The owner has invested much time and money in this hotel over the last couple of years since we stayed here last. It was very good then it is excellent now. We would not stay anywhere else in Malta. Comfy clean rooms most with balcony, generous breakfast and friendly helpful staff

Great Guest house and superb restaurant and bar. Staff extremely friendly. Just a great place to have food or a drink and watch the world go by. Great Pasta. Great Pizza and wonderful main courses. A great to visit.

We enjoyed our four nights stay at Duncan's very much. The room was spacious and clean with microwave and kettle. Breakfast (served from 8-10am) offers various cereals, yoghourts and fruit salad aside from the usual toast. Depending on where your room is located, it might get a little loud in the morning becauseof traffic. If you keep the windows shut,...

Duncan Guest House is situated right on the harbour where there are many nice local restaurants. It is family run and Michael and his family are friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The internet was a bit hit and miss, but overall the guesthouse is nice, and is good value for money.

This cafe restaurant is in the corner of the square with views of the seafront. It has an air conditioned restaurant and lots of outside tables. We visited on market day (Sunday) so the whole area was very busy, but despite the crowds we had prompt service. We only had a light lunch of arancini which was very nice, and...

Okay so it was so good the first time we stayed, and on our return the wonderful island of Malta there really was no point considering anywhere else. But since our last stay the accommodation has been updated and the whole place is looking super, now with a breakfast room serving a choice of continental items to start the day....

Michael and his staff are determined to make your stay successful. Spacious rooms with AC, fridge and good showers. The location is very close to the harbour - full of cafes and restaurants. Michael helped us book a boat hire, and I felt he would fix anything for us. In our absence, he helped move our hire car to make...

We were greeted on arrival and offered coffee, as Michael - who had all our booking details - wasn't around at the time. This wasn't a problem and it was nice to relax for a few minutes in the bar and chat with staff about what we were planning to do during our short stay. We had a studio room...

We stayed here 11 days and it was great. Friendly and helpful staff, large rooms with airconditioning and value for money meals right at the harbours edge. We had the option of a full english or a very enjoyable continental breakfast all served with strong coffee. An easy bus ride into Valletta or even use the Hop-on Hop-off bus made...

2nd time Ive stayed at Duncans and Michael and the family make you so welcome, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The rooms have been updated since the last time I came 5 years ago. Its right on the harbour and the perfect spot close to the peaceful beach near by. Planning another trip there next year already.
