“Good for the money”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

Came here for a work football tournament held at Star City. Only staying one night with a large group so didn't need anything fancy as we only needed somewhere to sleep after a long day and night out.
Surprising to find how compact a room could be. The toilet and shower looked like a wardrobe. No kettle either.
We was staying on 4th floor and the only lift wasn't working. This was frustrating to say the least after a warm day of playing football.
Well positioned for the Wetherspoons. Will probably stay here again next year as it catered for our needs nicely.
Car park was very reasonable for a city center hotel. £2 for a day from memory.

Room Tip: Security are hot on your collar if you make noise of a night.

What I've come to expect of Ibis Budget, a clean and cheap city hotel. Ideal for groups of young people wanting somewhere ideally located for nightlife and at an affordable cost. Would definitely stay again. This one is well located in the city centre, has free parking, free wi-fi and a nice cafe/seating area downstairs near reception. Right on the edge of the gay village where there are lots of bars and restaurants and only a short walk into the main areas of the city centre.

I stayed at this hotel 3 times this year and honestly I can't fault it. Yes it is a budget hotel, but so is the room rate. Rooms and reception area were very clean, and all staff members were very helpful. I will definitely stay here again.

I am not going to rate the hotel on the rooms etc. Anyone who has stayed in an Ibis Budget or Etap before will know that they are pretty uniform and all the same. Great value for money if you just need a base and a place to crash but if you want all the little extras in a hotel then stay elsewhere and pay the premium for them.
This one is well located in the city centre, has free parking, free wi-fi and a nice cafe/seating area downstairs near reception. Right on the edge of the gay village where there are lots of bars and restaurants and only a short walk into the main areas of the city centre. At £33 for a double room for the night you can't really go wrong.
Would definitely stay again.
