9/10 Fantastic

21 July 2017


Stayed at standard room. A/C worked well (what is important during the summer). Breakfast fine, good choice, but every day the same, Room cleaned every day. Friendly staff. Poor beach club. Dirty pool. Location: very close to the sea, bus stop 3 minutes walking, Slema-Valetta Fery ~5 minutes walking, but far away from sandy beaches. It's more likely city hotel

The best thing about my stay was...

Clean but basic
2/10 Okay

fawlty noisy towers.......no facilities, false advertising

Awful hotel, no pool, no spa, nothing on site.....false advertising, all facilities are at fortina hotel and you have to pay for everythingg even the sunbeds and pool. My room looked nothing like pictures at all so assume pictures advertised are of a better hotel. Breakfast was awful, food stone cold, no plates, dirty cups, uncleared tables, bed in my room was covered in long black hairs (im blonde). Nouse at night was dreadful, no way to sleep at this hotel, booked 4 nights checked out after 2 nights and went to another hotel at more expense.

Great location, Helpfull Staff but don't expect the Ritz

Located between Sliema Marina and promanade to St Julians. Clean, food of a decent standard, rooms spotless, you get what you pay for with the Plevna, ideal base for getting around and Beach Club is a nice bonus. Stayed here two years running now and would go back again.

Stay away...Avoid...Poor value

In the 2 years since my first stay, this place has gotten a "fur coat, but still has no pants". They covered the lobby with faux marble, but beyond that seem unable to provide a standard, safe, comfortable, value-for-money guest experience. I was very generous about shortcomings before, but there has been no progress -- and this time the Manager even insulted me personally. 1. FOOD: AMBIENCE, VALUE, HEALTH Of course, no chef can get it right all the time. And low budget equals Jamie Oliver anti-style "turkey twizzler" stuff. There is rapid, incessant monotonic jungle drumming with your Breakfast, and similar tannoy din at other times. There is CCTV in the Dining Room! Why ever? Lunches were simple bar food, served there, i.e., off-the-shelf things. At my first Dinner, a chap sent his soup back, saying aloud and curtly: 'It's cold'. At a lunch, a chap came back to the counter with his wrap, commenting that it was but "full of onions and bitter rocket.'' One couple made clear to the waitress that the "chips" were just sliced potatoes, soggy and soaked in oil, and could not finish them. I couldn't either. At a breakfast a chap took his glass to the waiter to say that the "juice "was only water. In a battered or fried item, the coating was of greater quantity than the item itself. Dishes badly pre-made, like the entire pan of pasta on the steam line that was baked hard as leather, were still served to you -- "buffet" does not mean you serve yourself. "Ice cream": a metal dish with the scoops frozen solid to it. Health: ill-effects included stomach problems, requiring one man to cut short a day out; he suspects the clams and fake crab sticks in the antipasto. A couple spoke of the fever confining him to bed-- though whether from the food is uncertain. Sanitation? I found that the WC off the lobby contained a sink stopped up with dirty water; the washing items were two small well-used slabs of bar soap, and a cloth handtowel -- in this day and age. It's cleaner to go unwashed than use these bacteria-laden items! FOOD is NOT a strong point, nor good value for money. But I guess they think you are paying peanuts. 2. BATHING FACILITIES: a. Toilet: needs to be pumped several times forcefully for a proper flush. How would folk without strong wrists, or with arthritis manage. Leave it for the maid? For men, the toilet seat will not stay up. b. Shower: is also from the last century, with water spurting out as much from where the showerhead connects to the rubber hose, as for the showering. It always squirts apart, leaving you in the cold while you try to shove them together. When was the last time you saw a rubber hose for a shower, rather than the circular silvery sleeve-type covering it? After the Doorknob fell, and then the Curtain Rod -- you hesitate to add the Shower to the maintenance list, and so just put up with shrivering and struggling them back together. The Flooring is slippery tile, and there are no Hand Rails. So, back to the summer camp days of cold, rough shower blocks. 3. TV: antique, smallest 12", requiring 20/20 vision due to its distance from the bed. Only 4 channels -- BBC, CNN, 2 foreign language. 4. REPAIRS, DECREPIT FABRIC & FURNISHINGS a. Doorknob fell off the first day. It took 1 1/2 days to have it reattached. I was returning to the room when I saw the chap walking away, dressed in track suit, trainers, carrying 2 shopping sacks -- as though just off the street. I hailed him and asked: "You're the hotel maintenance man...don't you have a key?" He said rudely and pointed: "You have the key." Of course, it's my room . Strange policy that they don't trust him with a key. b. Then the Curtain Rod collapsed, but that only took a day to repair. c. The Room Doors are flimsy thin boards. At one I saw some students peeking through the slats -- and it was not their own room. d. When a couple reported a stopped up sink, the "repair" was the permanent removal of the stopper itself, depriving them use of the sink. e. The ceiling tiles immediately above the pillow area of the bed showed large expanse of prominent water stains. Not reassuring. f. You could go to Breakfast at 0700 and come back to find the Maid (her term) already at work; in fact I found both her and the Housekeeper in my room at about 0730. I mean, she is very nice -- but had I known, I would have put things away. 5. HEATER: The antiquated unit was blowing Cold air; upon complaining, the waiter came and fiddled with a remote he brought and took away, as you are not trusted with it. Thereafter, you and the room could be cold, but "the heater says no". It determines "when", and only for as long as it wants, even though you and the room itself are still cold. Very unpleasant, not comfortable. This, on a holiday? 