4/10 Fair

Friendly, clean but terrible
Staff were friendly, rooms were clean but terrible. Toilet/shower was like a slightly large portable toilet, basin was across other side of room. Only some of the major TV channels worked. It's sold as budget but has a way to go to reach this level especially given rates.

Thought I booked 3 single beds in a row on the ground!...bunkbed dreadful for 6ft 5in son. Lighting either a searchlight or none.

2/10 Poor

The room is claustrophic (2.5m by maybe 7m) which includes a "pod" for the shower/toilet, reached by a 12 inch step. Be prepared to take your clothes off to use the toilet after someone has had a shower - or risk getting said clothes soaked from water on the floor. A tiny window allows some light into the room - but carry only be opened a crack. A noisy fan can provide some sense of "air" provided you leave it on all the time. Oh and beware the drinks dispenser downstairs. The price on the bottles does not tally with what the machine will take from your cash card. We left after 2 days of what had been a 3 day booking. Just had the sense of the walls closing in on us.

Ibis is a brand that never disappoints.
Stayed at an establishment that meets the Ibis brand and was not disappointed. The staff were fantastic and the location was quiet.
