You don’t need a five-star bank balance to enjoy the sunshine, beaches and ancient towns of Malta. The Mediterranean archipelago has a range of budget-friendly hotels, many in the waterfront town of Sliema, which provide the ideal base to explore the treasures of Malta. Here are some of the best, including self-catering suites in spa hotels, family-run guesthouses and converted townhouses.

Picture a Maltese limestone hotel in Mellieha, one of the most alluring villages in the country, set close to a golden beach. Solana may look like a pricey resort but book a self-catering suite here for a budget break. Modern studio and junior suites have a kitchenette, plus a balcony where you can dine. Make the most of the free evening entertainment and the rooftop pool terrace with a swim-up bar.

From its aromatherapy scents to high-quality Frette linen and a spa pool with massage zones, 1926 Hotel & Spa has a keen focus on wellness. Maltese owner Savour Borg (born in 1926, hence the name of the hotel) has worked hard to create a tranquil space with light-filled rooms and fresh decor. This all comes together at the beach club, where you can spend endless hours lounging in the sun, sampling local seafood and listening to live music when the sun goes down.
