We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Solana Hotel in Mellieha. The hotel is situated in the middle of a rustic town with excellent transport links to the major attractions the island has to offer.
On arrival the modest yet very clean reception area is welcoming as are the staff. The large number of seats available were mainly occupied with older visitors enjoying the free wifi the hotel offers in the lounge while the large TV had Eurosport on to accomodate some of the disgruntle husbands.
We requested a room high up in the hotel with a view away from the road and we were given a room on the ground floor with a view away from the road. Although not perfect, the room was large and comfortable with a quaint little kitchen hidden in the cupboard. If you look at other peoples pics you will see what I mean.
The room was cleaned almost daily and fresh towels provided when needed. As well as the kitchen we had tea and coffee making facilities and plenty of storage space for clothes as well as a small balcony for drying. The ensuite was, again, large and it had a powerful shower which was great.
As we booked self catering we only tried the hotel food once and that was enough. It wasn't bad, but with the wide array of restaurants and eateries Mellieha has to offer I would say you are better off exploring (Bouquet Garni was exceptional and only a small walk away).
The hotel offers a Spa and gym facility however we did not use these I can recommend the indoor heated pool and the jacuzzi which were rarely busy. As it was out of season and not the best weather the rooftop pool was always quiet but well maintained.
The whole stay was pleasant and there was very little to complain about at all. I would recommend a stay at the hotel and if you hear a cheeky Essex accent just go and say hello to Charlotte on the bar, she is welcoming and friendly and takes the time to speak to everyone which is an excellent quality in a member of customer service staff.
