“Didn't live up to expectations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Being an Accor and Ibis branded hotel, and having seen photos of beautiful looking rooms, I had reasonable expectations. Well, I didn't get a room looking like those on the website. However, the staff were very friendly and the hotel was clean. It is well located near the main shopping street - walk to its far end to find a great selection of cafes and restaurants. The Steak House restaurant was very busy, but I didn't eat there. The hotel room was very tired - lots of stains and peeling paint and veneer. The TV's are very low quality. The rooms all face a central pool and if on a warm night anyone chooses to stay by the pool late into the night, you will hear every word of their conversation in your room. Very disappointed with the Accor/Ibis branding - lets the brands down.

Room Tip: Try the top level so you are one up from the pool - I didn't have one of them but they might be...

Although meant to be NON smoking, smelly dirty ashtrays metres from the door in outside pool courtyard and smoke blew into rooms. Rooms had a worn, old feel to them. Only used because of Accor Loyalty programme. Plus feature was the great Steak Restaurant- don't miss that! Some staff were quite surly and could improve their attitude for genuine caring and helpfulness.

What a disappointment. It may have been stylish in 1980 but certainly not now.

The paint is chipped, there is paint and stains on the carpet, cords aren't plugged in for the lamps or clock (I found a power board under the bed when I pulled it out from the wall), there are no bedspreads or valances and the milk for the meagre tea and coffee supplies is 6 portions of UHT - yuk!!

The bathroom was a disaster. It is actually dangerous. The shower is located over the bath, but the taps are underneath the shower head so when the water is turned on yuo could burn yourself.

The same taps are used for thebath, but if you were a parent bathing small children, you couldn't actually reach around the showerscreen (it is unable to be moved) to run a bath without first squeezing into the bath past the vanity!!

I paid $186 for the "family suite" for one night and feel jibbed. I've stayed in budget motels that are much better than this at almost half the price.

How can accor have this as one of their group? It makes me wonder whether I would stay with accor again.

My wife & I were in Warrnambool for family matter at short notice and used Accor membership to book nto Ibis Styles and the tarrif was quite reasonable. Very friendly reception and all contact from then on was the same - friendly & helpful. Rooms are a bit tired but comfortable and clean. We found the location was central to our needs and the walk to the CBD only took a few minutes. We would certainly stay there again.

This hotel is to be avoided - there are far better in Warrnambool. We arrived to find the reception closed, and it took 20 minutes to track down a recepionist to book us in. Rooms were very tired - lights did not work, alarm did not work, hair drier did not work and the bathrooms very tired and tatty. Breakfast a joke - cerials and bread, with milk on display in their plastic bottles. There was no bar or evening dinning facilities on site. The hotel has potential, and we know it has recently changed hands, but there is no excuse for its currebnt condition
