Stayed here for 1 night last week. Room was really comfortable with cool bathroom pod And great bed. Hotel itself is funky and modern with design-style furniture in lobby. Breakfast was great, but I found the system for getting food in the evening confusing. You get a menu in your room, and there is a floor of the hotel at... More

I stayed here for two nights and it's just what you'd expect from an Ibis - good value compared to other hotels in the area (which seem to be disproportionately expensive) and you get a comfortable bed and a decent enough room. There are no bells and whistles but for business purposes it works well. I was surprised by the... More

Comfortable bed, spotless clean bathroom; multi-channel TV; free Wi-Fi internet. - The breakfast buffet is fabulous with English and continental food and local and exotic fruit offered at a very...

We stayed here for three nights as a budget option while attending the Rewind Festival in Henley. The hotel location is excellent for the railway station. It is, without doubt a no-frills budget hotel and this was reflected in the fair price. Our room (1112) was tired and had a very nasty stained carpet. Our friends were two floors above... More

Excellent value rooms. Very comfortable beds and the air con ensures a good nights sleep in summer. Staff are all very helpful and offer a warm welcome. Especially Claudia in the dining room who couldn't be more helpful at breakfast. Feels like 5* when you are expecting budget. Very close to all shops and station. Street a bit lively at... More

Nice clean simple room but had no mirror at the dressing table. The bathroom was actually a disabled persons wet room and very tiny almost claustrophobic but the staff were friendly and extremely helpful.

Very poor, wierd smell in the room, which 'stuck to your clothes.' Only two hand towels, no bin, and empty shower gel despenser. Great location - shocking hotel. Definitely would not stay here again nice power shower mind!

Stayed here on a recent Sunday night. All I ask of a hotel is that it's clean and quiet and this ticked both boxes. Decor is modern and basic, and there wasn't much natural light due to the small window, but these are not serious problems for short stays in my book. The only grouse I'd have was that the... More
