The hotel is looking tired and needs to be refurbished. The hotel no longer has a restaurant although it still mentioned one on the web site, very poor! All that was available were microwave meals from the reception and these were expensive too.
Bar poor with stale pression beer and certainly not the brand quality ordered, restaurant packaged food only - no chef able to offer vegetarian option, loo seat would not stay up / was broken, booked for two nights stayed only one.
We stayed at 9 hotels recently during a holiday in France, 3 Ibis and 6 from the Logis range. The Ibis at Autun was the worst by far. The other Ibis hotels at Poitiers and Montauban were more like the old, iconic Ibis hotels of 20 years ago before a frenzy of mergers of cheaper chains under the Ibis banner and much pointless marketing have come close to ruining the brand. Nowadays, I find the Logis chain (if the hotel is carefully chosen) while more expensive, offers much better value for money. Anyway, as far as the Autun Ibis is concerned, the problem is the restaurant. This was our experience: 1. The 2 or 3 Plat menus described in the room literature were not available in this restaurant although they had been in Poitiers and Montauban. Instead there was a very limited a la carte. 2. The food was overcooked. 3. There was no 50Cl. pichet of wine option. Instead we had to order a 14 Euro bottle that was screw top and dumped on the table without being opened for us. Altogether we paid almost 45 Euros for 2 poorly cooked main courses (a trout and an omelette), a rather skimpy Café Gourmand and the wine. Very poor value. The night before we paid around 60 Euros in a Logis hotel in Tournon for a 3 course menu of high quality including a 50Cl pichet of acceptable wine which cost 5 Euros. The next morning's breakfast was no better. A crowd of French geriatrics stripped the Breakfast Buffet like hungry crows and the staff was very slow to replenish it. It may be that the Ibis restaurant is suffering from a lack of competition being in an isolated location about a mile out of town. If you must stay at this hotel, notice that there is a McDonalds hidden a few hundred yards away. I wish we had eaten there. On the good side, the rooms are spotless and the staff are friendly although none of them had a word of English. And the lavatory seat in the bathroom had been poorly installed and would not stay up. Every male knows how this generates feelings of unease and fear.
As you would expect from an Ibis in France, this was a a very clean & comfortable hotel. Set in a quiet location away from the centre of town but only a few minutes drive to facilities. The room was a little small but we had a great night's sleep in a very comfortable bed!
Hotel in a very convenient pretty location just off the main road, with a lovely lake nearby to walk round. Bathroom could have been cleaner but at least the parking was free. The duty manager was obnoxious about my efforts to speak French, but the other staff were fine.
We stayed while visiting family in the area. We liked the location and found it easily. We had no problems and the hotel was fine.as an older couple, we were surprised there was no elevator and we were on the 2nd floor but it was easy to manage.
