Not the best of places to stay, We ordered a one bedroom room and they gave us key to room 506 which turned out to be a grotty little studio room with no balcony. When we complained, the gave us the key to room 306 which was a great improvement. Having said that, the room was looked after quite well... More

Toilet and fan are not working properly in room. At least the main bus terminal is 5 minutes away (Bugibba Bay). So Valletta is 1 hour away, Golden Bay is 30 minutes. The breakfast was good, not full English breakfast, but it was okay.
