My recent stay
It was a very enjoyable stay. The rooms were basic but included a shower and of course had a fantastic view across the Grand Harbour. Reception was courteous and efficient. Continental buffet breakfast was more than reasonable and of good quality and variety. I would recommend the hotel to future visitors for excellent value for money.

Original room given not fit for purpose
Asked for a room change after my second night, which staff were able to quickly arrange for me. New room much quieter, hair dryer worked, as did plug in sink, better signal on TV and no green security light on in room all night. Would have given much higher overall score if in that room from outset.

Good 6.0
Great location but a very tired looking hotel with the most uncomfortable beds ever and a shower room that was no more than a cupboard. I tried to change my booking so that I could move across to the British Suites which is part of the same hotel complex but nicer and was refused.

Very good 8.0
Brilliant short break in Valletta. The hotel was very quaintand comfortable. The rooms were clean and we had a lovely view over the harbour. The staff were so friendly and helpful, Check in was very efficient as it was 11pm at night before we got to our hotel. Overall a very beautiful island with friendly people and a very good hotel.
Pauline, gb3 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Excessive noise with one night the disturbance continuing until 2.00am. The room was adjacent to the toilet for the restaurant with commensurate noise problems

Very good 8.0
Excellent location, fantastic view, staff couldn't have been more helpful, spotlessly clean. The decor in the room was a little tired but the good points outweighed that!! All in all excellent.

Exceptional 10.0
Excellent location
We stayed for 1 week. The hotel is only small so it great as its not too busy like the bigger hotels. The location in Valletta is great as its just a short walk to the centre. The views over the Grand Harbour are amazing from the hotel and the public ferry to the 3 cities is just around the corner and only take 5minutes to get across. The room was spacious with 4 single beds, shower room, TV etc. the room decor was maybe a bit dated but the balcony overlooks the Grand !! The only thing the room needed was a kettle as we like a cup of tea ! The restaurant is really nice, the staff lovely and helpful. the wifi was excellent and free I would definitely go back to this hotel again.
