“Very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at Ta' Maria BB renovated guesthouse. Very relaxing, located in a quiet area in Ghasri far from the maddening crowd. Rooms are decorated in a traditional medevial style and very clean. Very friendly hosts. Delicious breakfast was served by the pool. A real place for relaxing,

This is a very beautifully converted house of character and it truly has plenty of character. The location is truly peaceful and it offers lovely valley views. What is most notable is the cleanliness around the premises. Towels and linen are crystal white. The decor of the rooms is very warm and welcoming offering a romantic atmosphere. The beds are also truly comfortable. The b&b also offers a delicious breakfast of which homemade cakes (scrumptious). I do highly recommend to all those looking for a relaxing getaway in a lovely location . Top value and quality! Well done. We loved every second of our stay :)) We will surely be returning very soon.

Ta Maria is a peaceful and carefully renovated guesthouse with excellent location and friendly hosts, including the resident cat Sir Marmalade. The rooms were impeccably clean, the common areas dotted with magazines and local tourist information. Beach towels, snorkelling gear, sunscreen and cosmetics were left at our disposal. Breakfast is a delicious buffet with fresh fruit, cold cuts, bread, yogurt and pastries. We were also offered a cooked breakfast and fresh cakes...served in the courtyard by the swimming pool in the shade of the palm trees. In the evenings we used the kitchen and the barbecue to cook up our own meals. The local bird hunters woke us up the first morning, but that isn't an issue if you close the windows. I would recommend calling 15-20 minutes before you arrive as the hosts do not live on site and you may otherwise need to wait for them to arrive. We got lost the first time trying to find the guesthouse, so a good tip would be to follow the signs to Villagg XXX, which is right across the street. Overall Ta Maria is a wonderful and relaxing stay, a great base for exploring Gozo.

Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay stay here. Only downside was that we wished it could have been for longer! Large room, use of verandah on our floor with lovely views, use of kitchen for the occasional cuppa ( oh and a piece of home made cake!). This is much more than the usual B and B. Breakfast by the pool, and a lot of choice.
Will definitely return and recommend.
Just remember you need big pockets for the medieval keys!

We just returned from a 5 nights stay at Maria's B&B and had a brilliant time.
Beautiful, quiet and clean house with large bedrooms simply and nicely decorated, good breakfast (cakes and fruits and/or cooked breakfast) and very pretty pool (which can be a little cold but I guess we were in Gozo end of October). It's a great find - and super good value too. We were woken up by hunters (it was hunting season apparently) every morning but this was not a huge issue for us and we were completely relaxed and rested by the end of our stay.

The closest beach is a beautiful rocky cove; very nice walk (about 45 minutes) though not completely straight forward. We would definitely stay at the B&B again.

The village is quite remote which has its charms. We were travelling by bus or feet only and we would recommend hiring a car or scooter as it can be a bit of challenge as there is only 1 bus an hour (same for every bus line on the island). Likewise I can imagine it can be nice to be away from the crowd during the busier summer months.

We used Joey's taxi (+356 99427271) and would recommend him any day. He rescued us from a secluded beach when our other taxi driver didn't pick us up and arranged a smooth and inexpensive transfer to Malta's airport for us.

This hotel was great stayed for 4 nights and loved it. The rooms were traditional medieval style and were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was served around the pool and breakfast and service was always great. Such a cute and magical place with traditional furniture throughout. The cakes served with breakfast were different everyday and always yum! Not far from bus stop buses came every hour. Would stay again in a heart beat. :)

This place is amazing. There were 12 of us that stayed at this place and it was a great experience.

The rooms were medieval yet very inviting. The rooms were cleaned as we ate breakfast and ready by the time we were done.

The breakfast was great. Sonia is a great cook. Always happy to cook breakfast and very fast and efficient.

I would recommend this place in a heartbeat.
