The bedrooms are spacious and well equipped, and many boast stunning coastal views that stretch across the Mediterranean to Morocco.

About the area
Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory attached to Spain. A narrow finger of land poking into the sea, it sits on the eastern side of the wide and deep Bay of Gibraltar. Directly to the south is the Strait of Gibraltar, which separates the Iberian Peninsula from Morocco; Europe from Africa.
Gibraltar only covers 2.6 square miles (6.8 sq km), but its comparatively large population of over 30,000 makes it the 5th most populated territory on earth. The major landmark is the Rock of Gibraltar, which dwarfs the buildings of the nearby towns. It is nearly 1,400 feet high (426 metres) and on the top is a nature reserve which is home to a large colony of Barbary macaques. Tourism mainly revolves around these apes (or are they monkeys?) and a large network of tunnels that were built by the British army.
The Rock is riddled with a labyrinth that was constructed for defence purposes between the late 18th century and the late 1960s. To get to the top of the Rock, you can take a cable car which offers amazing views of the area, and runs every ten minutes.
