The Quizzly Bears

A travel blog entry by caitlinnelson


... 8217;

Nicole, Lars and I formed a team called the Quizzly Bears, with Debbie and Egil joining us too. We came second last on the quiz, but it was an awesome night of giggles, concentration faces and interesting trivia. I loved the cryptic questions round! But I wasn’t very helpful during the beer tasting round…

Nicole, Lars and Egil headed home, but Debbie, Suchi, Charlotte, Josh and I walked ...

Beer pong, birthdays and buddies being blue

... bacon and egg ftira on the way back to my house, and then I sat contentedly with Suchi and Mark as we watched funny videos and listened to music on my laptop.

It was a great night, but on the other hand, a lot of people told me unfortunate things about their life, which weighed me down a bit. I mulled over everyone’s issues and pondered how lucky I am to have a life free from pain, stress and ...

Magical mystery tour of the four M's!

... at a football club down the road, and there was heaps of traffic. Let’s just say, Mosta was happenin’ that afternoon!

Victor dropped Damien and I off at Mdina so he could swing by his boss’ house for a job. It was still raining, so naturally we headed indoors. It just so happened that indoors was Fontanella Tea Rooms…which inevitably lead to cakes and milkshakes!

On our way back to Gzira we ...

The world is sepia

... Maltese balcony in the Forest Room, and also found some cool lampshades and a set of sheets for my room, the Flower Room. It was a long tiring day of shopping. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that shopping isn’t hard work, because it’s totally exhausting! Ippy and I joked about ‘the hard life of a house wife.’

I went to Good Thaimes that night and the party was already in full swing. Josh was jovially hassling a group of young ...

Adventure time

A travel blog entry by caitlinnelson


I woke up feeling a bit seedy and managed to pass a yawn across the world via Skype to Mum and Dad. How cool is that?!

I had a hearty breakfast of porridge, pasta, toast, banana and orange juice. Yeah, I know it's a lot! I just couldn’t stop!

We were going on a road trip to the South today, so Rami headed out to find a hire car. Our usual supplier was out of vehicles, so Rami had to go further afield, but finally found one at Hertz.

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Waterfront Hotel Il Gzira

    Good holiday at the waterfront


    Just returned from 10 days at the Waterfront and would thoroughly recommend it. Clean room,good food and obliging staff.

    Excellent holiday


    Just returned from an excellent fortnight at the Waterfront. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Stayed in corner room on 7th floor - brilliant.

    Wonderful hotel


    Excellent hotel with good facilities and friendly staff. All meals of a high standard and a varied menu.

    A great hotel


    We have just returned from the Waterfront hotel and we agree fully with all the reviews that this hotel is the best. As it becomes more popular it will become harder to book. We were told that the hotel is fully booked till well into November and at least 35% of customers are returners. The food was very good always hot and a good variety.

    Very Pleasant!


    We stayed in the Waterfront Hotel in July this year. It is an excellent hotel with good facilities. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I would fully recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Mt wife & I have stayed at the Waterfront Hotel 3 times in the last 3 years.


    It is without doubt our favourite hotel on the island first class in every respect. We take our annual main holiday in Malta, our next visit this year will be our 17th, and ou 4th stay at the Waterfront Hotel. It is excellent in every respect Comfort, Decor, Clealiness, excellent food & in a very good position. Above all though the staff are excellent.

    Fantastic Modern Hotel


    We stayed at The Waterfront Hotel during the peak August season of 2003. It was brilliant. We received an extremely warm welcome from the porter and all staff were very friendly and helpful. Our half board meals were outstandingly good - better than your average self service stuff! The view across the creek to valetta from the front of the hotel (esp. the restaurant windows) is quite lovely. The roof top pool was lovely - though is a lot smaller than the clever photography in the brochure/website suggests! This hotel had a noticable lack of screaming kids and I would say is ideally suited to couples. The air-conditioning in reception and in our room provided a real haven from the occasionally unbearable outside heat. A first class hotel.

    Almost qualifies for ***** (5 star)


    Very pleasant stay. Staff always ready to help: food excellent and ample Bar open all night with good service and even better prices. I settled bill at the end of a forthnights' stay and it did not bankrupt me. Rooms ample and service excellent. I will go back if they'll have me. We had two grand little ones who behaved? but we had no complaints!

    Wonderful, but.......


    The Waterfront has been recently refurbished to a very high standard. The decor is stylish and service is excellent. The food in the restaurant was good and well-presented. We had a corner room on the second floor, giving extra space and a lovely view of the harbour. The one drawback was that being low down meant that we were subject to quite a lot of traffic noise most of the time. Overall a lovely hotel which we would be happy to visit again, making sure that we requested a high floor/ quiet room!

    Good hotel


    Watterfront Hotel can be recommended! Nice rooms, good breakfast, situated very good near Sliema Ferry and bus stops.

    We regret that so many restaurants in Sliema are on the wrong sida of the road. More restaurants are wanted on the seaside of the Strand etc.

    It's not nice to sit in the traffic. We went to St Julians for our dinners!
