A really good hotel, the staff are really helpful & friendly, food is good and the rooms are spacious & comfortable. Natalia in the restaurant is lovely & works incredibly hard to make sure you have everything you need. We had a brilliant holiday & it's a really good base to discover Malta.

Nice hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Lovely pool at the roof with a nice bar with cheap tasty drinks. Paid extra for seaview but wasnt quite as expected, could see the water but mostly the traffic. Room was nice but smelled funky and there was a fat old TV.

The staff are friendly, the hotel is clean and the food is good. We had a room with a balcony looking over the harbour to Valletta on the 5th floor. Quite noisy with a main road...

The hotel is a bit tired, bathrooms desperately need updating, as does the bedding and I never thought I would say this about a hotel but the tv in the room must be at least 20 years old. I don't think the hotel deserves a 4 star stays but it's not far away. In saying all of the above I...
