This is a great and probably the best known hotel in Gibraltar, the service is fantastic and the view is amazing, just a little uphill walk out from town this hotel has it all. Just over the road there is a quant pool and bar available for use (seasonal). Good rates are available as well.

We have visited the Hotel many times within our family from the late 60s. The staff starting at reception on arrival were excellent, we were given our room number even though we arrived 11.00am knowing we wouldn't get into our room (Same as other hotels). Being prepared I had in a bag on top of one of the cases with... More

We booked here despite some older reviews saying the decor was tired as we knew the hotel was being refurbished. I'm glad we took that chance. While the exterior, reception and restaurant were indeed a bit shabby (Aug 2014), that was only beause they were the part still awaiting refurbishment (due for completion Oct 2014). The rooms on the other... More

We stayed here the night before our flight on the way back from Spain in case there were problems on the border. It reminded me of a hotel in Torquay, we had a good dinner and it was all silver-service staff and the waiters were charming and friendly and proud to be Gibraltar born and bred, nothing was too much...

The hotel itself is sited in the most wonderful location. What could have been a wonderful experience though was let down badly by the very poor quality and selection of food, especially considering the price, quality of service and its staff (with the exception of the Receptionist who was helpful).

We have stayed at this hotel several times and never been disappointed. It is also undergoing a major refurbishment until October 2014. Reception staff always very helpful, and the same can be said of the restaurant and bar staff. Always prompt attention in the bar area and the food in the restaurant is definitely of the highest quality, both cooked... More

My friend and I have just arrived at this lovely hotel. we read some reviews and were a little concerned. The concerns were completely unfounded. What a fabulous place. The rooms, views and friendly staff are all first class and the pool is simply perfect. We are very excited about spending the next few days here. What a lovely welcome!

We decided to stay at 'The Rock' as it is, decidedly, the iconic hotel of Gibraltar. Although our travel company hadn't mentioned that it is currently under renovation, we did read from TripAdvisor reviews that there was some building work, and contracted the hotel who ensured they would do their best to keep us away from any disruption. The hotel... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built on Gibraltar's western flank with stunning views across the bay, it has been welcoming guests since 1932. As the colony’s premier hotel the guest book is littered with famous names as diverse as Sir Winston Churchill and the Two Ronnies! Tastefully renovated, it has the character of a bygone era with the facilities of a modern 'Grand Hotel'. Traditional afternoon tea is served in the lounge and the hotel’s Rib Room Restaurant is recognised as one of the finest places to dine in Gibraltar. The atmospheric Barbary Bar and adjoining wisteria covered terrace are wonderful places to be on a summer’s evening, both are delightful meeting places, the latter a popular venue for weddings. The hotel’s pool area and gardens have an air of tranquillity, yet the centre of town is only a 10-minute downhill walk. ... more   less
