The Rock Hotel Gibraltar

Europe Road, Gibraltar


The Rock Hotel is an institution in Gibraltar and indeed the Mediterranean. Built in 1932 by the Marquis of Bute, the hotel to this day still offers standards of service and guest care from that bygone, more genteel era.

Decorated in the colonial style the Rock offers 104 bedrooms which include a number of suites, junior suites and penthouses. The hotel enjoys a unique aspect in Gibraltar with all rooms having magnificent views across the Bay of Gibraltar, the Spanish mainland and the Rif Mountains of Morocco. With an ambience that will please the leisure and corporate guest alike, the Rock Hotel truly is "an oasis in a busy world"

The Rock Hotel Gibraltar - Accommodation

There is no such thing as a basic room at the Rock. All of our guest rooms enjoy the luxury of a sea view, mini-bars, luxurious bathrobes, welcome decanters of scotch and sherry, trouser presses, fully remote controlled air-conditioning and heating, satellite television and radio as well as facilities to make a fresh ground coffee when you want one. You'll even find lollipops by the bedside and ducks in your bathroom! All but a few of our rooms have balconies and our suites and penthouses have CD players for the musically inclined.

The Rock Hotel Gibraltar - Characteristics and Facilities

We take our food (and our wine for that matter) very seriously at the Rock as we do your enjoyment of it! Our culinary style has unashamedly absorbed influences from both Iberia and north Africa as well as an obvious leaning to all that is good about modern British cuisine.

Naturally we also take full advantage of our Mediterranean location and the abundance of seafood available on our doorstep.

In fact, our main restaurant enjoys panoramic views across Gibraltar Bay and the Spanish mainland and Morocco's Riff mountains. We feature a daily changing "house menu" as well as a full seasonally changing à la Carte selection that we hope will delight you as you sip your complimentary glass of Manzanilla with our famous herb infused olives.

There is also an extensive range of conference, banqueting and private dining menus and of course our chef would be happy to design ad hoc celebratory or corporate menus to suit any budget.

Our wine list is varied and extensive whilst representing excellent value. We make no apologies for majoring on some of the fabulous wines that that our Spanish neighbours are producing at the moment in a remarkable range of weights, styles and colours.

The Barbary Bar, which opens out on to the Wisteria Terrace, has been refurbished in a style that incorporates a blend of colonial, Iberian and Moorish influences which literally reflect its location within the hotel.

Along with a fully stocked bar there is also a food menu from which guests can enjoy culinary delights that also reflect our geography and history from sandwiches and steak pies to tapas and tagines! The service is efficient and courteous from members of our team who have been with us for much of their working lives. Relax in wicker furniture, listen to the hum of the ceiling fans, sip your favourite tipple and think of Noel Coward.

The Wisteria Terrace itself, which blossoms twice a year, really is the place to be on a summer's evening. The views are stunning and in particular from this end of the hotel the view to Africa on clear days is magical, feeling that one could almost "touch" Morocco.

Drinks, snacks and light meals are served here and tapas are a speciality. There is a delightful selection of interesting wines by the glass and our bar staff will gladly mix cocktails from our list or to your own specification if you prefer.
The Wisteria Terrace is an exceptionally wonderful place to hold small wedding receptions.

Our pool, which is open-air and of the seawater variety, sits in its own secluded garden away from the hustle and bustle.
This area enjoys magnificent sunshine for the majority of the day and is a must for those seeking that mediterranean tan.

As well as the poolside there is a lawned area for those looking for that extra peace and quiet. There is a fully stocked bar and food is served throughout the day from an interesting and varied menu. There are barbecues and events throughout the summer months and the area is available for private functions in consultation with our banqueting department.
