I have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions and keep coming back.
If you accept that this is a budget hotel and base your expectations on that then you can be pleasantly surprised. The reception was quick and efficient and gave us a room in the area that we requested. The rooms are basic standard but have recently been up dated and are clean and serviceable and come with free wifi and basic TV channels plus tea/coffee (no biscuits but for this price ...).
You have to accept that the positioning of the hotel is also an issue that you must come to terms with. It is on a large estate with a pub nearby and a superstore (handy for anything you want (biscuits!). On one side you have the M18 and on the other a busy (24 hour) McDonalds. These are not a problem if you keep your windows closed or have earplugs, but don't let this put you off, it's not that bad.
We did have one problem when at 3.30 one morning some lads were causing havoc in the corridor, banging on their mates doors etc. This went on for sometime but the earplugs sorted it out for us. We did complain and were told these lads were on a final warning and therefore would be asked to leave, which they were. For our inconvenience we were given a free breakfast, which was a nice jesture.
We don't normally have breakfast in budget hotels because of the standard versu cost but this was very good, hot and good quality, so we may consider it next time.
On our last visit to the area we stayed in an much more up class hotel nearby which also had its drawbacks and cost more than double so will we be back to the Ibis, certainlywe will, we will bring our earplugs (because we are very light sleepers and like open windows) and bring our morning biscuits but this suits our needs and the staff do look after you.
