Reception and rooms were spotless. All landings were smelly and carpet has seen better days!! Big let down. Loads going for this hotel in this historic area but the stairs on the landings NEED a steam clean!!
Recently visited Dunkirk and stayed at the Ibis in Dunkirk for 1 night.I was in room 429.My room was nice enough.Room was clean and happy with the bathroom facilities.I had a double bed to myself,I had a chair and a wardrobe with several hangers and a smallish tv with a wide selection of international channels.BBC World in English was one of the channels on offer.The room did not have air conditioning,so wouldn't be the most pleasant of lodgings at the height of Summer or in the depths of Winter.The window in the room does open with a security chain. This is just the second Ibis I have stayed in the other being the Ibis Wien Haubtbahnhof.This Ibis hotel is much smaller and inferior to the one I stayed in in Vienna but was still a positive stay. I also paid for breakfast when booking my room,you have a reasonable selection for breakfast but once again not as comprehensive as the one in Vienna.No bacon and no scrambled eggs was a little disappointing.I was not overly keen on soft boiled eggs.I still left the restaurant fully filled though:) We were able to leave our bags at the hotel when we checked out to collect again when we were ready to travel back to the railway station.However,they do not operate a secure ticket system,bags were just put behind the back by staff.I would have had greater piece of mind if I was issued with a numbered receipt. So quite a good stay here,but definitely room for improvement.
Gorgeous staff, a lovely reception. Easy free parking right out front. Sadly, that is where it stops. This hotel needs some love from Ibis. I adore Ibis bur obviously Ibis do not love this hotel. The staff are doing their best but quite honestly, it is like polishing a turd. It needs serious help. The restaurant is dull and dingy, the corridors are worn and don't smell great, the bathrooms are stained and old BUT the room is spotless! A beautiful clean bed (I checked after other reviews) and as clean as it can be given the age. Come on Ibis, give this hotel the makeover it deserves!
We stayed here before catching the morning ferry. We had stayed the previous night at Ibis budget in Dijon and have stayed in Ibis before without issue. The staff were lovely at check-in but the the corridor had a horrible smell as did the bathroom in our room (very damp and musty). We were extremey hot in the night and there was no aircon so my partner felt very unwell. We ended up with the window wide open, so no sleeping then because of the traffic and people noises. It's very busy around that area. The bed was comfortable but we felt so tired and disappointed.
We have stayed here before but I think it is going downhill. The reception area and restaurant have been upgraded but the garage area is really not very nice and has a horrible odour. While our room was ok, the smell in the corridor was like the locker room of a rugby or football team. The room was also very warm and opening the window did not help much. The staff were very nice but I think the next time we are in town we will try somewhere else.
So I went on a little mini break to Dunkirk with my dad for 2 nights and stayed at the ibis hotel there. On arrival parking was quite an issue, their car park was expensive and other places weren’t free either. We managed to park on a free road but it was a main road so quite unsafe but anyway. The staff spoke a reasonable amount of English and were very friendly. We had a few issues with rooms, it wasn’t ready to start with on check in time and we changed rooms twice due to how small and cramped they were. Nights sleep was hot so windows were open but that also meant seagulls making noise all the time! Breakfast was very tasty and I was impressed. The rooms were fairly clean except the bathrooms to me looked like they needed a good scrub and they were rather run down. The downstairs area, breakfast was modern and clean but the rooms could do with improvement.
We stayed in this hotel thinking that it would be better than other hotels in cities close to Dunquerke but we were assigned a room that was 27°C while outside it was 15°C! We spent such a horrible night, we opened the windows but there are cars passing by constantly, people making noise and the light from the streets gets right into the room... plus the constant noise of seagulls and mosquitoes biting you off!! We didn’t sleep and when mentioned this to the receptionist at 4am he offered a fan. We didn’t they offer directly another room that wouldn’t be so hot in the first place? The hotel was not full! All in all the staff was trying to be helpful and friendly all the way. Wouldn’t stay again in this hotel if it is not winter, many more options available around.
The hotel restaurant was surprisingly good and good value too. Breakfast choice was great and the staff were friendly. The car park is VERY small and has an extremely steep entrance ramp, so beware if you have a low or large car.
We have have stayed in hundreds of hotels over the last few years big and small. This is a mediocre night’s stay with a few caveats. The positives: very friendly and accommodating staff, clean property and room, good room lighting, good water pressure in sink and shower, good continental breakfast for an additional charge, restaurant serves good dinner food, clean linens, comfortable bed, quiet room. The negatives: rooms are too hot due to lack of air conditioning, no air flow at all in the rooms (ask for a room fan), breakfast area is also very hot with no air flow (they really need to invest in air conditioning for the rooms and breakfast area). Bottom line: it is inexcusable for a 3 star hotel to make their guests sweat in their bedrooms while they’re sleeping. I would not stay here again. This is at most a 2 star hotel.
Stayed 9 nights at this hotel for work in Dunkirk. Very central location with plenty of restaurant choices close by and good location for walking around the harbour area. The hotel is as expected a low budget hotel but very clean and with a comfortable bed and pillows. A big drawback is the lack of ventilation and during summer its unbearable. They should invest in AC system. The breakfast(only continental) is OK, limited choice of cold cuts and would recommend the hotel to perhaps have sliced cheese instead of cut! The milk served is not cold as its left out and not in a chilled environment. Only one coffee machine and even when breakfast opens and its busy you have to wait in line. Choice to boil your own eggs, that was OK. Very good quality bread and nice pastries. Parking in the street outside not ideal if you arrive late.
