"Wonderfully positioned for sightseeing in Valetta"
We went for 3 nights in November deliberately, so that we could sightsee at a cooler time of year. In the 3 days we saw most of the sights ( but the War Museum being closed was a disappointment) We also enjoyed the good standard of the restaurants.
A half day visit to Mdina, the old capital, is worth the effort and go on the public bus, only one and a half Euros for an all day ticket!
The Xara Palace was a beautiful hotel, the staff were so helpful and the hotel exceeded our expectations. Mdina in our opinion was the best place to go for a quiet peaceful holiday. We visited for the Mdina Classic Car Grand Prix which was fantastic and after the day to return to such a peaceful hotel with luxurious decor was the icing on the cake. Felt quite sad when we left the hotel as we would have loved to stay longer. Mdina is a beautiful Silent City with some lovely restaurants and wine bars and even though it was a little busy during the day with 'tourists' it was still peaceful. A romantic place to go for couples if you like it quiet and peaceful.

Facilities and staff were everything you would expect from a five star hotel with an exceptionally good rate for the low season. There was a wide choice of eating options and although you would expect high prices in such a hotel, they were not significantly different to those in Valletta city centre e.g. Giovannis. We were warned that we may not like Malta but we found the whole week interesting. The city was clean except after a fun run on Sunday and this was quickly cleared up by the evening. The bus services were cheap and excellent.
General Manager invited all new arrivals to meet him and the staff (including backroom staff) in the bar for drinks and nibbles so they must keep in touch with what the visitor thinks.

I stayed in Mellieha which was a 60-90 minute bus ride from Valletta so a little far away but easy transport links if you are happy to travel.
Nice and quiet which is what I wanted.
Free wifi in reception area only, would have been good in rooms too.
Overall lovely staff - very friendly. Nice pool. Food was buffet half board and very good throughout my stay.

A lovely large room, with balcony towards the sea, fully stocked kitchen with gas stove/hob and large fridge, fan, wifi and air conditioning for small extra charge (we didn't need as had a good breeze with balcony door open and using the provided wall fan). 10 minute walk to beach, buses, numerous restaurants and attractions. Cheap (and delicious) pizza restaurant directly downstairs. A great place to stay for those on a budget.

We had a huge room at the top of the house. There was an amazing view. The jacuzzi bath was in the bedroom. There were no mod cons such as a t.v or brand new furniture but there was something relaxing and different about the residence. We had the nice outdoor pool to ourselves all day and loved the hotels restaurant that was nearby. We had two great meals there. Take some time to walk down to the main village and see the church and maybe have a cheap drink with the locals in the band club or the football club. There are communal fridges to keep your drinks cool and a nice local shop to buy them in at very cheap prices. We cant wait to go back.

We booked this place to stay based on the reviews and was not disappointed, it was exactly as described a truly impressive restoration done by Frank the owner who made us very welcome and extremely helpful. Valetta is a beautiful city with plenty of places to eat, visit and shop. We had a lovely holiday and have already recommended staying here to friends.
