Arriving at the sea view for the 4th time it was nice to find i had been allocated the same room as 2 years ago and the years before that. The staff are always friendly and can't do enough for you and what the hotel lacks in mod cons is more than made up for by the immediate feel of comfyness and relaxation.

I have a single room always feel safe staying here, and in the surrounding areas.

I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Malta!

Room Tip: During the summer the entertainment is by the pool so if you are one for early nights its best to bo...

We returned to The Sea View Hotel for the third time in 18 months for a 3 week stay on half board. It was nice on arrival to see familiar faces on Reception, the Bar and Restaurant from previous visits. You get what you pay for here, we paid for a Sea View room and we got a Sea View room, we paid for Half Board and we got Half Board. Yes the rooms could do with a coat of paint, but you are not buying the room and if you are on holiday how much time do you actually spend in the room. Shower and sleep. The Half Board is more than adequate for what you pay. £1250 for a 3 week half board stay. The Hotel is very central for everything and the sea front views fantastic. With views over St Paul's Bay and Gozo in the distance. When you book in here you need to remember it is 3 stars. As with most Hotels in Malta you need to either bring a Kettle with you or hire one on arrival. The Pool and Pool area are clean and tidy and enough sun beds to go around. Just enjoy yourself, you are on Holiday, don't spend the time looking for every small little thing you can find wrong. We plan to return again next May for a 4 week stay.

Room Tip: Pay for the Sea View it's worth the extra.

We knew this was a budget hotel but it was horrible, dingy, scruffy and with only one receptionist, Anna, who was a pleasure to deal with. We booked a sea view room which helped, and there was entertainment in the bar every evening. Apart from that it is hard to find a positive thing to say. There were lots of small marble steps throughout the hotel, some impossibly steep, others just small enough to trip you up, even in our box of a bathroom so you need to be agile! The bathroom along with all other areas needed a damn good clean. Our room did not even have a wardrobe, just a recess with hangers. There was no hairdryer or fan as advertised.Breakfast was ok but very limited, if the usual waitress was missing it was chaos. After a week we decided to move elsewhere, when we informed reception the woman seemed neither surprised or interested as to why. If you are prone to depression avoid at all costs!

Room Tip: Can't imagine

My husband and i have been to malta many times, and stayed at various hotels, we booked the seaview as we knew someone who had stayed there many times, i must say i was very dissapointed with the first room, we had booked pool view and ended up at the back with very litlle to look at, thanks to Sandra on reception we were moved the next day to a better room and if i could have the same room i would'nt hesitate to return. breakfast was very good. Its outdated but with a little tlc it could be a very nice place as its location has everything going for it. met some really nice people and the staff are very friendly.

We went to this hotel in February of this year as it was a retirement present from my husband.
We have friends who have stayed at this hotel and they spoke very highly of it, so I was looking forward to going.
When we arrived at the hotel, we were dropped off by the driver at the door to the bar and not the hotel entrance. we had to walk through the bar, through the restaurant, into a lift and go up one floor.
Once we got into the room,I can't say that I was impressed. There were 2 single beds in, (no problem with that), a heater to plug in if the rooms got cold (which they did on a night time) a table in the corner, and a wardrobe in the other corner. As you enter the room, if you turned left, you went up a single step into the bathroom which contained a bath with an overhead shower, a basin and the toilet, (all which had seen better days). Never mind, you only sleep there. Went to open the balcony door, only for it nearly to come out of the runners. Had to call the receptionist to come and put it right. The balcony, you could not sit on as the 2 chairs and table filled the balcony and there was no spare room for a person to get on it.
After a few days, I went down to the receptionist and asked her how often the bed lined should be changed and she said every other day. I informed her that ours hadn't been changed once and we had been there 7 days already. I will admit, the bedding got changed straight away, but then again, only another once before we went home.
I was not impressed with the cleaning of the room as I could tell when the room had not been cleaned as sometimes the marks, hairs in the sink of the previous day were still there the next day after it was supposed to have been cleaned.
I cannot fault the food at the hotel. The breakfasts were out of this world and you could have anything you wanted and for your evening meal you could choose from 3 starters, 3 main courses and 3 desserts. The food was excellent as were the staff who waited on you for your breakfast and evening meal.
The hotel itself needs updating from top to bottom and certainly needs decorating.
For all of the above, if the hotel smartened itself up I would still go and stay there again but there has to be a vast improvement.

Recently returned from four week stay.Would reiterate much of earlier comment. Hotel staff are excellent,rooms are adequate if in need of update & food quite good.Altogether good value & it is obvious why so many of the visitors return year after year.

Room Tip: Might be some road noise at front?
