I stayed at the EGH as part of a holiday in Malta with the family. The location is excellent. It occupies a prime harbour side spot and is a mere ten minute walk (albeit uphill) from the Valletta city gate. The rooms are spacious and have all the amenities you'd expect of a well starred hotel. The breakfast is great... More

Brilliant stay, lovely spot, lovely pool and a man made beach so you can swim in the sea. Maid came round at 7pm everyday to make sure we had everything we needed and gave us a chocolate. Food and drinks a bit pricey as we were room only but we mostly ate out. Did eat in one night at the... More

We love this hotel and have stayed several times. The lobby area is a wonderful space for sipping a Cisk whilst cooing over the fabulous view from the Harbour View bar. The rooms are spacious and clean, the staff are friendly and welcoming and the pool area must have one of the best “sunbed” views in Malta. The prices are... More

The sauces were tasty, and the meat dishes with the different sauces and garnishes were appetising to say the least. The desserts were find and mouth watering, however, I would suggest to present...

It has a private beach and a comfortable swimming pool. Food is really good and it servers also dishes for... More

We love this hotel in fact it is virtually impossible to fault, location is amazing a short walk from Valletta. Best of all are the staff. We went for our daughters 12th birthday and she was treated like a Princess from start to finish. The staff are thoughtful and committed, from the General Manager down and without exception, true hospitality.... More

My wife and I booked to stay here from 16/08/16-23/08/16 incl. via Jet2. I was excited as I'd read the reviews which were, on balance, very positive and was looking forward to the welcome drink, the 5-star treatment, perhaps a little something for our special birthdays. Some weeks prior to arriving, I contacted the hotel to see about upgrading as... More
