We were forced to stay at the Bristol after our plane was grounded in Gibraltar. The staff were friendly and helpful yes, no argument there. The place is so dated and in need of a major refurb. The room was clean and the bathroom also clean but what happened to tea and coffee making facilities, bottled water and bath sheets!!!...

This hotel is very and I mean very centrally located on Cathedral Square just off Main St which is the main pedestriansed drag in town. The building is a lovely Georgian looking bulding and has a very pleasant exterior, the interior is very dated though. All the public areas and corridors are cladded with wood panelling making them very dark,...

Really surprised with the Bristol, after reading some reviews we were a bit concerned. Okay, it is a bit dated, but a superb location, excellent staff and comfortable rooms, continental breakfast proved very adequate, will definitely use again.

We stayed at the Bristol for 2 weeks. It was retro heaven. Yes it is dated, but it is very clean, has good hot showers and comfy beds. The staff are friendly and although breakfast is Basic it's good.

As they say you get what you pay for, room 112 overlooked the Gib Museum gardens and out toward Algeciras Bay. Comfortable if a little tired accommodation but lots of character as you would expect for an 100 year old hotel. We will back again this time next year!

The marble glints in the sunlight on arrival though deeper reality reveals the better days are past for some of the current facilities. However, for staying on the rock this is ideal. It's a short walk to the cable car boarding hut, from there you can visit the famous minkeys as Inspector Cloussou once said. The staff will greet &...

The Bristol is a well established hotel very well situated for the Gibraltar Town Centre and trips to the Rock etc. Although the fabric of the hotel appears a little "tired" the quality and friendliness of service was excellent. There is no established tea/coffee making facilities in rooms but reception was happy to supply a kettle and crockery and invited...

If I had written this review on my arrival it would have been a "poor" or even "terrible" but a friend and I stayed the full three days (we were talking about bailing out but they take the money up front on registering) and, as I say above, it grows on you. Let's get the worst out of the way...

Set in the middle of Gibraltar, right on Main Street, location is the biggest selling point for this hotel as it is very dated!! Saying this, it's reasonably priced and clean. So if you don't plan of spending your visit indoors I wouldn't let the decor put you off!
