First time at this hotel. The staff were excellent, always a smile and a greeting. Half board is recommended as food is good if not a little to expensive. The steps from the hotel and hill to Valleta are a good way of loosing the calories but not good if you have a disability. They do have transport but it costs unless you go at 10 in morning or 6 in evening. Pool was a great place to cool down and relax. Rooms are excellent but sea view does not always mean a full sea view. Would we return possibly.
June 2015 five night stay on half board ,sea view. Grand indeed, the only hotel we have ever stayed at where everything works as it should and is exceptionally clean. All you will need is clothes and toothbrush, as razors , bath robes, slippers, face cloths and pool towels are all provided FOC and so only had to have one case for hold luggage . Food is great with something for all tastes, so good in fact that I put on half a stone in that five days. Staff were really great so much so that after a while felt almost like extended family. Pools and beach just so, indoor pool at body temperature with hot shower at side and constant depth all over. Ninety odd steps and hill to Valletta good to work off excess diet and quite manageable even with heart and back problems in 31 degree heat so ignore all those reviews elsewhere that say otherwise. So is this hotel any good? I'd say, going back for seven nights in Febuary 2016.
We had a wonderful visit at the hotel in July and would like to thank everyone for their help and courteous manner it was a delight to stay. We appreciated all the advice from Neal Debono as to the tourist attractions and areas to visit he was a pleasure to meet. Our only dissapointing item was that we only booked for one week so we will be back.
A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone at the Grand Hotel Excelsior. Particular thanks go to Peter Pisani for helping to make our Daughter Rebecca's wedding in August the best day of our lives. Thank you all for doing a wonderful job and making us all feel so welcome and looked after.
Sincere best wishes to you all.
Just celebrated our wedding at the hotel followed by a great buffet dinner.
Would like to thank all the staff, especially Mr. Peter Pisani who organised this unforgettable event. Well done Peter.

I have stayed in your hotel for ten days with a sea view. It was truly wonderful. I enjoyed the breakfast buffet in the mornings, the welcome drink, the chauffeur driven service. I swam in your pool and had a Mojito cocktail which was very good. I attended the tpdl2013 conference which was excellent. The Excelsior is a great venue for conferences. The service was very good. Thank you so much. See you again, soon.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. This truly is a 5 Star Hotel. I will be back one day no doubt about it. To the Management and Staff keep striving for excellence.
Me and my fiance at the time were looking to get married in Malta. We searched all the top hotels on the island but were amazed by the service, prices and facilities the Grand Hotel Excelsior had to offer. Our wedding could not have been better no thanks to the staffs excellent service (special mention to the organizer Peter Pisani), amazing scenery and also fantastic food! I dont think i could ever use another hotel in Malta and will always be comparing hotels in other countries to the Grand Hotel Excelsior!
We hope to see you all again soon
Having stayed at the Excelsior during the last few years on numerous occassions I have always been most impressed with the service levels, excellent food and warm atmosphere that is unusual for a large hotel.
Now having moved to Malta and set up a business, I use the hotel as a focal point for meetings and my wife and I are hooked on the Sunday Lunch. The choice and quality is wonderful supported by great attentive staff. Absolutley value for money.
To all Staff at the hotel,
We have just returned tonight from a most memorable short trip to Malta!
I wanted to extend a huge 'thank you' to all of you at the hotel. Our stay with you was perfect ~ the hotel, the facilities, the food, and the courtesy and friendliness we received from the staff, from the moment we were collected at the airport until we were taken back there this afternoon, all served to make our trip a wonderful experience - one which I can't wait to repeat in the not-too distant future. You have a fantastic hotel - the best we have visited!
Thanks again to all,
With Kind Regards,
My husband and I stayed in this hotel for three nights at the end of October. It really is a 5 star hotel. The staff were super and were very helpful and friendly. The food was fantastic with a huge choice at the buffets.Luxury all around. We would definitely go back there.
Splendido hotel, servizio, cortesia, qualità e cucina lasciano a bocca aperta.
Ho passato il periodo di San Valentino come fosse un momento magico.
I stayed at this hotel 4 times over the past 4 years and have always been satisfied!! Rooms are lovely and very clean....Pool area is beautiful with lovely views. Food is very good especially Breakfast :)) have to mention that i have food allergies and the chef at breakfast was very helpful and even had Gluten free bread and allowed me to enjoy my breakfast with the rest of my friends.
Will definately try and stay at the Excelsior again soon!!
Keep up the good work :))
Having visited Malta on many occasions The Grand Hotel Excelsior is now my hotel of choice.
The professional yet personal service especially by Alex on reception and Josette organising the chauffeur driven cars is what makes our stay special and will always keep me returning.
I look forward to seeing you all again on the 27th of December this year.
Three years ago we renewed our wedding vows on the bastions of this hotel overlooking the sea. The staff were excellent and the food was amazing. We have returned every year since and this year was no exception. We were treated like royalty and given extra treats of wine and fruit in our room. We had a celebratory meal Sunday lunchtime with some relatives and had a lovely surprise when the waiter bought out an anniversary dessert with sparklers in. We will be back next year to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary with friends and family from the UK and Malta. Thanks to all the staff who work hard fo make a stay at the Excelsior a memorable and happy one.
