“Comfortable stay”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This was my first experience of an Ibis Budget. We don't normally stay in Ibis brand as they tend to only take two people to a room, so with a family, this isn't ideal...however, Ibis Budget takes three to a room so is much better for us. The room was small but fine for our purpose. It was spotlessly clean and the bed was fine, if a bit on the hard side. The shower is in the room itself which is a bit weird but ok for us. However, if you were with someone other than your partner then it would be awkward using it even though the doors are half frosted!! It was quiet at night and the check-in was efficient, friendly and quick. Lots of business people seemed to be using the hotel as a cheap overnight stop. We took the breakfast (at extra cost) which was basic but filled us all for the day ahead. I would use this brand again and we enjoyed our stay. Wi-Fi was free. Great!

We have stayed here twenty times over the last four months. The location is perfect for the A50 and A38. Ample car parking spaces. Reception staff are always very friendly but to be fair the check in time can be a little lengthy due to the invoice system. The rooms are very clean and shower always hot and powerful. Toilet yes it is in a cupboard but always clean. Plug sockets are a bit of an issue if you use a hair dryer and look in the mirror at the same time. Beds are always comfortable, if you want more towels or pillow staff are always accommodating. And the prices we have paid have been between £50 and £35 which is not bad. One occasion we have had breakfast which was value for money. Air conditioning in the room when hot does not cut the mustard but overall it is what it says on the tin, a budget hotel, have stayed in much worse!!!

Room Tip: Ask for more pillows, towels etc. if you need them

I have booked it for 1 night stay - the only reason to go this place was its price and location - cheap place to stay for a night and it is just outside Derby/Burton. This palce is also easy to access buxton/matlock bath as sometime the prices are really high. So whenever I have plan in the area i always stay this place so I can stay in a quiet pleace and enjoy my time.

Hotel is well renovated/clean and in good condition. Room are good size and had good views, however not a lot of room to move around the bed and the en-suite facilities are close and compact, but do the job in a no frills manner but dont forget this is budget hotel. Breakfast is a continental buffett with all you can eat and is good value.

Always i found friednly reception staff which are very helpful and friendly and there is lots of parking out front as this is next to services. I have stayed here several occasions and would stay again.

We booked a one night stay at the Ibis budget for 05/06/14, the price was not particularly budget when we added on 2 breakfasts. However the hotel is new, clean and in good condition. Our double room was light and had good views, however not a lot of room to move around the bed and the en-suite facilities are close and compact, but do the job in a no frills manner. Sockets and mirrors were a problem as there was no socket close to the main mirrors so using a hair dryer was difficult. There is no kettle in the room, so no complimentary tea/coffee/chocolate. Also the budget bit means there are no shower gels etc in the room but you can buy them at reception. Breakfast is a continental buffett with all you can eat and is good value but it puts the room prices up over what I would consider budget. The reception staff were excellent, very helpful and friendly and there is lots of parking out front.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that looks out over the fields at the back of the hotel.

Stayed here on 30/6/14 for 1 night. We booked the triple room for 3 adults. Room was very clean and fresh but only 2 plug sockets available meant having a rotating system for charging phones/laptops. Beds were comfortable but woke a few times due to noisy guests in other rooms, seemed to go on until late at night/early hours but not the fault of the hotel. The showers in the rooms are separate to the toilets and have a frosted glass door (that isn't that frosted) so you might want to hide your dangly bits if travelling with people you're not that close to. Easy access to Derby city centre and only about a 30 minute drive from Alton Towers.
