Nice Clean Hotel
Second time staying at the hotel after visiting two years ago. It's in a good inland location, close to both Qawra and Buggiba seafronts, with the main bus station a few minutes walk away. Rooms are very clean and functional, well cleaned on a daily basis. Buffet style breakfast is good quality, and very well stocked and it has a lovely bar/TV lounge next door. The only problem was out of the hotel's control, which is a lot of building going on adjacent to the hotel. They start around 6am, but surprisingly, the noise didn't seem to be much of a problem. My first floor room was classed as sea view, and it did have a nice view of the sea. Sadly, if as it appears, they are adding higher floors to the construction, I don't think it will remain a sea view room once the building work is completed.

Great staff, pleasant hotel in Qwara
Can certainly recommend hotel, staff excellent, friendly helpful & polite. Cleanliness spot on, bed linen changed everyday as well as towels, with the option to reuse & save policy. Food buffet style, breakfast included in stay with plenty choice, sausage more hotdog type but bacon good and egg type changed everyday, continental meat & cheese, salad, fresh fruit & yogurt, croissants & Nutella yummy & they have HP sauce, if you ask. Evening meal again buffet at an extra charge €10 great value. Options changed every night, soup, pasta dish & salads, plus 2 meat choices & 1 fish dish.... sometimes maybe not exactly as expected but good quality produce (lamb curry was more like a fruity stew...but lamb was delicious & tender) cake, fruit, cheese & crackers & ice cream/cream if you ask. The only negative was the lack of sunny lounge areas, unfortunately, pool was in the shade majority of day... this is maybe a positive in the very very hot summer but not so good in October. There is a very small roof terrace with a few sun loungers but not pretty. The small indoor pool (4m x 4m & 1.2m deep) on the floor 6 There is building work around but this is a Malta wide issue, demolition of buildings completed, so dust not so much a problem but 2 cranes in view. Overall, pleasant stay, great value for money, quiet location and excellent service from all members of staff

A lovely place to stay
Travelling on my own, l was a little nervous about staying here. However, the staff were very welcoming and helpful without being obtrusive. The food was excellent and plentiful all week, the room spotless and cleaned daily, and l had a very good time here.

Great stay here 😁
Great hotel. Staff very accommodating especially as one of our party was gluten free. Chefs went out of their way to provide excellent substitutes. Receptionists were very helpful with excursions and always friendly.

Back again !
This was our 5th or 6th time at this hotel so we are always welcomed like friends. We find this hotel quiet and out if the way but not too far from amenities. Simon the manager and Roslyn on reception are accommodating. James and his restaurant staff can’t do enough to make your stay enjoyable. Rooms are a good size and comfortable.
