Though this hotel is closing next month, reception extremley pleasant, and friendly. Our room on the 6th floor despite being a bit tired was kept spotlessly clean and tidied up very professionaly, well done the very polite lady who seemed to do all the 6th floor on her own. The bar was friendly, the slight hic up was the service...

The bathroom needed updating which I think is going to be done in the next few months, The breakfast was everything you needed and the service was very good.

Had a good break, food disapointing. We were always early for breakfast and took dinner just after 6.30. The restuarnat was open until 9.30 so how much was cooked in advance. Salads were nice More like a managers canteen than 4 star. Everywhere is very tired; the tv was out of the arc, but I understand when they close next...

Friendly staff, location convenient for visiting Valetta, but: room reservation not respected (reserved a room with sea view at a higher price, got a room with SIDE sea view at the same higher price), rather poor overall quality of room, very average breakfast.

This hotel is located on the outskirts of Silemma close to the harbour. The location is confident for visiting Valetta and is only about 20mins drive from the airport. We booked a double bed with a sea view. Unfortunately we were given a twin room. However we didn't let this ruin the stay and the location of the room may...

In the heart of Sliema so quick ferry ride across (or 15 minute bus ride) to Valetta and on harbour side for the boat trips, Waterfront fits the bill for a short break. The promenade is bustling with cafés and restaurants, very lively with many young people and only slightly marred by the ongoing building work. Slept well enough in...

From the moment we checked in last Tuesday, we were treated with the utmost politeness and friendliness. We were shown to our room by Henry who explained how to operate the room safe and other useful information. Our room was huge with two balconies and a fabulous sea view. Plenty of storage space meant we could unpack both suitcases and...

On a friend's recommendation we had a week's stay at the Waterfront in early October 2016. The room was fine---comfortable beds, plenty of storage and tea-making facilities---however a lack of toiletries in the bathroom. Noisy too overnight from outside but then it is on the waterfront. For our return flight to the UK we were being picked up at 7pm...

We stayed here for a week at the end of September/beginning of October. Unfortunately only found out about the refurbishment after we had booked.
