Four star hotel built in the colonial style which has been visited by many famous people. More recently a small colony of Barbary apes have been seen on some of the lower balconies, which guests are warned not to feed. On Gibraltar's Nature Reserve a fine of £500 can be imposed if found giving the apes food. Having previously visited this hotel a few years ago, I was a little disappointed to find the décor looked a little jaded. A little paint had peeled away on the walls, and the grouting in the bathroom was looking tired. However, the welcome sherry, 7 foot wide bed, bath robes, ground coffee and fridge are all still provided in the rooms. In addition, complimentary lollipops and ducks in the bathrooms are now in place. Our bathroom was very spacious and the bath/shower was quite long. The food here is excellent, and the selection provided for the breakfast buffet was plentiful. Being in an elevated position on the side of a hill, all rooms in the hotel and the restaurant have a spectacular view across the Bay of Gibraltar both during day and night time. The Botanical Gardens (one of Gibraltar's green lungs) is just across the road from The Rock, which makes a walk down to the main town more interesting, and the walk back less tiring.
- 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
