This hotel is for most part "value for the money". Nice and clean, beautifull view from the little terrasse over Grand Harbour, and the breakfast was fine with lot of variations. BUT the most important on a hotel is the beds. And they are really terrible. We do not understand that such and important issue is handle with so little...

Disgusted by the service given from the manager who should know better how to treat customers and guests. No idea of 2 star hospitality let alone 3 star. Pity that hotel management trust these people!

My rooms furnishings were basic and cheap and awful, the two single beds did not go together properly and four out of five nights there were not good sleeps at all. Breakfast really not good, cold once it had gone from server to plate. Only orange juice and that was terrible quality. Coffee so bad I had to buy a...

Ok, so we thought the restaurant would be good for a lunchtime meal / meeting. Sadly, the food took too long to be served. The service wasn't exactly up to scratch. When the food served, it was warm at the best. Flavour was ok. Would I go back? No.

It's true, the view from the balcony is beautiful But the room had the charm of a dormatory from the 50's and considering the service, our travel guide was right: the waitress made "few efforts to please".

After booking a 6 night spring break at this hotel I read some disquieting reviews about the Hotel British. I found them totally unjustified. As a budget hotel it was hard to fault. Yes it is old, but rooms were spotless, beds comfortable, staff great, restaurant excellent - wonderful views across Grand Harbour, breakfast very agreeable, location ideal. My only...

It was my first time there and would go again. Good food and choice of wine. The staff were friendly and the service was excellent. Views add to the relaxing and enjoyable experience. Will go again and will recommend to friends.

Apart from the stunning views of the Grand Harbour, our room was spacious , clean and very comfortable. Staff were all very polite and helpful and breakfast was top notch. An excellent...

Spent an excellent week here from March 6th, studying the Great Siege of Malta. Lovely people, fantastic staff. I left an item of sentimental value behind in my room when I checked out and the team could have not been more helpful in getting the item back to me. Great service and will definitely recommend to everyone!

The best view! You have a terrace and a view on Grand Harbor - amazing! The rooms are spacious, but very simple, with the typical smell of...humidity, I guess. It's not too bad, but still unpleasant. Furniture is very, very basic too... A renovation is needed, obviously. As usual on Malta, there are no carpets, but they don't offer any...
