The hotel is lovely and the staff were really helpful but just wish we could open a window - it was so stuffy.
Disliked: The fact that it was very hot and we could not open the window.

Great hotel and the price is amazing too. The room was basic but had everything you needed. It was very clean and modern; excellent and would definitely stay again.

Liked: Never slept on a more uncomfortable bed - dirty floor not even a kettle or coffee - reception being renovated was not aware prior to stay - asked for a quite room was next to main road ?? Parking is too expensive and if you want food or drink you have to walk across to the other hotel - we will not be returning

Liked: Comfortable bed, friendly and helpful staff, cheap.
Disliked: Basic room with nothing but a bed and bathroom provided - no toiletries or tea and coffee. One thing I really don?t like about Ibis Budget hotels in general is that they don?t even provide a kettle in the room so one can?t make a hot drink, even if you bring your own. I often take a sachet of cuppa soup or a pot noodle when I?m travelling as I frequently arrive at a hotel too late to get dinner. But I am unable to prepare it in my room due to lack of a kettle. The staff however were very helpful and prepared it for me in their own kitchen area, but I would like the independence to prepare as many drinks/snacks as I like within my own room rather than having to ask each time. I really don?t understand why they don?t provide a kettle in the rooms. It wouldn?t cost th that much and it would make such a difference.

Disliked: It took ages to warm up, and didn't get very warm. There were hairs in the shower and on one of towels. It didn't feel very secure; could walk to room without seeing any staff, no external doors were locked.

Disliked: Stayed here before, we knew it was basic but this time we weren't informed when booking that the lobby area was under construction plus the lift was out of action at times. My wife who suffers from back problems wasn't at all happy climbing two flights of stairs. The final nail in the coffin was when I checked my bank account to see I was charged twice. Contracted the staff about it and they said it would take 3 to 4 working days to refund my account. The problem is if I had not checked my account I would have paid twice. Won't be returning.

One night but good value...
Liked: Easy booking in/out, location, car parking facility, friendliness of staff
Disliked: Rooms too hot. Temperature control did not appear to work as wouldn't reduce temp. to 20C as it stated. Lowest we got was 22C - too hot for a bedroom and couldn't open window due to street noise. Pillows too thick! Couldn't get coffee in morning as workmen in and area cleared
