Four star hotel built in the colonial style which has been visited by many famous people. More recently a small colony of Barbary apes have been seen on some of the lower balconies, which guests are warned not to feed. On Gibraltar's Nature Reserve a fine of £500 can be imposed if found giving the apes food. Having previously visited this hotel a few years ago, I was a little disappointed to find the décor looked a little jaded. A little paint had peeled away on the walls, and the grouting in the bathroom was looking tired. However, the welcome sherry, 7 foot wide bed, bath robes, ground coffee and fridge are all still provided in the rooms. In addition, complimentary lollipops and ducks in the bathrooms are now in place. Our bathroom was very spacious and the bath/shower was quite long. The food here is excellent, and the selection provided for the breakfast buffet was plentiful. Being in an elevated position on the side of a hill, all rooms in the hotel and the restaurant have a spectacular view across the Bay of Gibraltar both during day and night time. The Botanical Gardens (one of Gibraltar's green lungs) is just across the road from The Rock, which makes a walk down to the main town more interesting, and the walk back less tiring.
