Have just returned from a week at the Qawra Palace with my husband and father in law. We chose this hotel because we had stayed there a few years back and were very happy with it and thought it wasnt a bad location for my 85yr old father in law, being sea view and fairly close to bus stations/shops/
I think it was 8 years ago since we were there and nothing has changed at all that we can see. They were going round painting walls etc whilst we were there though.
The food although nicely cooked was bland and very repetitve and not much selection.Breakfast was fried eggs, bacon,tomatoes,beans or hard boiled eggs.the usual salad selection and fruit. On alternative mornings the change was sausages and scrambled eggs obviously cant cook bacon and sausages on the same morning. ON one occasion we had lunch in place of dinner and this was a very small selection indeed glad we werent on all inclusive! A lot of tables had reserved signs on them making less to go around and also at times tables werent re laid very quickly.
The rooms were very cold and also so was the ballroom i dont think there was an evening that people werent wearing jackets or woolies!
The entertainment was ok have seen worse and once the evening wore on it improved!
The standard of cleanliness was ok and bedding and towels were changed regularly.
I do feel the hotel is catering for mainly older people who go there for extended winter breaks and maybe dont eat either a lot or are not too fussed as long as they are away from home and just want the company etc.
Fair play and well done to the Thomas Cook (i think) re Bill who tried to arrange things like bingo and tea dances etc so there was a least something going on especially as the weather wasnt to be recommended.
Malta is a lovely place with friendly people and lots to do and the buses are to be recommended they are an experience in themselves, bumpy but fun.
We do not think we will return to the Qawra Palace again.
