I've been here twice on business.
The first time I had a lovely spacious twin room on the second floor.
The second time I had a horrid, pokey, squished room on the third floor.
Both times I was there for three days and would refuse a room on the top floor in future and deliberately book a twin room as you need space to relax after a day's work.
The third floor is the ibis equivalent of a flop house floor.
The "complimentary" breakfast - who do they think they're kidding, it' not complimentary, it's included in the price but ibis have taken the opportunity to insult their guests intelligence on arrival. The food is poor. If you like healthy eating, you have to take your own food. There isn't even a bowl of chopped fruit, maybe a couple of apples and a banana lying around with very poor quality Muselli.
As for parking, that's not complimentary! I'd rather have the option of not paying for the appalling breakfast and go with complimentary parking.
The hotel is south of the rail tracks where the traffic is horrendous. 30 mins for 2.5 miles. Better to stay north of the line if you can.
I really cannot recommend eating in the hotel, the food is very poor. The couple of local pubs are no better, so you're in for a trip somewhere. I now stop on the way back from the client premises so I don't have to fight through the worst in-town traffic I've come across. I certainly wouldn't want to live here. One of the client's attendees had been booked into a hotel 11 miles away and took 90 mins getting in!
Like many hotels the cleaners tuck the duvet in under the mattress. Who sleeps like that? Nobody does! So you, the guest, have to pull everything out and remake the bed. What is the point in that? Why do I need to do their job? Do it right the first time and not only is it less work making the room up, it's less work for the guest too. Win, win. Why make life more difficult for everyone?
Overall, I'd happily stay in one of the second floor twin rooms again but not in one of the horrid little doubles in the roof, that was simply unpleasant. It's acceptable for a business trip if you're in one of the much more spacious twin rooms. If you think healthy eating means skipping butter on your toast, you'll be fine with the food. There are good places to eat but not within a mile of the hotel, so you'll need to drive or cab it to a restaurant.
