Excellent Location, Beautiful and Peaceful

Jan 22nd, 2020

The hotel is located close to the city centre of Valletta, with most of the places in walking distance. The hotel have several complimentary amenities like swimming pool, gym, hot tub, etc for its patron. The restaurants are also very nice with good quality food. Breakfast is also sumptuous.

Excellent New Year celebration

Jan 21st, 2020

Just very well done all round. The rooms are large and very comfortable and we had a small balcony with a sea view. The breakfast buffet was standard to good with the usual queues for fresh cooked eggs. We did have trouble getting coffee served to the table a couple of times which was a little annoying but it arrived eventually. Now, New Years eve was a package for dinner, entertainment and ALL drinks. We couldnt quite believe this was going to be the case but it was a full bar and good champagne too. The drinks had to be requested/collected from a central temporary bar but this worked really well and was well staffed. The entertainment, a live band with three singers (in English) was outstanding and kept going from 9 till almost 2am with a couple of short breaks. Fireworks too. The food was sort of tapas style come tasting menu and 6 or more courses, varied with fish and meat and a separate vegetarian offereing. All in all too much food but was delicious. The seasonal decorations were beautiful with a large tree in the huge entrance area and tasteful orinamentation on all floors. We didn't partake but the new years day lunch buffet look outstanding. You can walk to town but be warned it is hilly here - everywhere! Taxi and minibus were arranged for us, we were a group of 14. Plenty of lounging space in or near the bar with service for drinks if required. Our group do a NYE away break each year to somewhere different, but this was such a success we are considering returning. I would have no problem recommending this hotel and may even return as a couple TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

A Lovely Stay

Jan 19th, 2020

Having had such a good experience staying at the Grand Excelsior when last we were in Malta, we stayed again and enjoyed it once more. The service was excellent. Louis arranged our transfers from the Gozo Ferry at Cirkewwa in the first instance and the airport when we left (at an early hour). His team does a great job. We also took advantage of the free shuttle drop off at Upper Barrakka Gardens one day too which was very helpful. The rooms in the hotel are a bigger than average size and are comfortable. The buffet breakfast offered is excellent. We also enjoyed the Maltese Buffet Dinner one evening with all sorts of delicious local goodies on offer. We were grateful to Johnny from the front desk who was able to ensure we had a room to immediately have when we checked in despite arriving in the mid morning. All in all, another great stay - and we hope to return sometime. NB: The hotel is excellent value for what is on offer. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
