"Ok apartment-poor management"

So we stayed at this apartmet July this year.So it was 6 of us adults and 2 babies staying in this apartment.Originally it was 4 of us with babies,but last minute my sister and her husband decided to … More

97 per cent of reviews are very positive and compliment the service offered and standard of our apartments. However, there is always an exception as is the case with these clients.
1) Initial booking was for 4 adults and 2 babies. The 100 square meter apartment does not cater for a larger group. In the last minute we found out that they were 6 adults and 2 babies. We were deceived because we were told that they were 4 adults and not 6. They obviously wanted an additional 2 people to squat without an increase in price.
2) We had several complaints from neighbours owing to the constant noise during late hours on the roof. We also received a call from a neighbour since clients hung clothes over electricity cables.
3)We received the following email from the apartment block Association:

"Sorry to have to email you over this, but I just thought to let you know that the new tenants in your flat have not got off to a good start here. They have used my part of the roof and left papers and cigarettes on the floor and in my plants, they have damaged the chain holding the key to the roof and torn the notice next to the door, they have left garbage outside in the middle of the stairs on a Saturday afternoon when the garbage collectors come on a Monday morning, and they are leaving the main door open, posing a security risk to everyone.I am a bit concerned and hope that this behaviour on their part does not continue as it would make things unpleasant for the rest of us."
4) The cot was torn and taped by client. The cost to change the zip was 20 Euro ( labour and cost of zip ) plus an administrative cost of 10 Euro ( for the cleaner who traced a tailor who fixes cots and also includes the delivery of the cot to and from the apartment by the cleaner ). We believe that this charge is minimal since we could have also just replaced the cot with a new one at a superior price. If the client feels he was robbed since we deducted the cost to fix it, we genuinely feel that he is trying to abuse as he did with the number of people staying at the apartment.

The key to the washing machine cabinet was provided with the set of keys. Their insistence via email to provide a washing machine cabinet key over the weekend was not appropriate. We refused further assistance to these clients owing to their terrible attitude and behaviour. We do not know whether people work round the clock in Lithuania but we surely deserve to sleep. Finally, the precise distance from Mellieha to St. Julian's is 17 km and not 30 km as stated by client who seems to think that Malta is bigger than it actually is. Unfortunately, sometimes we get clients of this kind.

"Second Visit follow up review"

My wife, son and I were lucky enough to stay yet again this year in this charming apartment, sadly this time for only a week, from 25th September 2012. Paul, the owners representative, kindly met us … More

Thank you so much for your review and repeat custom. Looking forward to welcoming you again next year.

"Great place for your holidays!"

I've just got back from my one week holidays with my daughter, mum and sister. We all loved the apartment and I wish we could have stayed a little bit longer. The apartment is in a really good location, close to local shops, transport etc. You have to walk around 15 min to the beach but there are local buses every few minutes so this in not an issue. I would recommend Mellieha heights to anyone as we had a really great time.

"Very Basic and slightly disappointed"

I stayed in this apartment with my wife and 2 children in august 2012. On arrival i met the guy paul at the airport who i must say was a really nice guy.After collecting my hire car i followed paul to the apartment and was shocked when asked to pay him 30 euro for the transfer.I phoned the letting agent and was told that this was a mistake and money would be refunded. I was very disappointed on arrival that although the apartment was self catering i would have thought you would have at least had a complementry bottle of water in the fridge or at least some t bags and milk to make a cuppa but nothing. I was also shocked to see that there was a considerable amount of mould around the rubber of the fridge that i cleaned myself and the freezer shelves were full of ice so you could not put frozen food in to it even if you wanted to. After looking around for the washing machine we soon discovered that this was on the roof area and not located in the apartment as first thought but this was not a major problem.
Be prepared to be woken early if sleeping in the double room as although you have the windows closed you can still hear constant traffic up and down the road from about 5am and it is very hard to sleep after being woken. Please also be aware that there are no designated parking area for this property and i found myself driving around for 5-10min trying to find a good parking spot which in the heat i did not enjoy.
The most disappointing aspect of this appartment was being told that the bed linen and towels would be changed half way through the holiday but NO we had the same bed linen and towels for the 2 weeks stay so we was not happy. Please also be aware that if you want great ariel views from this apartment then this is not for you as you look out at other buildings at the front and old garden foliage at the back.

Being also a consumer, I believe that it is a consumer's right to complain about a service or product as long as the consumer is being completely sincere and honest about the said service or product. The reviewer, Paul Newman or his Maltese wife Georgina, omitted to mention that the transfer service was offered on a complimentary basis owing to the length of their stay. Although Paul ( the driver ) erroneously charged them Euro 30 for the trip to Mellieha, the said sum was refunded even though the review made no mention that the charge was actually refunded.

