I was extremely disappointed in this hotel: we booked it in the knowledge that 4 star meant a certain level of comfort and cleanliness, as well as the fact that it contained a gym (crucial for my holiday partner as she was running a 10 mile race two days after we returned), a sauna, an indoor swimming pool, and a jacuzzi as amenities for guests. Regarding these: - Gym: according to the extremely rude and unhelpful reception staff (besides one guy called Victor), the gym was "in the process of… Read Full Review

We have just returned from 14 days of absolute misery at the Crown Hotel in Bugibba. There is so much wrong with the place I scarcely know where to begin, but if I tell you that it is known throughout the resort as Fawlty Towers you’ll get the general idea. The temperature was in the high 90's for the duration of our stay and there was NO air conditioning in the entire hotel for the 14 days. The AIR-CONDITIONING DOESN’T WORK. Although someone let slip that the system functions well… Read Full Review

Just come back from the Crown Hotel where we was supposed to spend a week as a short break. We cut our holiday short and flew back home after 4 days. Just could not stand it any longer. Firstly, we had a room that smelled of wee! There were no windows in the room and the balcony was not a balcony, just a small fenced in patio area that was facing a very tall wall. You could not see outside at all so we did not even know what the weather was like. We asked to be moved but was told that… Read Full Review

First time in Malta (Feb-Mar 2010) and we hoped for a good 4 star hotel - but the Crown is not anywhere near that - a reasonable 2 star is best..staff very friendly and food just about OK - but showers are a joke, a 10 year old may get in one but not an adult person - we complained as did a large majority of newcomers on arrival, and all were moved - we got a bath with antiquated mixer shower...the bar doesnt open until 19.00hrs and closes at 2300 hrs - unbelievable......entertainment provided… Read Full Review

Both my wife and I were of the opinion that the Crown Hotel at Bugibba was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in.
One night was enough and we demanded a move to the Suncrest in Quara if we had not moved we would have returned to England immediately. The room was poor, cleanliness was dire, carpets that had not been cleaned in years, a shower that did not work the story could go on it was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in.
The Crown Hotel was not even worth a 1 Star, terrible with a room… Read Full Review

Nice comfortable bedroom with clean towels daily and bedding regularly changed, a bit dark due to balcony looking out onto neighbouring building, front rooms would be better. Bathrooms in need of an update. Staff friendly and food good. Communal areas spotless. Would recommend to people wanting small, clean, friendly hotel with no frills. Don't go if you are a picky person… Read Full Review

After reading the previous reviews, we were very anxious about our stay at this hotel, but pleasantly surprised. Agree that The Crown Hotel is possibly not a 4*, but the breakfast was good, clean towels everyday,room cleaned and tidied everyday even on Sundays. Yes our shower was rather small, but we had a laugh everytime we had a shower because if you dropped the soap,try to retrieve it you turned the shower off,but plenty of hot water. Staff were very helpful.Lovely swimmingpool on the roof… Read Full Review

Bugibba, Crown Hotel has good food, dining room arrangements self service but easy with chef on hand to dispense food. Staff helpful and very pleasant. Quiet area but handy for buses, daily room service very good.
Pleasant decor in quiet Art Deco style.

Not a 4 star hotel, 2 on a good day.
Food was OK. Breakfast passable. Beds were lumpy with springs just waiting to strike. Pillows were simply bags filled with lumps of foam.
Shower too small, could hardly get in the door opening and the tray filled with water after a couple of minutes. WC wouldn't flush away anything much, had to fill a bucket with water and throw it down.
TV was almost useless. Lighting too dim to read by.
View from balcony over rubbish bins, TV aerials and blank walls.
Indoor… Read Full Review

My partner and I spent two weeks there a few months ago(may 2008). The resort is fantastic but the hotel was a nightmare from day one. When we arrived the room was dirty and had not been cleaned from the previous occupancy. We complained about this and the fact that we had a view from the balcony of a brick wall. The receptionist was very helpful and assured us that we would be upgraded at no extra cost, we were moved to an identical but cleaner room with a view from the balcony of a brick… Read Full Review

Myself and my partner went to The Crown Hotel halfboard for 14 nights. In general the hotel looked rather nice. But there was a constant stale, damp smell in the hotel which made me feel sick!! We arrived at the hotel around 9pm, we were greeted by a man at reception who came across to us as very miserable and unhelpful. Once we found our room we were extremely upset as we were expecting a 4* room! It was on the ground floor in a dark corner next to the cleaners area with no natural day light… Read Full Review

Myself and fiancee went B&B to the Crown Hotel. On arrival to the crown hotel, the general look of it was nice. We were greeted by a member of staff who booked us in. I thought the hotel generally smelt like mould and dampness. Although the cleaners were fabulous and polite no matter how much cleaning they did I found the smell still was unbearable. Our room was on the ground floor in a dark corner. The sheets were clean on the bed however on inspection of the bathroom the toilet seat was… Read Full Review

This Hotel rates itself as 4 star, but in reality is only a 2star, Maltese star rating system is different to ours. Even though the hotel is at the cheaper end of the market, it is not good value for money as the food is so bad that if you are on half board you have to go out to eat to get some descent food.
I would NOT recommend anyone to stay in this hotel, the only reason we did not change hotel ( and several fellow guests did move after complaining) was we were only there for a week and… Read Full Review
