Ibis expands in UK

Even with the pandemic ibis, part of the Accor French hotel group, is expanding in the UK.
(See also in this week's BTN M4 stopover.)

Ibis Styles Bournemouth will be Accor’s 30th ibis Styles hotel in the UK, as well as the UK’s first ice cream themed hotel, with a creative interior design that tells a story through the design evoking memories of childhood visits to the seaside. The 76-room hotel has been designed with a delicious yet bold palette of ice cream shades and will house its very own ice cream station. Bedrooms come in three delicious styles: Mint Choc Chip, Tutti Frutti, and Very Berry, whilst ‘hundreds-and-thousands’ scattered corridor carpets and waves of colour mimicking sundae swirls of the syrup can be found throughout. With Bournemouth’s famous beach and pier right on the doorstep, the hotel is the perfect classic seaside holiday destination.

Ibis Styles Seven Kings (Ilford) opens on 12 July, offering a quirky, modern and comfortable experience just a stone’s throw from Seven Kings train station. The hotel décor is themed around nature, with the aim to provide an oasis of calm. Guests will arrive to a living foyer decked out with plants embodying the nature theme, whilst the fourth floor is home to a rooftop garden for guests to relax in.

The hotel has a number of eco-friendly attributes such as charging stations for electric vehicles, secure bike storage, energy saving lights as well as a water conservation programme.

Ibis London Sutton Point is about to open. It will offer 99 plaza concept rooms with a simplified and functional design and soundproofing to ensure guests get a good night’s sleep. Located just a 3min walk from Sutton train station, a 30min train ride from Victoria. Sutton Point is only 11 miles away from Surrey Hills Area, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Gatwick Airport is only a 30min drive and 45min to Heathrow.
