Expert review of The Victoria Hotel

Traditional hotel in the heart of old Sliema.

A traditional, well-established town hotel in a quiet upmarket area of Sliema. it is perhaps a touch too trad for my personal taste , but the Victoria inspires great loyalty and some visitors come back year after year. This hotel is the much older sister of the adjoining ultra-modern Palace Hotel, whose new leisure facilities it now shares.

Location: 

In the heart of residential Sliema amongst pretty squares, colourful galleriji (Maltese wooden balconies) and churches, minutes from the seafront, shopping, ferries and restaurants. The car park under the hotel is very useful if you have a hire car, as parking in Sliema can be tricky.

Bedrooms: 

Traditional, conventional hotel rooms, some in need of updating and a lick of paint in places, but comfortable.

Public areas: 

Plentiful and comfortable: leather arm chairs and fireplaces. Quite an English club feel.

Eating and drinking: 

The Penny Black Bar serves drinks and light meals all day while the main restaurant is Copperfield’s, serving a la carte and a buffet of mostly European dishes in the evenings.

Leisure facilities: 

Out of kilter with the rest of the hotel, most of the leisure facilities are brand new and contemporary in style, as they belong primarily to the Palace Hotel. The Palace is a spanking new 21st century designer hotel and the Victoria shares its rooftop outdoor pool (unheated) and indoor fitness centre, treatment rooms and heated swimming pool.

Service: 

Excellent and personal. Some visitors have been coming here for many years. The feeling of being looked after is one of the things that draws them.
