This was by far our favourite hotel out of the 3 that we stayed at in Malta for our wedding/ honeymoon. We wanted to do as much sightseeing as possible so the hotels location just outside the main gates of Valletta was perfect for us. When we arrived, the staff were very welcoming and the check in was very smooth. When we arrived at our room, we were disappointed to find that it did not have a balcony. This was something that was very important to us and I had been in correspondence with the Reservations Dept to ensure we booked the correct room. It subsequently turned out that the advice they had given me was misleading and we had booked the wrong room category. We were able to move room the next day but it did mean that our honeymoon did not get off to the best start.

The rest of our time there was brilliant though and we were very sad to leave! We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and the breakfast selection was huge we both got addicted to the fresh pancakes and omelettes. There was also a welcome drinks reception one night which was a nice touch.

Our 2nd room had not been refurbished so looked a little tired but the views from the balcony more than made up for it. One night we were even able to sit there and see and hear a band playing covers of Iron Maiden songs on the walls of Valletta!

The pool area was a fantastic place to chill out after a days sightseeing although we were horrified at the price of the ice creams 5 Euros for a Magnum! We didn’t eat in either of the hotel’s restaurants as we preferred to walk into Valetta for dinner or buy snacks from the kiosk by the bus station.
The hotels car park is quite small but we did not have any problems in finding a space each evening. The staff were always pleasant and friendly but we were slightly surprised that they didn’t appear to take any notice of the fact we were on honeymoon, even a card would have been nice. This is just a minor quibble though and overall we loved the place and would definitely consider staying there if we ever go back to Malta.
