After a one night stay they charged our credit card twice. When we contacted them they profoundlyyv apologised and admitted their mistake. But even after multiple reminders they never payed us back. So steer clear of these criminals if you value your money!!

Dear Mr. Creemers, Accidental repeat charge Due to an oversight on our part, we accept that last summer you were inadvertently charged twice for this amount during your stay with us. There was a simple misunderstanding between a staff member and myself, nothing more than that. Although the amount is small, we understand that you must feel upset, and we... More

We stayed here as a cheeky extra day in Malta and it didn't disappoint!! Where to start? Chiara, our host, is a lovely lady - very friendly (in the nicest way, no saccharine gushing here!) and went out of her way to accommodate our arrival, delayed tho it was by the driver from our previous 5* accommodation! The building itself... More

Pros: incredibly charming 400 year old fully restored building. Comfy bed, clean sheets, air con. Oozing historical charm. Our stay was great. Cons: booked this hotel for one night because it was the closest we found to the airport. Booked a taxi to the airport when we checked in. Taxi was supposed to come at 0530am. Taxi never shows. Tried... More

A very good Guesthouse. The owner has a great taste in decoration. I stayed only one night since I was diving on Gozo bur my flight left very early so I needed a place to stay close to the airport. I don't regret staying at the Burrow. Very friendly and easygoing.

We chose this place with no knowledge of Malta except that we wanted to be away from the tourist-pack area (Sliema, Saint Julien, etc.) yet close to La Valetta. Very happy with our choice. 4 century old house renovated for comfort and beauty. The neighborhood, close to the Tarxien Temples and the Hypogeum, keeps the flavor of older Malta, with... More

The Burrow is a real maltese bed and breakfast. Its a very special building packed full of lots of lovely and tiny details. This place are in middle of Malta Island, for this reason, to orgenize trips to explore the island.

Very interesting house - circa 400 years old and very tastefully modernized. Great place to stay and very convenient to airport and temples. A series of small courtyards throughout the house including a roof garden and a small square in front of the house.

The house and the rooms are beautiful, very stylish, something you find very rarely. The only downside was an incredible smell coming from the bathroom and filling the whole room- smell of wetness, mould, fustiness- like you get in old cellars. We tried to keep the doors of the room opened, use ventilator, but nothing helped. I had difficulties breathing... More

We stayed here for the last 2 nights of a trip around Malta & Gozo and were warmly welcomed by Sophia and Mr Whiskers (the rabbit). We stayed in Bedroom 1 which was the only downstairs bedroom, the bathroom was just outside the bedroom and we had sole use. Despite the shower holder being broken, there was plenty of hot... More
