“Bank Holiday weekend away”
Reviewed 2 September 2011

On arrival we fortunately gained an on site free parking place but lost it later and had to park 10 minutes walk away on an adjacent street.
Hotel lobby, restaurant and bar area looked very nice and inviting. Unfortunately our room did not match up to expectations. Very basic would be my description and not a patch on Premier Inn/Travelodge type of budget accommodation. We were offered a family room with disabled access facilities and asked to be moved to an alternate room which the staff did very efficiently. Location of hotel was good, 10 mins walk from the city walls. Breakfast was excellent however the accommodation was a little pricey due to it being a bank holiday.

I am a coach driver and I take people all over uk and abroad on there holidays I have lost count of hotels I have stayed in!
I had a family room which 3 of us shared the room was clean!
If you are in york sight seeing like I was your only gonna sleep in the room any way!
If you want a 5 star hotel then dip in your pocket and pay 5 star prices
Remember it's a budget hotel not the Hilton
Overall I would stay here again the breakfast are really good room was clean beds were clean! Bathroom was clean !

Was really looking forward to my bank holiday break in York.
We booked it about a month before going and thought that the Ibis hotel, although basic, was still going to be a decent place to stay. Ha ha.
When we arrived we were greeted by a very moody blonde girl who said straight away" you cant see your room til 2". Fair enough, but her attitude was very surly.
When we eventually got into our room, it was very shabby, tiny and our towels were stained and the bathroom mirror broken.
My boyfriend went to ask if we could upgrade, and there was a different receptionist on duty. She was wearing jeans and a checked shirt and drinking diet coke whilst yacking to her friend on the phone. She could see my boyfriend looked cross, so legged it!!!
The room became very hot in the evening so we had to open the window (broken). We were very lucky that we were on the third floor.
However, on the positive side, the breakfast was nice and the reception area very tidy and clean. Pity the same couldnt be said for the bedroom. Would never stay in an ibis hotel again

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!!!!!!!

Stayed here with a group of 40 people for 4 nights. A mixed experience. On the one hand, the hotel staff found a conference room for us at a moment's notice and tried hard to please. On the other, wi-fi and use of the hotel's PC were chargeable (who charges for wi-fi these days?!) - a money-grasping attitude guaranteed to offend. Breakfast choices were predictable and unexciting, but there was plenty of room. Our group came back from outings each evening at around 10.30 and headed for the bar; on two occasions only one bar staff was available (the other had called in sick and there appeared to be no back-up). This was very poor service, and even poorer was the fact that the bar ran out of wine, and had still not restocked the following evening (fortunately there was a Sainsburys opposite....). My complaint about a broken light in my room, repeated each morning, was never dealt with. There was supposed to be a scheme that if your problems were not solved within 40 minutes, you got a free night - I won't be taking up the offer!

Stayed here for 2 nights to visit York races
Walikng distance to the city and the racecourse
Hotel was clean & staff friendly and helpful
Rooms clean but very basic
Breakfast :- not a great deal of choice but plenty and what there is is nice
Expensive (£125 ) per night for room, would expect to pay about £50 -£75 for this standard..
Prices probably high due to racing season and locality
WORST point are the beds..they are awful..just woodern boards with a mattress on top,!!
Read on TA about the beds before we went and they are worse than I expected, we did take two pillows from home which helped slightly , but still a poor nights uncomfortable stay.
The state of the beds is mentioned on loads of reviews about these beds, at those prices i would have thought the Ibis management would consider upgrading them .

Room Tip: Tip is if you are going to York for the races book a room earlier at a nice hotel ..give this one a...

Stayed here as we were attending the Ebor, we got a good rate and its within walking distance of the race course. Very nice girl on check in and although we arrived early there was a room ready for us. Room basic similar to a travelodge but clean and tidy, the bed was as others have described....a thin mattress on a board on legs and very hard! There is a tv in the room but unless you pay £9.99 you cannot even watch BBC/ITV etc but we were out all day/night so not a problem, slept reasonably well on the hard bed but was woken quite early by doors banging and this continued throughout the morning, think they need to fix a different closing mechanism or something! The hotel was fine for the one night but i think if your looking for something in a similar price range you,d be better off at the travelodge thats recently opened on micklegate!
