“Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Had a very relaxing breakfast, peaceful and tranquil environment. Prices on the high side, but the atmosphere was well worth it; very fresh pastries.

“Big expectations for the entry price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

I have a wide interest in history , stately homes & lots more. I was expecting a lot more for my money . On arrival the cost was12 euro each. More than twice St. John's co Cathedral & museum. And dearer than Grandmasters Palace both in Valletta . The receptionist was nice but pointed that quite a lot of audio guides were broken. We had to wait while she sorted the problem and eventually gave us one audio guide between us..I was not given a map to follow and had to go back for one when handed back. This was not busy ( maybe others thought it rather expensive).
Some rooms were very nice and what I could hear was informative. There was a staff member wheeling tables across the snooker room in to the ballroom . He was talking loudly on his mobile & had No consideration for Paying tourists..he went back & forth all the while on his mobile.. When you look closely som of the drapes & curtains were tired / damaged.
When we went to the gardens , although small and quaint again there was loud music as staff were getting set up for a wedding. Staff & owners should have more consideration for tourists, Also if the price was a Lot more affordable more people would visit and show better appreciation. I take hours going around historic buildings. We were around ,used toilet & out within 45 minutes. Also today , mon 16 sept the cafe was closed.

“Lovely Gardens”

We stumbled across this while on holiday. The gardens were lovely to walk around, and relax in. Especially in the heat of the day.

“Architectural and natural attracting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Very nice location and beautiful and well conserved building, including furniture.
The Italian Gardens are a bit less maintained and attractive, but is worth a visit anyway.
The inside visit shows and describes (with audio-description kit) a very elegant end complete setting of a 19th Century noble house.
The Restaurant, the lounge and the bar at the gorund floor are nice and relaxing. Didn't try the restaurant speciality, but only a drink at the end of the visit: the ambiance and feeling were great.
Is a must-try experience.
The ticket of 12 Euro is a bit expensive, so a Restaurant/bar voucher of 2 euros has been offred to balance the price.

“Really worth visiting! Don't miss it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

It's an extremely interesting palace, very well preserved and with an enchanting atmosphere in there.
It's good to visit it while listening to the audioguide explanations; moreover, the view from the upper terrace is amazing.
Let alone the exquisite gardens where you can both have fun, eat something and relax on a bench while drinking a tea.
I do recommend this attraction!
