Gozo – three hotels/guest houses owned and run by one family – ferry across to Mgarr in Gozo free, then pay €4.60 for return journey to mainland Malta.

A seaside location for the original guest house owned by Maria and her family, this is a small boutique hotel at the heart of the bay, a lift and some small steps so you need to ask for the special room if you cannot manage steps. The house in Victoria has a purpose-built room with wide doors to accommodate those with disabilities, but no lift. A lovely old building with good air-conditioning system and modern shower rooms.

Our room had two single beds together, with beautiful old metal frames, so was the most comfortable for us. As with Maria’s other guest houses, a great breakfast and all the staff were friendly, professional and welcoming. It is noisy with passing traffic, but much quieter in the winter months. It is perfect for a seaside holiday and although September is very hot, it also means that the sea is at its warmest.

So, we stayed for one night at each of three guest houses in Gozo, all excellent quality accommodation but offering different things. We loved Ghasra to chill out, do some walking, read a book or even write one. We loved the location of Casa Gemelli in the centre of Victoria, ideal for exploring the whole island as all buses start here. And we loved Marsalforn, a seaside resort with lots of restaurants and bars plus coastal walking. The best option would be 3 nights at each, I think!

    I would recommend all of Maria's guest houses, especially if you want to experience as much as possible from your stay in Gozo. We stayed on the front of the hotel so other rooms may not be quite as noisy for traffic - note it isn't a main A-road so not like a busy road here in UK.

    It looks a beautiful little island so I was interested to see this review. Now I'll go and check the others. The noise doesn't appeal to me but I would certainly go off season. Best wishes to you for 2018!

    Thanks for the recommendation. I've been to Gozo on a day trip from Malta but would love to spend more time there in the future.
