Positive Reviews

Ideal location means it’s close to everything

This hotel really is in the heart of Gibraltar The cable car to the top of the rock, the shops and the restaurants are all very close You will spend very little time in the hotel because it was so easy to get around the area.

Clean and tidy

The place is a bit dated, but the staff more than make up for this by keeping it spotlessly clean Many guests were very impressed by housekeeping, and the pool area and breakfast room are also in good condition.

Knowledgeable staff a real help

The staff were extremely helpful in recommending restaurants and letting guests know which ones had specials on at particular times This is great info that you would never find out by yourself They are also very friendly and make your stay a pleasant one.

Negative Reviews

Old world style not up to modern standards

The hotel is seriously dated and really needs an overall revamp It’s clean and convenient, but you really do feel like you’ve woken up in the seventies in those old fashioned rooms.

Unappetizing breakfast

Continental breakfasts are usually quite light and a good healthy way to start the day, but the breakfast at this hotel is anything but good Nothing seems fresh, and there is very little choice of fruit Very disappointing.

Noisy air-con keeps you awake

It’s either stay cool and awake or feel hot and sleep The free standing air-conditioning unit works well enough but is so loud that you can’t sleep with it on This is a serious flaw in the rooms, why would you want air-con that you cannot use?.
