OK Ibis is a basic stop. But for all that the rooms were clean and the bathroom suitably equiped and everything worked. I don't need anything else frankly.
I had not made booking and arrived seperately to other couple who had. I wasn't necessarily delirious when asked for a credit card for "identification" purposes - but she explained that she needed it and when you think about it I could hardly just swanny into a room without being identified first!
Well done Caroline for dealing with a grumpy git like me!
We were staying for the Elbow gig across the road at the Motorpoint so to say "convenient" was somewhat understating the case - our view was the back of the venue (including tour buses and lorries that were coming and going all night - but we loved it) .
Location is fantastic for seeing Cardiff which we did - the National Museum is half a mile away. Bute Park is just across the road from there. The Millennium Stadium is very close, and the Millennium centre and Cardiff Bay area is only 2 kilometres away (I know I measured it when I jogged there). Also the shops which I didn't quite succeed in keeping the wife from visiting.
We took advantage of the 12 noon to 12 noon check in check out time - which is a great feature. Am not quite sure how they do that!
Really excellent stay and visit.
Thanks everyone at the hotel you are doing a great job.
