We've been to this hotel before- we love its location and views from the terrace. This time was very disappointing.Things seemed to be 'winding down' before a refurbishment and no one seemed to be bothered about customer care.There are many good restaurants close by, so we only booked breakfast, and that was extremely basic.
It was sad to see this hotel-with such a lot of potential- looking so tired and run down.
Let's hope the refurbishment goes ahead and results in improvements- we'd be happy to pay a little more to enjoy our stay there again!

After reading the reviews, we decided to stay here regardless.. we knew what to expect!!
the location is fantastic, near bus stops, 5 min walk into Buggiba and right on the harbour.
yes the hotel is past its best, but we found the staff friendly (even had birthday/anniversary cards and a bottle of wine in the room on arrival)
who cares if the tv receptions not good, we don,t go on holiday for that.. and yes, we got room 210, with the short shower, but we laughed about it..
Breakfast improved over the week, but served a purpose..
Will certainly return after refurbishment..

Stayed at Gilleru Harbour Hotel for a week and was amazed at the lovely setting. The hotel is really on the seafront of St. Paul's Bay with all facilities in walking distance. The staff was absolutely fantastic with advises, help and assistance. The hotel, however, was worn and probably hadn't been improved for the 30 years of existence. Understand that a major refurbishment is planned for the end of the year and it is needed. Wouldn't have a problem to go beck after the upgrading. Malta is like an endless walk in history.

well what to say an a lovely spot of malta, we met people who had gone year after year.
we would like to be part of that it has amazing potential.
but the food was not great the air conditioning not great, although be believe its up for a refurb in nov and we are hopeful it may open next year with a few minor changes to make it a perfect venue for us to visit we would even take the family as its a safe part of the world as is malta

Room Tip: ask for a sea view it is amazing

this hotel but in a nutshell.....dreadful breakfast but the loveliest view ever! had to eat out all the time . the hotel needs livening up bit of personality warmth and a good breakfast.,
not great cleaning , stale smelling room and distinct lack of anyone really giving a damn!
could be a little gem if in the right hands.
met lovely guests though who were there to chill as I was

Room Tip: must be a balcony

very disapointed with the standard of the hotel
the whole hotel looks as if it hasn't been refurbished in 30 years
bathrooms where clean but held together with mastic sealant and the fixed shower head was at 4 foot so most impractical
when we pointed out that the fridge didn't work we were told it just insuated cold items, but when i mentioned it a 2nd time the problem was sorted, it was a faulty plug.
Because of this attitude we didnt even mention the 12 inch T.V. with the front panel off so you had to put your finger to make it in work and when we did get it working reception was awful the bracket on the wall obviously held a better T.V. at some time
It is such a shame as the location was great but the only thing 4 star about this hotel at the moment is the plaque on the door
Please spend some money and refurbish this hotel
