Beautiful penthouse. Fantastic views over the 3 cities. Excellent jacuzzi and living space. Air conditioning very much appreciated. Neil, the owner, was extremely accommodating and nothing was too much trouble for him.
Beautiful apartment with everything you need for a fabulous holiday. Neil was very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Gorgeous views across the bay to
Valletta which is a short boat ride away. Some good restaurants nearby and the local area was great to explore. Would definitely love to go back.
I can't say enough good things about Neil and the apartment. He collected us from the airport, went over maps with areas and places to visit, discussed travel and transport and was always on hand should we need him. The apartment was immaculate, spacious yet had a homely feel. There was everything you could possibly need from a fully equipped kitchen to hairdryers which made the stay relaxing, stress free and a home from home feel. Ample space on the terraces and the jacuzzi was perfectly situated overlooking the spectacular view. The local restaurants along the harbour were lovely. Less than a 10 minute walk to the ferry which takes you straight to Valletta. A huge thank you for letting us experience your beautiful home. We had a perfect holiday and will definitely be booking a return visit.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Neil. What a gem of a place. If you are looking to stay in Malta do not look elsewhere, this wonderful apartment has everything you need. A wonderful host, the most stunning views and all the home comforts you need and the added bonus of a hot tub with a view. Our holiday was started with a smile...a welcoming one from our host Neil who collected us at the airport. We chatted like old friends. He gave us some local information and left us admiring his stunning place. There is a ferry to Valetta approx 5 mins walk away and local transport nearby. We would highly recommend this place for your base to tour this interesting and historic island, not as though you would want to leave it for long.
This was a return trip to Penthouse Cottonera for our family. We thoroughly enjoy the area, great ferry to Valetta, a variety of restaurants particularly in Senglea and Bormla, places to swim in Kerala and Rinella Bay. There is a real sense of history as you are surrounded by wonderful buildings and places of interest to visit.
One favourite experience is the fish shop two streets away where the very helpful Maltese cook will advice on the best fish and cook to your request, with pasta, rice, potatoes, salad etc. Great experience to eat on the lovely terrace. The views are wonderful and a great source of entertainment.
Neil, the owner could not be more helpful. He is speedy in his replies and extremely attentive to your needs. He certainly adds to the feeling that your holiday is a very special experience. Our booking, pick up and transport to the apartment was faultless.
As our daughter works in Malta so we have visited the island several times and we have stayed in different places but I can say in all honestly that nothing else has come slightly close to our experience in Cottonera. It is not a disadvantage to be away from the more tourist areas, it is a small island and public transport is easy to negotiate and cheap. Local people have been warm, welcoming and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the elections and celebrations which we joined and found the Maltese to be such fun and slightly "crazy" what an experience with the fireworks and celebrations which went on for several days. Their energy and enthusiasm was catching.
The apartment is well furnished, well equipped and everything that you could need is available within the flat or close by. I could use a number of superlatives to describe our family holiday and experience, we really hope to do another return trip. I have no reservations at all in recommending this apartment.
