Where do I start....I would very very rarely write a bad review but in this case we were just soooooooo Very Disappointed. We booked Gluten Free afternoon tea for the last day of holidays as a treat, were really looking forward to it but was a complete LETDOWN...unbelievably disappointing. Nothing tasted nice, scones tasted hard, not fresh. Sandwich were very... More

Top notch hotel with stunning views across the bay! Close to town but away from hustle and bustle, also near to the cable car and opposite botanical gardens. Would thoroughly recommend. I would also recommend the afternoon tea, served from 4pm.

Fantastic views, extremely clean and friendly staff. The restaurant is great too. I recommend the afternoon tea. The pool is a must, it seems to be a snapshot of a different era and unlike any I've been to anywhere else. If you are staying there I would also visit the botanical gardens which are just across the road. Only drawback... More

We wanted a quick break in a 'comfy UK type of hotel' but obviously somewhere out of the UK if you get what I mean. We chose Gibraltar and researched the iconic Rock Hotel. Trouble is when you read some of the reviews and of course the chosen hotel's website you sometimes get a little disappointed when you actually rock... More

Had an amazing stay, rooms were clean and the staff couldn't do enough for us. Easily the best hotel in Gibraltar ( yes that includes the sunborn) Being a wildlife fan, having the monkeys wander around on the balcony was an incredible experience

Returned to The Rock and another great stay. Although quite busy, on this occasion, due to a large wedding party, she still retained her wonderful calm, layed back atmosphere. Breakfast more than satisfied and the staff and chef in the restaurant must be complemented on their wonderful service and outstanding food, nothing is ever too much, as within The Lounge... 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
