                                                  This hotel lies just off the capital city and close to all amenities. It is surrounded by fabulous historic walls and enjoys a magnficent view across the harbour. Buffet breakfast and dinners are varied and choosy. Their fruit muesli was simply delicious. The staff are English speaking and most corteous. At one stage we complained about lack of hot water in the shower. Within the hour it was repaired. What we really liked was that they provide a courtesy room free of charge. We had to check out at 12.00pm but were allowed to use the hotel facilties (gym, beach etc)for the rest of the day and invited to use this room for a short rest and a shower prior our departure. Surely one of the best hotels we have stayed in and highly recommend it.

                                                  The only thing we can criticise is that the car park is not directly connected with the lobby area and there is no lift that carries you from the ground floor to the lower bsements to reach your car (although one can ask the porter to park/bring your car)

                                                  I was supposed to be provided with a room with sea view but I was provided only with a ground level room overlooking the entrance.

                                                  Swimming pool surroundings cleaning just inacceptable. Housekeeping brings a certain degree of surprises...

                                                  reception slow, took them 40min to get me a taxi, which was not a taxi but a transfer company. The driver didnt know the address so we were wondering around Maltese streets. Got 1h late in my meeting when is out of high season, no traffic, in 2km distance from the hotel!!!

                                                  I have beent here many times before. They know me and always ensure I am well looked after. The Admiral's Landing is a very good restaurant and the breakfasts are outstanding. The gym is adequate.

                                                  The gym could be better for the quality of the hotel and there should be either small towels or paper towels available, not the large beach towels for the swimming pools.

                                                  The bed was extremely comfortable and so are the deckchairs. The food is fantastic and there's a great variety. The room is quite spacious and we had a lovely view.

                                                  I didn't like the children jumping into the pool without anyone from the staff telling them off.

                                                  All of the staff were very helpful and friendly and the reception staff were particularly helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The location was excellent - five minutes from the bus station and the centre of Valetta. The ferry service to Silema is 10 minutes away and from Silema one can take boats trips to various parts of Malta and its neighbouring islands (Gozo and Comino). The views are to die for and I would highly recommend paying extra to have a room on floor eight with views of Valetta and the sea. The hotel is luxury personified at a reasonable price (apart from the ice creams!!)

                                                  Staff at front desk should / could be more knowledgeable regarding the breakdown of taxes on the bill, ie what they are for

Good hotel. nice personal. doing all requests very fast and tryind to help if you need. very pleasure - if you should chek -out late - cos of plane - they can give to you free room for 1 hour befor transfer to airoport. to much famous people (opera and pop singers) stay here. ( but maybe only when i had a trip)

                                                  pretended to be very luxury - but not fresh furniture and carpets.

                                                  The hotel is great and it offers excellent service and accomodation. It is very close to Valleta and to the main bus station from where you can go anywhere on the island. It has very nice pool, bars around it and very friendly service. Everyone speaks english and all people no matter what they work in the hotel do their best to sattisfy guests. Room is cleaned twice a day and the hotel is excellent in all means. Parking is avaialable for free and the stairs that some wrote is nothing very easy to walk and the place is very close to Valleta 200-300m.

                                                  No complains at all 5 star from us for the service.
