We stayed here from 21 September for 2 weeks. Our room was in 8th floor, sea view. Other reviews have said "only 2 toasters, no salad etc., can't believe they were talking about same hotel, it's just not true. The food was great, a huge choice to suit everyone. The system for getting your drinks worked perfectly before entering dining room. The room itself was adequate, yes the bathroom was small but had bath, shower, toilet, hand basin etc, was very clean and we certainly wouldn't let the size of it ruin our holidays. I agree that the non sea-view rooms were not very nice views, but we spent £230 extra, a lot of money but well worth it, we spent hours on our large balcony watching the evening entertainment and the world go by. Take your own kettle or hire one for one euro a day just up the road, the lobby was very nice, staff excellent, nice day trips, we also went to Sicily to see mount etna, very tiring but worth it, Valletta is lovely, excellent bus service from outside the hotel takes you everywhere for just over 2 euros. All in all, a great holiday, don't be put off by silly, petty reviews, you will have a great time

Stayed: September 2012, traveled as a couple

returned yesterday from two week stay. excellent location and friendly helpful staff. my friend and I both have special dietary requirements and restaurant staff were knowledgeable and helpful, I even received gluten-free bread which is unusual in UK hotels never mind in Europe.would recommend to any other coeliac sufferers. room adequate but bathroom small, both clean and towels changed daily. hotel situated on beach front, pool area good.
Downsides - paying 24 euros for safe key for 2 weeks, also paying for kettle at 3.75 eu per day plus 20 euro deposit was ridiculous, especially given the large number of older persons, myself included, that like to have and, indeed would receive this service free of charge in UK 4* hotels.We decided not to bother with kettle, also no tea or coffee served with evening meal.

Plus notes - if you are happy to drink the local wine, it is very cheap in the hotel and perfectly drinkable, either by the glass or buying bottle. Use local bus services as they are cheap, not always as regular as timetable but this is Malta! Bus travel best way to see the island and certainly worth going over on the ferry to Gozo if this is your first visit to the islands. would stay here again.

Room Tip: some local traffic noise, be prepared for music noise from outside entertainment area if you are staying in peak season.

stayed at the Qawra palace hotel middle of september. after reading all the reviews of said hotel was very wary of staying there but found the hotel lovely staff very friendly and could not do enough for you. reported a fault at mid day was repaired befort returning to room in afternoon. room was cleaned bed made fresh towels etc daily what more could you ask for. food was different but with the wide variety to choose from and having a husband who is a bit picky/fussy found this was no problem and the portions as it was more os less help yourself was plentiful. outside area was clean pool and surroundings always cleaned and washed on a daily occurance. lots to see and do if you wanted to be adventurous bus stop across road from hotel for all tours and also local bus so you can just please yourself what you wanted to do. we did tour of island which throughly enjoyed would recommend to all and also listen to what being described. most of time was just lazy beside pool.

Room Tip: we did not feel it was paying for a room with a sea view as we were never much in room to get the good of it we did not pick a particular room but was given a room on the 7th floor was away from lifts nice and quiet and could not fault it. air condition in room fridge safe if required etc did not stay in room much so did not require tv remote

It is fair to say that in hindsight, I wish I hadn't read the reviews before staying at this hotel. I couldn't believe the extreme views of people which unfortunately did create some anxiety for us all. I travelled with my partner & parents, we were greeted by a very warm & friendly receptionist. Our rooms were over looking the sea & were both clean & comfortable. There was a flat screen TV in the room, it only has a couple of English speaking channels but we spent very little time in our room so this did not bother us. To get the reviews into some perspective I think that most of the negative reviews have been based on the minority's poor experiences, the majority of people staying here probably haven't added a review at all & all those we spoke to could not have spoken highly enough of this hotel, most of who stay here every year & some who travel 2-3 times a year to the Qawra palace hotel, surely this speaks for itself.

We stayed 10th to 18th October on an all inclusive basis. The food was amazing, there was a huge variety & you were often spoilt for choice. The whole time we were there the place was continually being cleaned including the pool area. The entertainment was OK, & the location of the hotel was great as it is close to the bus station & local amenities.

We recommend you go on the North & South island tour bus, really good value for money. Malta is truly beautiful country which we hope to visit again. The sea is warm & there are opportunities for swimming every where.

Please don't rely on the reviews, just book it & enjoy !!!

Room Tip: Book a sea view room- well worth the extra!!

Rooms in need of updating and fumagating. We were allocated our first room which had damp flaky plaster falling on bed. This was the 5th floor but when we spoke to another guest the following day they had a worse experience as they had cockroaches crawling over them during their first night on the 5th floor. The Restaurant Air Conidtioning Units were leaking and dripping all over the tables, disgusting. Restaurant staff and Housekeeping staff were very helpful. Food was ok but the lack of a cup of tea with your dinner is penny pinching. Also no tea making facilities in the room you must hire a kettle from reception if you want tea at 3.70 a day!! Go up the street and there is a shopkeeper hiring kettles that guests have pre used for 1 euro a day or bring your own. Also you must hire an iron if you need one, pay for the Sauna each time you use it and pay a deposit for the remote for the TV!! This isnt a 4 star it is barely a 2 but at least if it was put up as that you would know what to expect. Dont be put off going to Malta though it is fantastic island, very friendly people, we were there in October, still very busy with tourists, still very warm, late 20s all week. Get the weekly bus ticket for 12 euro and explore all areas as it has very interesting and beautiful places to see.

Room Tip: Pick the Sea View and the 8th floor was ok, dont go near the 5th
