All aboard the five-star Sunborn Hotel in Gibraltar

ALL ABOARD: Sunborn Hotel, Gibraltar

THE five-star Sunborn Hotel arrived in Gibraltar a year ago to a fair degree of cynicism.

A purpose-built yacht hotel, there were plenty sceptical that it would not take off, with visitors and tourists preferring to lay down their heads at the more historic Rock Hotel, or La Caleta.

However, it has slowly come into its own and become a useful hub for tourists and businesses alike, that find the location superb.

There is a definite sense of glamour arriving into the clean retro lobby with its huge glass disco ball/planet hanging above and jazzy marble floors.

Being five-star you are quickly helped by a porter and reception staff are polite and efficient.

Best of all though are the rooms, which make clever use of light, as well as the stunning maritime location overlooking lines of yachts and towards shimmering views of the Serrania de Ronda.

Technology is paramount with everything focussing around a touch screen and the curtains opening by touch. Mood lighting is good and the sheet quality excellent.

On board you will also find a casino, gym and, of course, beauty parlours plus various places to eat, drink and generally be merry.

All in all it was great to be aboard!
