We stayed using the Spring Offer in an Executive Room with access to a small dining area on the eighth floor where we had breakfast , pre-dinner drinks and afternoon tea (not used) - the room was directly outside the MD's offices.
We had not had a massage before and the free half hour back massage was a very enjoyable experience. My wife bought two other treatments that were equally pleasant.
I would recommend the daily cocktail at the Harbour View - we discovered some interesting new drinks using Maltese ingredients.
We had excellent dinners dinner in the Admiral's Landing - the buffet was lavish on the Saturday night and more than adequate on Sunday. There was an excellent guitar player on the Sunday.
We had some hassle with a wash basin that was slow to empty and a brandy missing from the mini bar but all that was sorted out to our satisfaction.
Service throughout the hotel was first class. There was always someone on the main door to welcome you and sometimes there were two people there to open the door and say "welcome".
The hotel had a wedding for 800 guests on the Saturday but you would hardly have noticed due to the grand size and style of the hotel and the very effective management of the event. The bride and groom arrived by boat to the jetty and the wedding party used the terraces around the pool for the band, bar and buffet.
We used this weekend break to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the hotel kindly provided wine and fruit. On the Monday we moved onto a villa in Mellieha for a week.
