Fairly near the seafront but not too near the noisy square.. Good service. Clean and well appointed. Good value for money food. Wide enough range to satisfy the majority.

First taste of Maltese food .... absolutely delicious. We were starving hungry so ordered starters ... the starters were the size​ of some mains so we struggled to finish the meals. Lovely traditional food, reasonable in price with excellent hospitality. Would definitely visit again :-)

Does not look much from outside but not bad looking inside. Menu is good and food and service were both of a good standard and good value too. Certainly better than some more 'popular' places closer to the square.

Hello The hotel is very friendly and if you request a room with a balcony you would get one. You could email the hotel direct. Also the time of year you are going the hotel will not be full.
