Good 6.0
Valletta short stay
Hotel is ideally located in the centre of Valletta and easy walking distance to shops bars and other attractions. Room was superb for a family. Although perhaps the mezzanine would be a little difficult with young children. but was large with a kitchen and dining area so ample space, with TV on both floors. WiFi not great Breakfast was superb with lots variety Staff very accommodating, helpful and friendly. I would come back to this hotel

Fair 4.0
Disappointing stay
The hotel was very clean and the service as a whole was good. However, the room did not look like the one that I had booked online (it was much smaller) and the booking details suggested that there would be a sofa bed, however there was no seating area at all. The layout of the shower room was such that the vanity unit came almost up to the front of the toilet which meant that to use the toilet, you had to sit on it sideways. The shower also leaked all over the floor. I spoke to the receptionist and raised the concerns regarding the room not matching what we had booked,however he stated that the only other room they had available they were saving for a return customer. Overall, a disappointing stay - which was a shame as we were on a trip to celebrate our birthdays - which the receptionist had already noted.

Lovely hotel
Lovely hotel, very attentive staff, clean room with good air-conditioning. In a quiet street just off one of the main streets with plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. Ideal base for wandering around Valetta and only 10 min walk to bus station if you want to go further afield. Would strongly recommend

Cumberland June 2019
This is a lovely hotel. However, there is no info in the room. Nothing to say when meals are, no instructions for the coffee machine, the hot tub, bar times, most bizarre. Had problems with the air con and lights. All quickly resolved, but some staff better than others. Would stay again.

Expensive Hotel, Rubbish Breakfast
Hotel was really nice, and the whirlpool on the top floor was great. However breakfast was atrocious, food was very limited and not cooked very well. Service was rubbish, and not all food was brought out. Overall for £150 a night this is unacceptable!

Recommended luxury stay
Excellent boutique hotel in the heart of Valletta which is within easy walking distance to anywhere in the capital. It’s about 10mins walk from the main bus station & taxis. We had the room with extra sofa bed on the mezzanine level; the room was really big & had high quality fittings throughout. Infact the sofa bed was more comfortable than some other hotel beds I’ve stayed in. There’s loads of USB charging points throughout the room & you can even connect your smartphone to the TVs. All staff were really helpful & friendly, we used their airport transfer as we got in at midnight & had no problems at all checking in. Breakfast was really good with huge portions plus the rooftop is open to guests too.
