    • 10.0.Exceptional

      We had a great trip to Malta and it was made extra special by staying in the Waterfront. The staff are helpful and kind from check in to check out. The breakfast is a buffet which even in COVID times has a wide selection to please everyone. The room we stayed in was on the tenth floor with an amazing view of the harbour and Valletta which was stunning. Plus, the bed was HUGE! It has obviously been recently renovated and the bathroom with walk-in shower was particularly stylish. I wasn’t a fan of sliema personally, but it is a great base location to explore the rest of malta. The ferry over to Valletta is a 5 minute walk away and is free after 6pm, not to mention it’s a gorgeous ride. If we were to return to malta we’d definitely stay here again!

      Worth staying, ideal location for food and travel.

      Great location. Room good size. Nice balcony. Decent breakfast. Issue was the bathroom. Good size but smelled of drainage. Door was locked and only 2 nights so wasn’t worth bothering to change. Bed was comfortable. Uk plugs can be used. Service was very pleasant, reception and requests all catered for.
