Fantastic stay in Sliema
Captain Charles and his wife run a fantastic houseboat which makes a great change for a boring hotel. I spent the afternoon relaxing on the sun deck before being whisked off to Valletta by speed boat for the evening. Then after dinner called Captain Charles to again taxi us back to the houseboat for a night cap of Malt Whisky. Simple the best night in Malta!

Solo trip to Malta
Was met with a warm welcome from owners Charles & Daria & there is a friendly family atmosphere on the boat. Cutty Jean has lots of character as it was a working fishing boat. The cabin (room) was clean & comfortable. There is a buffet breakfast provided on deck which was perfect for relaxing especially with a drink in the evening. Restaurants & cafes are all around & all the boats going around the island are close too, but its still quiet & peaceful on the boat. The ferry to Valetta is a 5 minute walk away. If I ever return to Malta I will definitely stay here again.

I wasn't sure what to expect about staying on a boat, but the MS Cutty Jean was a great place to do just that. I felt immediately welcome by the crew. If you are afraid of staying on boats because of sea sickness, don't worry - the rocking of the sea put me to sleep every night. The Cutty Jean was located right next to a bus stop, making it very easy to use public transportation to get around Malta. We were also very close to the cruises and day trips. I recommend staying here, I wish I could have had more time. I also recommend bringing a small bag or duffel, as the rooms are big enough to accommodate for sleeping. This isn't your typical hotel, but that's what I like about it. The Cutty Jean made my experience in Malta so much better.

House boat in Sliema, Malta
As you would expect a boat to be - small and little headroom, so not ideal for the taller, larger person. Tiny toilet and separate shower - not like the one shown in the photos of the property. That aside, reasonably comfortable. Owners very hospitable. Nice continental style breakfast on the deck. Had booked a cabin but was given the room where the steering wheel/controls were which had a larger bed. However, there was no sink to wash my hands after the loo or to brush my teeth and, although there were curtains around und the bed area there were none along the main front window so I did not feel happy getting undressed for bed or changing into my swimming costume with the day trip boats going past. When I said I was not happy I was moved into a cabin which had a small sink and some privacy so was much better, although a bit claustrophobic. Great if you want something adventurous or a bit different but think carefully about bathroom arrangements. Obviously shared facilities and no paper allowed down toilet. I had to use the loos in the local shopping centre or fast food restsurants which is when I wished I had booked a hotel! Nice to meet other travellers for a chat if you are a single traveller.

A fantastic nautical experience
A fantastic nautical experience—the waves rock you to sleep. Really nice Mediterranean breakfast.

Perfect location in Sliema, just 5 minutes walk from some nice restaurants and bars, but still quiet. Beautiful views of Valletta and a short walk to the ferry across the bay to Valletta or 20 minutes walk to St Julian's Bay. Spotlessly clean cabin, lovely continental breakfast spread. Our host Charles and his wife couldn't be more friendly and went the extra mile to be helpful and look after their guests. Something totally different to one of the standard hotel rooms. Highly recommended!

Awesome experience on a boat
One of the best experiences on the cozy boat Cutty Jean. Actually I do not know how to live in ordinary hotel now. When after breakfast you can dive into the sea directly from the boat, or read a book in the evening lying in the hammock with perfect views on the city. Of course there is not so much space on the boat, but that makes very cosy environment.

Erilainen vaihtoehto.
Ihan mahtava paikka! Kyseessä siis entinen troolari josta tehty hotelli. Huomioi että kyseessä on aika pieni laiva joten vessa ja suihku ovat myös kompakteja :D (yhteiskäytössä). Erinomainen muutaman yön majoitus, ihan viikkoja en täällä olisi. Kapteeni ja hänen vaimonsa olivat erittäin ystävällisiä. Aamupala ok tasoa. Kaiken kaikkiaan hyvä maku jäi kokemuksesta.

Urlaub auf dem Boot - ein schönes Erlebnis
Liebe Daria, lieber Charles, danke für einen schönen Urlaub! Wir haben die Zeit bei Euch an Bord genossen - dank Eurer Aufmerksamkeit und Freundlichkeit. Die Gespräche mit Euch und den anderen internationalen Gästen, das sehr gute, täglich frische Frühstück, und das ein oder andere Getränk an Deck haben einen perfekten Rahmen für unsere Ausflüge auf der Insel geschaffen. Alles Gute! Stefan und Stefan
