Last year I stayed here with a group and the card key mechanism on the door of one of our rooms broke and we were locked out of our room for an hour & a half... we were on a really tight schedule that day and the manager was well aware but did virtually nothing to help us, until eventually the kids who were in that room got so fed up of waiting that they decided to break the door in to get their belongings and leave. I stayed there again with a group last night and they now have signs all over the hotel saying its completely a non-smoking hotel now even though the corridors still smell of cigarette smoke a bit, but after an hour or so one of my clients comes to me and says that someone appears to have placed a sock over the smoke detector in the room... she also found cigarette butts outside the window. She told the receptionist who didn't understand as the receptionist barely spoke English so I spoke to the manager and he told me "it's impossible... housekeeping would have seen it as they cleaned the room today"... I went to the room and brought him the sock in question... in the meantime he appeared to have run away.
It's a shame because it's a really nice hotel, the staff are friendly, the rooms are great and the food is good... they've just got it really wrong... I really hope that other guests don't get treated like we did.

Room Tip: All rooms are good and what you gain from being at the back of the building, you lose being at the f...

I spent two nights at the Ibis Rugby East following a stay at the Ibis Birmingham airport some two weeks previous. I decided to snap up the meal deal £22 dinner bed breakfast and 24hr internet access.
Where do I begin , starter tepid soup with stale bread ,okay simple things can go wrong .
Next up medium rare steak ? Yep flesh in the insisde flash cooked on the out.
I asked the waitress to take a look to which she responded "you did ask for medium rare.
Yes you are correct however that is not cooked , to which she picked it up walked away.
10min passed and she returned with a new steak of the well done variaty .
I took one bit got up walked to the same waitress at the bar and asked for 4 packets of crips and a beer. I was then charged the in-correct amount for the beer one I had at dinner and the one I purchased at the bar.To add insult to injury they tried to charge me for them again at check out .The following night my starter of mixed platter had plopped on top two FROZEN cold onion rings.Sent back asked for my main only please to which a lamb shank that was surely a ready made frozen food package.The food at this hotel is the worst I have ever eaten any place in the world .The internet access worked a treat DISASTER will never book an Ibis ever again

Room Tip: Never book an Ibis is the best bet ....

Hotel booked by work room nice and clean, tv coffee making stuff, shower only no bath.
Staff very nice but evening meal was poor, breakfast was fine. This hotel is in the middle of a large industrial estate nothing near by, if you are staying you need a car and eat out.

We have family who live 2 miles from this Hotel and so have stayed there a couple of times a year for the last 8 years, but this is the last time. No-one at reception on arrival, child's bed not made up, very poor cleaning and room preparation, one small bath towel.
At breakfast one very overworked staff member dealing with the restaurant as well as check-outs at reception could not ensure there were cups, plates and cutlery in place at the breakfast buffet. It is the cheapest of the chains, but they have economised to a level that is not acceptable.

As the new General Manager we have acted upon this and we ensure that we have the correct staffing levels on at all times. I have spoken with the team about this and have already put in place new procedures to prevent this.
