“The staff win it for me.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

You may think your driver has gone wrong as you have to go through a residential area of small roads to get to the Cornucopia right on the edge of town.
I have been twice this year ( Jan. and Feb.), the hotel is also on the edge of a valley . I have had torrential rain one day each visit and the valley is an immaculate collection of little well kept terraces in all shades of green. ( Probably not so from May on).
Being labelled as "inland" I was suprised to see that the valley leads down to Marselfon on the coast and sea views.To have these views you need to be on the front of the hotel, or in the bungalows ( fully equipped flats ) opposite. The first time l was on the side, could still see Marsalfon, but was in the shade, this might be a plus in summer when you can walk through to enjoy either of the pools within the hotel grounds as you wish.
The rooms are spacious and kept very clean. The bungalows have easy room for four.
The food is good, the breakfast has ample choice ( the little bread rolls with onion are being missed here !) One thing I would like to see is smaller ammounts of hot food put onto the buffet more often than one huge tray that can sit there for a long time.
The hotel could do with a bit of zhushing up here and there so long as the charachter of the place is not lost and it's hard working, pleasant and loyal staff still want to work there, and it's regular clients keep coming back to keep the friendly atmosphere.

Room Tip: For the views, you want either a front or corner room.

We loved this holiday. It is nothing like your usual package tour hotel. It is quite small and very olde worlde with lovely staff and comfortable rooms. Breakfast is the standard euro buffet and lots of it. The evening meals are a la carte except Friday which is carvery night. All evening meals are splendid and cooked from fresh. Puds are not very exciting but you probably won't manage more than a mouthful. We travelled with Mercury Direct and will definitely repeat book with this company. Gozo is great,the Cornucopia is great. Don't go if you like noise and clubbing. Do go if you like scenery and peace. While there visit the Cafe Reale in the village square for fantastic cakes and very reasonable lunchtime snacks.

According to the Independent (I) newspaper of 20th February 2014, in rave reviews of the best islands in Europe (TripAdvisor website) Gozo is voted number 3 out of 10. We agree. Just returned from our second holiday there. As seasoned travellers who NEVER return to a destination we have broken our rule. The Cornucopia Hotel and the delights of GOZO drew us back. it's like coming home. Loyal staff at the `Cornucopia are genuinely welcoming, service is lovely, rooms with valley views are superb and value is great.

We like walking of the downhill non- heroic kind. The island offers fantastic coastal and valley walks where there is always a bus waiting to take you back up the hill.

Room Tip: Work out whether you prefer the sun in the morning or the afternoon.

I've stayed a couple of times in this hotel, and I was always happy with the service and room, everything. It's a pity that there was no free wifi in the rooms but only in the dining area. I find that a bit odd that a guest needs to pay extra for wifi.

Stayed in the Cornucoppia hotel last June and had a most enjoyable time., so much in fact that we've booked in again for this June which is something we never do return to the same place the following year
The staff,food,and location are excellent and the Hotel is just the right size
Perhaps the bathrooms could do with some attention and somebody should be available to carry luggage to rooms
Apart from that can't wait to see everybody there in June
Local buses are ok but tend to turn up when they feel like it,so maybe hire a car for a few days to see the island.

Room Tip: Try for a valley view room apparently they are the best views.

The hotel was comfortable and welcoming. The staff were all friendly especially in restaurant.
Food was average, coffee... Nescafé , o.k. If you like that, we went to the town cafe for coffee! Met some lovely people and beautiful cats!
Gozo Is an amazing place, lots to do and see. Travel by local buses, very cheap, timetable needed. We fell for the taxis con that buses were slow and journey would be 2 hours. We later discovered the buses went to ferry, much, much cheaper and took 20 minutes!

We stayed for one night in the Junior Suite for my boyfriend's birthday. The room was very spacious, clean, large balcony, central heating, and spacious bathroom. The scenic view was incredible. We were on a B&B basis. The breakfast was good, and staff nice and helpful.

A suggestion is to refurbish the bathrooms, and a few details in the room such as the shades, lights, and doors.

We had an overall very good stay, and we would stay again. Thanks

Room Tip: the view of the junior suite is great, especially during sunrise. recommended
