I would recommend staying at the burrow to anyone. It is a fantastic alternative to the often busy and characterless hotels, and the welcome from the entire family is great.
The roof terrace is a lovely place to just relax and enjoy a drink and a chat whilst the BBQ warms up!
I can't wait to visit again.

I have just returned from staying at The Burrow. It is the beautifully restored 500 year old home of Frank and Chiara and their delightful children in the quiet locality of Tarxien. Around the breakfast table in the morning there are guests from various parts of the world, drinking excellent coffee and enjoying Chiara's first class home-made marmalade. Interesting and animated conversation was to be shared too and a good amount of laughter and this was also to be had over a delicious and healthy dinner on the roof top at night. I found Frank and Chiara caring and interested people, fun yet sensitive to the various needs of all who stayed. Doris, their helper, is a particularly warm presence, and the house is spotless. If you want an interesting experience and to stay with a lovely Maltese family, this is the place. Janina - Exmouth, UK

Absolutely fantastic this beautiful home, lovely family you felt like part of the family because you were made to welcome. I am sorry I did not come to this area sooner. Chiara and Frank could not have helped more - had an absolutely beautiful meal with the family on the roof top. This is one place I shall definitely return to.

Absolutely recommended!

While booking you should consider that it's a family-run guest house - as for us, much more intersting place than a five star hotel.

Not for petty-minded finicking people jiggling the staff all the time but respectful ones who are rather curious to a wonderful family living in Malta too.

Whenever returning to Malta we'll choose them again. Tho we don't have other experiences with accomodation in there, are sure that it just can't be better.

Besides, Tarxien is an excellent location.
