Stayed in the Diplomat Hotel, Sliema on a 10-night break late November / early December on a half-board basis booked through the British Airways website. Sadly upon arrival in the late evening we were clerked into the hotel by a rude, unhelpful and ignorant older man. Upon raising this the next morning, we received an apology, apparently he had had...

Don't usually suffer from wind on holiday. The first night in the seafront room was windy and the window frame was quite noisy (needs a squirt of Decorators Mastic) However the rest of the week was perfect. Hot water is plentiful in a well appointed bathroom. The staff are unfailingly friendly and welcoming. Meal are great. Very English but the... More

A slightly tired hotel on the sea front doing great business with winter holiday pensioners. The rooms are clean but very tired and could benefit from some attention. I was quite happy with my 3 night stay but any longer may have been a strain. Breakfast was ok with quite a big selection of food but somehow un-appetising. Very watery... More

We were made very welcome at the Diplomat from the welcome drink at check in to care of our luggage on our last day in Malta, we were on a late flight home so that was very useful. The location of the hotel couldn't have been better. Local buses within a few minutes walk and a lovely promenade to both... More

I recently had a 2 month stay at the Diplomat and generally found it to be very clean, well run, with friendly staff and good food. It is in an excellent position, being half way between Sliema and St Julians. It is right on the promenade and my room had a lovely sea view. My criticism might be that it... More

The hotel location is on the Corniche with excellent view of the sea. The surroundings are also worth wandering. The rooms were average but the staff was warm. Breakfast option was limited. A good value for money hotel !!

I've stayed in many hotels but this one should've been better in view of its reviews. The staff seem unhappy and miserable especially at the check in desk, I've never seen them smile. The breakfasts, and the breakfast staff are okay but the dinners are unpredictable. Okay for bed & breakfast but not half board. The Pub in the hotel... More

The Diplomat is an average, in my opinion, 3 star hotel. Stayed 1 week end of February. The positives are, very friendly waiters, room maids who cannot do enough for you, comfortable mattresses (for my taste of course), spacious bedrooms. Negatives are as follows; very little public spaces, such as a quiet lounge with comfy chairs, the so called side... More
