“An Oasis of Calm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

A very civilised place to stay. The staff are extremely friendly and could not be more helpful, the rooms are large, cool, very clean, have good beds and everything, and more, to make your stay comfortable, even if you are staying for an extended period and self-catering. Breakfast is very good indeed and meets every possible taste. It is very quiet at night and you cannot hear movement from other guests or from the roads around the hotel. The rooftop pool and lounging area are well kept with comfortable sunbeds. We saw one of the newly refurbished suites and they are extremely well-appointed.

The bath being a little slippery I thought that a rubber mat might be a good idea and intended to suggest this next day. Next morning, bright and early, the housekeeper appeared with a new rubber bath mat. Being able to read a guest’s mind is above and beyond the call of duty I reckon.

Qawra/ Bugiba itself is not the most cultured area to stay but, that said, there are several very good restaurants within a short walk as well as some nice cafes and bars, the bus station is extremely well placed and has regular cheap services to all parts of the island and the sea, with bathing places, is no distance at all. There are several supermarkets to hand and vast numbers of tourist goods, clothes and souvenir shops as well as a pharmacy and lots of places to book tours. It feels very safe to walk around at night.

We would certainly stay there again and recommend it, without any hesitation, to family and friends.

Well what can we say about our stay at the Park Lane Hotel. What a fabulous and fantastic holiday we had with thanks to all the staff. There is nothing we can find fault about it. The room we had (room 102) had been recently re-furbished and had all the amenities needed for a self-catering holiday if that is what you want. We stayed bed & breakfast and nowhere have we ever experienced breakfasts like it. Full english breakfast was amazing down to everything you would need from omelettes to continental (special mention to Barbara who is an asset to the hotel).
We would also like to give a big thankyou to Liz on reception who was absolutely amazing and always happy to help along with Paul & Michael. The manager of the hotel Andrea was always very pleasant and very helpful too
The last time we went to Malta was 21 yrs ago but we will definatly not leave it that long again as we will be back to Park lane

Dear 006heather

We are very pleased to see you had a fantastic stay with us at the Park Lane and that our staff contributed to make it special.

May we point out, however, that room 102 is not one of the refurbished rooms, therefore it is great that you felt it still met all your requirements.

Anyway, thanks for all your lovely comments and we look forward to having you with us again.

Kind regards

My friend and I visited Malta for three days and stayed at Aparthotel. We stayed in the penthouse which was lovely. I definitely recommend this hotel. Although situated in a very busy area (which is a bonus - literally less than a minute from the bus station, 5 - 10mins walk to the sea, brilliant shops, safe at night, good restaurants .... the list goes on) once we walked into Aparthotel it was like walking into a different world - very peaceful. The manager (Andrea) was great and so were the rest of the staff - very friendly and helpful. When I made my first booking there was an error on the hotels part and the manager was very quick to rectify it. The penthouse was lovely and clean. It looked like the hotel had just been refurbished. The breakfast was brilliant. This is good value for money and I recommend it! Eno :)

When you enter the hotel you really get a nice feeling about the hotel but what a contrast there is with the rooms. We had booked an appartment and yes the size was ok but there were a lot of defects in the room. The bathroom door could not be closed because pieces of wood where missing. The furniture has had its best time. There is some noice comming from the road. WIFI is free and good!
The staff is very friendly and the breakfast is very good !

Dear GRIET D

Thank you very much for your review, we always appreciate any kind of feedback from our guests as this helps us serve you better.

It appears that you stayed in an apartment that has not yet been refurbished and we are aware that some aspects are less than perfect in such rooms. By the end of 2014 we plan to have upgraded all remaining rooms and this includes not only furniture, flooring and bathrooms but also double glazing to keep out any noise. Unfortunately it was not possible to do the refurbishment all at once however we are pleased that the parts that have been done are to your liking.

Thanks for your comments about the breakfast and the staff.

Meanwhile we hope that on your next visit you will be fully satisfied by everything :)

Kind regards

Melanie

The apartment we stayed in was so big and modern and spacious and we had a big balcony too. There was bottled water and a little jug of fresh milk left in the fridge for tea/coffee which was a nice touch. Bathroom was again really big and bright and modern. Everything was spotless. The room was so comfortable we were sorry we were only there one night - but we had plans to go to Gozo for some relaxation time!
Breakfast was lovely. All staff were so pleasant and helpful. We checked-in very late but this was no problem and the man who checked us in was very welcoming and efficient.
Can't fault this place and could have happily spent a week in it!

Just back from week trip to Malta. We stayed here and it was the perfect spot for touring the island. The hotel is really nice and modern - stayed in room 404 (sea view with balcony) - big walk in shower - modern bathroom. The living area was a great space, comfy couch, flat screen tv with hdmi and a good number of channels. air con and fans in the place too. They have cooker/ microwave etc so fully equipped if you wanted to cook yourself. The only thing missing there was a little coffee making pot, which we both would have liked. The balcony has great view of the sea and sunset. There is rooftop terrace with pool - never crowded and has lovely comfy beds there. They will bring you up drinks too if you want them. Brilliant views up here!
We did B&B and it suited us perfectly - hot breakfasts to order or cold meats, fruit etc. Again didn't have "real" coffee here - a new machine on the way i heard though! But the tea is good and strong :)
The staff on reception etc. Liz, Barbara, Michael and others were really helpful and just nice people. The kind of people who like people, and so chatting wasn't a chore for them! They suggested eating in a restaurant at the square called Venus - and it was the nicest meal we had when we were there so that was great. Also had great cocktails in O'Reillys around the corner (seemed an unlikely spot but they were gorgeous).
The area itself is grand - lots of little restaurants/places to have a drink or two. You are directly beside the Bugibba bus station - which is a transport hub so easy to get around the island from there. A week ticket on the bus is €12 for use on the whole island. We visted Valetta and Mdina on the buses - both amazing places (but thats for another review).
This was our first visit to Malta and we will definitely be back and we will surely stay here again.
Thanks for making our trip great - have been singing your praises to anyone who'll listen.

Room Tip: 404 - sea view - sunset with large balcony

Dear MellowYellow_7

Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a detailed review about your experience at the Park Lane and your holiday in Malta. And special thanks for recommending us... we rely on word-of-mouth recommendations for our business so this is much appreciated.

A note on the coffee, following the suggestions of our customers' reviews we are pleased to announce that we now have filter coffee included in the breakfast. Furthermore, although we do not supply coffee machines in the rooms, capuccinos and espressos may be ordered by room service. So perhaps that is something to look forward to on your next visit ;)

Hope all is well and hope to see you again soon.

Regards

Melanie

We stayed in the family apartment for the duration of our stay. It was clean and spacious with two bathrooms and a small balcony. The apartment was well equipped and nicely decorated, with tea, coffee and fresh milk provided. The rooftop pool is fairly small but there are plenty of loungers and good views over the rooftops. The reception area downstairs looks as if it has been recently decorated and is modern and stylish, with a bar area. We didn't try the breakfast there, however I can thoroughly recommend the jam-filled croissants and coffee at the cafe on the corner on the opposite side of the street as you walk towards the sea :) The receptionist at Park Lane (not sure of his name, sorry!) was lovely - couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and always greeted us with a smile.

We were disappointed with Qawra itself - full of places serving English breakfasts for €3 - not what we personally look for in a foreign holiday. The small beach is nice enough and the sea is amazingly clear and great for cooling off in. The open-top bus trip leaves from the square near Park Lane and is worth doing - Valetta is simply beautiful, and Mdina is very picturesque.
