Was visiting Malta for a course. The hotel is located near my course venue. It has a very beautiful view of the harbour. The room was spacious and comfortable. Housekeeping did a great job ensuring I had a comfortable place to return to every evening. The location is close to

Don’t get this confused with the far superior British Suites. They are both in the same building, but the British Hotel was very basic. The room was dark and outdated, which wasn’t actually a major problem, until a very large cockroach made itself at home on my second to last

I am sorry about your experience however I am sure that the insect you managed has nothing to do if you stay in the hotel or in our suites which are in the same building. We offer rooms and suites at the same location. It depends on the requirements that the client wants to have and is ready to pay for but I assure you these things are sometimes beyond control especially when one leaves open windows . The extra charge that you paid was simply for upgrading from a standard room to a superior suite room.

What is the food like these days?
Not sure - have not been back in 2017. I suspect though that your best bet is to eat out.

Dear Ms Katti I thank you for your understanding and comments and am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Like you said there are many places for breakfast ,lunch or dinner near the hotel so it should not be a problem . The rooms are still being rented as the refurbishing is being done only in public areas behind closed doors and do not affect most of the rooms. I still would like to excuse us for any inconvenience but after all it is being done to improve services and facilities for our future guests . It will be worth the wait Im sure ..thanks again David Montebello
