This was our first time in Malta I travelled with a friend. We found the Hotel great the only fault was there were no coffee making facilities in the room, however, we were prepared and took a travel kettle it was easy to get coffee milk etc from a nearby shop. There was some noise from the road but we had expected this and it was ok.
We used the tour buses to visit both the North and South of the island and this gave us a free harbour tour which was excellent. We also used the local buses to visit Valetta and St Juliens, we were sad to hear that from next year these truly ancient vehicles will be taken off the road and the service taken over by Arriva. The local people were very friendly and all spoke English, goods in the shops were expensive in comparison to UK in M&S skirts and trousers for instance cost approx 50% more. This must be hard for local working people.
In Valetta we visited the Sunday morning market we also went to the Sunday Market in Marsaxlok in the South of the island.
In all we had a great time.More
