I was lucky enough to celebrate my 50th birthday with a week long stay at the excelsior grand hotel. Location is great approx. 10 min walk from the old city gate 5 mins to central bus station where buses will take you all over the island for €1.50 per day . Also close to ferry for Sliema,
There are some steps to be negotiated but its not mount Everest and hotel does run a free shuttle service at certain times of the day and electric taxis are also available at €5 into the centre.
The hotel is modern in style but not in a cold way , reception and public areas are opulent and
beautifully kept . Breakfast room is large with wonderful views out across the harbour. Great selection of everything on buffet , omelettes , eggs, waffles, pancakes etc cooked to order.
Staff in breakfast room very attentive and pleasant especially Eileen who looked after us very well.
We stayed in a terrace room on the 7th floor which was amazing . Fabulous views across
the harbour which kept us enthralled day and night. The views of the harbour are stunning from
these rooms. Our room was large and well maintained with lovely comfortable king size bed.
Bathroom lovely with large shower cubicle and separate bath . Plenty of toiletries which were
replenished frequently. Housekeeping service was excellent nice touch was bottles of water delivered to room each evening and turn down service at night.
pool area was really well kept very clean and plenty of sunbeds available even in busy august.
Pool boys very helpful with umbrellas , tables, etc . Very nice beach area as well with swimming
area in harbour. No loud music nice peaceful stress free environment.
The best thing about this hotel is its staff they were so pleasant , helpful and friendly and this
is what really made our stay so wonderful we were welcomed by duty manager Lavinia on our arrival and her wonderful welcome set the tone for our entire stay. Treat yourself to a stay here you wont regret it.
