Arrived tired and fraught (read over it all) at midnight and were in the room within 10 minutes with bags delivered... and what a view of the harbour!.A series of plastic ducks in the bath (deep, lots of hot water), tea and coffee, terrific beds- what more does anyone need? The apes are a bit of a problem, and tried... More

We have just returned from yet another lovely stay at The Rock.

Old fashioned hotel in Gibraltar. The view is spectacular, large rooms. If you like places as they were in the early 60s ( myself I do ), then sleep there. Staff very friendly, but the whole place needs some refurbishment. Take care - dont leave the balcony open, the famous monkeys can enter in the room otherwise.

Stayed for 3 nights 7 - 10 May 2013, room 131. The hotel is beautiful and exudes a certain 1930's charm and elegance. The exterior of the hotel is, as many have put on here, in need of a re-paint but that does not really detract from the overall experience. Our room was great, spacious, big bathroom, balcony, sea view... 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
