Hi, I recently spent a couple of nights at this hotel and was really taken aback by the staff's service or the lack of. I checked in fairly late (around 9 PM) due to my plane getting diverted to Malaga and adding 2 hours to my journey. I wasn't offered any options room wise - such as ocean facing -... More

Just back from a one night stay at the O'Callaghan Eliott Hotel and it certainly was a well worth stay. I booked direct with the hotel and got a room for £94.00 but on arrival we had been upgraded to a junior suite. Lovely spacious room, clean and tidy. We enjoyed it so much we were planning to stay another... More

Having read the reviews by previous people I was worried about what I was going to find. In actual fact the hotel is not that bad. The front desk staff were OK & immediately changed my room when I found that I had been given one on a lower floor next the the lifts. I had found from previous reports... More

Having now stayed in all 3 of the 4 * hotels in Gibraltar I feel I am in a very strong position to write this review.

Just back from a great weekend visiting mates in Gib and escaping the Wet British summer. I was pleased with my stay and can understand why it's number one in Gib. The staff from arriving to departing couldn't have been nicer and helpful. The hotel is clean, understated. The room for a single travler was huge and very comfortable. Plenty... More

This is definitely not a 4 star hotel. It took 3 attempts for the staff to offer us a room in which we were prepared to stay. On the downside: The rooms were very run-down and tired - e.g. the wooden furniture was covered in severe hot-cup marks, the bathroom mirrors had the 'silvering' peeling of their backs and the...

As previous reviewers have said, there aren't a lot of hotels to choose from on Gibraltar and no clear cut number 1. I am not keen on the apes and some reviews indicated that the Rock Hotel rooms have regular ape visits so I went for the O'Callaghan Eliott. The location is great, close to everything with a nice outside... More

Given that there are not many hotels in Gibralter to choose from, I was not expecting too much from the O'Callahan having previously stayed at the Bristol and not enjoyed it - but all I can say is WOW! If you're expecting 5* luxury beautique you probably won't enjoy this, but if you're after a hotel right in the centre,... More
