“Excellent stay”
Reviewed 6 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Portside Lodge was great: newly renovated, spotlessly clean and in a central location to enjoy and explore Marsascala. Aislynn and her family are very welcoming and helpful, even providing some essential groceries ready and waiting in the fridge on arrival - a nice touch. Aislynn was also very helpful booking taxis for us during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in a 1-bedroom apartment, which was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. A cot was kindly provided for our little girl, and a high chair too, which was very helpful. The roof terrace was a nice extra surprise - spacious and a good place to get some breeze in the hot weather. All-in-all, an excellent experience.

“Nice and brand new”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed 8 days at Portside lodge with 5 people. The apartments are nice and brand new.
The building has a private parking, nice lobby and big roof terrace.
Marsascala is a bit off route of the main beaches and cities of Malta, but it has a nice bay.

“The Hilton of Marsaskala - and Aunty came too!”
Reviewed 15 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We found out about Portside Lodge when we visited Malta in May and immediately booked to stay in September - when we knew we had got flights already booked and so could confirm dates. .Charles was on duty when we popped in and he was a treasure! He willingly showed us around and to see an example room. Well - it is not a room it is an excellently equipped, fully furnished, beautifully decorated, delightful set up. A generous sitting area, sofa, large TV, telephone, air conditioning and or over head fans, super fitted kitchen with modern appliances, large fridge freezer, beautiful bed linen and towels, quality curtains and drapes and some have the added benefit of a small balcony with furniture.
We then came home and contacted Aislynn to book for July and August. Aunty wanted to come with us in July so we had to upgrade to a 2 bedroom and this was excellent and we had a front balcony with some views of the village. They put in a welcome pack which is good when you arrive late and want to be able to have a cup of tea or a sandwich. As I have said the bed linen is of the best quality and they allow at least 2 bath towels and 2 hand towels per person - these are lovely white cotton. In the bathroom there is a new washing machine so you can wash your towels every other day and they dry in a flash. This suits us well as we love to have fresh towels especially when it is 90 degrees and hotter! Don't forget this is a self-catering establishment - but has the facilities of a really good hotel. Everything is extremely clean and there are extra pillows, blankets, a clothes airer, an iron, a wash basket, a hair dryer - everything you could imagine. We were absolutely delighted. Charles and Frances - (Mum and Dad) are charming, helpful, polite and make you feel like you are family. There is more here than you can possibly hope for in a self catering set up and I really, really hope that future guests (as it has only recently opened) treat it with respect. The cutlery, plates, glasses are all of high quality and it would be sad if the wrong type of guests do not respect what is available. Kitchen is with large cooker, microwave, toaster and a full set of kitchen tools for cooking etc.. They seem to have thought - and installed everything. It is five star quality.
While we were there they opened the roof terrace, yet again, they have spared no expense and kitted it out with soft astro turf and separate little areas of decking with chairs and tables plus recliner chairs and umbrella's. It is a mini heaven and gets the evening sun until about 7pm. If there can be more - well, yes there is: they have a wonderful underground car park with electric doors and access and a lift direct from the car park up to your room. This was so good for Aunty who is not good on her legs and walks with a stick or assistance. Having an apartment all on one level was great for her and the added benefit of a lift to go down to ground floor, or down to the car park or even up to the roof terrace was a great help to us in moving Aunty around.
Well done Aislynn, Charles and Frances. You have provided something that Marsakala needed so badly and you have done it extremely well. We are sure you will be extremely busy and very successful.
Thank you for a wonderful, trouble free experience. 5 Star!
