Reviewed 14 October 2018

We stayed here for 3 nights and weren't impressed. It's like a holiday camp style of hotel and poor quality for the money in comparison to other places we stayed on the island. Our room was spacious but dingey and smelt of stale smoke. The single beds were hard and had paper thin pillows. The bathroom was dated but shower was fine. Staff were mixed- our check in was very poor with the man ignoring us initially but when we checked out the lady was more friendly. The location is good though as right on main road in Gzira which is handy for buses in to Valletta. We went to the rooftop pool which was ok but very busy and a few screaming toddlers running about which wasn't ideal. I wouldn't recommend a stay here- forgo the rooftop pool and stay somewhere better!

We opted to stay at Bayview due to location rather than facilities. On arrival staff were lovely and our check in was swift and we were in our room within minutes which was great as it was late in the evening . On first sight, it’s fair to say the hotel is a bit tired with a quirky lay out as it must incorporate a few buildings but it grows on you with passing days . We were on floor 3 rm 733 with a balcony and side view of the bay. It was exactly what we’d booked , so no issues . Our rooms were cleaned every day with fresh towels etc . Really impressed with housekeeping . My only initial concern was it was almost opposite the lift doors but to be fair this was not an issue at all & we had no extra noise . The room itself is basic , but again , it had more than we thought it would have as it had a small kitchenette with fridge , kettle , stove crockery etc . We only ever used the fridge and kettle . The balcony was small but enough to get fresh air & a bit of a view with seats and small table . Very pleasant to sit in to read or relax . We didn’t use the roof pool at all but we heard others say it is lovely . Our only negative would be breakfast . The dining room is fine , staff lovely but the actual hot food is not very appetising . My OH who likes a good hot breakfast had it first day and all other days opted for cereal and yoghurt as it was hot breakfast that isn’t really hot . I persevered with the hot buffet a few more days but it’s just not appetising although others around were tucking in so maybe just personal taste . The scrambled egg was nice but sausages are more like pale hot dogs .Only 2 days of 7 mushrooms were an option . There was hard boiled eggs , tomato and beans . Cold options included ham cheese & salad . Looked nice . Coffee and tea are from self service machines which are ok. The fruit juice machine is a hit or miss as often all we got was water . We asked each time to get machine filled again which staff did . As breakfast is a big part of our holiday experience this is the only aspect I felt needed improved. Overall , this hotel is superbly placed , staffed with lovely people and I’d recommend for anyone on a budget here to enjoy a nice holiday .

Very good hotel rooms okay plenty of power points beds comfy towers changed daily and beds made daily too good shower with plenty of hot water good powerful hairdryer upstairs the rooftop pool has amazing views of silema bay and Valletta plenty of sun beds which are very comfy the only downside is that the food served at breakfast wasn’t too great I lived on bread and marmalade all week as I did try the full English but found it tasteless

Many thanks for the rating, we hope you enjoyed your stay.

We're glad you found the rooftop pool to be delightful, we think its very relaxing, with its numerous sunbeds, indoor and outdoor pool, Jacuzzi and snackbar.

It's unfortunate that you found the breakfast to be lacking, we are planning on improving it in the future.

We look forward to accommodating you again, thank you for visiting Malta.

The biggest pro has to be the location. We had a seaview room overlooking the Three Cities-wonderful. But note that these rooms have a main road down below. All the staff were friendly. Things against the hotel are a poor choice of buffet food. No fried eggs, just scrambled and only one dessert. Salad bar is scant too. Pillows are a disgrace- flat and lumpy.

Room tip: Go out and buy a fresh pillow if you don't want to wake up with a headache every morning.
