Frequently Asked Questions


We are more than happy to do so. If you’re not quite ready to set your plans in stone, we can hold a provisional booking for two weeks prior to you paying the deposit.

We kindly ask you to confirm your booking by way of paying the deposit. Please contact our dedicated events team on +350 200 73000/events@rockhotel.gi to do so. We will send you written confirmation by email and of course will be on hand to support you as plans for your special day come together.

Deposit amounts are as follows; The Khaima: £1,000 || The Victory Suite with adjoining Sunset Terrace: £1,000 ||The Ceremony Room: £350 However, if you have over 40 guests attending your wedding, we are pleased to waive this fee entirely. These prices are valid for 2021 and are subject to change beyond this point.

The deposit is not refundable, but in light of current events we have made it possible for your wedding to be postponed up to one year without you losing any money.

Please contact our reservations team at reservations@rockhotel.gi, stating your requirements. They will be happy to offer you the best available rates.

At least one month before your wedding day, we need to be made aware of the number of guaranteed guests attending your wedding as well as their food choices and dietary requirements. Payment must also be made by that time. This ensures we have everything in place and can focus on all the final touches or any last minute changes.



We have free parking at the hotel that is subject to availability.

We have three beautiful and private venues available for you to choose from depending on what it is you’re looking for; The Khaima, The Ceremony Room, The Victory Suite and the adjoining Sunset Terrace. The Khaima, our authentic, stunning and spacious Moroccan marquee is located next to the pool in a shaded and quiet area of the hotel, and provides the perfect venue to create that exclusive and uniquely magical ambience. Emanating a timeless elegance, The Victory Suite and the adjoining Sunset Terrace boast unparalleled views of Gibraltar’s magnificent seascape and the Rif Mountains of Morocco in the distance, providing a spectacular experience for you and your guests. For a more intimate Wedding, The Ceremony Room is a romantic and memorable spot offering the same jaw dropping views across the bay of Gibraltar.

During the summer months, from April 1st to October 31st, the pool decking can be hired for private use from 20:30. During daytime the pool area is open to all hotel residents and those with a pool membership. During Winter months the pool is not open so the pool decking is not subject to these time restrictions.

We are somewhat flexible and do our utmost to accommodate your needs. Generally, capacities are as follows;
- Victory Suite / Sunset Terrace
Min. 20 with 160 people seated in the Victory Suite.
Min. 20 people with max. 70 people seated on the Terrace.
