My girlfriend and I (fianceé, after this trip, woohoo!) used this hotel as a base for exploring Malta. It's in an absolutely amazing location - town centre, 20 metres from st john's cathedral, right in the middle of town.

The service was amazing, everyone was soooo helpful. The day I proposed, I asked them to set up a special dinner for just the two of us, up on the terrace (on 30th December... yeah, freezing :D) They set up a table and a waiter stayed just for the two of us with no hesitation, they brought a cake with candles, decorated the terrace in a beautiful way just for us... a magical evening.

The rooms are good, quite spacious (for Valetta!) modern and well fitted out. A couple of minor quibbles - our room didn't have a window to the outside, just a narrow pane to the central stair/open area. Also a shower towel, once, was quite dirty - we just tossed it on the floor and shared. I stress that these are very minor and I'd absolutely stay here again, and the window thing was surprisingly not at all an issue as the room was so nice and big. Bathroom is great, we loved the shower. The espresso machine in the room is also a nice touch.

Breakfast is amazing. Service is slightly slow, which I'll chalk down to us coming in off season and them having fewer waiters on staff. Huge variety, very high quality breakfast and a large selection. The fruit in particular was lovely. Breakfast was (one of) the high points of the day. If we came back to Malta we'd definitely stay there again.

The Cumberland in Valletta was lovely, cozy and welcoming. Each staff member we spoke with was polite, helpful and gracious. My regret is not making note of each name. Davor and Goran were especially delightful. The property was wonderfully centrally located, clean, quiet and had a fantastic and plentiful breakfast. We also had a dinner at their restaurant which was pleasing to the eyes and palate. Their rooftop terrace was amazing with great views of the city. What a keeper!

I enjoyed my stay at The Cumberland for 2 of 6 nights on Malta. The room was large, well laid out, immaculate, and provided many thoughtful amenities - fluffy towels, Milton Brown toiletries, mini bar, and coffee/tea accoutrements. Bedding was very comfortable and room had decent sound proofing.

Hotel was well designed, nice lines, very well located on a quiet street 2 minutes out of all the action. It’s a solid 4 star. I knocked off a star for tortuously long waits for an only-ok breakfast - they need to add a waiter to speed things along. Also, reception staff seemed somewhat distracted and indifferent - friendly, but not solicitous.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The staff was very willing and helpfull. Mr. Davor Bebe at the receptiin especially. The management could be a little more generous in reimbursing us for the breakfast we didn't have.
