“Restaurant - So and so..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Food was good but the service not so.

While taking our order we had to repeat our preferences more than once, luckily we got what we ordered; even though we were left for an hour waiting until the food arrived. The only bad comment about the food was that the salad was not fresh and one of our desserts looked like it had already been nibbled on. Food portions were big.

Liquers should also be served in the appropriate glass.

A very simple hotel in need of some modernisation.
Excellent location.

The staff, Caroline in particular, was incredible. She continually went above and beyond. She greeted us with a cold drink, hand wrote directions to the airport and had made excellent email contact before our arrival.
She was fantastic.

We had an awful experience at this guesthouse. We booked a room for three nights a couple of weeks before we actually got to Malta. We were asked for a deposit which we paid by credit card (well, we thought so as it said 'paid' on the responding email we got from Point de Vue). Upon arrival the lady behind the counter could not find our names in the sloppy notebook she had in front of her. She simply waved us out as the guesthouse was fully booked and we were not in the book. Eventually she called the manager, who treated us in a very very uncongenial manner. Although we showed him the corrsepondence which said we had paid the deposit, he kept on blaming us. After a while it turned out the guesthouse should have sent us another email confirming our booking and asking permission for taking money out of our bank account. In a slightly less hostile manner, the manager eventually suggested we could stay at a different place for the night, and come back the day after. We did go to the other place, but never went back. Of course, everyone can make a mistake, and the management is not the only one to blame: we should have checked our bank account properly, but the aggressive behaviour of both the lady and the manager is unacceptable.

It is located exactly opposite Mdina. The bus service is very close to the guesthouse as well. Breakfast was the best one we had in Malta. And the south African food was really delicious. Staff were very helpful. Free internet. The room was very cosy. It was excellent!

Location wise Point de Vue couldn't be better positioned, with restaurants on site, bus stops and car park outside, ATM across the street and entrance to Mdina straight ahead from the front door. Staff were very accommodating throughout the stay. lovely elegant communal areas, rooms a bit of a mis match quality wise but clean and comfortable non the less.

My room was lovely, the price was very good, I enjoyed the restaurant, the location is superb and the staff were pleasant and helpful. The only reason I didn't give this hotel the maximum rating is because the heating provided for the room was a portable, gas, space heater! I don't think they realize the potential danger this poses.

Room Tip: Do not go to sleep with the portable gas space heater on! Potentially serious consequences.

The staff were very kind and helpful and that was their saving grace. Thought it would be nice to stay within the walls, however the room was cold and the only form of heating was bottled gas! Very damp and toxic.
The staff & service was very slow in the restaurant. It took a long time to get our food and drinks. Even though we went to breakfast early so we could leave on time, we were there first and still it took AGES to get the breakfast, we almost missed our flight. Not worth the money at all. Shower tray was blocked and almost flooded the bathroom too.
