Just come back from a 4 night stay here. Room & view were wonderful. Very pretty with the Christmas lights outside the hotel. However I stayed here with my family including my mum who finds it extremely difficult to walk far. On the last night we asked the price of transport to take us up to Valletta (as the crow...

Just returned from a 5 night stay in the Grand Hotel Excelsior. Overall our stay was good but nothing special and it certainly did not live up to our much anticipated 5 star luxury break. The room was spacious and comfortable, albeit a little dated with the furnishings and plumbing in need of a makeover; 30 minutes to a fill...

The hotel is everything you could need. Great location, decor of hotel amazing, big size rooms, staff were brilliant and the breakfasts wow what a choice.

Definitely recommend...

This hotel looks slightly dingy on the outside (black soot on the building) but inside is very nice, and has a great location with beautiful views. The rooms are spacious, with balconies, and modern bathrooms and amenities. The decor in the rooms and common areas is a bit dated. It says it is a 5 star hotel - I would...

My wife and I stayed here on a very recent visit to Malta. the breakfast buffet was superb. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and the bed comfortable. Wifi was available in the hotel and its pool area. The hotel spa and gym facilities were very nice

This is a classic style hotel. The size makes it difficult to use as the distances are long to get anywhere and the elevators are slow, the situation itself is very good, just a stroll from the main old town entry. At this moment there are many street improvements around the hotel, which is a little annoying to walk, not...

We arrived on a rainy Friday so decided to have lunch in the bar which was very good. As it rained all day, we opted to have dinner in the hotel. We chose the buffet menu at £32 per person. The buffet food was average and proved a rather expensive mistake. The white wine wasn't chilled so all in all,...
