"Don't go there" was the theme of some previous TripAdvisor reviews and we should have listened but we wanted a budget holiday to discover if we would like Malta and perhaps return for a second time. There seems to be an odd arrangement where the pool and restaurant are a separate business from the hotel which appears to be rooms... More

Ignore any bad reviews! Myself and my partner read about this hotel and decided to make up our own minds and we weren't disappointed! First of all, the staff are amazing, so polite, friendly and helpful - particularly the hotel and restaurant managers. Secondly the food is excellent, we went half board and had a lovely, fresh buffet breakfast of... More

We booked to stay in the ambassador even though we were quite put off by the reviews. When we arrived. We were greeted by the lovely staff at reception and told we were staying in room 401 which we were delighted by as we had read this was the best room. Upon entering our room we absolutely gobsmacked by the... More

My friend & I went to the Ambassador hotel nearly a year ago in May 2013. We booked this hotel as it was located in a nice, quiet place, which is what we wanted in our break away. It was only afterwards when I had booked to go to this hotel that I wondered if I had made a mistake,... More

We recently stayed 5 nights at this hotel. Hotel was old, but very clean and typical maltese. We had room 310 which had L-shaped balcony with fantastic sea views. The bar and food at the bar was lovely as was the lovely house wine.! A short 5 minute walk to bus stops to more lively resorts. We bought the 7... More

I was really apprehensive about staying here after reading the reviews but I have snce found out that these people must be extremely fussy!! If you are looking for a pleasant retreat from taking in Maltas bustling cities and amazing culture then the location of this hotel is brilliant. There are a couple of bars and restaurants close by and... More
