“not for everyone”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

The cannon hotel is a very basic hotel but it works and is not like the overpriced others, room service is on request, and i found the staff are very helpful and nice. the rooms are not air conditioned and a little bit smelly, after a hot summer day this is not so nice, if you open the window the bugs come in to feast. this is not a location for honeymooners or romantic nights on the rock. for me I was here on business and just needed a place to rest and wash, and the location for me was perfect. the staff are not there 24hrs and go home at 2300hrs so don't forget your key.

Room Tip: rooms on the lower floors should be cooler.

Gibraltar is still a step back in time (despite its shiny new seafront bars & casino) & this great little hotel is a part of that experience. It's very quirky & somewhat old fashioned but it has a bar, a dining room & a pleasant courtyard. It's centrally located, the breakfast gets you going in the morning, the communal showers are clean & the people you meet here will put a smile on your face.

Let's be clear, I tend to travel alone & if I was taking a lovely lady I'd go for the Bristol or the Continental (both OK) if she was more interested in the hotel room than the adventure. But I have stayed here twice & I will now always stay here on my annual visit to this lovely rock. If The Cannon ever shuts I will be a broken man (& have to pay a heck of a lot more to stay in Gib), so Vive Le Cannon!

Room Tip: Take earplugs for a full night's sleep.

Sunborn costs £240 a night joke , canon hotel is. £48 but is in desperate need of decor , wouldn't take a lot , at the moment I would class it as a dive , in Gib you can get away with this I wouldn't eat in here looks unhygienic to me . It would be shut down in UK guaranteed .

I don't understand these negative reviews.My experience was quite the opposite.
We had a really nice room with private bathroom,beautiful sheets & towels.
Perfectly cooked English breakfast.Is on a very picturesque street.Hotels in Gibraltar are very expensive.Cannon hotel was a steal!

Room Tip: rooms with private bathrooms are better

Stated in this dirty economy wheelie bin of a hotel for 4 miserable sleepless nights and 5 miserable uncooked sausage breakfasts.
world war 2 rationing of orange juice and im hoping it was orange juice that stained my sheets yellow, also loved the cob web and damp civered walls.

Stayed for two nights at the Cannon over Easter weekend. It was a bargain. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and spacious (we chose the option with private bath,) location was central to all the attractions, breakfast was good. It was exactly what we expected, a bargain spot in the right location.
