“You get what you pay for”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

The hotel itself was basic but we knew that when we booked the room at 35.00 a night for a double room with breakfast. The breakfast otherwise was 7.95 each per day. There was only one extra pillow in the room, with no spares at reception. The shower gel was empty both nights, but we took our own . The kettle is on a self under the TV and by the plug so the steam trips the electrics in our friend’s room. Minor grumbles for the price the room was clean and warm,
The main problem was breakfast; the first day the hot food was cold and over cooked the bacon was like cardboard and only dried scrambled egg on offer. The second day we went to breakfast at 7.45 and they ran out most things including hot sausages, no croissants no eggs no bread or rolls. We complained as breakfast was on till twelve, at 8.45 we were advised by a very nice receptionist that the chef (a lose title) was cooking more, we left at 9.00 with still no sign.

I would stay again but source breakfast elsewhere, although the hotel is not within walking distance of any café.

Stayed last Saturday for 1 night, nothing like any other Ibis I have stayed in what made this hotel stand out was the hard work and dedication shown by staff (in particular the male who was on when we checked in and at breakfast) nothing was too much trouble we needed direction to a concert which he did not know so took the time to print from the internet the food was of a good standard served in a acceptable time with a really warm service we did wait a little time for the breakfast buffet to be topped up at 7am but we were informed of this and given half price so no complaints.
I would deffinately recommend this hotel to anybody looking for cheap room and not expecting the ritz.

Like many others we did a have problem finding it even with the signs that have been put up. This is a budget hotel so don't expect it to been a 5*. Clean bed, good breakfast & very nice staff. The cleaners could do looking behind the doors & vacuuming the edges of the room though. But would definitely stay there again.
