My wife and i had previously syayed in Xemxija so were familiar with the area and knew what to expect. We read a few reviews of the Ambassador and decided to take a chance and booked a one week stay of Bed and Breakfast. Once we had booked we found some more reviews that were not quite as complimentary but... More

The ritz it isn't but it is clean , comfortable, affordable and has good transport links to the rest of Malta using the local bus service. The facilities are limited but there are plenty of nearby towns with good places to... More

We had to sort of edge around the wash basin to use the toilet and had to dry off in the shower as... More

Really disappointed. Hotel run down, staff not interested. Restaurant and bar were apparently only open for dinner if you were half board resident. Weather wasn't great but even when it was nice, the pool was closed. Will NOT be back.

Its not great, I got sent here after the terrible management of the Panaroma it Meliehah overbooked us (see review). The staff were all fantastic, the rooms are tired but clean but it is a bit rough round the edges. If I was paying I probably would not pick it. Breakfast was very basic.
