We stayed for a couple of nights and thoroughly loved it. Staff were friendly and helpful, and its in a convenient location right next to buses and Mdina main gate. The view from the rooms at the back is incredible looking out over miles of. Our room was HUGE, with a comfy bed, leather sofa and loads of cupboard space.... More

I visited Point De Vue and tried out their terrace pizzeria on a warm July evening. Attention from the staff was very good and you are served in a very short time. Their pizzas are very good especially the Funghi and the Maltese. I am glad to have tried it since up to a few years ago, the Point De... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks. I could not have wished for a better accommodation or location. Over the 2 weeks I grew to love the Maltese people and felt very at home here. All the staff welcomed us, nothing was ever to much trouble. A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL STAFF AND GUESTS. This is a... More

This is an excellent place to stay for location, service, meals and room. Hard to find fault - quiet, clean, and handy to transport. I wanted nothing of the hectic, tourist-crowded atmosphere of Sliema and St Julians, and I got a restful stay. This family-run guest house is huge value for money. The breakfast is great, the staff is wonderfully... More

I've only had the opportunity to have a quick coffee and some liquers with friends recently. Have always been sceptic about this place but it certainly has perked up since it changed management. Since my very last visit, a few years ago, it's cleaner and friendlier. The atmosphere is a cosy one, not too cluttered and the rooms are very... More

I checked into a single room on my last night in Malta. This hotel is across the driveway from the oldest city, Mdina which is a wonderful experience. I wish I could say the same for this hotel. Average room, average service from wait staff, excellent customer service from Management and sub par dining experience at the Thai restaurant attached... More

We read on the Internet (ie Tripadvisor) that this guest house is under new management and that the service had been improved. We made reservations via Internet (one night a double room for € 95,- including breakfast). The location of the guest house is perfect! It is right next to the entrance of the Mdina of Rabat. However, the interior... More

Stay overnight just outside Mdina's city walls and enjoy the Silent City after the day trippers have gone or before they arrive and when the light is at it's best. And I mean "just outside". This 16 room guesthouse has been in use for over a century and excludes atmosphere. We had originally booked two rooms, but on arrival were... More

This was a friendly family run hotel and was very welcoming. Wonderful staff who can't do enough for you. Lovely food in both the bar and in the restaurant. The rooms were quite basic eg no tea & coffee facilities. When we mentioned this we were given a mini kettle without any problems but it would be a nice touch... More

The new management have done a fantastic job with this very central guest house. We stayed here in March and couldn't have been happier with the fantastic location right outside the ancient walls of Mdina. The staff were very welcoming and attentive and were particularly generous with all the breakfast options! Hotel residents also get 20% off the in-house restaurant... More
