My husband and I have stayed here twice before, en route to Italy, but were disappointed this time with the quality of our evening meal. Perhaps that was partly my fault because I asked for a burger that was cooked through as often burgers can be pinky red in the middle. What I got was burnt embers - obviously cooked through but well charred, tasteless and dry. I had asked for a menu written in English but there were some meals which I couldn't understand. I wanted fish but the waitress could not explain what the wording meant. I since observed that the fish was cooked in something that resembled a greaseproof paper bag. The chips were overly thin and dried out. Also, some of the items on the menu had sold out which surprised me at it was only about 8pm and the restaurant had not been open that long. In future I would be tempted to walk out into the Commercial Centre which has a Hippo Grill. The buffet breakast which is optional cost us £7.50 per head on top of the room rate at £55.95 for a double room. I arranged this very quickly via e-mail more than 20 days prior to our stay. The terms were that if we cancelled we would lose all our money but that was a risk we were happy to take. The breakfast was the typical cold self service buffet. The range of foods seems to have been reduced from previous visits. I was disappointed with the croissants as they were burnt and just crumbled. However, there was enough to choose from so we didn't go hungry. There is also a pleasant eating are outside. However, on all our visits we've experienced heavy downpours. I think this is probably due to the surrounding hills. The rooms are of the usual standard and decor for IBIS. They were clean, had a bath and shower overhead, hair/body wash, wi-fi access and a TV. The staff were pleasant. The location was good for close access to motorways.
