“Great location for the hub of Malta”
Reviewed 28 February 2014 via mobile

We stayed from 04/02/14 for 2 weeks. A very welcoming hotel and our special thankyou goes to Marvic Agius on the front desk. Definately a 4star, by Malta ratings. OK the breakfast menu didnt change but had so much choice for all appetites. Fabulous coffee machine- choose ur own type.:-). All self service - i.e. Get what YOU want
Evening meal: Some roast meats lacked flavour but the fish was great and fantastic veiws from the restuarant where breakfast is served too.
Desserts:
Omg. So much to choose n great ice cream. Room: Very clean and beds very comfortable. Pitty the sheets were too small, but I didnt have to make it next day! Pool area: Great veiws n the ability to be able to use it in their winter season was a very pleasant surprise. Transport: So many buses to go to Valleta at least every 10mins ( avoid peak times!) n then get a bus to anywhere on the island. A great bus infrastructure. Last year we hired a car n spent more time looking for road signs! Buy a 7day bus ticket for unlimited travel (6.5 euros). Also a Heritage Malta multipass is great value for £ if ur into the history of Malta. If ur going out for a picnic take a baguette from the Lotus Crown- turn right out of the hotel opposite the bus stop. Best we have ever had. Turn left to Nik Naks for owt else - next door.
Well definately go back.

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple

Stayed in a 4th floor seaview room between Christmas and New Year.
Room excellent, Reception excellent, Food excellent, Lobby Bar service not so good.
But probably one of the best locations and hotels in Malta

We enjoyed our stay at the waterfront Hotel. Room was lovely and clean, all staff were very helpful and friendly, wide variety of choice at breakfast. Excellent location,will definitely go back soon. Good value for money we stayed bed and breakfast. Drinks and snacks very reasonable. The Italian restaurant was lovely we ate there about 3 times.

Very good price in november. Very Good breakfast, quite and large room, restaurant with beautiful bay view. A little bit far from the city center, but it is possible to go by bus or by boat. Good service.

We have just returned from a week at the Waterfront Hotel. The first thing to say is that it is in a a wonderful location on the Sliema promenade. Ideal for the tour buses and the normal buses which run along the front. The hotel reception area and bar are both very nice as are the rooms. Ours was at the front so overlooked the harbour. Nice balcony and a great view. The lady that cleaned the room was very attentive and pleasant although she did look a bit like Peter Kay so I expected her to start singing "Is this the way to Amarillo" any minute. The staff in the restaurant are very friendly and helpful although they are understaffed at times. One of the barmen had a bit of an attitude though. The food was OK but not great. I would rate it as just about average. The scrambled eggs at breakfast were really poor and the coffee machine delivered very small and pretty cold cups of the liquid. I would rate the hotel higher than the food and would have liked to give a four star overall but the food held that back. Having said that we had a great time and I would probably go back but on B&B terms only. There are loads of places to eat at so no problem with that. For the traveller, a bus ticket costs £1.20 for a full day on as many buses as you want to go on. Fantastic service even if the queuing system is somewhat ad hoc. Fabulous island that is easy to get around and the people are great.

Room Tip: Ask for a seaview room.

We visited this hotel in November 2012 for a seven day holiday. Our room was lovely and bright also very clean overlooking the bay. the hotel is in a great location for shops, restaurants and bars also close to local transport. the buffet breakfast was adequate only annoying thing was the coffee machine and small cups, we ended up buying coffee mugs down the town to take back to the breakfast room so we did not have to keep getting up for refills. The hotel entertainment was dire, alright if you wanted to be in a nursing home situation, but there is plenty of night life down the town.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the bay are the best.

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...
