New and clean rooms all with a sea view however my boat want floating. Lacked a dining and common area and was sometimes hard to find staff. Will be a backup option if necessary. I'm sure some of these things will get sorted as it is still very new.

restaurant & bar are great, location is great, but oh the rooms! - no hot water in shower, bar fridge had been ripped out and a full size fridge dumped in another part of the accommodation but no 'mini-bar' inside, mystery cords dangling from the ceiling, cold grey hard electric light, wood veneer flaking off the insides of doors, a...

Went to IBS a couple of times to dine in their outdoor restaurant. They have tasty oven-roasted pizza at affordable prices and a great outdoor atmosphere to enjoy your meal in. They had friendly staff however their food service was a bit slow and might need to be improved. We waited a while for our food orders to be served...

We had lunch here as a family of 3 and could not fault the service. The people were friendly, food was good and beer was cold. Plus its a good location with a very nice feel to it. Good spot for lunch or a drink and a popular hang out for expats on a riday and Saturday night.

The last time we visited IBS, service was abysmal, food mediocre, but there seems to have been a change of management or maybe the training has improved. We were treated to first class attentive service last night - food from the Chinese restaurant was excellent and delivered to our table by a helpful waitress. Good Chinese menu too. Keep on...

If you're looking for a resort style accommodation, this isn't it, but for work or brief stays, the IBS is fine. Most of the rooms have a stunning view of the ocean, though, and that is more than worth it. The facilities inside are basic, and the bathrooms are in desperate need of renovation and repair (my shower door was...

It's getting quite tired and needs money spent on it, but the staff are very good and do their best to keep you happy. The shower screens are coming off and really should just be replaced with a shower curtain. There is working air-con, fridge and TV with movie channels and ABC 24. Wifi is very slow and only available...

The rooms at this hotel are a reasonable size and mostly on ground floor. Beds very basic with clean linen but not very supportive mattresses. The bathroom, despite new fixtures, had a shower door which did not work properly and the water was never more than tepid, despite asking the staff if they could turn up the temperature. The staff...

I was booked into IRB for 2 nights but left after the first night. The room was very basic, the TV did not work and the only bedside lamp had a European plug fitting (!!) so did not fit the wall socket. I looked for someone to remedy these issues but reception was closed. There was no drinking water in...

We use IBS on a regular basis, but find that the restaurant service leaves a lot to be desired. Had to wait 45 mins for a lunchtime pizza which never came. In the end we gave up waiting. On the plus side, the mudcrab in the evening is great and the dancing ambiance on Friday and Saturday is first class.
