We have stayed at the Ibis Tempe Meads Quay and enjoyed it. Read reviews saying this one was better so thought we would try it as we visit Bristol a lot.
First impressions of the room weren't good. The mugs were dirty with a rim of brown at the top, the window was broken and the air cooler didn't work, the room was baking. There wasn't a net curtain and there was an office block close on the other side with a clear view of us.
They changed us to a different room without any problem and apologised, I thought the guy had a slight 'attitude' though.
Everyone else was friendly and I must praise Colin on reception who spent ages in vain trying to get my i pad to connect to their free wifi!
Comfortable beds and good soundproofing as it can be noisy with people coming back late from bars. No air conditioning, they have air cooling which doesn't seem that effective as the room became quite hot. Windows can be opened for fresh air which is nice but have to be closed when it becomes too noisy outside to sleep.
We didn't eat there as normally Ibis food isn't great, we tried a coffee but wished we hadn't, better to walk round the corner to Costa.
As we left I move the net to retrieve something and the net fell down!!
Ibis are good budget hotels but we prefer Ibis Temple Meads. It's brighter, has a better bar area and the rooms are cleaner.
Very good location, close to everything we wanted, many bars, coffee shops and restaurants close by.
