I had read many great reviews of the restaurant and the food so I reserved a table for dinner, I was offered a table on the terrace (an area of the hotel calling out for immediate refurbishment), the metal chair was uncomfortable, only a seat cushion (and indeed I was lucky to have that as some chairs had no cushions...

Stayed for 3 nights last week, very warm welcome, staff are wonderful! Breakfast was very nice ans service could not be faulted in any way. Walk back from town is a bit of a chore but can catch a bus at 2.30 euro for a day ticket. Don't miss the cable car to see the macaques, beautiful experience.

On our visit with a friend who is a vegan, there was some urgency in getting a meal as my wife is diabetic and needed to eat. We googled for a vegan restaurant and the Rock Hotel came up as a suggestion. We eat out on the terrace overlooking the harbour. The food and service was exceptional.

We had a meal here on our wedding night. The food was fine but was a litlle under what one would expect in quality from a lovely hotel. The impression is of a restaurant wanting to offer silver star service but not sure how to. e.g. The Iberian cheese platter consisted of French and Spanish cheese with an offering of... More

We stayed in The Rock for 3 days before during and after we got married. The building is fantastic in its Art Deco style and was the most exclusive place to be in Gibraltar. The hotel retains its quirky character and the public rooms are seductively stunning. The fickle service also stayed in our memory and thankfully the mouldy ham... More
