Best Hotels in Gibraltar

Gibraltar Introduction

A rocky outcrop dominated by its towering limestone Rock, Gibraltar offers a slice of Blighty in the Spanish sun. The Rock's western face looms over Main Street – a duty-free haven where best buys include booze and tobacco. Beyond Referendum Gate, a cable car soars to the "Top of the Rock" for uninterrupted views of the Costa del Sol, though a stop along the way allows curious riders to get a closer look at the Rock's wilder inhabitants – a 300-strong troupe of mischievous Barbary apes.

Hotels in Gibraltar

From 5-star luxury on one of the world's first super-yacht hotels to no-frills guesthouses with breakfast on the house, accommodation options in Gibraltar are delightfully varied. If specific facilities are on your wish list you'll be jumping for joy to find that some Gibraltar hotels come complete with a sparkling pool, sweeping sea views or both. For those who can't face the day without a little pampering, spa hotels will have you looking your best on your travels, while apartment-style digs with plenty of space for younger visitors often find favour with families.

Where to stay

Gibraltar's diminutive 3 square miles means that no matter where you choose to call home entertainment and visitor hotspots are never going to be beyond reach – though if staying in the heart of the action is a priority then a town centre hotel, particularly one that's close to Main Street, is always going to be a good bet. The same goes for Ocean Village – a floating neighbourhood often likened to a mini-Marbella. Hotels on the Eastside are a little harder to come by but reward travellers with views of the flower-covered Great Gibraltar Sand Dune and easy access to Catalan Bay Beach.

Things to see

When it comes to keeping visitors happy, Gibraltar is not afraid to whip out the big guns – literally. Gibraltar's famed 100-Ton Gun, found at the Napier of Magdala Battery by Rosia Bay and now purely used for ceremonial purposes, tells a fine tale of a far more uncertain time in the territory's past. In later years, Gibraltar's strategic importance during WWII saw a network of underground tunnels built – akin to an underground city – in which travellers can get a look at the Stay Behind Cave, an observation post so well-hidden that it was only rediscovered in the late 1990s. Of course, a stay in a Gibraltar hotel is not all about military heritage. Lush green spaces offer the perfect spot to kick back with a picnic hamper and a holiday read. La Alameda Gardens – Gibraltar's Botanic Gardens, within which may be found the Alameda Wildlife Park – is brimming with exotic plants such as Atlantic Dragon Trees, South African daisies and Australian Silk Oak.

How to get to Gibraltar

With several major UK airports offering direct services to Gibraltar, catching a flight should pose no problem. Whether travelling from London or Scotland you can expect to be in the air for around 3 hours, give or take 30 minutes. More of a sailor? Many Mediterranean cruises include a stop in Gibraltar, though limited onshore time may see your sightseeing reach a frenzied pace. If you're already in Spain but hope to include travel in Gibraltar in your plans, you can cross into the territory at La Linea.
