Stayed here purely to go on a diving holiday. From the reviews I had read here I was not expecting much. The place was very pleasant, was very clean and smelled good. The front of house staff were professional and friendly. The cleaning staff were very friendly and always offered to clean my room even if not necessary. I went... More

Myself and two friends were allocated this hotel as part of festival package, we never would've stayed here had we read the reviews. Check in was made complicated because they thought we were arriving a day later - I would advise printing out booking confirmation etc to prove to them you've paid. Because of this our room wasn't ready, we... More

Due to no fault of our own and certainly not by choice myself and my husband had to spend a night in this dreadful place ( it's a long story ), it made Fawlty towers look like a five star hotel. The room was absolutely freezing and the interior was very drab to say the least, in fact it was... More

Even though the reception area was clean and well presented. The rooms clean and tidy but could do with updating. The staff where excellent.The breakfast was not very good or nice. You can can get breakfast cheap enough in the bars and cafes locally. At night was a big problem with very loud noices coming from the local bars and... More

I set out on my trip to Malta over the Easter weekend ready for a fun filled trip with a few compadres with the expectation that the 3 star hotel we had booked would be a good place to lay my head after a few bevvies on the night. Now don't get me wrong I wasn't expecting a penthouse suite... More

Me and two friends recently stayed at the Primera for Annie Mac's lost and found festival. In arrival, I was told I hadn't paid for the first night of my stay. When I asked to use the internet to provide details of my payment confirmation, I was told I would have to pay for wifi. Eventually I negotiated using the... More

Minus: mould on the ceiling in the bathroom, overriped fruits and vegetables for a breakfast (and offer for breakfast was everyday almost the same), cleaning ladies used to come early morning - usually when we were preparing to go out. Positive: usually helpful staff on reception, good location of hotel, bath in the bathroom.

I have just returned after having a few days at the Primera, which I found to be ok. It's central and personally I think you get what you pay for. I only paid £55 for a four night stay in a room with a sea view (side on), including breakfast, so what people expect from a budget hotel I don't... More
