“An amazing stay in Xaghra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

A lovely, tidy and quiet place, a welcoming host is what you will find for sure at Sardinella in Xaghra.

Kelvin will prepare a continental breakfast in the morning, ask if you enjoyed your day visiting the island, chat in the evening with you about everything and anything regarding economics, culture, life,...

That is what Sardinella is : more than just a private room in a typical gozitan farmhouse, it is an atmosphere that will bring you good memories whenever you are thinking about your stay in Xaghra.

Stayed July 2014, travelled solo

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of staying for three nights at Sardinella b&b. We had a great time. Kelvin is a lovely host and has an interesting background, he also does as much as he can so you can enjoy your stay at the fullest. Xaghra is a relaxing town with loads of quality restaurants. In short, if you're looking for a relaxing week away from it all go to Sardinella B&b; you'll thank me later for the advice!

Room Tip: Try room Pacifika or Zurqa, they have a balcony which offers a nice view over the island

Sardinella is a comfortable bed & breakfast run by a charming host who immediately made us feel relaxed and at ease. We were provided with a continental breakfast which was tasty and we were able to enjoy this by the splash pool this coupled with the super bedroom made the over all stay at this venue very enjoyable.

There were several nice restaurants in the Square which was a 10 minute walk away an all round good break.

Room Tip: The rooms on the first room were lovely and cool to come back to on a hot day

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
SARDINELLA ...nestles into the quaint, twisty roads of a vibrant little village named Xaghra (pronounced Shara). A charming "home from home" B and B, clad in traditional honey-coloured stone from the Gozitan hills, Sardinella is run by Kelvin Cooksley, a warm, authentic host who naturally exudes the simple hospitality of the African environment into which he was born. A fully trained chef, Kelvin has cooked in well known hotels and restaurants from Africa to Europe. He personally prepares your continental breakfast each morning, served either in the large kitchen/dining area or pool courtyard. If you want a small, intimate and friendly atmosphere, this is the place! Three comfortable bedrooms available, each with en-suite bathrooms. A sunlit courtyard, complete with swimming pool, barbecue and lounge area is ideal for relaxing after a busy day snorkelling, diving, walking ,cycling or whatever takes your fancy on this magical island. If you want to sit back and relax without lifting a finger, Kelvin will gladly barbecue for you for a small fee. Your budget? Reasonable summer rates are: 95€ double or twin room including continental breakfast. Minimum 2 nights' stay. Winter rates even lower, contact host for rates. Transport: Kelvin can meet you at the airport in Malta for a normal taxi rate approx. 40 €. Or if you make your own way to Gozo (the ferry trip is part of the magic!), Kelvin can meet you in Xaghra Square and guide you to the B and B. Bonnes vacances! Mission Having travelled and lived in various countries, my desire is to help make your holiday an enchanting one to remember! Founded Kelvin R Cooksley ... more   less
