Exceptional hotel
Pros: 1. The hotel lent us a couple of universal adapters for our stay (free of charge) as we didn't realize Malta were on the UK power plugs and not European! 2. We hired a driver for the day for our group (220 euros) to see the main island of Malta and he was amazing. 3. The buffet breakfast is out of this world. So much variety, good quality, and stations to make onelettes, pancakes and waffles. Cons: 1. The outside of the hotel looks dated and dusty, but the inside is great 2. The service staff at the Tiki bar (adjoining the pool) were terrible. The first time we ate their attitude was rude and unhelpful. The food was not only the most expensive in Malta but also the worst quality. Drinks here are fine but I would not recommend eating here. Another day we were in the pool less than 10m from our towels, cameras, phones which were placed on an empty chair (the entire bar was empty of patrons so I didn't think it would be a problem), but a staff member took our things, moved them and hid them behind something, then when I asked if they had seen anyone take our belongings (thinking they were stolen) she rudely and bluntly said "this is bit the hotel. This is a bar/restaurant and not the hotel swimming pool bar". The bar is located right on the edge of the pool. Was not happy with her justifications or rudeness and lack of consideration about theft concerns

hreat hotel,location
Shower very close to toilet and hand basin limiting ability to open door very far. Breakfast great, pools, indoor and outdor, and gym good. Staff very friendly and helpful. Large number of steps to climb to Valletta or nus can be booked but limited to 10am and 6pm only for transfer. Bus ticket very cheap for week with unlimited use, and busrs easy to use, some were crowded at times. Would stay here again

A week in the GrandHotel Excelsior.
We stayed at the Grand Hotel Excelsior for 7 nights, the first 4 nights with breakfast. I was impressed with check-in - we arrived at 1200 and the room was ready about 20 minutes later. We had not paid for a sea view and we had a room on the 10th (top) floor with good views over-looking the steps at the back. Each room has a small balcony and ours got afternoon sun, not that we were there in the afternoons. I had read some negative comments about the hotel. Yes the outside stonework of the building could do with a clean (though that looks to be happening). Breakfast was well presented, very good and not busy, unlike some reviewers had said. It was a lovely area for breakfast. The other whinge I read was about the steps. There are 88 steps up the back of the hotel but you do can easily walk up the slope instead, as my husband sometimes did. I found the steps pleasant. The area to each side has plants and the steps are not continuous. I went to the indoor pool area 5 times. The pool is pleasant but not suited to proper swimming. However the surrounding area was quiet enough for me to do my yoga without feeling self -conscious. Also a nice warm place to sit on a sun bed and read a book. Our room was bigger than I expected with a large bed. The bathroom was good too. All the staff were very pleasant, attentive and helpful, from reception to restaurant (we only ate breakfast) to cleaning staff. There was live music in the evenings from 2030, usually a singer or guitarist.

Very Good8.0
Definitely gets a four out of five
I have just returned from a week's holiday on my own. The pool/spa/gym is very good. The rooms are spacious but a bit dated. Staff were generally pleasant, polite and helpful.I would say it was good but not outstanding. The coffee was awful.
