Reviewed 12 October 2013

I consider a kettle and tea and coffee making facilities a basis requirement for even the most basic hotel or B&B they don't have this instead they have a machine in reception with a charge of £1.20 to make your own in reception and then take a hot drink through the hotel this is unacceptable The shower and washbasin is in the bedroom and is not suitable for a family room the layout of the rooms are only suitable for couples. The provision of only one very flat pillow with no option of asking for another one dose not make to a good nights sleep. I have stayed in Budget hotels before (travel lodge for £19) I have fount there service good value for money. Unfortunately we have already booked to stay at the Leicester Budget Ibis again later this month and I will have to bring extra pillows a kettle tea bags and milk with me. On a positive note the staff were friendly and polite and the hotel was clean and fresh but I would choose Travel lodge in future

Dear Sir/Madam

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay at the ibis budget Leicester, but I was very disappointed to hear that your experience did not meet your expectations. Please allow me to express my sincerest apologies.

The new formed Ibis Family includes three brands – Ibis, Ibis Styles and Ibis Budget, from which Ibis and Ibis Styles offer Tea/Coffee making facilities in the room amongst various other services. These two Economy brands I still believe can offer you the services you need in the room as their rival counterparts would offer. Also to let you know that you can request and collect additional pillows anytime during your stay from reception.

We appreciate your feedback, and I hope that you will give us the opportunity to welcome you back to the ibis budget Leicester.

Yours sincerely,
Mayank Solanki
General Manager

This hotel provides good qualify budget accommodation. The service was fine and the room I occupied was clean and comfortable. A bonus was that, compared with my last visit, the WiFi service was free.

Writing for a friend who stayed.

Bed uncomfortable

Not a real en suite as the sink is in the room the loo inside a cupboard and the shower in another door

No kettle provided and drinks are 2.00 for two tokens downstairs.

Please be aware if you need to boil water you need to bring your own travel kettle.

Also be aware you cannot have people visit you in your room but they are welcome to sit down stairs but no bar or sofas there are tables and chairs though

Friend booked two nights but left after one due to the bed and kettle. The staff refunded the next night without asking and in all fairness the staff were all nice enough people.

Personally we feel the rooms are worth £25 tops a night.
