        The location in Sliema was perfect. The Seaview was beautiful. The location and view (Seaview rooms) are the hotels saving grace.

        The air conditioning never worked and we were told that it was the chillers and that it would be fixed but during our whole week stay it never was fixed. The lobby and other public areas were nicely air conditioned but the rooms were not. The bathroom towels were old and frayed. The mini bar in the room (which is actually a little cooler type refridgerator was not working either and leaking water. The fitness area was a unacceptable and was in a musty old area of their basement floor.

        A nice hotel, good value for money. Really nice location, handy for walking, buses, shops and access to nice places. Lovely views and attentive staff.

        For me it was fine. Perhaps a little dated in decor and ambiance but it was friendly and rooms were fine. I would return and enjoy another holiday there.
