Our group often organizes meals at this hotel. The food is plentiful and well cooked, and there is always a lot of food to choose from. There was a good choice of antipasto, although there were no aubergines, the two choices of pasta were both nice, and the meats were nice, the fish I did not taste, but I was told that it was nice. Also the price includes wine, beer, soft drinks tea and coffee, you drink as much as you like,
I don’t really know where the many positive review coming from. slept on there for 2 nights and woke up by a damn fire alarm for 3 times. Everyone was worry in about and asking around. They only said that was a problem with the smoke detector. PRANK
I booked 6 employees into this hotel and I received 6 complaints advising me how dirty it is, there is no WiFi in the rooms, and staff don’t care. I have made a complaint and I have received no reply. Do not consider it stay in this hotel
The room was alright, but for the rest is was all pretty poor. Poolside was all very old, breakfast was disgusting. Staff weren’t nice at all, and there was a lot of noise from the outside, starting at 8am through to 10pm. The only thing that was really great, was the location. It’s right in the middle of some nice locations, like clubs, beaches and restaurants
I’ll start off with the good things, room was nice it seemed newly renovated, we got fresh towels & beds were made everyday. That’s about it. On arrival, we were “greeted” by a receptionist who seemed like she didn’t want to be there at all, not welcoming whatsoever. AFTER we paid, she decided to inform us that the outdoor pool was broken, without any apology, as if it wasn’t a big deal. She said it’s in maintancence before the summer season and when I said it’s summer season now she made a rude comment that “it’s not summer, it’s spring”. Their pool was the main reason why we chose this hotel and it being broken was a great disappointment. I think we should have gotten information about it prior to arrival and not after checking in or at least an apology, we got neither. It did end up opening, but for the first few days we had to pay to use pools in other hotels. However, comparing to other places I have stayed in for the same price, the pool area wasn’t great. Sunbeds were old, uncomfortable and dirty. When passing the reception I don’t recall any of the staff saying hello to us, which made us feel very unwelcome. On arrival, we had to pay a deposit on key card & she said we will get it back during check out. She gave me a receipt but since everyone has to pay a deposit (I obviously had the key card to prove it) I didn’t think it was important and misplaced it. During check out when we asked for our deposit back the receptionist said there’s no deposit and without a receipt she can’t give it back. It was only 10 euro but it was my money and by returning the key card I was entitled to get it back but I didn’t. I feel like this hotel seeks any opportunity to get some extra money off you. St Julian’s is a lovely place with many other hotels so please spend your money somewhere else!
So where to start? This isn't a great hotel, but in fairness neither is it overly expensive. I would suggest this place if you are traveling in a big group or staying just a night or 2 but wouldn't recommend for families or couples. The reception area seems nice and bright and the staff are welcoming. The rooms are very dated and basic. Things such as the safe and fridge need to be paid for as does the wifi. Shower and air con was ok for me. It is a noisey hotel but it is also very well situated for Paceville. The breakfast was pretty poor albeit I arrived very late as they were clearing away so that comment may not be fair.
want WiFi? get ready to pay. want your fridge to work? get ready to pay. want a key to your room? get ready to pay. want to use the outdoor pool? ... it's broken. I guess that's what qualifies as a 3-star hotel. we felt like every request was an opportunity to milk the tourists for more money...
Stayed 3 nights at this hotel. Wish I could leave after the first night.!!! Location is perfect if you wanna have a good night for party. Lots bars and restaurants however if you wanna only enjoy I wouldn’t. The hotel it’s absolutely busy all the time, the guest arrive making lots noises and chatting loud anytime of the night. Definitely don’t expect you have a full night of sleep. Room furniture it’s absolutely old. It’s a very basic hotel. Make sure you bring everything as you will not have it even a decent body showergel breakfast it’s basic. Would you recommend to any my friend ? No! Would I return? No. It’s so may better option and more modern for the same price in the area.
Air con doesn’t seem to work properly it makes the noise but doesn’t cool the rooms, so rooms become stuffy. It appears some parts of the hotel have been modernised and others haven’t yet? (Ours wasn’t friends was) Building work going on a lot in the vicinity (which isn’t the hotels fault) it starts early! Safe in our room want even big enough to put iPad in, luckily our friends was. BREAKFAST WAS FAB plenty for everyone and a pretty good choice Cleaning staff were lovely Plenty of bars & restaurants close by try The Rusty Knot! Bus tour is a pretty good way to see the island
a week long business trip...good value at approx. E70 a night... Good points...lovely friendly check-in and checkout with Olga, no problems with staff and general service...hotel and the room was generally very clean with no issues...good breakfast better than most! Not so good...no room Wifi as such so I bought a E15 Ozone Internet card at reception which was very good...a little plain and dated...no carpets in the room or corridors so can be quite noisy with people passing i would give this a Good rating overall but Trip Advisor doesnt have it!
