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

Sophia (the young house manager) was a joy to be in the company of. Always smiling. Always helpful. Genuinely lovely company. Very quaint house. Clean and tidy. Shame Wifi only available in common area.

I had forgot my phones in the taxi.And they take care of contact the taxi company for me. Very nice place and vey good reception. A very unique ambiance in this old residence. There's not much to do in regard to party the night but it's very close to the aeroport

Hi, first it is very difficult to find the property at night. The experienced suttle bus driver had found it from the 3-d attempt only. The staff is friendly, but the service needs attention because it is difficuld to find switch for the hitter, the handle into the room needs attention. The sink was blocked several times in the bathroom... More

We stayed in Malta for five days recently for the wedding of some university friends. We chose the Burrow partly through the reviews on Trip Advisor, partly because of the location (quiet, handy for the airport, and fairly close to Valletta). As it turned out, I don't think Tarxien was as convenient a location as we'd thought it would have... More

We arrived at The Burrow with unfortunately not any of the senior family members present, nor when we returned later in the evening. Although we mentioned in correspondence we would leave very early to catch our flight, this was not anticipated for. We had a room all the way up the stairs with a shared family bathroom 1 floor below.... More

We loved our stay in the burrow...despite of small hiccups such as Taxi man not finding the place and no hot water on one of the nights. But the experience of staying in a proper Maltese town, in a beautiful family home is hard to beat. If you wanna escape the horrible looking tourist traps such as Paceville, then Tarxien... More

In May we travelled to Malta and planned to stay one night in this B&B. We booked in advance, had several email contacts and even a phone call two days before arrival, to confirm being picked up from the airport and the reservation. When we arrived at 22:30 in the evening with two small children and there was no one... More

We were guests a couple of days ago and really liked the family style and breakfast idea. Chiara, the owner and manager is a a warm hearted women trying her best to satisfy all her guests.
