"Unique and sparkly hotel close to everything you m"
We had a fantastic time at the Sunborn. As we fancied a bit of luxury, and wanted to be located in Gibraltar proper (not La Linea) this did narrow our range of options somewhat, but no matter as we had such a lovely stay.
Its nice to stay on a converted yacht anyway - novelty value - but the whole place was fitted to beautiful standards and as expected from a 5* hotel the staff were friendly, welcoming and very helpful.
The main benefit of the hotel is its location - a short walk to the town centre of Gibraltar and all the shops/restaurants/touristy things, but still also easy walking distance to the border (for a day trip to Spain) and the airport itself.
The hotel was located in a nice area so there's lots to see, eat and do in the immediate vicinity without it being too much on weekend nights. Based on previous reviews we asked, and were given, an airport side room which had a lovely balcony and was great fun for a nerd like me to watch the planes land and take off from the tiny runway. But you couldn't hear a thing once the doors were shut.
The room had everything you might need - dressing gowns, slippers, kettle, umbrella etc, and housekeeping noticed when we were in an asked if we needed anything (my husband's request for more tea/milk was met immediately). Rooms were impeccably clean and well maintained, and the heating/lighting etc is easy to work from a panel.
The only 'warning' is the prices in the hotel itself - but these are all optional expenditures.
