2 friends and I made a trip to Gibraltar towards the end of March 2012 for a short educational visit to the Rock.
The owner, Clive, is very friendly, offers great advice and makes you feel very welcome.
The apartments are above a printing shop on Governors Street, and so have a great location in the old town, being 5 minutes away from Main Street, Casemates Square, John Mackintosh Square, the Gibraltar Museum and other sights in this area, as well as being a convenient base for exploring much of the territory, with the Ocean Village Marina, Cable Car to the Upper Nature Reserve, and Botanic Gardens all being within a 10 minute walk. Also well positioned for a short uphill walk (15-20 mins) up to the World War II tunnel entrance on the Rock.
If you visit in the cooler months, the apartment can be a bit chilly when you first enter, but column heaters are provided and get the place cosy in no time.
We stayed in the first floor apartment, directly above the shop. The kitchen was well equipped and well stocked with new cutlery and was in a studio arrangement with a lounge complete with TV and two sofas that convert to double beds. The bedroom too was complete with a double and single bed, as well as wardrobes and drawers with the relevant bed linen provided. The bathroom was accessed from the bedroom and consisted of toilet, wash basin and bath shower, all clean and presentable.
These apartments are highly recommended and I would definitely stay again should I visit Gibraltar in the future.
