We stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon before taking the ferry to Malta. The guesthouse is conveniently situated a few minutes walk from the bay which has good restaurants and bars. The hosts are very polite, friendly and helpful; always willing to give assistance in terms of finding your way around and local attractions. The rooms are very... More

Delightful guesthouse, with friendly, but not obsequious owners, & authentically furnished rooms, with very comfortable beds. We had a room with a small balcony giving a sideways view of the sea. We were pleased & surprised that it also has a lift. The breakfasts were wonderful, with fresh fruit salad, cereals, breads, a 'full English' if required & delicious home... More

This was a return visit for us. Stylish, friendly, conveniently located for the beach, restaurants and bus stop. Breakfast is great: all fresh - fruit, bread, cheeses, meats and the 'signature' cakes and pastries. A cooked breakfast is always an option. Wonderful!
