“Historic charm combines with modern comforts and a warm welcome at this central Malta B&B”
With furnishings from the owners’ international travels, the suites are full of lovely pieces from Indonesia, Dubai and Morocco. High ceilings and large windows allow light to flood in, and walls and floors are made from local sandstone.
Of the Deluxe Suites, the new-build Emerald is our top choice, it's on the rooftop and comes with high-beamed ceilings, a small private terrace at the back, bright walls covered in Veneziano plaster, and a shower bathroom. For a bathtub, go for Yellow or Red, which also has a small balcony. The 50.sq.m Violet Deluxe Suite has a bedroom and sitting room with a double sofabed so is best for families, but is accessed via a wrought-iron spiral staircase, so pack lightly!
Since our visit, a collection of individually themed Superior Suites have been added next door to the main house. We're yet to personally view them, but they offer striking design and individuality.
A buffet breakfast is laid on every morning, and you can eat in the bright dining room at the 12-seater table, or at one of the tables by the pool. The spread includes homemade jams, warm rolls, fresh fruit, delicious date pastries and local hams and cheeses, plus fresh juice and cafetiere coffee. Cooked options are available on request.
For other meals, there are plenty of eating choices in the town, or in surrounding towns and villages. Chapel 5 offer discounts at various restaurants in the vicinity, and can recommend places.
Children aged 6+ are welcome.
Children (4-12 years)
The Violet Deluxe Suite is best for families, with a double bedroom and lounge area with a double sofabed. All other suites can fit a rollaway bed (though space will be tight); we recommend Emerald, on the rooftop, as it has a small terrace area.
