Just got back from a five nights at the Rock Hotel, Gibratar. A most delightful hotel with colonial charm and character. Service was very good, polite and traditional, with clean rooms and a superb view of the sea and the charming Alameda Gardens. The hotel is undergoing refurbishment with the expected completion date of July 2014. Nevertheless, all staff were... More

Stayed here recently for a weeks holiday. In light of the refurbishments that were taking place, perhaps management could adjust the price temporarily? I would be happy to return when the whole building has been overhauled, but currently 'faded' is the best term to describe the hotel. Location and views however are really excellent, afternoon visit from the apes was... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at The Rock Hotel. Having booked the hotel back in January, we were informed by the holiday company only a few weeks before we were due to arrive that the hotel was having a refurbishment, and that between the hours of 10am - 6pm there would be disruption during these times....

Went to the Rock again this year because we had such a positive experience last year . The room was nice and clean . There was a major problem with the noise drilling and banging and sounded like scaffolding going up also of hammering . We were disappointed that we had not previously been warned about this . Also the... More

It is difficult to know where to start to describe this relic of the past, dilapidated, out of date, dirty and bug infested. Pretty awful excuse for a down trodden colonial piece of decaying rubble. We stayed here on a number of occasions in the past, both when Gibraltar was a thriving HM military garrison and subsequent to the demise... More

We stayed at the Rock Hotel for three nights in April. Many earlier reviews mention the tatty decor and carpets, but to be honest although yes, both carpets and rooms are showing their age we were well satisfied with both. The room and balcony were clean and totally adequate. The views over the bay to Spain and Africa couldn't be... More

We have just returned from 3 nights at the Rock Hotel. I understand there's a renovation project going on but we were full paying guests on a holiday. I'll start with the pros: *Swimming pool area very nice. Clean, nice bar, good sunbeds (it is over the very busy road though which it doesn't mention on the website) *Good views... More

I really liked this hotel. Not the most modern or luxurious of places, and the decoration is a little tatty in places - but it is full of old colonial charm. Staff were brilliant. Rooms OK with fantastic views from the balcony. Breakfast superb. The best bit was the outside terrace to the bar. There was some extensive renovations going... More

Dear stevemhall, Thank you very much for your review. It is very gratifying to read that we managed to live up to your expectations and that you enjoyed your stay with us. The refurbishment will undoubtedly enhance the old colonial charm that will be retained in the new decorations and furnishings. Best regards, Charles More

I stayed for one night in late March, spending a night in Gibraltar before heading off into Spain and Portugal for the rest of my holiday. I travelled with my father, the holiday being a 65th birthday treat for him. First impressions of the hotel (after a manic taxi-ride from the airport) were good. I waited in line behind a... More

Stayed at the Rock for a long weekend break. The first impression was of a faded old lady. The check in staff were efficient and polite. The room we had was 231 and was at the end of one of the long corridors. These corridors are tatty with plaster falling off the walls and stained and threadbare carpets. The room... 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
