Just returned from a 10 day holiday at the Palace Hotel Sliema. We had a fabulous holiday and was sorry to come home. Malta is a fabulous island so much to see and do, easy and cheap to get around and you will not meet nicer, friendly people than the Maltese people. Our base was the 5* Palace which we loved its ideally placed just being a 5 min walk from the seafront which is lovely to walk and has lots of bars and restaurants. The hotel is also a short walk from the the harbour front where you can get all the boat trips and also catch the fantastic little ferry which takes you to Valletta for only 1.5 euros each. You can also get buses on the front to anywhere on the island and they are also very cheap. We could not fault the hotel the room we had which was a de-luxe room on the 2nd floor was spotless and spacious with an extremely large bed and a lovely balcony which over looked the back of the hotel and we could also see the sea, being at the back no problems with the Church Bells as well. We went on a half board basis and found the food to be of a very high standard. The breakfasts where varied and all you could want and lovely Joe came around topping you up with coffee or tea all the time. Dinner was superb we enjoyed every meal we had. All the food was fresh and well cooked and good selection, we really enjoyed the fish that was served and all the fresh salads. We also ate in the TempAsian restaurant on the 9th floor which was first class. What makes this hotel though is the staff, all so friendly and could not do enough for you and all knew you after a couple of days. Thomas was lovely on front of house, Little Salema in the restaurant (sorry if I have spelt your name wrong) who looked after us so much, David and Joe in the Talk of the Town Bar and our lovely cleaner Georgia. We also used the Penny Black Bar in the sister hotel which you can walk to via the first floor. Both Joe and Martin in the bar looked after us well. Joe makes the best Pimms in Malta.
We hired a car via the hotel which was good value we had this for two days and visited the North of the Island, Mosta, Midina and Dinkley Cliffs. All well recommended to go, it was a bit hairy though trying to navigate back to the hotel through Sliema and all the one way streets but we made it in the end.
If you like to walk there are lots of lovely walks, you can walk along the seafront to St Julians and Paceville which is beautiful have a nice lunch and then bus back, also right next to the hotel is a small bakery where you can get pea or ricotta cheese pasties for lunch which are to die for. We will definitely be back, we hardly had time to take advantage of the roof top pool so that will be for next time.
As a closing note - Dorianne the guest relations manager was a such a gracious and lovely lady, every time she was on duty she came to find us and to make sure we had all we required and a chat and also arranged for a complimentary birthday cake and wine for my husband to be served in our room. 5* all the way for us
