“Had another fantastic stay at this hotel, nothing was to much trouble, feels like family when staying here. Great room, great view, great staff. Even in unprecedented times the hotel felt safe. Even the curtesy room was great for freshening up just before evening flight back. Can’t wait to see you all again”

TripadvisorGillieru Harbour Hotel

“Beautiful food, location and staff. Daniele and the team were wonderful. The price was very reasonable for 3 courses and a bottle of wine at less than €90. The salmon and Swordfish were lovely and the starters of mussels and bree cake were perfectly cooked and presented.
We would definitely eat again (and book in advance) and hope to use more of the facilities such as the upstairs pool and bar.”

TripadvisorFantastic Place!

“Just returned from a week's stay at the Gillieru to attend my daughter's wedding. The hotel was great - the staff couldn't have been nicer. Our stay had been postponed from last year, due to Covid, and they were extremely helpful in sorting out the rearranged dates and fluctuating party numbers. I am very familiar with Malta and I think this must be one of the best situated hotels in the whole of the islands. The views are spectacular. The rooms are simple but mine was large and more than adequate, kept spotlessly clean, as was the whole of the hotel and outside areas and the air conditioning was highly efficient - greatly appreciated in a Maltese August! I have mild mobility problems and the staff did not hesitate to offer me assistance if needed. They were great - hard-working and full of good humour. Only words of criticism are that breakfast is a bit monotonous, although adequate, and cooked items could do with being warmer. Some variety from fried eggs would have been nice. It was a shame that the foyer coffee shop was not open - it would have been very useful. The evening bar hours were a little erratic too - we never knew if it would still be open for a nightcap when we returned in the evening. But, apart from these small niggles, I found the Gillieru delightful and staying there greatly added to our happy family occasion. I'll be back!”

TripadvisorA Happy Place!

“Where do I start? Stayed in this hotel several times for the past years. The location is superb, All the staff in all departments are very nice and most helpful, always ready to answer any questions and ensure that they make your visit as one to remember. The rooms are clean and serviced on a daily basis, towels changed daily and room kept spotless. We had a room on the 5th floor and what a sea view. Worth the little bit extra that you pay for a seaview. Sitting out in the balcony every evening enjoying a glass of wine. Breakfast was good with good choices. We also had dinner twice in the restaurant. All was good from start to finish. Good food and good service. Pool area is kept clean on a daily basis. Pool bar staff always helpful and ready to serve you with a smile. We will definately be back and recommend to family and friends. Keep up the good work. Thank you for a lovely stay.”


“Situated beside a quiet and peaceful harbour the Gillieru Hotel is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a good night's sleep, without being disturbed by loud noise or music. The food in the restaurant is excellent and the service superb. Indeed the whole ambience of the hotel together with the friendliness of the staff combine to make the Gillieru Hotel a home from home. St, Paul who was shipwrecked near the harbour was given a warm welcome by the natives of the area almost two thousand years ago. The hospitality and friendliness shown to Paul are very much in evidence today and the tradition of extending a welcome to strangers is what makes the Gillieru Hotel exceptional.”

TripadvisorHome From Home

“We spent a few days at this lovely hotel with amazing sea views of St Paul's islands and bay. Every aspect of this hotel is superior. It is impeccably clean, full covid-19 mitigation measures and lovely restuarant also overlooking beautiful views. Literally you have breakfast right on the water's edge. Pool also has views and one feels he/she is on a cruiseliner. The sea is just beneath the hotel and so one can choose whether to swim in the pool or the sea. Very good high quality restaurant at reasonalbe prices. Looking forward to going there again. Highly recommended.”

TripadvisorImpeccably Clean Hotel With Amazing Views

“I returned home Thursday after a weeks stay at the Gillieru hotel, reason why I chose this hotel was the location, its overlooking the bay and I was pleased by the reviews how the staff coped with the covid in October 2020, when I arrived at the hotel the greeting from the receptionist was welcoming, once I had been checked in the lady gave me the room card and explained about meal times in the restaurant , she pointed to the double doors and said that I was to go to the restaurant for my meals as I stayed half board, she also explained that the pool area is on the second floor.... the stay at the hotel overall, was very nice, the chambermaids and staff, Mary Rose, Matthew and Alexander were really accommodating and helpful. if the government ever get to grips with covid, I would definitely stay there again.”

TripadvisorFirst Time On Holiday Solo

“I wanted a hotel room where I can be as close to the sea as I can. This lovely modest hotel delivered more. For breakfast one can chose from a generous list. The food was freshly cooked and generous. The staff was lovely. The receptionist Maryrose made sure we had everything and shared the history of the lovely hotel with us. The only negative was the glorious smell from their island wide renouned restaurant, which made me want to eat all the time! But isn't that what holidays are for?”

TripadvisorLucky Balcony

“Well, from the moment we arrived the staff on reception were fantastic (and continued to be, printing our Covid stuff out). We upgraded to a sea view room and we were so glad we did. Well worth the extra money to have that wonderful view everyday.
Nothing was too much trouble, great attitude towards guests and exceptionally friendly. The cleaner on our floor was great and attentive.
We never had Malta on our radar but having visited, we will definitely be back again.
Thank you to all the staff at The Gillieru Harbour Hotel for a fantastic holiday. 👍
If you have walking difficulties, this hotel may not be for you as it is a little hilly and taxis are expensive, but other than than that, it’s a real gem of a find. We stayed in room 415. Fantastic!”

TripadvisorGem Of A Hotel

“We stayed at the hotel for a week in late August and travel to Malta every year. We have stayed in many hotels within the area. I only wish I’d stayed here sooner, it was very nice. A quiet location with views from the room overlooking the harbour, i recommend the sea view room it’s well worth the stunning views. We could enjoy the view in the evening when unwinding with a glass of wine or first thing in the morning with a coffee. The hotel is in walking distance to bars and restaurants but nicely just out the way to enjoy peace. The pool was very nice overlooking the sea with access to a cafe/bar. We ate in the Carmelo cafe in the hotel, the pool cafe and the hotel restaurant for my daughters birthday which was really special and Ivan provided great service. The octopus starter was delicious as was all the food. Visiting during the pandemic we were a little nervous but the hotel had hand sanitisers stationed throughout and masks had to be worn whilst walking through it or the restaurant so we felt very safe. All in all a fantastic stay and we will definitely be back again next year!”

TripadvisorLovely Hotel

“Booked a special deal with friends for my friends birthday which came with day by the pool,evening meal and breakfast. From start to finish the customer service was spot on we were really made to feel welcome and that nothing was too much trouble. The service at dinner was amazing and the meal was fabulous too. Karaoke on the evening really topped off the night in the cafe Carmelo and made even better by steph and alina who saved us a special seating area. Very lovely lady on pool bar serving 2 for 1 cocktails too thank you steph and alina for making the weekend special. The hotel is surrounded by the sea and is central for st Paul's bay and bugibba for night life will definitely be back highly recommended”
