My 'Lonely Planet' guide to Malta mentioned Duncans restaurant as having apartments over it, so while having lunch there i asked if I could see them. Mike (owner) showed me the rooms (large, light airy) which included kitchen facilities and washer facilities on the rooftop terrace (handy).Mike is extending and refurbing the apartments in Jan/Feb 2015 but offered fifty euros...

Great location, the room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and the bed was large and very comfortable. Marsaxlokk is a lovely fishing village and we are very glad we stayed here. We also enjoyed the huge fish platter and reasonably priced but good house wine.

On one of the last days in Malta we wanted to visit Marsaxxlok. After nearly 2 hours of bus rides (from Bugibba) we stood at the main square and Werke amazed. As we were hungry we wanted to enjoy some lunch at Duncan. The first thing we noticed was the friendly owner. We felt very comfortable and two of us...

We stayed at Duncan's for 8 nights and we really liked the accommodation. If you are looking for a quite location outside the crowded areas and you have a car this is the right spot. It's located in the centre of a fishermen village. The accommodation we had was spacious with a balcony facing the harbour. The room is simple...

We stayed there for a week, the room was big and clean with a nice view of the port with all the coloured fishing boats. The area is calm and very picturesque. The owner has a bar-resto on the ground floor so it was easy to get anything to eat or drink or just to have a chat about Malta....

Watching the fountains in Mansfield market square back in the UK reminded me that I still had to add a review for our 10 days at Duncans in May. Not that there’s any other comparison between our home town and lovely Marsaxlokk. This was our first trip to Malta and we didn’t want anywhere too touristy, after lots and lots...