In fact, on the following morning of their arrival ( Friday 17th August ), I was notified by the driver about the charge and I immediately took the initiative to phone the Newman's to inform them that this was a mistake on the part of the driver. The money was refunded within a few days of their arrival - this was not mentioned in the reviewer's complaint. The reviewer in his complaint states that he "phoned the letting agent". This is also misleading on two counts. Firstly, we are the owners of the apartment and not letting agents ( and the Newman's are well aware of this ). Secondly, it was the undersigned who took the initiative to phone. In fact, I spoke to Georgina ( who informed me that her husband Paul was unavailable as he was in the shower ). I informed her that the taxi charge was a genuine mistake on the part of the driver and Georgina then complained that there was no bottled water in the apartment. I explained that the apartment is self catering ( the arrival was only at 4.00pm and there was ample time to buy some groceries).

In our brief conversation, no mention was made about the 'mould' around the rubber of the fridge and although I cannot really comment on this ( since this point was not brought up in our brief discussion ), I have never had a complaint on the cleanliness of our apartments.

Regarding the change of linen and towels, the reviewer is absolutely correct to say that there was not a change of linen and towels. This skipped our mind entirely and for which we apologise. We would have appreciated it, if the reviewer reminded us mid way through the fortnight rental. This entirely skipped our mind as normally linen and towels are changed mid way though a fortnight rental.

The comment about the constant traffic is, however, misleading and unfair. The apartment is in a very quiet road ( as all our guests can vouch ) even if the apartment is being depicted as though it is on a highway or alongside a railway station. Possibly cars pass by the road at 5.00am but I wonder how many cars are on the street at that time. We never advertised that there is a designated space for parking but that there is unmetered parking on the street leading to the apartment and nor have we advertised that the apartment has the views depicted in the complaint.

All in all, it is not morally correct to vilify the apartment and the efforts of people who give a good service. It is duty of the consumer to be correct, truthful and honest in his or her remarks without misleading other people on such a powerful means as is Trip Advisor. Prior to putting pen to paper, it would only be morally appropriate not to mislead readers and to state facts correctly ( spelt correctly and the correct use of grammar would also be a plus ).

"Just book it!!!"

My wife, son and I were lucky enough to stay in this apartment for two weeks from 19th June 2012. It is very well appointed, spacious and clean and will meet all your needs, it is literally a home from home. The property is situated on a very quiet street two back from the main road and therefore is nice and quiet. It's location couldn't be more convenient for the village which is literally 5 minutes walk away. The owner is very accessible via cell phone, sms or e-mail and provides free airport transfer, or, in our case led us to the apartment (we had hired a car at the airport). Importantly we did not have any problems finding a parking space.

During our stay there was an unusual heat wave with temperatures soaring to 36C, I initially thought that this would cause a problem with the apartment becoming too hot as there is only air con in the master bedroom, but this was not the case, in the lounge area there is a window which opens into a service duct, opening the window allows the heat out of the flat, I thought I would mention this as coming from cold wet England it took me a couple of days to understand the dynamics of the building design. Once the sun has set, it is wise to open the windows to allow the breeze through, but make sure the mosquito net (built into the window) is covering the window opening.

Very handy for the local restaurants and bars, especially the Commando Bar & Restaurant close to the Church, which in my opinion serves the best steaks in Malta. The owners Fabio, Mary and son Damien make you feel especially welcome as do the locals that frequent the bar, and the prices are very reasonable.

We totally agree with the previous review and likewise would not hesitate in recommending this apartment, we will certainly be using it again the next time we visit Malta.

We have previously stayed on two occasions in Hotels in Mellieha, I wish we had found this apartment instead, it is wonderful not being tied to hotel meal and maid service regimes. This made for a very enjoyable holiday in a very beautiful country with a fascinating history populated with genuinely friendly people who are not trying to rip off the tourist..

Thank you very much for your kind review. It was a pleasure. Graham

"A beautiful hidden gem of an apartment in a wonderful part of Malta!"

My friends and I stayed in this apartment for 5 days in September. The apartment is newly renovated and furnished, and comes with all modern conveniences such as fridge, oven, crockery and (should you need it), washing machine.

The apartment is spacious and clean and in a great location. It is situated in a beautiful street amongst a lot of traditional Maltese buildings, and only a 5 minute walk from some wonderful restaurants and bars, as well as supermarket, bakers and other shops. The beach is a lovely, scenic 15 minute walk, there are also regular buses at the end of the road which take only 5 minutes to the beach (we used these at the end of the day when we were tired from resting at the beach all day!).

I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment as a lovely base for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. The owners were more than accomodating with our requests and even kindly provided airport transfers for us.

Thank you very much for your kind review. It was a pleasure. Graham
