“well priced hotel in downtown Gibraltar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

I stayed here for two nights to relax in a small piece of UK in Spain. I believe it is well priced 55 pounds for 3 persons and 70 pounds for 3 persons with private bath room, compared to other hotels in Gibraltar, but they don't have airco and one night we had a shared bathroom. The hotel serves English breakfast and is in the middle of the main shopping street. Advice: take a bus to the main square and then walk in less than 10 mins to the hotel.

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
