A comfortable stay in a good location !
Our second visit to the hotel and a really nice stay in a good hotel very close to Valletta. Everything was good except some of the bar staff were clearly new recruits and were very 'green' about taking orders etc. One thing visitors need to note the hotel is located down quite a steep walk from the city centre it is not ideal for people with access difficulties, we encountered one or two people really struggling.
