As we left the karaane hotel to stay here we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel. It was more in keeping as a 4 star. The only slight moan was the bathroom. The food was good and position of the hotel exellent. The staff were friendly and helpful.
Great service &staff

First visited this hotel ten years ago. Holiday at this hotel twice a year. They are upgrading bedding seats on balconies. The staff are brill - charlie and raymond will do their best if you have any problems. Have been going to Malta for 25 years - best hotel yet it's the one for me.
Lovely hotel but could be improved

As many others may have noticed this is not a 4 star hotel in the uk sense. However, we enjoy the atmosphere, the location and the friendly service so much that we are planning our fourth stay at this hotel. The meals are more than adequate, although the evening meals are nearly all in sauce (not to everyones taste). The rooms are well maintained, beds made daily and towels changed frequently. The staff are very friendly and obliging. Some improvements would be to move the comfortable furniture from the reception area where it is rarely used, into the bar area in stead of the very uncomfortable furniture currently there. This may increase bar sales. Try to improve the lifts so they do not keep going faulty (not with us in them so far!!!I have been to Malta since I was fifteen and now take my family, we love Malta and its people and this hotel due to its staff and location is now our first choice. It is far better than many we have talked about with other visitors of the same star rating. However, if you want uk four star, look elsewhere and expect to pay a lot more.
A great week, making new friends!

I have to take this opportunity to speak up on behalf of the staff at The Gillieru Harbour Hotel. We have just visited Malta for the first time, and spent a delightful week at the Gillieru. We are 29 and 31 years of age.

Now, if you're used to pampering yourself in UK 4* hotels you may be a little disappointed; however, the Gillieru matches any good UK 3* hotel, and is on a par with many Mediterranean 4* hotels. The room was complete with mini-bar, well-priced and refilled daily. The room was tidied and cleaned daily, with clean towels provided, and extra ones available on request for the pool. The TV had a mix of channels - from the interesting TV Malta, through the bizarre Italian channels, to BBC World and BBC Prime. Complimentary shower gels and shampoos were also very welcome.

All very friendly. We found that some of the early morning restaurant staff were perhaps a little over-efficient, with our coffee and tea being refilled as soon as the cup was emptied! I would like to single out two members of the team in particular - Edric (one of the barmen) and Raymond (a Duty Manager). We were made to feel very special by them both, and now consider that we have two great friends on Malta! They even taught us Maltese - not the easiest language to grasp - but great fun - they'll give you a great 'Merhba!'. We passed some great nights in the bar, drinking Bajtra, Leila and Madlien, and having a laugh with the staff.

Breakfast was of the 'continental' variety. Dairylea slices, I'm afraid, but coupled with a selection of cold meats and fresh bread, cereals, toast and jam, tasty nonetheless. English breakfast is also available for a charge, but we found the continental more than enough.

Evening meals were superb - a selection of at least 3/4 starters and main courses each night, and no skimping on the portions! In fact, if we couldn't decide what to have, we were readily offered a mixture of them all! Great with the desserts, I have to say! The Gilleru specialises in fish dishes, with the public restaurant (attached) having international acclaim. They also do great stews, curries, and traditional Maltese fayre.

The hotel is conveniently located around 5-7minutes walk from central Bugibba, but in a quiet end of the bay, so there's the best of both worlds. There's ample parking if you hire a car to sightsee the island.

We had a fantastic week - our first time in Malta - and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anybody... we'll certainly make it our choice whenever we return to Malta! A very friendly, professional and enjoyable place to be. Tajjeb!

Food is good, service is great. Specializes in fish. Quite costly but worth it. Rooms are comfortable.

All the staff is great, the hotel is situated perfectly to relax. If you are a loner do not go here, apart from the towels and lampshades the hotel is the best.

My wife and I stayed here from the 24th of July to the 3rd of August on honeymoon and where very dissapointed indeed. Firstly though I would like to say that the staff at this hotel are really nice people and should not be blamed in any way for this review be a bad one.
Firstly the food, breakfast is just crap! Paying extra for a boiled egg is something that I find appaling and a dammed rip off, the friut juices offered are just cheap cordials (I know this because we saw them making large quantities of the stuff) the ham was cheap to say the least and the cheese slices used in these so called continental breakfasts are the same as the ones you would buy to put into cheeseburgers, wrapped in plastic and just as rubbery!!
The evening meals are nearly as bad.
The air-conditioning in this hotel is so bad we had to go out to a local shop and buy a fan to keep us cool just so we could sleep at night. The air-conditioning does'nt blow out cold air it blows out normal air, it is no colder than the air that is already in the room. Forget having the doors open if you have an inland room because the traffic makes so much noise you can't get to sleep.
No way on earth is this a four star hotel, this is not me being a winger or a snob but I have stayed at four star hotels and three star hotels and this one believe me is a three star if it's lucky, now when you pay for a four star hotel you should get a four star hotel, you wouldn't pay for a car with air-conditioning and happily take delivery of a car without air-conditioning would you? the same applies to not getting what you paid for with a hotel or any other product or service. I will be staying at the Hilton next time! at least that way we will be getting what we pay for.

Top Local Tips for St. Pauls Bay

Not for a wild night out. This isn't the place for a wild night out, there are other places in Malta such as Paceville for that. There are plenty of bars and restaurants however. For football and cheap drinks go to Angelo's but don't go to Angelo's 2 restaurant if you want good service. The newish Irish pub is a good craic (O'Reillys?). In a street of the main Bugibba squre there are a row of very good restaurants. Geronimos was a good nosh if you like ribs and steaks.

public transport get a timetable A.S.A.P buses cheap and regular

Taxis From and To The Airport Book your transfers from and to your hotel before you go. Taxi drivers will rip you off and can be unreliable but we only have ourselves to blame if we are prepared to pay and don't educate ourselves about the exchange rate and options before travelling!
