Ibis Coventry South
Ranked #31 of 39 Hotels in Coventry
Reviewed 20 June 2013

A little difficult to find, the map/directions need improvin, follow sign for Raquet Health and Leisure Centre,
What a nice surprise and a bargain through laterooms at £29 per night for both of us.
Nice rooms with most things you would expect from a quality chain. Very comfortable king size bed with memory foam pillows. Good choice of food and drink, very good quality and quite reasonable.
Health Centre is next door, but we didn't have time to use any of the facilities. Its run under the Virgin name so should be OK.
Staff were all friendly and helpful. There is a 15 minute deadline to sort out problems; there was no shower gel in the dispenser on arrival. I rang reception from the room phone and within 5 minutes hey presto somebody was at the door to sort it out. You can't argue with that sort of service.

I don't understand some of the negative comments on Trip Advisor we will definitely be using this hotel next time we are in Coventry and I'll look out for Ibis in future it I'm looking for a hotel elsewhere.

The room was always freezing, the heater worked sometimes, not suitable for any children as the room is that small, we had a travel cot and could only put it in the toilet doorway as no where else for it. Bed didnt really fit inbetween the bedside shelves so constantly hitting the lamps. Expected the room to come with an iron or a fridge, just the standard kettle.
Mold on the shower curtain, paint falling off the walls, lights didnt work, very dark room, think it was painted green.
The hotel was busy, the carpark was full, there wasnt much security as a party was going on in one of the rooms above and loud music and girls screaming could be heard but nobody around to tell them to stop.
I wouldnt go back but if you wanted a cheap room then it would be ok but we found that by paying an extra pound we moved into a better hotel that wasnt so cold and didnt look so worn out and tired.

Room Tip: If you want to stay for one night then its ok.

Thanks for your review. Also the issue you raised, we are currently repainting all the bathrooms witha lighter colour,
Regards the size of the rooms there is very little we can do as all the rooms are the same size.

Booked this Hotel as the usual Hotel's were booked up. Found the hotel eventually, near the Jag engine works. Booked in at reception, the hotel reminded me of Camponile type, (could be an ex Camponile hotel), with rooms awayfrom the main building. Found room, not much to speak of, somewhere to sleep, but not much else. I went for a walk, found an Asda's, plus a lot of traffic:), There is Virgin health spa, next door for the energetic type's. Didn't try the bar/cafe so can't comment on that. There was a lot of light coming through the window from an outside light which could affect sleep, luckily I was okay. Overall, cheap hotel, somewhere to sleep, but not much else. Not sure if i would stay here again.

Room Tip: Room I was in was away from main building, so you had people walking past which created noise.

Used the hotel overnight after a local family birthday, we booked 3 rooms on line which was quite painless and straightforward and only £35 per room.
The hotel is not the easiest to find but quite with a large car park when we arrived. The hotel is double storey blocks with chalet style room opening directly onto the walkways. The rooms are basic and dated but adequate for a comfortable night at a budget price.
The reception also houses the bar and eating area and we booked the breakfast at £8.50 each, this is a buffet style with limited hot dishes and debate able quality / value.
The staff were efficient and helpful

Room Tip: Quite on the back overlooked by lawns and trees.

We stayed at the Ibis last night whilst visiting Coventry for a concert at the Ricoh Arena. We booked it several weeks ago and upon reading the reviews, I emailed them and requested a double bed and they responded immediately to say that they had amended the booking and specified a double. We arrived and checked in, the room was fine. Basic but clean and perfectly adequate for our needs. When leaving the hotel to go to the arena, the reception staff were very helpful and called us a taxi (which seemed to appear within seconds) and were generally pleasant and welcoming. When we arrived back to the hotel at night, we sat in the bar and had several drinks before returning to our room for a very comfortable nights sleep with the added bonus of a late check out time of 2pm at no extra charge. We would certainly stay there again if visiting Coventry as it was excellent value for money.

Room Tip: When booking, email the hotel afterwards and request a double if required. Also, some rooms are ups...

Room is simple but clean and comfortable Bed very soft and had a good night's sleep. Breakfast had a good selection and hot. Plenty of car parking always a bonus and free. A well priced budget hotel and should not be overlooked for a stay in Coventry

Very good value for money in this cheap & cheerful hotel although the breakfast is pricey. The layout of the rooms reminded me of 1970s Butlins chalets or an american style motel and although the structure of the chalet was old it was clean and comfortable inside. Housekeeping staff were very friendly and helpful. Our dogs were welcome in the bar and restaurant & there was plenty of space to exercise them. Would definitely visit again for the price
