Everything from booking the apartment to checking in and out was a breeze and Steffan was very helpful. It's a lovely apartment has everything you need, and the heaters were very handy after getting drenched during our stay in Gib! The apartment is very nicely decorated and has that home from home feel. It's in the perfect location for everything, bars and restaurants, there's a shop about a 3 minute walk, it's about a 10 minute walk from the airport. Main street is about a 5 minute walk. Apartment has a balcony so you can watch the planes coming in and taking off, it's not noisy and not many flights so don't be put off by this. We didn't use the swimming pool as not the weather for it but I have stayed in this block before and it's never busy and nice and quiet to relax in. A tip for the buses, walk towards main street and you can get an all day hopper for £2.50, takes you everywhere. Thank you Steffan again for being so helpful and making everything so easy. I would definitely be using this apartment again and recommending to family and friends.
We stayed at Niche Retreat for 2 nights and we wished we’d stayed for longer! There were 3 of us travelling, myself, my partner and a friend and having been a tad surprised at how expensive hotels are in Gibraltar, I researched the apartment option and found Niche Retreat on TripAdvisor. A good move.
The apartment is ideal for couples but also for 3 people as the ‘day bed’ (for the 3rd person) in the lounge is tucked away in a private corner and is apparently very comfy. The apartment is spacious, clean and well equipped. The balcony is a sun trap with great views over the marina and the runway to Spain beyond. The easterly wind was very strong whilst we were there (late April) but the balcony was really sheltered and we had a great bbq one night.
Easy walking to the apartment from the airport and into Casemates Square, Main Street and also Morrisons for supplies. We walked up to the top of the Rock one afternoon, foolishly thought it would take a couple of hours, 4 and half hours later we were still descending with tired legs but well worth it. The apartment certainly felt like home from home after that trek and we will definitely be visiting again.
What a fantastic apartment and brilliant stay! The apartment was quiet and perfect for our needs! Everything was spotless. Perfect walking distance from everything! We honestly couldn’t have asked for anything more!
We stayed here in September 2017 and would absolutely not hesitate to stay again. The apartment was wonderfully decorated and lovely and clean. Perhaps the most impressive thing is view over the marina and Seaborn yacht. The runway is to the right but there are not many planes per day so not too much noise, however fantastic if you like aviation or just think it's cool to watch aircraft land and take off. The location is good too, right by the marina and it's bars and restaurants, but close to Casemates square too and about a 20 minute walk to the lift to the top of the rock.
The apartment also has use of the complex pool, which was absolutely freezing (if the apartment block could sort the temperature out that would be fab), but nice to be able to lay out in the sun.
Communication was excellent and the price was really very good compared to other, perhaps less attractive, apartments in Gib. We have recommended this place to other people we know planning a trip.
Just back to a rainy cold UK after a lovely sunny week in Gib. The apartment is absolutely lovely... the photos don't do it justice. It's in a great location in the Marina and within a 15 minute walk to Morrison's - handy for self catering. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and walking to town and to the Rock is very easy too. The apartment is really well equipped and the little balcony has the sun in the afternoon to enjoy a cold beer on and watch the planes landing (they don't cause any noise problems at all). We loved it ... and as I watch the forecast and see the snow warnings back home ... I wish I was still there!
Superb location, superb apartment! Cannot recommend this place highly enough - and it's a snip when you consider the price of the local hotels.
Great comms with Steffan too. Very quick response to emails which is always welcome!
Would 100% stay here again.
Thanks Steffan and Jo!
Even before we arrived, we were in contact with Jo, who kept us updated with local info and was very quick in answering our queries. The apartment itself was lovely. You can see that a lot of thought went into decorating it. It contains lots of little touches so that you feel like you are in a home rather that a bland hotel room/apartment. We were fully stocked up on arrival with tea / coffee / milk and toiletries. There was also a very informative welcome pack. The location itself is perfect. There are views overlooking the marina and runway (perfect for aviation fans!). The marina is on the doorstep, and has lots of bars and restaurants. The main square and shopping area are only a 5 min walk away too. All in all a perfect place to stay! Thanks Jo and Steffan
