Nothing massively wrong with the place but i think its overpriced for what it is. As someone else has said, satnavs will try and get you lost. I just ended up looking for the retail park and then found the hotel.

Staff were pretty good though a few issues at dinner but this was mainly due to quite a few people all seeming to turn up close together (me including) and ordering.

Rooms a bit dated and small, though the new Ibis bed is comfy (for me at least and i suffer with poor beds).

Reasonably quiet considering a busy road and even busier dual carriageway sandwich the hotel.

Would i stay again? Possibly if i can't get a decent price on the normal hotel i use which is closer to the business i am visiting, but would need to be a maximum of hat i paid this time.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. The situation with the satnav is currently further complicated by a local road closure. I am sorry for the inconvenience.
Ibis plymouth is priced competitively in the local market and we hope to welcome you again in the future.

Stayed here as was working in Plymouth the following day, easy enough check in, the rooms are like an American Motel, all individual like little flats.
rooms were clean enough, the towels were of a decent size too for a change.
The bed was EXTREMELY COMFY!!! It almost made me late for work because I didnt want to get out of it!
There was an onsite restaurant but I didnt use it, looked ok enough though.
Nicely located near to main roads but far away enough that you dont hear them.

Id happily stay here again

The hotel is a bit hard to find as the satnav sends you way past.
The hotel reception and lounge are good and the staff are friendly, however the room is a bit tired and the bed was not comfortable. The bathroom was clean and tidy, and the shower stall was good.
The carpet in the room was probably in need of a good clean as it was more like floor covering than carpet. The outlet sockets were hidden by the curtains in the window. I was not that impressed.

Ideally located. Rooms where a bit small, ok for an overnight stop. A bit like Butlins accommodation. Needs updating. Staff friendly enough. Didn't have breakfast as not included in price. Wouldn't stay again.

I often book Accor Hotels if i am on the Road for Business as also Leisure. Ibis Plymouth is located just nearby the the Highway. Surprisingly not to hear the Traffic from the Highwaynearby during the Night. Lots of Parking that is free! Rooms are located in a older Building and look a bit like 60ies Appartment houses from Outside. But they are clean and also furnished with the comfortable Ibis beds. a very friendly staff manage byhimslef the resto as also the check in. Dinner and Breakfast according the Ibis standard.
If you are not travelling by car is this Hotel quite hard to find. Its in outer Plymouth located nearby a big Highway entrance/exit Ring.
Price was with 45£ good.

Room Tip: if very sensitive for noise choose the room on the backside of the building. (not in front of Parkin...
