My daughter and I stayed here for a week.
Yes the only way to describe it is gods waiting room. The hotel itself is quite charming and clean and you can see that it has been spectacular in its time. However the food left a lot to be desired, although to be fair here was always something you could find that was ok even if it was only the very salty soups and salads. We found ourselves filling up on bread as the stews and meats all seemed to be of poor quality. What I would expect from a 2 or 3 star hotel. most of the clientele were retired (hence the title). The indoor pool was closed and I noted that the hotel replied to a review from Patricia who complained of the closed pool a week after we were there and told he that it was for maintenance which I don't believe as it was closed all week between the 27th Sept to 4th August, but it did open for a Children's party one afternoon !!! We also booked through secret escapes? I would advise anyone looking to go here to look at the area as there is nowhere else to go in the evening. I learnt my lesson and will investigate thoroughly before booking next time. Staff were lovely and helpful. Gibraltar was a great day out and only a couple of euros on the bus.
