About The Burrow

The Burrow is a charming guest house in the historic Southern heart of Tarxien, a short bus ride from the central hub. Guests can enjoy family-friendly accommodation that blends old and new for a truly unique experience.

Seven rooms are spread out over three levels, and include ground floor lodging for less mobile guests. Rooms are tastefully decorated with characterful furnishings and art work, and some rooms have their own patio and private bathroom.

This 400 year old hotel has undergone renovations in both 2006 and 2014. Three living rooms and a picturesque courtyard with plenty of shade offers ample space to relax.

A full continental breakfast is served daily, with items like ham, cheese, yoghurt, cereals, and homemade jams. A microwave is available to guests, and an honesty bar is fully stocked with wine, beer, and non-alcoholic drinks.

The Burrow is within walking distance of the Tarxien Temples.

Positive Reviews

Delightful hosts.

Guests were routinely treated to pleasant interactions and great conversation at The Burrow. Thoughtful owners who made everyone feel welcome were the highlight of many guests' stay.

Oozing with character.

Guests loved the vibe of this traditional stone house, which was resplendent with antique furniture, and interesting historical decor. Guests felt that they were given a true taste of the local culture by staying here.

Close to the airport.

Only three kilometres from the airport, guests were able to arrive and kick off their shoes in no time. Another plus was the close proximity to the Hypogeum of Ħal-Saflieni, not to mention Marsaxlukk, which guests found to be an easy 15-minute car ride away.

Negative Reviews

Far from shops and restaurants.

Many guests wished that there were more local businesses within walking distance. Those who wanted to grab a quick bite to eat, or stop in to a few shops, were faced with a long walk toward Paola. Guests advised bringing a car, but also encouraged potential guests to study directions carefully, as The Burrow can be hard to find.

Limited Wi-Fi.

Some guests were frustrated with Internet access that was only possible from the main lobby. If you are reliant on Wi-Fi to get some work done, you might want to keep this in mind.

Missing staff.

Staff weren't always around, and several guests observed a vacant front desk or breakfast area. The busy owner of this bed and breakfast is also reportedly raising her large family at the same location, and guests had to compete for attention from time to time.
