The Rock Review

This hotel overlooking the straits first opened in 1932, and although furnishings in the rooms and restaurants are elegant and colorful, they still preserve something of the English colonial style, with bamboo, ceiling fans, and a terrace bar covered with wisteria. There are various whimsical touches, like plastic ducks in the bath and toy-monkey key rings, plus more useful amenities, like complimentary tea, coffee, and cookies. Refurbishment of the entire hotel (rooms and public areas) plus construction of a fitness area took place in 2014.
