“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Having been in Sliema last year I saw the Waterfront Hotel and decided wanted to stay there this year. I made a good choice. Lovely big room (inner one so no sea views but nice and quiet away from the main road), comfortable bed, good bathroom and immaculately clean. The buffet's (breakfast/dinner) very good choice, ate way too much! Use the bus system which is amazing value 1.50 euro for a day ticket or hop onto the Sliema/Valetta ferry (2.80 e return). Excellent seafood restaurant just where the ferry lands, Cockney's. A lot of the restaurants in both Sliema & Valetta are just catering to the tourist market everything ..& chips (liver & bacon with mash, etc) difficult to find good local food outlets. Cockney's or Ta'Kris in Sliema are good. I will be returning to Malta and definitely back to the Waterfront Hotel.

Room Tip: If available try for a front or side sea view room.

i enjoyed my stay in the hotel! food was really good & hotel was positioned on the sea front of sliema.
my room was clean but was a centre room & i didnt have all the wonderfull views of seafront but never the less was fine.
didnt find many decent resteraunts around sliema except for 2 star fast food which were dirty
i left my wallet in hotel room safe & it was returned to me in a very professional manner & was fully appreciated

Room Tip: go for full or side seaview

Good quality hotel with great food. Sea view rooms have a lovely aspect. There is road noise but that's the norm for sea front in Siliema. We loved our stay, got a great deal with Thomson. Have tried to go back but it's been too expensive. Would choose this hotel again.

Visited Malta for the second time and following a wonderful stay at the Waterfront before decided to stay here again. We were not disappointed.
It was nice to meet the same staff again as it make us fell home, all staff throughout the hotel were very friendly and helpful. Our room on the 7th floor has fabulous views across to Valletta and was very quiet. It was very comfortable and cleaned to the highest standards each day, we wish we could have stayed more :)
We ate in the Regatta Restaurant on half board and the Star Cafe for some afternoon snack. Again the food and service provided were excellent. We also enjoyed the Lobby Bar - Sandro cocktails

Only downsides where our beds which were rather uncomfortable and tv, but Would definitely go again.

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 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
