I have stayed in many budget hotels but this Ibis Budget is by far the worst.
So grateful to have only stayed for just one night - the best part was leaving!
Being £30 a night, I wasn't expecting much but where to start; very limited car parking space, terrible service at reception (by girl with partly shaven head), several long hairs in the towels, toilet in a cupboard, clinical feel in the room (double room), paper thin walls and shower in the room. I was woken up at 5 in the morning by a drunken guest who was not asked to be quiet by staff.
The hotel is clearly designed around booze loving youths - this is fine as long as Ibis Budget change its accommodation description from hotel to hostel.
Needless to stay I will not be returning. I am confident that I could get a much better room for a similar price at the Premier Inn. The ONLY redeeming feature is it's location as it is near the city centre. Other than that, do yourself a favour and don't bother.
