The swimming facilities, the room, the fridge in the room (very thoughtful),the comfortable bed,the good air con, the breakfast,and the staff, who were so helpful and friendly..
The stairs up to the city,(it was HOT!) the coffee in the main breakfast room (the Admiral's Landing coffee was very good) and a maid who wanted to do our room at 8a.m.- twice running. (we were on holiday and we are not in the first flush of youth!!!)
Extremely pleased with the concierge desk staff ( Mario and Loraine) they offered the best suggestions regarding restaurants and optional trips to take. Also enjoyed the positioning of the hotel, close to the centwr yet offering an oasis of peace and solitude. Lovely pool. Food at all the restaurants was amazing as well.( dinner and snacks)
The Room service staff did not always change our bed linen, and NEVER changed our bath robes.- although the room overall cleanliness was up to standard No Gluten free options for breakfast, but eggs and fruit. *DO NOT purchase the day trip to Sicily as the whole trip proved to be a logostics mess, and is not worthy of a 5 star establishment. ( the driver in charge of our transportation back to the hotel tried to pass us on to other drivers, having had lost us in the crowd, no AC on tour coaches)
View over the Marina
Service was laborious and slow. Ovepriced.
Friendliness of the staff, ther location of the hotel in regard to the city of Valetta. the options for breackfast and the swimming pool and the beach. The evening entretaining is good.
Only one of the consierges was not very helpfull, nor approchable. and that to get in and out of the Hotel you have to go to the front steps,
Top of the class
The location The friendly and helpful staff The attractive pool area overlooking the harbour The excellent poolside service The spacious accommodation
The disturbance caused by the staff setting up furniture and decorations for evening wedding receptions at the poolside from as early as 4 pm.
The staff, the restaurants, the ambiance, the comfort, the close location to the bus terminus and Valletta.
Just a little bit phased by the number of steps, albeit relatively shallow, from the road to the entrance.
Location size of room and bathroom Choice of food Friendly and helpful staff Pools Spa
The staff were very helpful and knowledgable. The evening buffet is worth a visit. Location is great.
A shortage of corkscrews, no bath mats, inconsistent and poor breakfast overall.
The pool facilities and the bedroom,liked the fact there was a fridge for our use also.Breakfast was very varied and good.
The coffee at breakfast.
Outdoor pool (huge and beautifully kept up); indoor spa pool (almost as large and open 24 hours) Large room Very large terrace Magnificent views Helpful staff Own beach and sea swimming area
This hotel ticked all the boxes for us. Could not praise the staff highly enough from the porters, especially Heathcliff, to the housekeepers to concierge staff. Waiters were efficient and friendly. The choice of eating areas was great. You did not have to have a formal meal if you didn't want to. As our trip was to celebrate our special birthdays this year, the concierge staff went to the trouble of Champagne and chocolates on arrival and we found our bed covered on rose petals, a really lovely touch.
Bit of a climb to Valletta but this was a minor inconvenience.
Nice room, very friendly staff in the main, good location, pleasant environment, great facilities, free bottled water
Awful stewed coffee at breakfast, the famous 88 steps to get out, mass canteen breakfast feel and queues, somewhat overpriced, slow & inefficient lifts, overly complex towel hire arrangements
Situation food Friendliness of staff Facilities Comfort of beds
Having to pay deposit for use of pool towels. Did nt see need for this.
We really loved the view and the options to dine in different restaurants. The pool was wonderful to cool off in after a hot day of sightseeing.
A little bit of a climb up to Valletta. Our shower door could only open one third as it hit the basin - only minor problem really, everything else was lovely.
Unbeatable position; triple swimming (inside,n huge outside and sea access -all warm 23°). Incredibly professional attention paid to all - by all staff. Check out Justine and Stefan's smiles and service at the water edge restaurant. 3 weeks sun, sea and yes, more sun !!!
The facilities, Staff friendliness and the ambience were supberb. The proximity to Valletta was great,
I just did not like that i requested a double bed and got twin beds. It clearly made a difference to me what type of bed i had otherwise i would not have requested a particular type.
Great views Walking distance to city
Dirty sheets Dirty carpets Dirty breakfast table and high hair..horrible coffee! Unprofessional receptionist who was going to over charge and didn't understand English well Disorganization during breakfast No iron in room..you have to call for one. No shade in outside pool area.
In practice evrerything, but we were especially happy with the private beach.
The majority of the staff were so courteous and pleasant. The atmosphere is of people who know what their job is and do it very well. The pool and beach areas were great, the buffet dinners were absolutely top class in terms of choice and quality.
We had to move room due to a maintenance issue however the next room smelled of cigarette smoke and the carpet was very stained. It did not impact greatly as we were near the end of the week and the hotel was booked out, Glad it was not my first experience of the hotel though.
Excelsior is very well situated, close enough to the city centre and yet at the sea side. So you can swim in the sea or relax in the very well accomodated pool area. We had a room with seaside view, which I can warmly recommend. The room (+bathroom) is spacious and very well equipped, the bedding is excellent. The Wifi access is very good. The staff are very professional. The breakfast buffet offers a great variety of choices.
At a five star hotel I would expect a bathroom mat. There was one the first two days and then it disappeared. When I asked for a new one, it was explained that there were not enough bathroom mats for the whole hotel (five star ??). Fortunately a helpful chamber maid, actually serving other rooms, provided us with a new mat at the end of our stay. The first evening we tried the à la carte restaurant. We were not impressed. It actually is a large buffet, which is not really à la carte. The breakfast buffet offers fresh fruit every morning, but we've had fruit of far better quality in hotels of a lesser rating
Food is very good Location is fabulous Staff are very helpful and friendly
was turned away from breakfast despite there being empty tables (I challenged and was let in) could not get twin stroller through room door - had to collapse each time we entered/exited the room
Every aspect within the hotel was good.
The hotel is built halfway up the hill, and this is not made clear. Furthermore, if one wished to walk down to the ferry the outlet from the Tea Lounge was not available, which meant that one had to walk up, a considerable distance before walking down to the ferry.
Air-conditioning works badly, no good sleep, because there is no air to breath. WC does not work properly even after calling plumer.
