Booked a long weekend away with the wife. The hotel was recommended by a friend. Service was certainly good enough for a 4 star hotel, and everybody was polite and helpul. The room, a junior suite on the 7th floor, was large, clean and well furnished. The Super King Size bed (6 foot wide!) was the most comfortable hotel bed... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was clean as was the bathroom and a good size. The shower was great, very powerful and exactly what we wanted after walking around in the heat of the day. The staff we met were pleasant and efficient. The rooms were serviced to a good standard. The breakfast was excellent,... More

Certainly the best selection of the hotels in Gibraltar, but not up to a four start standard in my personal opinion. A telephone in the bathroom doesn't make you four star, well technically... Huge plus points are the location and the free parking. There was always a parking spot in the covered parking behind the hotel, it was easy to... More

We stayed in the Elliot in mid-June, on arrival I had a problem in processing my credit card but this was resolved in minutes by a very professional lady at reception.

We stayed in the O'Callaghan Eliott for 2 nights over our weekend trip to Gibraltar. Hotel choice is limited there, but as this was rated number one on Trip Advisor we thought this would be the best of the bunch. It would seem that perhaps there is need for a 5* or luxury hotel on The Rock, becasue this hotel... More

My partner and I stayed here for a few nights in May. Check in was quick and easy and the room spacious and clean. However, the 'balcony' is tiny - you wouldn't get one chair out there, never mind two - and the 'sea view' really just overlooks buildings, with a glimpse of the ships in the bay now and... More
