We booked two nights here, to be close to the city of Mdina. We were charged 84 Euros a night, for half-board. The half-board was a joke, you got 7 Euros against the A la carte menu, where some of the starters cost over 7 Euros. (A week later in Italy we also paid 84 Euros half-board and got a starter, main course, salad and a dessert included). All it meant, was you had to eat in their restaurant at night.
The owner admitted his business, was doing poorly and he attempts to raise income, by producing higher priced items, than were ordered. Eg we order a small bottle of local mineral water, we got a large bottle of French mineral water delivered instead.
The bathroom was basic, very crapped and unclean. Breakfast was served downstairs, on tables which were covered in fur fabric, that is given a quick brush over by hand between guests.
Mdina is a lovely city to visit at night, without a mass of tourist, just don't stay at the Point de Vue. We have made a complaint to Malta Tourism about the guest house's idea of 'half board'.
