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

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
