“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. Each room is themed by colour (Emerald, Red, Violet and Yellow), with cushions and curtains in those hues.
For a bathtub, go for Yellow, or Red, which also has a small balcony. The new-build Emerald (yet in keeping, with high beamed ceilings) on the rooftop is our top choice, with a small private terrace at the back, bright walls covered in Veneziano plaster, and a shower bathroom.
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!
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.
