Situated in a spot which affords views of the Rock of Gibraltar, Miramar Hotel offers basic budget accommodation within easy reach of both Gibraltar and the beaches.
The rooms are fairly basic, but comfortably furnished. Each features en-suite bathroom, hairdryer, flat screen TV and work desk. Some of them have dramatic views of the nearby Rock of Gibraltar.
Reception is open 24 hours and can assist with local information, tours, basic business services and safe keeping of valuables.
There are no dining facilities on-site, but reception staff will be more than happy to offer you their personal local dining recommendations.
Miramar is a great budget option when you actually want to visit Gibraltar, but are prepared to stay outside the territory. Gibraltar’s centre is about 1.8 miles from Miramar, and there are regular busses running that can take you there.

It seems that most guests were actually looking to visit Gibraltar, but chose this option just over the border due to Gibraltar's reputation of being a bit expensive. While they had a number of issues with the hotel, most guests really did feel that they received excellent value.
Good restaurants nearby
While guests did not much care for the immediate area in general, they did say that there were a couple of great dining options, so they were not forced to travel far to eat well.
Great views from some rooms
While this only applied to the front facing rooms on the upper floors, guests staying in these rooms mentioned that they afforded them a fantastic view of the Rock of Gibraltar. More than just the view, it seemed to give them a sense of history and of place.
Very tired looking
It seems that guests didn't receive their low room rate without having to pay in other ways. The most common negative comment was that the decor throughout the hotel was not only extremely dated, but also very “tired”, with guest saying things just looked a little tatty.
No in-room Wi-Fi
While guests did seem to concede that this could not be taken for granted in a budget property, they were nevertheless disappointed to find that there was no in-room Wi-Fi. It was available in the reception area, but it seems they would have been prepared to pay just a little more for their room if it had Wi-Fi.
No air conditioning
A couple of guests claimed that there seemed to be neither heating nor cooling - certainly not in their room, and possibly not in the entire hotel. It left them either too hot, or too cold, depending on the time of year.
