I chose IBIS city as it was close to the offices where I would be working. So on the basis that it was 6 minutes walk, 8 minutes if the multitude of traffic lights were against me.
My checking in and checking out was flawless. I was clearly expected!!
Room was very clean, superb shower and a mega comfy bed.
The only gripe I have was the very limited channels available on the TV. About 6 from memory.
Given the age of freeview I cannot see why a greater choice of channels is available. I have stayed at IBIS Budget hotels also and TV choice is much better.
I guess if I was being cynical the lack of TV channels may tempt guests to sign up for the £9.99 per day multi media and TV package....!!
Advice - Renew TV's to give greater choice, even the teletext was in the format last seem in the late 1980's
Having said that the breakfast hit the spot, although maybe a bit more choice around fruit (rather than 1970's tinned fruit cocktail) may be a good, healthy eating etc...five a day!!
