The area of St Julian's is full of restaurants and within walking distance of many clubs. This could have been a very noisy area, but in fact, this hotel is very quiet - unless you happen to be in the rooms close to the back corner near a basement club of an adjacent hotel. Unfortunately, the bass of the live bands can be heard into the second floor - which happened on a Friday and Saturday night. When we asked to be moved (at about 11.00pm, on a Saturday night), Peter behind reception very quickly sorted a room for us for that night (Thank you Peter) and also arranged for us to move rooms before the following weekend, as we had requested.
This hotel only offers B&B, but has it's own small restaurant for the evenings, plus there were about 8 restaurants in the street, so it took could have taken over a week before we had to go further afield.
The hotel is clean, stylish and the 3 rooms we ended up using were all well appointed -
huge beds and some of the best showers we've used.
The rooftop pool was gorgeous, towels and cushions provided, though often it was too windy to be able to put up the parasols.
If we had any minor criticisms it would be that the almost continuous ambience music in the reception and pool bar area did get irritating, although staff did turn this off when asked (hopefully not causing any problems for them with their managers - they weren't sure). Quiet can be good!
Also, the rooms that are not studios (which are really good), could do with a kettle for tea/coffee making.
That said - we would go back in a heartbeat. And this was primarily because the staff were just so good, so helpful, fun and good-natured.
So a big thank you to Peter, Donat, Karlis and Greg as well as Gundegar, reception girl with broken wrist whose name we didn't get, trainee girl on reception and security Joe.
