“Very convenient and comfortable apartment on the seafront”
Reviewed 4 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

people found this review helpful

We stayed in this apartment for a week for Christmas 2013. It is very conveniently situated just about on the seafront (one building up the side street), with quick access to restaurants, bars, shops, ferries, boat trips and a great view. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable, with two shower rooms, one ensuite, good kitchen, TV, and wifi. We hired a car and managed to find somewhere to park it on the street nearby each evening, even though it was very busy in Christmas week with local people. All the booking and enquiry arrangements were very smooth and handled promptly by the owners, and it was a great bonus to be collected from the airport and taken straight to the apartment, and to have a welcome pack of milk, bread, cheese, ham, butter. When our car hire delivery fell through, they quickly arranged an alternative within an hour. Some reviewers have commented on noise in the area, but we found it to be quiet in the apartment and were not disturbed.

We would like to thank these guests for having stayed with us and for having written such a lovely review.

It is always our goal to make our guests feel immediately at home once they step onto the island, and having our driver waiting for you at the airport to take you straight to our apartment, plus a welcome food pack, is often a good start to customer satisfaction and knowing that there is someone there should you ever need attention. Trying to give that little bit extra doesn't cost much, and we probably realize that we are one of the few property owners who deliver such a service, but it certainly helps make our guests' entry that much smoother and hassle-free. It is always gratifying to know that guests appreciate our service and for this we thank you, and also for having noted it in your review.

Should you ever decide to return to Malta it will again be our pleasure to greet you with the same enthusiasm.

Warm regards

My son and I stayed in this apartment in march 2013. Firstly we were picked up on arrival, with a car waiting ( very nice!! ) all arranged by the owners. Then was shown into the apartment and everything was explained to where everything was and how everything worked. There was also a complimentary pack of bread, milk, tea, coffee, cheese and even a bottle of bubbly for me. I kept where we were staying from my 11 year old son a secret as I knew it would be a huge surprise to him, as after viewing all the pictures of the apartment I knew he would just love it. And he did as did I, it is very spacious, separate bathrooms, large kitchen/diner oh and the absolute icing on the cake for us that made it really fab was the nice big tv with cable, wifi, the Jacuzzi and pool table. Brilliant!!! We were so central that I only hired a car for two days as everything was so accessible. Restaurants, takeaways, busses, ferries and trips all on the doorstep. I strongly recommend a fishing trip it was excellent, in fact I would also recommend that if you do go fishing you find mike, who has a boat with his dad and brother, they really look after you! So thank you Jo and to all your helpers we loved it and hope to see you in summer, please fit us in!

Thank you for having stayed with us and for posting your review. It was our pleasure to have met you and your lovely family and to have contributed to making your stay as comfortable as possible. Having stayed with us for almost a month over Easter, your experience in Gold is invaluable as it helps future guests to better understand what the apartment offers and its pristine location, practically surrounded by everything anyone will need while on holiday. It is good to know that the school you attended was very close and that you also made full use of the bus service (just across the road, as are the ferry boats as well).

We hope the children loved the Easter eggs and the 'figolli' and trust you had a wonderful holiday experience which you will hold dear for a long time to come. We look forward to hearing again from you and to have you again as our guests in the future.

Warm regards and hugs to all

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 2 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

person found this review helpful

Stayed here for just under a week with my partner and father. Location is perfect - literally across the road from buses and ferries. Apartment is on the 2nd floor (there is a lift) with a balcony overlooking the pedestrianized mall - we had no problems with noise from the cafes at all - it was enjoyable watching the world go by. Sliema is an excellent base for exploring the island - public buses are great and you can travel all day for €2.80! The bus info booth is also across the road and they were helpful and provided all the timetables we needed. There are also some excellent restaurants specialising in Maltese dishes nearby. St Julian's is a pleasant walk around the headland and has more entertainment to choose from if you need it. (A handy shortcut to get there is to go up and over on Triq Manwel Dimech). The organization by Josanne was brilliant, she was in contact all the way from the initial booking, and the airport pick up and welcoming food basket were really appreciated. A great break from the endless British winter.

It was a real pleasure meeting with you and your partner and dad. Sliema is really a lovely place and also a great starting point to exploring the island, and we're glad you took full advantage of the location. Thank you for the lovely review and for appreciating the service we provided you. We always try our best to make our guests feel like being at home away from home.

Should you ever visit Malta again, it would be a treat to have you as our guests again.

Once again, a big thank you.

Thank you for the lovely review and for having stayed with us over Christmas. Having such a large and beautiful family of 8 people at this most joyous time of the year, it was only natural for us to decorate the apartment with a Xmas tree, to help add to the festive season. It is always our pleasure to make our guests feel at home, and glad to hear you made full use of the apartment and its many facilities.

We would also like to thank you, on behalf of our driver, for appreciating his work and the transfers from/to the apartment.

Once more, our sincere thanks to you and to your large family for having stayed with us. Should you ever visit Malta again, it would be an honour to hear from you.

