Gibraltar is a great place for a short break and the Caleta Hotel certainly makes part of that break enjoyable.
I stayed here recently following a holiday in Spain and was impressed by the warm welcome by the reception staff on arrival, something hard to find on your travels these days!
This theme seemed to be the trend at this hotel with all staff from bar to restaurant being very welcoming and accommodating.
The Hotel itself is a little worn at the edges but this seems to add a little more charm, but the rooms are spacious with fantastic sea views as the hotel is built in to the rock directly above the sea giving the impression that you are on a cruise ship . Bedrooms although a little dated and probably due refurbishment are spotlessly clean with comfortable beds, tea and coffee making facilities, mini bar,safe and tv. Plenty of wardrobe space, clean towels and toiletries make for a comfortable stay.
I can recommend the restaurant and advise booking as it seems very popular with guests and locals and can be very busy. This is obviously due to the quality of the food and service along with the fantastic sea views .It is also very reasonably priced for the standard of food on offer.
Breakfast in the morning is continental and adequate you can pay for a hot cooked English breakfast as extra if you choose. Once again the staff are very welcoming and helpful with tables cleared quickly, and of course nice sea views while you dine.
There is a Bus stop directly outside which will take you in to Casemates Terminus and on return stops a little before the hotel or a little after, just ask the Driver where to get off if you are a little concerned. Reception will call a Taxi if you prefer fare around £5 one way depending on time of day. This is similar to the fare from the airport or return which varies from around £6 to £8 once again reception will arrange allow 15 to 30 minutes when calling for one.
