We returned yesterday from our fifth stay at the Rock hotel and are already talking about when to book to return!
Certainly there are one or two minor issues that need to be addressed. For instance we think the staffing levels in the Wisteria terrace need improving, the staff there are very good and work hard but there needs to be at least one more staff on duty there.
Now all the good points!
We always find that the reception staff are terrific, they are friendly, polite and knowledeable.
We always enjoy dinner in the main restaurant, it is good value and the staff are very good. A word here for our favourite waiter, Malik who is a
great character and very professional.
Our standard room was fine, it was clean comfortable with a nice little balcony with great views.
To sum up, this hotel is great value and we so like the general character and atmosphere of the hotel.
We booked with Essential Gibraltar who were very good so it was disappointing to see on their website when we got back home yesterday that they have ceased trading. While they are honouring existing bookings they are not accepting any new ones. Essential Gibraltar is part of Cadogan which has also ceased trading. They are part of the Bland group which also owns the Rock Hotel. So will have to use mygibraltar.com for our next stay at this venerable, wonderful old hotel.
- 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
