Arrived here with my wife and 18month old daughter to be told that the baby cot we requested at booking was not available. Walked into room and was immediatly hit with the woodchip wallpapar and tired condition of the family room - could we last three days here? No we couldnt! I went downstairs and informed the girl behind the desk that we'd be checking out in the morning. I wasnt sure we could due to our booking conditions, however she accepted that we werent happy with the hotel.
To top everything in middle of the night our daughter fell out of the main bed on to the tile floor hitting her head.
The hotel front (not in pictures) has currently (Sept 10) got the whole road dug up and has some major works going on there. Worth mentioning as they seem to hide this in their photos.
I do have to say the girl behind the desk at checkin and the next morning seemed very sincere and was genuinly helpful - I think she was probably the only French person we met on our 3 day break there that was actually pleasent.
My advise - dont visit with kids and know what an IBIS offers (or doesnt!)
