Booked a double room at the St. Patrick's Hotel for one night (22 June 2009). We read mostly positive reviews and were attracted by beautiful Xlendi bay.
The hotel's location is perfect. It is right by the sea with excellent views over the nice blue waters of Xlendi bay.
We got an inner courtyard room, so no sea view for us. The room was quite small and very dark. Had it not been for the flat-screen TV, we would have thought that the room was straight out of the 1970s. The bed linens were old. In the bathroom, we discovered towels that were once white with holes in them and the faucet had lots of limescale (see photos). Teere was mold around the air conditioning vent. At night there was some noise coming from the inner courtyard (any conversation from the ground floor could be heard).
We asked the night receptionist for a kettle. After some searching, he brought an old kettle covered with dust.
Breakfast was a cold buffet with some vegetables, fruits and boiled eggs. Two waiters were walking around; although there were about 5 persons in total in the restaurant, they barely noticed our presence. For beverages, there was a juice and a coffee dispensers. Both provided disgusting drinks.
The owner definitely needs to spend some money renovating this hotel. If you still go there, make sure you book a room with a sea view and don't expect too much from this "4 star" hotel.
