Spent a lovely weekend in early July on Bed & Breakfast basis. The Breakfast was great with a variety of pastries, engliish breakfast items and a good selection of cereals. However I was not particularly fond about the fruit juices. The room was pretty good, it may be a bit dated but the stunning views over the Marsalforn valley make up for the minor shortcomings. The hotel offered great facilities including two pools and these were never too overly crowded. When considering the price with the facilities offered this hotels offers great value for money. Possibly the best option if planning to spend two to three days in Gozo. My only complaint is the lack of online booking system!

Room Tip: A country view room is a must!

I entrusted my Pilates group to the Cornucopia hotel in October 2012. Having frequented the hotel since I was a child I knew I would not be let down. Re visiting the hotel brought back very happy memories and sent us off with happy memories anew. The hotel is a charming typical Gozitan house of character which has been extended over the years in keeping with the original character. The staff are welcoming, friendly and very accommodating.
The bungalows are spacious, clean and surrounded by native flora and fauna and located on a cliff edge with breathtaking views of the citadel. There are pools to cool off in and some great walks for the avid rambler to go off on. Bon voyage.

Room Tip: Bungalows are more private

This place definitely grew on me. The rooms are basic and feel a little outdated but seems somewhat typical for the area. The exterior grounds completely made up for it - gorgeous greenery and flowers and many pools to choose from. Great character - this hotel is a converted farm house. the dining area had many farm relics which was a nice touch. Super relaxing friendly environment. This place is ideal for a mediteranean vacation. Did not want to leave! Also the views of the valley from the hotel were spectacular ( we had a valley facing room).

Spent a week at the end of November in one of the bungalows at the Cornucopia hotel in Xaghra, Gozo. Massive 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom bungalow, with a huge balcony and amazing views, built into the cliff side just across the road from the main hotel, far too much room really for just 2 of us, on the plus side I could easily lose my husband! Bungalow was clean, with good facilities, although the heating wasnt up to much on chilly evenings, however we spent most of our time out and about so it didnt really matter. Extra blankets and duvets were provided as standard so bed was nice and warm., Maid service every day which we didnt expect and tea, coffee,bread eggs, sugar mlk etc was all there waiting for us which was a nice touch after a late flight in. Bungalow needed a few matters putting right, like spikes sticking out of the bathroom wall, and light cords in the bedroom bound up with electricians tape, but this didnt affect our enjoyment of the stay. Stayed on B& B basis, breakdfasts were very good, plenty of choice even though the hotel appeared to have very few guests in at this time. Xaghra itself is a lovely village, not at all touristy, and the locals were friendly and welcoming. Good bars, especially the "Rubble Bar" on the pleasant village square, with excellent service and great food, the owner Audrey and the chef Michael quickly became good friends. We went to Gozo for some walking, and as the weather was most accomodating, averaging 22 degrees most days, with clear blue skies, we had some great days out. There are a lot of hills, some very steep, on Gozo! To get the quick way to Victoria, the capital, it was down the "Snake Road", easy to go down, needed a Yak and a Sherpa to get back up!. Wouldnt like to do it in the height of summer, great exercise in winter with a beer waiting at the top. Have visited Malta numerous times,.but having now stayed on Gozo, it is to Gozo that we will return, Loved it.

Room Tip: Bungalows have the best views. Beer in the hotel is much much more expensive than 10 mins away in th...

Just came from a 4 day relaxing holiday in Cornucopia hotel. The atmosphere in the hotel was excellent, the food was delicious in fact we also used to have dinner at the hotel as well, and the service of the staff was tremendous, always with a smile and ready to help you for every small thing. The room was spick and span and the views from our bedroom were stunning. It was a very wonderful holiday that one would never forget and besides that was good value for money. We definitely recommend this hotel for such a holiday.

It' s a simple hotel but in a good way. The rooms are very simple and a bit empty. I liked the choice of wood for furniture and bed, but the floor was not very nice.
The courtyard is really nice and characteristic, with lots of greenery. A small oasis of tranquility and freshness.
The dinner was good.

Can`t believe some recent reviews about this hotel.I have just returned from 10 days there and couldn`t fault it.The food was excellent,my room was spotless.O.K.a few minor things needed looking at but the water was hot,the shower powerful and plenty of towels available.
You have to remember it`s out of season now so it was quiet but just what I wanted.Brian ,the manager was brilliant,nothing was too much trouble for him.He even organised 2 days use of the gym and heated pool at their sister hotel at Ta Cenc.On my last night he took the trouble to knock on my door and ask if everything had been O.K and wish me a safe journey home.The only thing he couldn`t organise was the weather!
Xaghra is a very large village and there are some interesting things to see i.e.Ggantija temples,the Church(lovely inside),Xerri`s Grotto.There are several mini markets.
Finally,the staff were terrific,always spoke and were very pleasant.Special mention for Joanne, Maria and Doris.
Unless you`re a nit-picker I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend this hotel if you want a relaxing holiday.Gettihg around Gozo is easy whether it`s walking,driving or buses ( Even Arriva run the buses now! )
