“Lovely 9 nights :-)”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

This hotel gets a hard time from many people on here, but it is actually a pleasant place to stay for what you are paying. Staff are very friendly and the manager is a lovely man!! Rooms are clean and comfortable.

Its important to remind people that the restaurant is separate from the hotel, so reviews for this should be separated. Flies are an issue, but overall the restaurant is good. George, Christina and Adam (who had his last night working with the restaurant) deserve compliments for their hard work. Food is good quality, but vegetarian options are minimal.

Lovely time!

We spend 9 nights at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Great location and conveniently located for all facilities.... All staff is amazing but must mention GM Josseph and receptionist Alexandra's support during our mistake in understanding checkout date.

Please don't go for other feedbacks on here this hotel is absolutely a great value for money and we have no problem recommending this to anyone....

We paid £150 for a 5 night stay so we weren't expecting much but we found a good place to get our heads down. The hotel itself is well out of the way so nice and quiet and it's only a short walk down the hill to the bus stop where you can access most of Malta from there for €2.60 per person for a day ticket. We never ate at the hotel so,I can't comment on the food but as far as flies go they seemed to be everywhere we went on Malta so it isn't just the Ambassador. Rooms were cleaned everyday and we got fresh towels everyday too. Wonderful view from the balcony of St. Paul's Bay. To summarise the hotel is clean and tidy but could do with some modernisation as it looks tired but you get what you pay for and we couldn't complain what we got for our money. Would we stay here again? Probably not. We would go to Bugibba or Qawra I would think

Room Tip: If you want cheap and cheerful then this is what you get her

After a long drive we arrived at the Ambassador. To my surprise we were given a grumpy welcome as He told us that we did not have any booking!This I had done personally and the manager or owner continued to argue that I had booked somewhere else as there was no booking for us also saying that the hotel is full.After some time he said that they have another hotel which is Primera in Bugibba/Qawra and was going to check if we were booked there by mistake! Pretty sure it was their mistake as we heard the phone call they had booked us in Primera without advising nor us nor the hotel owner.This attitude is totally unacceptable as there are many hotels to choose from and The Ambassador truly is no special place to be,it really needs some maintenance especially the pool area.As we were not at fault, after he was very helpful with the luggage and prepared a room (as it was not true the hotel was full in fact it was nearly empty) this is what I saw as by the pool there were maybe 4 people in the much crowded summer months.

We have had a fabulous week at this hotel. Staff are friendly it is a relaxed place and a good nights sleep is guarenteed. People have complained of the flies but this seems to be a problem in all outside eating areas in malta not just here. Rooms are basic but clean! And cleaned everyday. You can hire a kettle from reception. Air con was fantastic in our room. There is a good selection of resturants in walking distance to the hotel and the food here at night we thought was superb. Buses are easy to catch from here too. Please dont write this hotel off its not 5 star but we loved it and plan to return.

We were at this hotel in July 2013 and we liked it very much, I don't understand the complaints. I did my research about the location (far from central Malta) and me and my boyfriend were really happy with the service. The views from our room was stunning over the sea and Bugibba. I booked this hotel already in February. The bar and restaurant could need a major update though.

The first days we had a problem with the lights, but the staff fixed it every time and then they had an electrician come and fix it for good. The breakfast was a bit to "small" for us, only bread and cereals and it was true about the flies, there were quite a few at breakfast but no bigger problem. If you want a 5 star hotel then you should book a room elsewhere, but I really liked this place. Our room was clean, tovels clean, we felt really secure and didn't have to be afraid that the cleaners would steal our things (as they did in India). This is a good hotel if you plan to explore Malta during daytime, it's probably not the place to hang around all day long, doing nothing. The bustrip to central Malta was a bit long, but we got used to it and it's a great way of sightseeing ;)

Room Tip: Book early to get a seaside view balcony

12th-19th July 2013
Staff very friendly and helpful, as a hotel all round it was a joke!!!
Restaurant was seperately run and very outdated to say the least, filthy covered with flies, service was ok but food was very limited in choice.
Swimming pool could be used by people outside the hotel, so there were complete strange wandering around!!
I really would not recommend this hotel as it was completely isolated and only had a shop, 2 restaurants and a chinese!!!!
