I recently stayed for 2 nights in the Bristol Hotel. You cant beat the location as it is right off the main street with shops , bar and restaurants on your doorstep. and within walking distance of the cablecar to go to the top of the rock. The hotel is , as you would imagine , quite old fashioned ,...

last stayed here with my parents in 1970. Basically it hasn't changed a bit. Decor carpets etc still stuck in a time warp. Vending machines for refreshments. Breakfast £6 continental. Nearby cafes less than this for full English and drink? Staff friendly. Good and central. If you can't get in anywhere else this will do for a bight or 2,...

Gibraltar is a beautiful place but is being ruined by all of the building work going on, too much into such a small area. The hotel is one of the lower end of the price range so you pay for what you get, although we did have to ask to change our room three times, first room the bed wasn't...

If you know GIbraltar, and put the Sunborn as a 5 and the Cannon as a 1, then the Bristol is "a good 3" - maybe even a 3.5. The location, being (at most) 30 seconds walk from Main Street is just about unbeatable. Everything is in walking or bus-ing distance. Reception is open 24 hours, and we found the...

Good location, just off Main Street which is what we wanted but the HOTEL, the staff were friendly no problem with them but like everyone is saying it is very tired and could do with a major overhaul, we did not like wood panel in corridor , made it dark and I was thinking about fire risk and also the...

On arrival we were advised that the room we had booked with a exterior view was not available and that I would need to pick this up with the Travel Agent it was nothing to do with the hotel. No offer of moving if one became available or even an apology. The staff were more interested i their own conversations...

This hotel was centrally located and of medium size and it cost us £10 from the very modern airport by taxi for a couple with two cases, a distance of less than a mile. Taxis are expensive in Gibraltar. On the plus side every member of staff we interacted with was pleasant, wonderfully helpful and efficient and helped to make...

We have currently just finished staying at the Bristol Hotel and were more than happy whilst staying here. Yes, the hotel is very outdated so don't expect anything modern but the location is fantastic. Turn left out of the hotel and you are in the town, you couldn't wish to be any closer. Rooms are very spacious, bathrooms are just...

The Bristol hotel is centrally located, just a very short walk to restaurants and shops. I stayed here with my family and we had two rooms, both of which were clean and spacious with comfortable beds, ensuite bathrooms had showers with plenty of hot water. There was free WiFi throughout the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Some reviews say...

Stayed here with a group of friends for 3 nights and first impressions were ok, on arrival to the room first impressions were that the size of the room was ok as we were given a family room, towels and room cleaned daily though the water pressure was not up to much so showering was not much of a pleasure...
