Reviewed 1 July 2014

Stayed here in May 2013, weather brilliant and hotel brilliant. Simple self catering room, nicely refurbished with new furniture and bathroom etc. Room and kitchen area were spotless. Only niggles were no TV in the room, have to pay for WiFi and Aircon and fridge was very loud during the night which bcame annoying. Generally a good hotel!

Shamrock Apartments is just by the Bugibba tourist street. Location wise it's ok. Price for a room is really good but unless you're doing anything but sleeping there you might want to look at something a little more expensive.

The rooms are highly unpersonal, beds are hard and the view from the balcony is a nightmare. The view from the balcony is just a big dry dirty grass court which the locals turned in the a huge parking spot, it's absolutly hideous. The shower has hot and cold water but it's running really really slow and low. The stairhouse is quite loud and busy and you'll hear everything while in your room at night. We payed 10 euros for a wifi network for a week which just barely worked. It was really slow with lots of disconnects.

You'll have a kitchen with a owen, fridge and freezer so if you want, you can cook your own food there. Nothing wrong with the space, we had a pretty big apartment. The owners and staff was friendly but remember that you're just getting an apartment, there's no service to it.

Me and my fiance stayed here while diving in Malta so we weren't really in the room much, pretty much just for sleeping during the night. If you plan to spend most of your time out, it's an affordable place. There's nothing really wrong with this place if you're just prepared to the fact that you get what you pay for. But if you want a nice place to relax in or a romantic room to spend your nights in, look elsewhere.

The apartment at floors 4 and 5 are totally renewed and very good: clean, fully equipped, comfortable.
The position of the hotel is very good, just 300m from Bugibbe center, shops, restaurant and from the seafront.
The apartments at floors 1-2-3 are quite older but also clean.

Room Tip: ask for Studio at floor 4 and 5.

Everything about the Shamrock was just right for us . The cleanliness and comfort of the studio apartment , the transfer from and to the airport and the location were all just what we wanted . Antida and her son were always friendly and helpful . We feel we got an absolute bargain .

My partner and I had a week in Bugibba in January as a treat to ourselves for our 50th birthdays.
Antida and her husband Felix could not have been more helpful.
The weather was windy and pretty cool but the studio apartment was very clean and had all we needed for our stay.
Its not a 5 star hotel, but then, we did not pay 5 star Hotel Prices!
Antida was attentive and obviously cared about her guests enjoying their stay in Malta.
My parents stay there every year and use the older, larger two bedroom apartments but have always enjoyed themselves.
Thanks Both

Stayed here with 3 friends and they were very accommodating- even picked us up at the airport. I would definitely stay here again for a longer period of time- we only had a weekend. However it was nice to be able to save money by cooking in the apartments

Shamrock Appartments - sleeps up to eight by adding additional single beds in the two rooms advertised within the appartment on the website! Rooms and pool appear to be spacious and bigger then it actually is! One bathroom and toilet to share amongst the group, no mention of this on the website! Toilet that clogged up everytime one used it! Kitchen not fully equipped. Air con to be requested when booking, again not mentioned on website! If you stay on the first floor there is no aircon and the rooms do get quite hot and sticky even though you get a fan. List is endless. To be fair the pictures which were advertised on website is clearly not what we were given! We did notify this to the landlord but said not much she could do!
So if you do choose to stay here make sure you request absolutely everything... Not pleased at all UCB girls August 2013

Room Tip: Ask for anything above first floor and with Air Con
