Having booked a visit to Museo y Circuito Fernando Alonso some 10 km outside Oviedo we considered several hotel and finally decided on Hotel Ibis Oviedo. Using Ibis hotels on a regular basis worldwide and having booked at our regular Ibis in Madrid for the previous night our expectations were high. Good secure car parking, very happy, knowledgeable and attentive reception staff. Our rooms was the usual Ibis high standard. Its now time to eat, we were informed that there is only a bar snack service and the nearest restaurant was a ten minute walk away. This is great for the energetic, however we are pensioner in our mid-seventies with hip and back problems.
We normally breakfast and then travel during the day and dine well in the evenings - not so this day.
Having to use the bar snack menu we were not happy. So the Ibis breakfast is always very good and maintains us for a days travel, again no so. No milk for the cornflakes - it took nearly five minutes to be replenished, then no spoon to eat it with - I never did get a spoon, having to use a fork. Then the coffee had run out along with the fruit juice - enough was enough we gave up, packed and left to our visit to the museo.
