My husband and I and my parents in law booked both Selmunett rooms for our second week in Malta. We had stayed in Birgu for week one and wanted a central Malta location for week two. I looked at every Trip Advisor listing for accommodation with two bedrooms. I had a few expectations after reading the high ratings from previous reviewers and my visit to the accommodations web page. I was expecting to get an insight into life as a local, some recommendations or tips from the owners about where to go and what to do and one happy mother in law after she realised there was a resident to a dog, cat and bird (she loves animals). Well my expectations were not only met but exceeded in every way. We were warmly welcomed and found ourselves feeling like we were long lost relations rather than guests.
Roger and Maria are exceptional hosts and the property is amazing. The rooms were very private and very comfortable. The rooms were made up every second day and fresh water was provided daily. The rooms are kept warm during winter with a central fire place in the entry as well as room heaters. We did't need our heater though, the room we stayed in was a very comfortable temperature. The shower pressure was excellent (which I find rare when travelling). Mini bar fridges were installed in the early part of our stay which was greatly appreciated by my beer drinking husband.
Breakfast was perfect, there was excellent variety with a fruit course and the hot meal cooked to order each morning, there were also cereals, yoghurt and breads.
We hired a car which Roger arranged for us, I recommend you do the same. Roger gave us a GPS to use which was a god send as clear street signage is not a strong point in Malta. We took the car to Gozo one day and used Roger's pre-prepared notes and map.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay
