I stayed here for the first time recently as my company removed the hotel I normally stay at from our approved list (my employer is now modern day scrooge).
Upon arrival I parked at Millennium Square just opposite and underground as the hotel offers a discounted rate (£12.50 a day) by having the ticket stamped at the Ibis reception.
Check in was swift and the hotel features were explained to me clearly. The receptionist seemed to genuinely want to please.
Checking into my room there was a slight wiff of sewage but not as bad as some other hotels I have stayed at. Still not pleasant though!
The room was an odd triangular shape which I simply didn't like. It made things awkward such as storing luggage and the TV location.
I then wandered down to the restaurant for dinner. Service was again swift and friendly, the food was also piping hot which is always really nice.
The starter was excellent - the main course burger tasted cheap though. The bun was very hard to cut through as well. But, that said, including a drink the total was only £17 so as they say, you get what you pay for.
Having retired to the bedroom, the worst aspect of this room was the noisy bed. And I mean very noisy. Every time I moved it groaned and moaned..made sleep unpleasant.
So, overall, mixed feelings. The Ibis brand itself lived up to expectations, other than the noisy bed and sewage smell, but I would stay here again as the price £67 inc breakfast, is very competitive.
The staff were friendly and speedy and I do like to recognise this..
