Hotel is some way to the North of La Roche sur Yon by the side of a busy main road. Shares site with Ibis Budget and F1 hotels. Large car park but on entry to site hotel does not look very inviting with some parts looking run down. On entering however the inside is bright and modern. Staff were not over friendly but were efficient and professional. Our room was on first floor and was reasonable size with normal facilities available. On plus side free Wi Fi was available but on negative side there was no socket near a mirror to allow hair tongs etc to be used. Double glazing was good and no sound problems were experienced. Bed was poor however and mattress dipped in middle.
As hotel is some way out there are no other nearby dining options so we ate in the Ibis. Menus are provided in the rooms so you are able to study them before you go to the restaurant. They are also used as place settings and in case you still have not seen one all the dishes are written on large blackboards around the restaurant. We skipped the starters as they were limited and there was nothing we fancied. I had pork ribs with a BBQ sauce and my wife the dish of the day which was sauted chicken. Desserts were Cafe Gourmand (delicious) and Creme Brulee. Total cost of meal with aperitifs and half litre picheur of wine was about 80 euros. Breakfast was also taken there at a standard 9 euros. This included cereals, yoghurts, ham, cheese, pastries, limited fresh fruit and some warm potatoe cake and small pancakes. Selection of bread and of course coffee, tea and orange juice.. Overall our stay was OK but the outside of the hotel needs some attention to improve the overall impression you receive on arrival.

Room Tip: No great advantage as all rooms have similar outlook.

Value for money. Helpful staff. Comfortable room although would have liked to have been able to make a drink in the room and not to visit the bar.
Brakfast very good and varied.
Suprised that there was little noise from the traffic.

Driving from Cherbourg port south, chose this hotel for convenience and nothing else. Close to main road and very easily accessible. Beside supermarkets, shops and not far from town, this hotel ticked all boxes. Parking available beside hotel, decent restaurant in hotel where we ate decent and inexpensive evening meal, rooms basic but clean and functional, free WiFi and most importantly, staff very courteous and pleasant. We did not have breakfast in the hotel (it seemed expensive) and instead chose to drive into Supermarket car park beside hotel where we found choice of cafes offering much better value breakfasts.

Reviewed 17 October 2011

Stayed here 2 nights in early September 2011 having travelled down from Dinan in the first few days of a 3 week road trip in France.

We picked Ibis RSY simply for its location; we wanted some time on the Atlantic coast (St Jeans de Mont / St Gilles / Sables D'Olonnes) and also for its relative proximity to the Puy du Fou 'Cinescenie' on the Friday night (a stunning night out, 20,000 spectators and 1200 actors - do not miss it if you are in the area!). So we saw little of the hotel on the Friday night, as we came straight in from the coast and left barely an hour later for Puy du Fou, arriving back at RSY about 1.30am.

Given the various good reviews for their restaurant, we planned the Saturday so that we could eat there on the Saturday night. However, on returning to the hotel in the late afternoon, we were disappointed to find a handwritten sign in the reception area explaining that the restaurant would not be open at all that evening 'due to unforeseen circumstances' (we never did find out why, exactly)...

This meant we had to trawl RSY for a place to eat. The town is (as has been noted by others) 'unremarkable' in that it is a good location for visiting other places locally but has little of interest aside from that. In the end, with the clock ticking and tummies rumbling, we settled for Bistro Yonnais, which is attached to the Mercure hotel in the town centre.

So; three 'issues' with Ibis RSY: the sudden unexplained 'loss' of the restaurant on the Saturday night; the beds were comfortable enough but were falling apart (!) in that the legs were very loose (not something you could miss when cleaning the room, surely?) and we felt that the bathroom was still a bit dated (even though the blurb for this Ibis stated that bathrooms had all just been revamped). Perhaps Accor see this as a 'stopover' hotel and decided to spend the money somewhere else?

On the plus side, we had breakfast there prior to leaving for La Rochelle on the Sunday, and it was excellent. Plenty of variety, everything fresh, well laid out and restocked constantly, good humoured service - a cracking start to the day!

Had the restaurant been available and lived up to expectations we would probably have given a 4 (very good) rating, but with all considered we think the 'Average' rating is about right.

IBIS La Roche Sur Yon
Easy location to find just a mile or so to the north of La Roche Sur Yon along a main road with loads of shops / businesses. Very close to a big Carrefour supermarket with cheap fuel ( diesel was 1.24 euro / L ). Hotel has a huge parking area and two main entrances. Room was good standard and overlooking car park. Despite being by the main road the double window system stopped any road noise.
We ate in the restaurant and had an excellent meal – it seemed popular with non residents as well. There is an outside terrace where you could eat as well but the weather was a bit rainy so did not use it.
Overall a pleasant IBIS in a very convenient location with helpful & friendly staff – we will use this one again when in the area.
