Breakfast is adequate,bread,cereals,croissants and unlimited teas and cafetière coffee.

This guest house is a gem. As before Neil and Larissa were perfect hosts. An added bonus this time was nice weather which meant we could take advantage of the stunning terrace with views over the harbor. Air con has now been included which was welcomed during the hot and humid weather. we will be back.

We stayed at the guest house for three excellent nights. The owners could not have been more welcoming and went out of their way to ensure we had everything that we needed. Neil has even designed a walk from Marsaskala to Marsaxlokk and we thoroughly enjoyed that too. The guest house is clean and welcoming and we had great views... More

Some great useful advice for other guests - yes, we prefer you use the fast WiFi than have TVs in the rooms which would give you pretty useless Maltese and Italian channels plus be noisy to the other guests. So glad your stay was a good one! Thank you for the review. More
