We booked this hotel 5 months before our stay because it was convenient for our onward journey of over 1000kms over a weekend. We had already driven over 700kms on the day we arrived at this IBIS in the evening. We had chosen this hotel because it had a restaurant, and we knew we would not want to drive after our arrival. When we booked, there was no online indication that the restaurant would be closed at weekends, so I was extremely disappointed and angry to find that this was the case. We asked the receptionist where we would find a restaurant, and were directed to a village about 4kms away, where there was only a Vietnamese restaurant that was open. Not exactly what we were led to believe. On our way back to the hotel we found a MacDonalds, which would not have been our choice, but seemed the only alternative.
If you look at the very small print on IBIS printed brochures at the hotel, you will find advice that different hotel restaurants open at various times, and enquire at the hotel.
OK, maybe I should have disregarded the menu shown when we booked, and maybe I should have called the hotel to confirm that the restaurant would be open for its delicious range of local specialties.
We will not be using IBIS again, as this is our third unsatisfactory encounter. In future we will use another brand, as boxed breakfast at one IBIS, poor décor at another, and now a miserable experience in the middle of a very long journey has finally convinced us to avoid IBIS in future.
