Just come back from 5 nights in this hotel in their worst room, it was a bargain trip with Sovereign Holidays. Smart hotel built in 1936 but not opened until 1947 because of the war. The grounds are lovely and it was warm enough to walk around and their is an outdoor pool (a little too cool for us). The... More

I spent a few days in Malta to look at the churches and paintings. The hotel is perfectly situated at the entrance to the old town. It has the ambiance and charm of a traditional grand hotel, particularly in the public areas. My room had a lovely view across the harbor and into the sunset though it was a bit... More

Having traveled with a tour company first time we confidently booked direct this time. Online booking was easy and efficient and the follow up by them was good. We were as happy this trip as last, in fact more so. The hotel has an elegance that does not come with the modern glass boxes. It has real style. The staff... More

This is a wonderful hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our four days here. But it's worth saying straight away that if your idea of a 5-star hotel is the sort of shiny, modern corporate look of big, blingy chains in the Gulf or the Far East etc then this is not that. It is individual, elegant and comfortable with (as... More

Friendly staff, wonderful gardens, great amenities on hand. Ideally sitiuated for the major historical attractions of Valetta. Ideal for the more mature tourist not too desirous of a nightlife. In house restaurant not quite as good as the rest of the hotel. Breakfast buffet is a triumph, particularly helpful staff in the lounge area. Gardens have views over harbour and... More

I can only echo the positive reviews of others who have stayed here. The location is superb, with the bus station some fifty yards from the hotel entrance and the main streets of Valletta some 100 yards away. The staff were efficient and friendly. The room was comfortable and quiet with a view of Floriana. There were two large wedding... More

A very comfortable hotel with a great atmosphere close to many of the main amenities in Valletta, including the bus terminal. The staff were all friendly, efficient and very helpful at all times. Breakfast was a well stocked buffet style with plenty of choice of both hot and cold items to suit all palettes. The hotel grounds were vast with... More

We chose this Hotel for our 30th Anniversary and weren't disappointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food varied and plentiful. Add to that, a super strong WiFi signal that was also free, and we had all the ingredients for a memorable stay. The room was well-appointed with a tasteful décor. Ours overlooked the Harbour.

We have just returned from a four night stay in this lovely hotel by the city walls in Valletta. The hotel is beautiful and in an excellent location very close to the bus station and therefore connection all over Malta. The hotel grounds are extensive and stunning and it would have been nice to have had more time to enjoy... More
