We stayed at the Osborne for a weeks holiday, with half-board, and it was a fantastic choice. The hotel is just off the main high street of Valletta, only 5 minutes(downhil) walk to the harbour and only 5 minutes to the bus station. Perfectly placed for all our needs. The hotel is extremely professionally run but keeps the lovely family and fun atmosphere. All the staff are very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. Our chamber maid, Rita was really friendly and our room was cleaned everyday beautifully and fresh towels everyday. The breakfasts were buffet style but with a choice to suit everyone. Dinners were also Buffet style, there was always homemade soup or cold salad starters followed by a chocie of 4 mains, always with a fish dish on it,( which was ideal for me as I don't eat red meat) then there was cheese and a selection of puddings and/or fresh fruit. Delicious! You certainly don't go hungery at the Osborne! The dining room has lovely decor, very ambient.
The island itself is best seen by using the buses and the Osborne is perfectly placed to catch them and at only 2,60€ each you can hop on and hop off of them all day-brilliant.
A fantastic week of culture, history, shopping and being looked after and would go back to the Osborne at a drop of a hat!
