Had a great time in the penthouse ,it is in a very pretty courtyard. The terrace was amazing. So near to everything you need. We have been to Malta many times but this is the best place we have ever stayed . It was so spacious and everything we needed was there.Was lovely having breakfast on the terrace every morning The only changes i would make would be( as someone else has already suggested) adding blinds or something to the windows But wouldnt say it is a problem and certainly wouldnt stop me staying there again...Graham made everything so easy for us from booking to going home {which neither myself or my husband wanted to do ) Paul the taxi driver is a lovely man on time always. We did make use of the buses whilst there and went to Naxxar and Ghargur both beautiful places. We look forward to going to Malta again next year and would love to stay in the penthouse.. Thankyou once again Graham for everything.

Spacious pleasant apartment on 2 floors; 2 double bedrooms (only 1 used); 1 ensuite toilet/basin/shower plus separate shower/basin/toilet room; quiet location, no night time disturbances; 2 balconies/terraces with sunbathing possible from noon each day (in June); steep hill to property which became steeper when carrying shopping; lift to 4th floor very welcome; had to ask for sheets to be changed due to stains - sheets had been washed but grease(?) stains were very evident; sheets changed promptly once office opened Monday (arrived Saturday); supermarket 6/7 mins away; convenient to bars/restaurants and attractions of resort; convenient to bus; taxi driver organised by owner for airport transfers very efficient and pleasant; early check out required - 9am.

Thank you for your review . We apologise for the marked sheets but confirm that they were clean even though they had a mark of some sort which skipped housecleaners attention whilst laying them. We have discarded this particular set of sheets.
Regarding the check out time – To be fair, during our correspondence on this last minute booking, I informed you that if you want to go ahead with the booking, the check out time will have to be at 9.00am owing to a back to back booking. This was to your acceptance prior to you transferring the deposit. If we do not have a back to back booking clients are free to stay on till flight departure time.
See my correspondence of the 4th June “Kindly advise at what time does your plane depart on the 15th June since I have people moving in at 11.30am. Thus, check out will have to be at 9.00am. If your plane is in the evening, Paul could collect your luggage at 9.00am and than call for you from in front of the apartment 2 hours or so prior to your flight departure where your luggage will be already in his car.”

“Fantasic apartment with an extremely helpful owner”

person found this review helpful

My partner and I stayed in a 2-bed apartment in Cloister's Walk for 6 days in October 2012. The apartment was very clean, spacious and has great amenities. It was very well located close to the activity in St.Julian's but in a small, quite, attractive apartment block. The owner Graham was incredibly helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay in Malta. Our friends had recommended we contact Graham as they had stayed in another apartment he owns in St.Rita's and were also delighted with their experience. Couldn't recommended him or his apartments highly enough.

We stayed one week at Cloister's Walk and the apartment met our requirements. It is within a short walk to the centre of St Julans and all that offers.
Good airconditioning and appliances - but no microwave oven for those quick snacks.
This is a modern apartment which will more than meet a couples needs. Street parking is a problem in this busy area so try and book one of the onsite car parks.

Thank you very much for your review. It is correct - Parking in sought after areas like Sliema and St. Julian's is not easy especially in the peak season and also because it is unmetered or free.

“Perfect Location”

Great place to stay in Malta, Beautiful Moorish Mews type property in a gated walkway.
Nice and quiet, yet only a few minutes walk into the best part of Malta, with some excellent restaurants and shops. You need to be fairly fit though, as the apartment is about 150 meters up a fairly steep hill, We are in our 60's and it was no great hardship for us. In fact we enjoyed the walk after eating far too much in the restaurants.
The apartment was superb, just as described, being in a quaint old building and refurbished to a very modern standard.
The owners daughter was waiting for us on arrival and could not have been more helpful. To the point that my wife asked if there was a hairdryer, she couldnt find it, so went out a bought a new one for us that morning.
The apartment was spotlessly clean, our only critisim was the that the pillows were very poor quality, but I can live with that, as everything else was great.

Thank you for your review and the positive comments. Gavin, we would appreciated being informed during your stay that there was a drainage blockage which unfortunately is not a rarity in summer. The plumber would have simply unblocked the clog in the toilet drains which do get blocked especially if all sorts of things are thrown into it, accumulate and create a blockage.

There are other ways which lead to the apartment to avoid the hill from the Spinola Bay side. It is from the Balluta Bay side or else there is a path which leads from mid way Sir George Borg Olivier Street which leaves just the lesser of the short inclining streets. However, you are correct to say that if you suffer from very low-fitness, any walking impairments...or had one too many ( smile ) the road does look and feel steeper.

We thank you once again and we are glad that we were of service.
