Having stayed at The Rock Hotel in October 2012, and loved every minute of it, we decided to return in 2013 to try our first Christmas away from home.
The Hotel retains its charm even though its beauty is somewhat compromised by advancing years. We were lucky enough to view the ‘Show’ room which gave us a glimpse of what The Rock will be like after the extensive renovations. The new décor retains the ‘colonial’ feeling which is the heartbeat of the hotel and if the whole building is completed to this standard it will be breathtaking.
The most important part of our stay, even more important than the excellent dinners and substantial breakfasts on offer, was the friendliness of the ever helpful Staff. In particular Ahmoud in the bar and Aneta in the restaurant - please accept my apologies if the names are spelt incorrectly.
The chance to meet the other guests at an informal pre-dinner reception on Christmas Eve was a lovely way to start the evening. The Dining room was beautifully set and presented at all times. Thank you for a wonderful Christmas.
