We didn't stay at the guest house itself, but at one of Maria's apartments on the West side of Marsalforn bay. The apartment itself is quite large, and offers all the basics + a small terrace with view on the bay. It's within walking distance of the town center and beach. Breakfast is at the guest house, a 5' walk... More

Breakfast was great, coffee excellent, staff friendly and helpful. Really liked the little touches - box of free to use beach towels, basket of help yourself leftover toiletries, book swap. One of the nicest places I've... More

Me and my partner stayed here for 4 nights (12.05-16.05). Good Location in Marsalform, with two small beaches, lots of restaurants and pubs, 1min walk form the bus stop that takes you anywhere you want for 1.5 EUR! This is lovely, family run Guest House, and there is nothing that you can complain about. House is stunning, rooms big and... More

Staying here is One of the reasons to look forward for a mini break in Gozo. You can feel the warmth of A family run Guest Home. And its just a stone throw away from the sea. This is my second time and didn't regret a minute spent here. Highly recommended .

A lovely place to stay in a central location in Marsalforn a quiet unpretentious sea town near the salt plains.. Nice big clean rooms in an old but newly renovated family house. Wonderful breakfast with homemade cakes and a delicious cooked option. We were made to feel very welcome.

Family run Bed and Breakfast. The bed was so comfortable and the pillows so soft. Breakfast was lovely, cooked breakfast, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit salad, cakes. Just up the road from the smallish beach and restaurants.

Made the reservation via booking.com however I emailed the Guest house and reponse was immediate. I have stayed here many times and its always great to be home away from home. This is a family run Guest House and you feel the hospitality of the Islands and of the family itself. Great Place to stay at!!

A quaint little guest house that is both clean and central. With such friendly staff, what's not to love?! The breakfast is delicious, and the owners even kindly catered for my special dietary requirements! Would highly recommend it to families (or even solo travelers) spending a couple of days in Gozo. Look no further, and book on!

Clean and tidy guest house with a great location. Rooms are a bit on the small side and there is no Tv! However wifi is excellent. Breakfast choice is a bit limited, however the traditional cooked breakfast is quite nice. Ladies running the establishment are pleasant, parking maybe a big issue in the Summer months.
