“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

Just returned from our 4th trip to Malta staying each time at The Waterfront, Sliema. It's in a fantastic position overlooking Sliema Creek, Marsamxett Harbour and Valletta, surrounded by restaurants, and shops. Easy access anywhere by bus or direct ferry to Valletta. The hotel itself is very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The food is scrumptious and plentiful. Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Seafront views are fantastic but the inside rooms are quieter in the summer as you can leave the doo...

We stayed in Sliema last week and ate here on a couple of evenings. The food was very good and everything was lovely and the staff were all very friendly. If we return to Sliema we will try to stay at this hotel.

Great location, we had a room overlooking the harbour, so exelent views, the room itself was a bit tired but very clean, we were b+b so cannot comment on evening meals but breakfast was ok, staff were pleasant and obliging just a pity you had to ask for some things that should be standard for 5star, like tea making in the room. All in all good value for money and great location.

After having stayed at the waterfront a number of times and looking at reviews here I felt compelled to write my own. The saying people are impossible to please really does come to mind. Ignore the bad reviews - the waterfront is a home away from home.
The location is ideal, close walk to the boat for Valetta, and where the tours depart from, and also just a short walk to the Sliema Ferries which is the main bus terminal.
Marvic on reception is always so welcoming, as are all the day receptionists. We never avail of the half board opinion as we prefer the freedom to decide each day where to dine however we regularly dine in the Regatta Restaurant. We arrive early because in any hotel I believe the food tastes best when it’s fresh out of the kitchen – however in Regatta it is regularly changed and filled up so it is never cold like some buffets. I love the joint of the day and can honestly say I have never got a bad serving. The chefs serving are very friendly and don’t bat an eyelid at my hungry husbands frequent trips up to fill his plate. Breakfast is also served in the same way in the restaurant and I can honestly say I have never had any issues. I am quite particular about how my eggs are cooked and whenever I have requested freshly fried eggs they have arrived cooked the way I asked from the kitchen with a smile from the lovely staff. There is a wide variety of food available so you won’t get bored on a two week break. Admittedly the bacon is streaky compared to what we have here in England but this is the case no matter where you visit on the continent.
I have dined in both Basilico and the downstairs café – the food has been great in both but I prefer the more formal setting upstairs.
Housekeeping deserve a special mention here too - every day the room is left spotless by the careful pleasant lady servicing it. No matter which maid we meet along the corridor we have always got a pleasant smile.
Ignore the bad reviews – the Waterfront is an excellent value hotel.

We have spent a week at the hotel, very preasant. At first we had a room with 'street view', but after complaining we got a room with a greath view (we payed 42€ extra for that change)
Food is really fine (we had breakfast and dinner at the hotel) > choice enough.
The staff is very very friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for the upper rooms with lateral sea view
