It's not the Ritz but its location and general situation are good. Easy to find off the M1, it has an inexpensive public car park opposite the entrance which makes up for not having its own.
As other reviewers have said, the rooms are small but adequate, and I particularly liked the ability to turn the heating down - not every hotel has this, or is working if offered. The bathroom cubicle is a self contained plastic pod that has been walled up in the corner of the room with shower, small sink and WC, a bit flimsy to be honest but nothing actually fell off or broke when I used the facilities, so I can't complain! The large bed was very comfortable, and I measured the sound levels in the room at 8am (next to a main road and with residents leaving their rooms for breakfast) and the ambient sound was a very creditable 19db.
Breakfast was extra but well worth the £7.95, the usual buffet style offering, excellent bacon but disappointing scrambled egg (this dish always disappoints in budget hotels, sadly) and strangely the only tea bag on offer was The Earl Grey (from Twinings) which I personally like, but many may want a cup of "builders tea" and it didn't seem to be available.
Actually this was my first stay at an Ibis, it was great for what it was, a cheap(ish) city centre hotel with a reasonably priced bar and breakfast tariff. I would stay there again.
