, as I said to Charles, before we left, what would I write about him.....the reviewer before me was spot on, he did make the stay... he was interested in what you had done that day,had we enough to eat,more wine/drink with your meal is there anything else I can do for you, could you tell him what you thought of the hotel to make our stay better? He was such a warm,generous,lovely man, it was like having a friend to look forward to seeing each mealtime. On the last morning it was my birthday and I even had him singing Happy Birthday to me at the juice machine!
A great value,clean,unpretentious,friendly hotel that I would recommend to even my posher friends as a welcoming home from home hotel.
Charles and staff keep up the good work we hope to visit again in the future!!
