The location was perfect. A supermarket across the street and a bus station within 2 minutes of walking. The people working at Portside Lodge were very helpful and nice. The rooms are very clean and the roof terrace is amazing. We had a perfect stay in Malta and everything for a very good price. And if we, 6 students, appreciate the price than its seriously good ;)
The apartment is nice, large living room with kitchenette, bathroom with bathtub (and a washing machine that we did not use). The furniture is new, well cared for and so it's nice. Is well equipped with dishwasher good plates, glasses, etc ... There was stuff to wash the dishes. In the reception the people are friendly and provide all information needed to our stay. Just in front there is a convenience store with a very extended schedule (6h / 22h I think) which is great for those who want to go for a walk and be able to go shopping without having to worry about the time. The location for us was good because Malta is a small island and wanting to visit it all, as we did, any place is good as long as you avoid those ones which are hard to leave with the car because you lose a lot of time in the localities. It has a garage with elevator with direct access to the apartments which is also good. What I did not like was that there was a strange smell in the bathroom (but I eventually get used to) and above all do not have an outdoor space to dine. We had a small balcony but facing the rear and no table / chairs for dining. So what we did was to go to the terrace, beautifully arranged with tables and chairs, and have our end of day drink enjoying the sunset.
It is close to Marsaxlokk, friendly fishing village with a good Sunday market (where we bought prawns and figs for a dinner at home) and where we had dinner one night because it has excellent restaurants and is a very beautiful place to stroll.
Absolutely exceptional. Apartments were beyond expectations and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay here again!
I recently stayed at Portside Lodge with extended family for 3 weeks. we had 3 beautiful, immaculate rooms all well equipped with modern appliances. The location of the apartments is excellent, with supermarkets at hand, bus depots up the street and an array of excellent cafes and restaurants all in walking distance. To make our stay even more enjoyable was the excellent customer service and friendliness of the staff. Thank you to Aisllyn, Claire, Yoka and Cindy for always greeting us with a smile, enjoying a chat with us, sharing your knowledge of the island and assisting us in organizing private tours and taxis, nothing was ever too much trouble. Highly recommend.
Excellent, modern, clean apartments in Marsascala, 1 minute walk to main bars, restuarants and habour front. Key pick up was well organised, communication with reception excellent. Apartment had two single beds and 1 double bed, plus sofa bed. Air conditioning in main room and bedroom on pre pay meter, which was good, and only used around 10 Euros for 3 days, as once rooms were cooled down, you didn't need them on, generally turned off at night in the Bedrooms and used the ceiling fans. Overall i would recommend these to anyone staying in Malta. Only 15 mins Taxi to Valetta.
