“A tired, unloved hotel.”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

The darkness as you enter the hotel is in stark contrast to the blazing sun reflected off the clear sea outside. Unfortunately little seems to have been done to upgrade the hotel since it opened 20 odd years ago. With its location and views it should be one of the best in the Mediterranean. But maybe the owners are more interested in their other properties. The 'Club' room we upgraded to had the most spectacular view over the smell beach looking straight out to sea along the mini-fjord that is Xlendi. The pikes of cigarette buts in the pits of dead plants on the terrace were an indication of neglect. The decor is dated and tired. The skirting coming off the wall, the broken hair dryer, the dribbles coming through the shower, the heavy pumping required to flush the toilet were all sad and unnecessary. The breakfast looked OK at first glance but the ingredients were of poor quality. It was redeemed partly by the lovely location on the promenade.
I won't pay the same money there again unless there are drastic improvements.

beautifull room and view, pity the room is not kept up to date especially the floor tiles which were moving and cracking under out feet. Breakfast ok. Very disappointed with the barman who was working during the final of the Champions league, when during the match he decided to remove the volume of the tv and switched off all the lights keeping us wondering what happened in nearly total darkness.

Sea view rooms really worth the extra. Breakfast wonderful. Evening meals hit and miss. Got ripped off with the credit card charge- make sure you pay in euros. Sexy lady in charge of the restaurant but not everyone else up to speed.. Rooms spacious and comfortable.Hotel is very good but don't go half board. We stayed at the end of May which was fine for swimmng but a couple we met said that high summer was too busy. We used Bellaire Travel and every transfer etc. worked really well. Bus from Xlendi is very good and you can get quickly to all parts of the island.

Room Tip: High sea view rooms best but in May the construction workers started at 5 am

We thought we would stay in Gozo for a change, The hotel staff very friendly couldn't do enough for you waiters Vera Venessa were most helpful. The bedroom was clean and good the seaview was well worth the extra it was a view to die for, Every thing was cleaned to 1st class standard, We were in room 402 great room and of the bay, We stopped half board well worth it meals were good and choice, if you didn't like anything they made something you wanted,
good choice of breakfast more than most hotels, you can get buses just outside and 1.50 euro for any way you go all day, In all we both enjoyed this holiday top class, Will we book here again
you bet we will, Just a big thank you for this great holiday,

Room Tip: we booked room 402 seaview room, all fourth floor seaview rooms are fantastic,

We have just returned from a week at the St Patrick Hotel at Xlendi. We had a wonderful time. The hotel is just yards from the sea with wonderful views. Staff were all friendly and helpful and the food, especially the fish was excellent.

Room Tip: Sea views are well worth the extra, though the courtyard rooms are fine and offer very good value

My wife and I stayed 10 nights at St. Patricks Hotel, booked through sunspottours.com on a bed and breakfast basis. We had seen some of the negative reviews on Tripadvisor but weighed these against the advice of our local travel agent who had stayed here and throughly recommended it. We were pleased we had accepted her recommendation.
The hotel is located on the small promenade of Xlendi, metres from the waters edge. The hotel restaurant is on the ground floor and together with other establishments their tables spill out onot the promenade. Taken together the noise of the waves and the al-fresco diners could become a problem if your bedroom faces the bay and you leave your window open but all rooms are fitted with air conditioning so you have a choice. Bedrooms at the back of the hotel face away from the sea and have a view up the valley but with the village square which is really a car park beneth them. There are bedrooms that will have no external view, just a window into the central atrium of the hotel. Be aware of the implication of the choice you are making when you book. Our bedroom was on the first floor overlooking the bay. It was comfortable, good size with a seating area inside and a balcony seating area too. Housekeeping was excellent with clean towels and the room cleaned daily and the beds changed regularly.
The buffet breakfasts was the useual mixture of English and contental food to suit most of the hotel's mixed clientelle. A couple of times it was necessary to ask for something to be replenished by the staff who were always helpful and obliging. The restaurant is open to non-residents and was a popular choice for a coffee and snack or a full meal.
Wi-fi was free in the public areas and the closest bedrooms and was available for a fee in the other bedrooms. Reception was always staffed and although there was some reluctance to facilitate my on-line check in and print my boarding pass this was probably due to a lack of IT competence rather than anything else.
The rooftop splash pool and jacuzzi is largely a waste of space unless you have an aversion to sea water. It is not big enough to swim in, being on top of the building it is exposed to any wind and it appeared to need cleaning.
Xlendi itelf is a small village that has grown to meet the demands of the tourist trade. It has a small selection of good restaurants and bars, the best ice cream parlour on Gozo, excellent walking around the bay and beyond and several companies operating scuba diving (but see my review of Bubbles Dive Centre, Marsalforn for the best on the island). From the village square the cheap, frequent and reliable buses run to Victoria and the whole of Gozo.
If you are looking for an honest, unpretentious, comforatble hotel in a great location, St. Patricks Hotel in Xlendi is a good choice.
