Has the trappings of a quality hotel.

One absolute must is the complimentary "Two Towers Ramble". My host was Sam and his knowledge of the history and natural history of the Pembroke area near the hotel is fascinating. One of my best experiences in Malta.
Although the hotel itself is of an excellent standard and the staff extremely attentive, the dining options leave much to be desired. Apart from breakfast, which is absolutely first class, dining options are limited. The main restaurant (the only one within the main building) is expensive (about 80 euros dinner for two with wine) and uninspiring. There are two other quirky, expensive restaurants in the grounds which would not appeal to all, as well as an "all-American" burger and ribs place which is more reasonably priced, but you wouldn't want to eat that sort of stuff every day. To make matters worse, the local town centre is a bit seedy and tends towards pizzas, burgers and kebabs. Just by the bottom pedestrian gate of the hotel is the Marina Restaurant which is mainly Italian, but their rump steak is to die for and their prices OK. If you do want to treat yourself, afternoon tea in the main lounge of the hotel is a great experience. However, in the lounge I absent-mindedly ordered a tot of run-of-the mill single malt. It set me back 18 euros! There is a nice free minibus to Sliema and Valetta three times each morning (book early), but the afternoon pick-ups are from Valetta only. In summary, this is a very nice hotel, but the "extras" costly.
