Second time at this beautiful hotel. Positioned perfectly overlooking the harbour and view of Valetta. Rooms are lovely, had a Superior Twin with Sea View and balcony, very big, very clean, large bathroom with wet room shower this time, previously traditional bath, lovely fluffy white towels and good toiletries. Breakfast in the Regatta Restaurant offers full range of hot and cold choices, since Covid all served by staff, wide selection of coffee made barista style plus juices and fresh fruit. The lobby bar restaurant open at lunchtime and evenings has comprehensive menu, ate there a couple of times this trip, highly recommend the fruity chicken curry and pizza bianche. This hotel is ideally situated for the ferry to Valetta just 200m along the promenade, a vast number of international restaurants, local buses to go anywhere on the Island even to Gozo ferry port, staff are very helpful, nothing is too much trouble. We booked a taxi to return to the airport and were driven by a lovely gentleman who we discovered worked at the Hotel on security but since Covid he sometimes chauffeurs clients to and from the airport, he told us how good the Hotel owners were maintaining all their staff throughout Covid when all undertook different tasks such as decorating and refurbishment of the hotel, very knowledgeable on Malta so we learnt some local things too. We will only stay at The Waterfront Hotel when visiting Malta it is classed as 4 Star but should be 5, highly recommend.

2/5 Poor

Travelled with group
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We were very disappointed with our stay. The pictures look 10 times better than the reality. The bedrooms are quite rundown with old carpet and outdated amenities. We will not be returning and we will not recommend to other travellers. There are plenty of other hotels in the area with better quality and more affordable pricing. Cons: - Uncomfortable mattress - The pillows are literally falling apart. They probably have not been replaced for years. - Linen and pillowcases smelt like sweat. When I complained to the reception, they said it was due to mildew. They did replace the linen after we complained. - Claimed to be a 4 star hotel but we were given towels with holes. Not even at home, I would keep towels with holes. - Low quality breakfast - We were not able to use pool facilities beyond 20:00 eventhough they stated it was opened til 21:00. If the early closure is due to COVID, they should at least inform guests and put a notification up for the early closing. - One of the guests is pregnant and was not feeling very well upon checkout. We asked for slight extension to the checkout time especially as it was raining the entire day, but was told that it's not possible unless we pay 40 euros. I find them lacking in empathy. Pros: - Appears to be covid friendly. Hand sanitizer was available everywhere including in the lift - Great location. The bus station is just across the road

Sea-view with balcony room worth the extra. Pretty quiet at night despite being on a busy street. Bus for airport just 1 block away. We couldn’t take advantage of the free breakfast because of early flight. They did give us a to-go bag but it wasn’t worth the calories—sandwich with 1 slice of ham & cheese, very stale croissant, bruised apple and yogurt but no spoon.
