I was going to a gig so I just needed somewhere clean to sleep. This ticked the box and so much more. For a 2 star place I was expecting somewhere clean-ish and a bit cheap looking.
My room was spotless and I couldn't fault it in any way. If a place isn't clean, I wont stay again period.
Sounds stupid but I like the fact most things in the room are disposable so you know they are deffo clean for the next person. You get plastic spoons for your tea/coffee (so obv they will be replaced when they have been used) and disposable plastic cups individually wrapped in the bathroom. I know some hotels reuse the plastic cups e.t.c, which I HATE but ibis dont obv.
Again sounds stupid but I like that they give you actual trouser hangers aswell as normal ones, cuz putting trousers on a hanger with a top is just a bit of a pain to me. Get a hairdryer aswell I wasn't expecting it. I guess i'm easily pleased haha.
If you're wanting super super quiet then this probably isn't the hotel for you. There was some noise from clubs, but only a little nothing major. I mean you could hear music but quietly.
The bed is the comfiest i've ever slept in. Would happily stay again in another ibis if not in Carlisle. So much better than Travelodge (as they are similar in price). I think £9,99 you could get unlimited wi-fi movies tv e.t.c which I thought was pretty good. If you don't have your laptop you can use the tv. or you can get 20 mins a day for £1 in reception. Pretty decent.
The note on the entrance door said after 10pm use your card key to swipe to get in the door. Well I got back at midnight and didn't need my key to open the door, so maybe a staff member had just come back from a break or something I don't know. So idk if it's super safe from people who aren't staying at the hotel, but I only stayed a night so that wasn't really an issue.
Probably one of my favourite hotels now for if funds are lacking. :)
