I chose the Ibis as I needed to stay in that area and all other hotels were full.
My first impressions were good - it was much cleaner and smarter than previous Ibis hotels I've stayed in.
The room was fine. Clean and well let with good, quiet, aircon. The window could be opened thus avoiding the need to use the aircon. The The room had a prefabricated shower/loo which was well designed and very clean. The room was very quiet.
Now the less good bits:
Location - the area is a bit of a labyrinth. Make sure you know the lie of the land before navigating from the car park to the hotel. The Millenium Square car park is the more convenient of the two. A poiunt the hotel does not make on its website is that you can park outside the hotel (for a short period) for unloading.
Bedding - reasonable sheets, but pillows were thin and firm. The duvet was very synthetic in feel and not pleasant to sleep under.
Breakfast - self-service and simply the worst breakfast I have ever experienced. The machine coffee was not pleasant, the scrambled eggs gave the impression they had been cooked, microwaved 'just to make sure they're cooked', left in an oven overnight then transferred to a bain marie a few hours before serving. As a result I had pre-paid £7.50 for an inedible breakfast.More
