I got a great bargain-priced Single, half-board, 7 day stay at the Bayview Hotel, Sliema, in February. I jumped at it. Now, as usual, in spending more time reading the reviews, I am getting a bit anxious. We stayed at the New Tower Palace back in 2005, and my review excoriated it, deservedly -- as I see current reviews are still devastating. Last January, I stayed at Plevna Hotel, and found it more than satisfactory.
What are your most recent experiences with the Bayview?
1. Does it face the Strand -- where all the cruise boats are tied up? Or the other waterfront, where if you walked far enough, you come to St Julians?
2. Does it have coffee-tea kit in the rooms?
3. I have not ridden the buses since 2005; are they user-friendly? Need exact change?
Very grateful for your assistance.
