We have just returned from a very pleasant five day stay at the Diplomat. We found the staff to be friendly and extremely helpful, the rooms were spotless and the beds very comfortable. Breakfast and evening meals were excellent with plenty of choice. The Maltese evening was particularly enjoyable with many Maltese dishes to sample. We will definitely be returning.

I have just returned from a week at the Diplomat, staying on a half board basis, something I would not normally do but it was my first visit to Malta and had no idea what to expect. The restaurant is a self service buffet but I would suggest that the food is more on the level of a 1950's factory...

The hotel had a good location and well supplied by local buses. The staff were friendly and the hotel very clean and breakfast was good. But very disappointed with the noise levels - we had to sleep the whole week with our ear plugs in even when we moved rooms further to the back of the hotel.

Just returned from 11 nights at The Diplomat (part work, part leisure). I would certainly recommend it, especially for the following reasons: location; sea views; price; transport links; friendly staff; cleanliness; gym. Having travelled through most of Malta, I think the Diplomat is the best located hotel on the island. It is on the seafront in the upmarket Sliema district,...

We booked a week half board at this hotel with a sea view room included. First impressions were OK but it doesn't really have the appeal of the photographs on their web site.
