Reviewed yesterday NEW

We wanted a little 2 night break, and this hotel had everything for that. Perfect location on the seafront, so if you want to walk out on the promenade for a bit of bar hopping or restaurant searching, perfect! Room was large and comfortable, bathroom great, 2 sinks and all amenities. Room service very efficient. Car was tucked safely away...

Chose this hotel for parents special anniversary celebrations after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. Check in was fraught with issues despite me emailing in advance asking for good rooms for parents and an accompanying friend. Had paid to upgrade to a Sea view. Parents had disappointing side view and after being shown a couple of other rooms begrudgingly ended up accepting...

On day 6 of a 14 day vacation. Staff have been very helpful with confirming excursions and even offered to get stamps and mail postcards. Now that the weather has improved, we look forward to many walks on the promenade and visits to Old Town, both of which are at the hotel's doorstep. Visited Gibraltar yesterday and are looking forward...

Just got back from 4 nights at the hotel. Rooms were clean and spacious. Reception staff were brilliant but other staff in the restaurant were surly and dismissive. Breakfast buffet was good, however we ate in the restaurant in the evening once and it was very disappointing. Not much choice and the food was tasteless. Really disappointing that the Spa...

One of the friendliest and most efficient hotels I have stayed in. Based on the good reviews I chose this hotel for an eight day stay travelling without my husband, so I was naturally a bit apprehensive about everything.
