Just returned from a week's stay at the Cornucopia and thoroughly enjoyed it. You can't expect a building that is based on an old farmhouse to be ultra modern, but it had character and charm in spades! We found the air con in the rooms (2) we stayed in was perfectly adequate for sleeping and during the day, the fan added extra coolness. Rooms were clean and well-kept - yes, a little dated, but it didn't bother us. We had bed & breakfast and found the breakfasts very good - plenty of choice, well-cooked. The 2 barbecue evenings were superb - so much lovely food! We asked to change rooms, as at first we were in one on the front, which shared a balcony area with 4 or 5 other rooms, so there was not quite so much privacy as we would have liked. The manager, Brian, was really helpful and sorted out a new room for us which had a private balcony and better view. Brian was a fantastic manager, always prepared to help make our stay as good as possible, and other staff were friendly and helpful. As the hotel is relatively small, you can get to know the staff during your stay. Xaghra is a small village, ( a good 10 minute walk from the hotel) but has a number of restaurants all serving reasonably priced, good food and, while we were there, we found village entertainment in the Square on a number of evenings.The Cornucopia is a picturesque, quiet hotel, ideal for relaxing. The smaller pool, in the beautiful central courtyard, is the quieter and the larger, back pool tends to be used more by families. Both are clean and well-maintained and we didn't have any problem finding a free sunbed. For travelling around Gozo by local bus, get a timetable, but be prepared to wait - it's Gozo time!