“Not quite as written”
Reviewed 18 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

They forgot to mention in the description that the apartment is on the second floor above a very busy and noisy restaurant and the neighbouring apartment is in fact the storage facility for the "Accessorize" shop in the street opposite and is in constant use.
The description of the department states two and three bathrooms, one being en-suite. It is fair to say there is an en-suite to the main double bedrooom that also incoporates the washing machine and tumble dryer. The second bathroom is in fact a cloakroom with a shower. The entrance door to this cloakroom that faces out into the dining and snooker table area is frosted glass and you are fully sillueted when inside. The third bathroom is in fact the jacuzzi!!!!!!
Also not mentioned is the brand new apartment block being built directly at the rear of the two bedrooms so noise is associated with this.
Finally there is the delightful sounds of the broken water purification come air conditioning unit situated in the now enclosed courtyard area at the rear of the two bedrooms that guarntees no broken sleep throughouit the night that belongs to the above mention restaurant.
As for being able to sleep eight, well if you include the two sofa beds in the lounge and the thought of having to use 1.5 bathrooms and only two toilets between the eight of you, then im sure it will be ok!!!
Would i recommend this................................Sorry, NO

This couple came to stay with their parents who had arrived 12 days earlier in the Gold apartment. The answer to this review, we feel, should be read in conjunction with the answer for their’ parents review so as to be able to better understand the circumstances and sequence of events.

It is evident that this couple, contrary perhaps to their parents, had not read the description of the apartment, or even seen the pictures to it. The guests claim that the second bathroom is a cloakroom whereas the third bathroom is infact a jacuzzi. The pictures and description clearly show that the second bathroom infact has a shower, toilet and sink, whereas the so called third bathroom is a large 1.8m diameter jacuzzi in its own alcove (the TripAdvisor website automatically classes this as a bathroom but one can hardly blame us for this). But this is not news to us, or to any of the other guests who stayed here before as the advert amply and clearly describes the set up of the apartment.

We also feel at a loss as to the fact why the guests indicate that we had not mentioned in our advert that the apartment is on the second floor (advert pictures also shows the apartment to have a balcony). The advert however states that the apartment is located on a pedestrianized road surrounded by cafeterias, restaurants, designer shops, shopping arcades, and being just across the road from the ferry boats and bus terminus, and so it is bound to be surrounded by a healthy buzz. It is true that a cafeteria sits at the bottom of the building; it is also true that it is a very popular place, but we fail to understand how the patrons can be heard from the apartment when the entrance to the cafeteria is infact round the corner. A city centre is normally lively with people and so we find it contradictory that your parents find the apartment to be situated in a excellent location (mainly because they had read the advert) and this guest says otherwise. It was not the noise from the restaurant itself which your parents remarked about, but the noise from some of the equipment in the yard below. We have no doubt that your parents had briefed you on the circumstances of these, even before your arrival, and hopefully also explained how we were trying to help. However, we have to again stress that we have had the apartment for the past 4 years and never have we had anyone comment about the noise. The apartment has double glazing throughout, but because we take our guests’ comments very seriously we had, even before your arrival, also approached the cafeteria below in an attempt to help subdue the inconvenience that your parents said they had experienced. The restaurant has infact informed us that they intended replacing this equipment with more modern and silent technology, and in view of the inconvenience caused, had also offered you and your parents, an invitation for dinner at the restaurant. Because, as mentioned here, this was the first case when we had guests complaining about the noise, we have to assume that some of the equipment must have required some repairs, however the restaurant is now willing to replace all this at an exorbitant cost, a figure also divulged to your parents. Unfortunately something like this does not happen overnight.

We would also like to mention that we are still in contact with the restaurant to try to seek some sort of redress, but as this is out of our jurisdiction, we cannot promise that we will be successful. What we promise however is always to put our guests’ interests first and foremost and that we will continue to be in touch with their parents following any developments on the issue.

The parents claim that the daughter and son-in-law only stayed there for the one night, however their review somehow puts doubt to that. The neighbouring apartment is, as stated, a storage facility for Accessorize (shop across the road). The girls working there from time to time come to the place to withdraw a few dresses, although their shop is very well stocked. The shop is open everyday except Sunday, from 09:00 to 19:00, with a lunch break in between. As our guests arrived on the Saturday afternoon, we fail to understand how these guests actually noticed that this apartment is in constant use when in fact, according to their parents, they were not there the following morning, having moved to a nearby hotel. It would be very sad indeed if these guests actually took stock of each and every entry to this apartment instead of enjoying their time in the lovely weather outside. Not one of our previous guests had ever commented about this – the girls and the owners of Accessorize are really sweet and quiet people, and we still cannot see the point of commenting on something so irrelevant.

The guests have also commented about the new apartment block to the rear of Gold. As pointed out by the parents, the noise from this building had stopped after they had complained to us (when we took it up with the contractors immediately upon being informed a week into the parents’ holiday). What again confuses is the fact that works would have stopped on Saturday lunchtime, likewise no work can be carried out on Sunday, so how would these guests be able to comment about ‘noise coming from this building’ when during the supposedly 24-hour period they were there, there was absolutely no work going on (unless perhaps they stayed there longer and we were informed otherwise)?

There are too many inconsistencies in this review but we feel readers have a right to know that the exaggeration is blatant and of an unkind nature, and only aimed to cause us harm.

The apartment can infact sleep 8 people. It is not up this guest or his opinion how others accept to have 2 bathrooms between themselves. We have had both family units and young people who stayed in such numbers, where the price is then absorbed by all. Should this guest like to view other reviews about Gold, he can easily log into our homeaway website for property 444349 and find out for himself.

As to what we have or have not mentioned, the guest does not note that we gave his parents a full refund of his week’s stay with us, even if the reasons for their complaints were due to outside circumstances (even if we were not obliged to); in addition, as a matter of courtesy, we even reimbursed their transport fares for their arrival, departure, and that of their parents’ departure as well (their parents had free transport on their arrival, where my wife and I went to collect them ourselves at the airport at 01:00).

We have in the meantime contacted other guests who stayed with us, both just before and after these guests’ stay to get their own and honest feedback. We trust that these reviews will also show up shortly on the TripAdvisor website.
