of our customers rated this property good or excellent.

Mr Dennett, 31 October 2018


Mr Wilderspin, 30 September 2018

Accommodation was excellent but a) the position in Valletta meant there are quite a few steps to walk up to the main road from the hotel which may not be suitable for older or infirm guests; b) once at the main road the lack of pavement makes the crossing not the safest.

Mr Coates, 21 September 2018

Hotel Excelsior was wonderful. Definitely 5 star in every respect. Food, room, staff. Without fault. We would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Mrs Wadsworth, 28 August 2018

Even though an early check-in had been requested by Hays, the Hotel was not able to accommodate us saying it was our fault because we hadn't booked direct with them and instead had gone via a travel agent! Our room overlooked a car park which was also the staff entrance. The bed covers were musty. I will not be staying there again.

Mr Richards, 22 July 2018

Absolutely excellent cannot fault anything, Room great staff very friendly and helpfull food great I would recommend this hotel and we would certainly stay again

Mr Sutton, 14 June 2018

A most welcoming hotel with a service that lived up to its star rating.

Ms Renney, 29 May 2018

Should not be a five star hotel - too big needs a refurb to bring it up to a five star hotel

Mrs Pattison, 13 May 2018

Superb. My friend and I had stayed there last year, and it was just as good as ever.

Mr Phillips, 21 November 2017


Mrs Pickford, 20 November 2017

Beautiful public rooms and spacious bedroom. Very clean throughout. Good location for us but some guests would find the 88 steps a problem getting into and out of the hotel. Breakfast was something of a bun fight and the coffee was terrible. The service in the bar area in particular was not always what you would expect from a 5* hotel.

Mr Fitton, 20 June 2017

Good location, excellent facilities, friendly and efficient staff, wide choice of lovely food.

Mr Daniels, 02 June 2017

The hotel was fantastic could not fault it all the facilities and staff made that part of the holiday amazing however Thomas Cook were a disgrace

Mrs Cowans, 01 June 2017

Really good hotel with excellent staff.

Mr Warwick, 21 May 2017

First class in every way

Mr King, 15 May 2017

good clean but is a bit dated for a 5 star hotel, its showing it age, needs a bit of money spent on it.

Mrs Pattison, 30 April 2017

This wonderful hotel with their delightful staff exceeded expectations. I can't wait to return there!

Mr Rust, 02 April 2017

Good value

Mr O'toole, 31 March 2017

Room very good. Staff helpful and pleasant.
Dining room service abysmal.
88 steps from reception in order to reach street level. Would not recommend for people with mobility problems!

Mr Gaston, 29 December 2016

Of expected standard. Plumbing showed some small Mediterranean eccentricities. Hotel info should make clear steep climb to street level on a marble staircase which can become slippery.
