Great staff, always friendly, offers fantastic views, newly refurbished rooms and facilities, one of the best bars around, the swimming pool , outdoor , near the Kaima tent is... More

Stayed here on recommendation, although room and general hotel felt a little bit dated. Room was nice and the bar very classic. The pool area was well kept but again needed a little more love. You get a great view of the rock though...

The refurbishment was fine but the level of cleaning could be improved - I had to remove a nasty stain on our bed headboard with a wet wipe and I would rather not think about it. The hotel seems to have lost what was special about it - the staff seemed to lack attention to detail - so it was... More

Disappointed. Afternoon tea at the Rock Hotel was a tick off my list and upon arrival I had high hopes. However even though we had pre-booked the food was pre-prepped in a glass case in the lounge, no table was set & so we asked to sit outside. We were given tea & sandwiches, but no choice of sandwich fillings... More

We stayed two nights at this beautiful hotel, the rooms have all been refurbished to a very high standard. We stayed with two children under 12 and although they had no family rooms, they ensured our rooms were right next door to each other. Very large rooms with lovely views across the bay. The food in the restaurant was excellent... More

We have visited the Rock on many occasions and were proud to take four friends there for dinner. Sadly the staff i, (two elderly gentlemen) in the bar were woefully un helpful. We asked to see a menu after it took one of them 15 to get our drinks, it never arrived! They couldnt of cared less if we were... More

“Afternoon tea @ The Rock Hotel- terrace restaurant.”  What a fabulous location, with stunning views.....but that's where the positivity ends. On arrival the waitress pointed to our laid table outside on the terrace,when on sitting,another waiter removed the linen napkins & handed 4 of 5 guests a paper napkin instead. We then waited 15 minutes to be asked what... More

Have stayed here several times and it is still as good as ever. The pool area is excellent along with the views from the balcony of our room. Drinks are reasonably priced alone with good food around the pool at lunch time. Breakfast was lovely which we had on the terrace. The room was very nice but bathroom very tiny.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Rock Hotel's 1930s origins are evident in the subtle colours and timeless decoration combining an element of the colonial with more contemporary touches. Ideal for business or leisure, the hotel offers complimentary wifi and smartly designed work or rest areas. The soul of the Rock Hotel lies in its charming decor and friendly and accommodating staff. Bedrooms are elegant and refined and offer the ultimate in comfort. The spacious windows and balconies let the Mediterranean sunlight in and provide breath-taking views of the Bay and Straits of Gibraltar. Each room offers its own unique welcoming atmosphere to make you feel at home. Guests begin the day with a hearty breakfast in the elegant Restaurant and Wisteria terrace. Later in the day, a modern style lunch is served followed by fine dining in the evening. The stylish and sophisticated surroundings are enhanced by the flavours of Mediterranean and Moroccan cuisine as well as the carefully selected wine list. The Lounge Bar is the perfect place to enjoy a coffee, afternoon tea, cocktail or delicious snack, paired with one of the most impressive views of the world - where Europe meets Africa - the bar is open as from 12 noon till midnight. Errol Flynn, Alec Guinness, Andres Segovia and Winston Churchill are just some of the famous names that appear in the historical guest books. ... more   less