6. MANAGEMENT: from the Fawlty Towers School. They have a history, as in other reviews, for maligning guests. I emailed 6 days before arrival, and verified the WiFi in the lounge. a. THURSDAY -- Wifi connected properly for my iPad, less than 30 days old. b. FRIDAY -- in morning, hotel had its provider Ozone 'reboot', or etc., their equipment. Henceforth, no connection (for entire stay). Hotel confirmed they were still trying to work it out with Ozone. c. SATURDAY -- in morning, still no connection. Mr DV, Manager, said take it to iCenter, the Apple Reseller to check out iPad. Jonathan checked it, it picked up Wifi there, and was perfect. I reported back to Mr DV, i.e., it's Ozone's fiddling on FRIDAY that negated the WiFi provision of THURSDAY. Wouldn't he want them to make whole the situation so all his guests could benefit -- especially a repeat customer? Reluctantly, after more irrelevant "the WiFi serves everyone but you", he agreed to contact Ozone. At 1830 Ozone tech Robert and I 1) checked my iPad, 2) was able to get WiFi via a paid Ozone hotspot card, but not the hotel WiFi, and 3) were Not able to connect with the hotel WiFi even on his smart phone. So it was what they did on FRIDAY, NOT my pc. He verified with his office that someone would definitely come to fix the hotel equipment the next day, though a SUNDAY. d. SUNDAY -- came and went. e. MONDAY -- in morning, still no WiFi. I wrote to Mr DV (because on SATURDAY he admonished me not to approach him directly) about these events. As management, wouldn't he want determine what his supplier Ozone was able to do yesterday? When we met, he regurgitated how there was WiFi, etc -- but reluctantly said he would follow-up with Ozone. I repeated: I was able to get WiFi on THURSDAY, and I am still able to in shops, the 2 large malls and Apple Store, but in hotel only with a paid hotspot card, not via their equipment. So my pc is alright; it was due to Ozone. f. TUESDAY -- by noon he still had not done anything! Rather than even make a phone call to Ozone, he chose to deprive a paying, repeat guest: "WiFi works here, check your computer, you're the problem": The Fawlty Towers' "nothing to do with me" excuse. The worst Abuse was him calling me a LIAR: "It's only what you tell me, what tech Robert said, i.e., about promising that someone would come Sunday, and that he could not get WiFi here on his phone", "I wasn't there", "How I know what you say is true". Why didn't he just call them? Will he accuse as a LIAR the next person who cannot connect? At this insult, as a professional I realised I was dealing with a cognitively-dysfunctional personality, lost the will to live, did a volte-face and walked away...something that in my decades in the mental health/chaplaincy field I can't ever remember doing to anyone. CONCLUSION: 1. The ROOM is cold, drab, ill-lit, tired, cheerless. 2. The FOOD is merely average, with frequent faults. I rarely give the lowest rating, but on this second visit I have no choice. This facility suits the 18-30's and/or those who expect to rough it, go on the cheap, are physically fit with plenty insurance and their own gear. Thereby, when things fail, you can blame yourself for the Fawlty Towers Management stonewalling, and perhaps even calling you a Liar. Others who expect value for money and fulfilled promises, who want safety, courteous treatment by management, and standard comfort -- Stay Away, Go Elsewhere. STAFF: I wish the best for the room Maid VALERIE, who was very nice; SANDRA and MARY ROSE, the Receptionists, lovely, and ever so helpful; NORVIC, the waiter, hardworking; and MARIE, the barmaid, super, very kind and so personable. I am comforted to know that they are so proficient that they can parachute anywhere in the hospitality industry and make a success of it.

The best thing about my stay was...

I'm glad I got a low price for a not-very-pleasant holiday.

One of the best in Malta - a gem of a hotel

The best thing about this hotel is the fantastic customer service and friendliness by all the staff - a rare occurrence these days. This is closely followed by the good food and cleanliness and also the central position making it easy to get to transport, shops and the beach. Nothing was too much trouble and they dealt with every request with politeness and were always very helpful. The buffet breakfast consisted of a huge choice and there was something for everyones taste. The rooms were always cleaned well as were the public areas of the hotel. The only downside were the hordes of italian students that seem to be a permanent fixture. However, the hotel does do their best to keep them from causing too much bother and we never found it a problem. We would definately stay there again especially as we have stayed at so many other places and have been very disappointed.

The best thing about my stay was...

Brilliant customer service.
