The decor and statutes made this a really beautiful Hotel. Our room was very comfortable and had everything you would expect from a 5 star Hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble.
The food at the restaurant was excellent both in choice and quality and the staff were very friendly. I must say that the breakfasts were out of this world with all you could wish and with sparkling wine. In fact on first morning I was a Hobbit, having a deliful breakfast with my wife and a 2nd breakfast with my son. The view from the dining room was great with views over the harbour. Sunbathing by the pool was really enjoyable watching all the various types of boats going up and down the harbour. Huge Yaughts were moored accross the harbour. The only downside was I felt that the pool could have been a bit warmer. The Hotel was a short uphill walk to Valletta town centre the the Castle of the Knights of St. John and the Cathedral. The Taxi company at the Hotel were excellent with good drivers who were also excellent tour guides. As we like to try local Restaurants to gain the local flavour of food we were very disspointed with 2 Restaurants that had been recommended and at one was the worst meal we had ever been served in many years of travelling and on various continents. The food was so bad we could not eat it. We wondered why we bothered as the Excelsior offered great choice and served delicious food. I would highly recommend the Excelsior which made our stay in Malta a delightful experience despite 2 duff Local Restaurants.
