With the memory of the IBIS Chesterfield barely cold in my mind, it was with a comfortable heart and no fear of what lay ahead as I trundled up the A46 towards Lincoln, because all these outlets are clones of one another, aren't they?
Following my pleasant stay at Chesterfield, they were on the verge of becoming my preferred hotel for travelling to dog shows when a return journey in a day wasn't feasible, primarily because of their pet friendly policy at no extra charge.
You will generally be provided with two options for your room, a flexible rate that allows you to cancel up to 6pm on-line and 7pm directly with the hotel on the day of arrival, and a 'budget' rate which does not permit cancellation at any time. Despite the £10 price difference (on this occasion I paid £48) I tend to opt for the flexible rate because I am never quite sure what might get in the way of travelling.Once you have selected your room (you can book a maximum of 2 rooms on their site at any one time) you will be asked for your name, e-mail address and credit card details. If you are staying at one of their outlets and paying cash or cheque, you will be required to produce a passport or driving licence as proof of identity, I am guessing this is to prevent fraud and money laundering.
Conveniently situated on an industrial estate just off the A46 Newark to Lincoln road, you could be forgiven for missing the hotel as it is not particularly visible from the main road, and it is not well signposted. There is ample parking in front of the hotel, when I stayed it was only a ¼ full.
Other than the fact that reception was on the right at Lincoln, there was minimal difference between the reception desk here and the one at Chesterfield. There is a small comfortable seating area adjacent to reception where you can sit and read the daily papers, and to the rear, there is a small bar and dining area.
