Lighthouse is a nice little cozy hotel located in the middle of Marsalforn. The personal is very nice and helpful, and the breakfast room is very small and cozy in a good way. The breakfast it's self is very simple and good.

Stayed for one night in July 2015. Basic but decent room and good choice of different foods at breakfast. WiFi good and very attentive host. Good location close to centre of Marsalforn. Parking nearby in street or public car park.

We just booked a cheap place to stay for one night and I would have not been able to stay another night. The beds were small and the mattress the thinnest and most uncomfortable ones, I have ever slept on. Do know, that there is no A/C which makes it almost impossible to sleep in the summertime. Also there are... More

When I arrived Josef took me to an apt about 3 mins away by walking. It was next door to many empty units that were being worked on -- construction noise during the day... The apt was clean and airy and had a tv that had Italian stations. I wish I had a room in the hotel proper, but this... More

Location was close to the local shops (three supermarkets just up the road) and the sea front a 2 minute walk away. The WiFi signal was excellent and I always had a connection whilst I was at the guest house. The owner Joseph is very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was good and I was offered a... More

I suppose the key to a pleasant experince is to set you expectations right. I was looking for a no frills hotel that would accommodate my dog (not easy in Malta /Gozo) and also where it was quiet as she had to be left alone in the room for quite a long stretch on a Saturday night. I found Lantern... More

The place was ok. Breakfast was egg, bacon and peans and some toasts. Shower was not good in the 4th floor because not much pressure. Wifi worked in the 1 st floor. Marsalforn is good place to stay if you do not want to party and want to get away from turist places.

Lovely little guest house, which was incredibly clean, there wasn't a speck of dust. This is a 4 storey building with no lift and no ground floor rooms, so be prepared to carry yours bags up lots of stairs. If you have a lot of diving equipment may be worth doing a few trips up to the twin rooms with... More

We spend a week in Lantern Guest house this summer. At the beginning we were directed to the other building because hotel was full! Our booking was made a few months before and nobody informed us about it. We booked a room for 6 nights but they tried to convinced us that was 6days =5nights! Room was quite spacious but... More

Booked the Lanterns for 5 nights for myself and my 13 year old son but Joseph the owner took us to another apartment which was a few streets around the corner from the Lanterns, as he said that the Lanterns was fully booked which was a bit of a shock as I had booked it a couple of weeks before....
