I enjoyed a lovely week at this hotel recently but found that there could be improvements to make the stay a more memorable one. I found some of the staff indifferent- but the chambermaid that serviced my room was superb and really looked after me well. The hotel was clean, and in a fabulous position on the front with superb views over to Valletta. There were continual problems of toilets not working and difficulty using the key card system and broken hairdryers. Breakfast was OK - I would have liked fresh juice rather than squash and a better selection of breads and rolls, but there was plenty of hot breakfast choices. Evening meals were either in the dinning room where there was plenty of choice and the meals were lovely, of you could eat in alternative restaurants within the complex. Momos was absolutely awful - food was cool and very small portions which were not well presented. The Continental Italian restaurant was great!
The indoor swimming pool was shabby and the lifts in one part of the building were rickety and I did not feel safe in these. There was one lift being replaced.
Bedrooms were of different standards - I paid for an upgrade to a superior front room which was enormous and had a balcony which had the sun on it most of the day and amazing views.
There were tea and coffee making facilities in the room and an empty fridge - which was very useful. The position of the hotel was superb for walking, shopping, or taking a local bus around to other parts of the island.
