This is one of the most charming hotels I've ever stayed in. I took my Guide Dog with me and he was made most welcome by all the staff - who didn't fuss over us either.
The rooms are spacious and kept very clean. The beds were large and comfortable and the bathrooms were sparkling.
The hotel grounds are lovely. I particularly like the entrance, which is a beautiful grotto hidden between the street and reception. This also means that children (and dogs) can't escape! The bar, lounge and poolside areas are spacious and well-kept. Although the hotel was full, it still felt quiet and relaxed.
We stayed on a half-board basis and very much enjoyed the food. There was a good choice at breakfast and dinner, with an extensive list of local and European wines. Vegetarians may want to stray off the house menu though, as an omelette was offered every night (maybe a pasta dish would work better here).
The hotel is located in a peaceful part of Xaghra, with amazing views over the valley. If you don't hire a car it's a ten-minute walk up to the town square, where you can take in the glorious church, eat at the handful of cafés and restaurants whilst waiting for the bus to Victoria or the coast route to Marsafalon or Ramla. A car would be useful if you're planning on a lot of sightseeing, but we were happy to slow the pace down and use the bus (which is on time).
On our first night we had an issue with the room, and without any fuss the staff assessed the problem, gave us another (better) room, helped us move and had workmen in the next day to fix it. they certainly take their customer service seriously, which is probably why a number of the other guests we spoke to were repeat visitors. We certainly will be.
