Gibraltar Tripadvisor reviews
We’ve all heard of Tripadvisor, the ups, the downs, the pitfalls, the fake reviews. But what do reviewers say about places, hotels, tours and restaurants in Gibraltar?
The answer, on the whole, very good things.
But are they true?
Harder to answer. We’ve been scrutinising and reviewing the reviews to see if they really are fair and true and we’ll be publishing our thoughts soon on whether these rankings and comments truly reflect what we know about the best places to see and visit in Gibraltar.
In the meantime take our advice and take all Tripadvisor reviews with a big pinch of salt.
Watch this space for our coming opinions of whether we think Tripadvisor has been fair to a business in Gib or if the reviews are just plane misleading …..
Gibraltar hotels Tripadvisor reviews
We took a sneak look at what visitors say about the hotels in Gibraltar on the Tripadvisor website. Fascinating reading with all the usual criticism and praise, but we did our own survey to try and work out the rank listings.
Below, we based our ranking on Tripadvisors own statistics and got some very interesting results. We took the total number of reviews, less the total of terrible, poor and average, and then divided that again by the total number of reviews, giving us a percentage ranking;
(Gibraltar Tourism experience and descriptions in pink)
Number one with 70 reviews Con Dios 94% customer satisfaction (a cute little family run B&B on the sea)
Number two with 21 reviews Sunborn 76% customer satisfaction (5 star on the sea, only just opened, watch out for the see through loo)
Number three with 729 reviews The Eliott 69% customer satisfaction (Stylish, chique and central)
Number four with 397 reviews The Caleta 68% customer satisfaction (Romantic Mediterranean views and Grace Kelly feel)
Number five with 913 reviews The Rock Hotel 66% customer satisfaction (Fabulous Agatha Christie era, English tea, time travel)
Number six with 6 reviews Governors Inn 50% customer satisfaction (cosy and cute)
Number seven with 316 reviews The Bristol Hotel 34% customer satisfaction (Victorian feel and look)
Number eight with 92 reviews The Cannon 31% customer satisfaction (Great pub B&B, simple and central)
Number nine with 127 reviews The Queens Hotel 30% customer satisfaction (handy for the cable car)
So it seems that Gibraltars two boatels have come out on top, with Con Dios ranks ahead. Also a completely different order to the one on Tripadvisor.
Comment of the week has got to the be the remarks about the glass walls on the Sunborn, including the loo if you please, as one reviewer below explains
Will agree with the reviewer above who mentioned the glass shower and toilet doors. It is ok if you are with someone you know well and feeling comfortable with. Not sure about a romantic stay with someone you only started getting to know. I was in the toilet room when a handyman came in to fix a light in the room and I froze on the seat to avoid being noticed by him.
