The Rock Hotel is in a commanding position giving stunning views from public rooms and bedrooms. Designed to maximise cool breezes, the entrance and reception has marble flooring and loads of plants although it would have been nice if these were in ceramic containers rather than plastic tubs.
Our room with a balcony had magnificent views. Bed very comfy and large. bathroom spotless and looks as if it had been refurbished.
Nice fluffy towels and bathrobes.
Food rated as only ok. Breakfast was disappointing with diluted orange juice and cheap sausages and bacon. Good range of bakery and cereals however.
Reception staff at check in and out very helpful - nice touch being offered a glass of sherry on arrival, but declined. restaurant service just acceptable and waiters not that cheerful hence average rating for service.
Parts of the hotel need freshening up and at £115 for B&B felt it was relying on its former glory Lots of celebs have stayed there.
Overall rating deserves better than average but can't really say it was "very good" but would give it "good"
