We stayed here for a week B&B in Oct 2012, as a cheap package holiday for some late summer sun. Having read the reviews before we arrived - we would agree that the hotel is in need of refurbishment and we felt it was not really a hotel we wanted to spend much time relaxing in. All that said for the money and rating it offers an ideal location within the centre of Mellehia, quiet with amazing views across the bay with the islands of Comino and Gozo in the distance.
The room was cleaned every day and fresh towels provided. I wouldn't fancy staying here in the heat of summer as the hotel was stuffy and the air con unit in the room looked like it would make a lot of noise, a wall mounted fan provided localised cooling and air movement. The balconies are very small and don't offer much privacy but that seems to be the style in Malta.
We found breakfast to be fine - and alternated with a freshly baked roll filled with a boiled egg on one day and a sausage the next and a second roll with jam and butter. (There were also beans, bacon and scrambled egg and toast.) The fruit juice is not fresh which was a shame, and the fresh fruit was melon every day. A coffee tip - press the espresso twice to fill a cup and it is not too bad (I've had worse in hotels in the UK).
All in all I would say that the hotel is a good base for exploring Malta and Gozo and we felt its location in the town was much better than being isolated in the bay.
I should say that we are in our 30's and there were a lot of older patrons that appeared to be having a good time in the evening entertainment.
