The hotel's position, our room, dining and all facilities were first class and all members of staff with whom we came into contact were pleasant and helpful. We look forward to a return visit. The pool areas, seating and snack bar arrangements there are very good with a number of individual, thatch covered cabins with seats and tables.

Recommended this hotel from colleague at work. Absolutely excellent on all counts. Went room only as the intention was to go and explore and eat out all times , unfortunately the heat made the exploring a no go. Therefore we bought some breakfast vouchers from the hotel at a preferential rate and thoroughly enjoyed them. Indulged in an afternoon tea... More

I stayed in this hotel during my holiday in Malta and while it has great conditions, I would not classify it as a 5-star, maybe a 4, because it does not have all the luxury the 5-stars hotels usually have. Anyway, the rooms are big, even the standard ones, and the view from the pool is spectacular. The breakfast can... More

Have just returned from a wonderful week's stay in Valletta at the Grand Hotel Excelsior The hotel is just perfect to reach the city within minutes while retaining the exclusivity from all the noise and the crowds. I would have given it a full 5 star only for the fact that its decor and furnishings including carpets need to be... More

The Hotel is very nice, the 24hr staff is very well trained and helpful. The pool is clean and comfortable, the spa and gym are nice, the seafront fish restaurant is a bit pricey but very good quality. I hired a car through the hotel which was timely delivered to the hotel, they booked a restaurant for me and were... More

Visited the Excelsior for a 1 week stay. Must say that it was good hotel to start your holiday in Malta. Away from the hustle and busy hotels in St Julians, but an oasis of tranquillity close to the old Valetta city centre. Although a bit dated (carpets and duvets on the bed) the hotel is of an excellent standard.... More

We chose the hotel because of its location outside the Valletta walls, and wanted to go 5 star without the children. From the minute we arrived and checked in (with refreshing drink) the experience over the 5 days was excellent. The room was large and spotless, and refreshed twice per day. The breakfast was outstanding, the dinner buffet the same,... More

I stayed here in the middle of June with two of my friends. We booked the holiday through a discount website (onthebeach.com), and for the price we paid we were delighted with the hotel. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were cleaned twice a day along with free bottles of water that were replaced twice a day aswell. Having... More

I read other reviews before I headed for a 5 night break with my two boys, aged 15 and 11. Yes the outside of the hotel looks like it needs a cleaning but the inside of the hotel is fabulous. We were lucky enough to source a sea view room. The breakfast buffet was expansive, catering for every need. The... More
