Basic rooom. Clean. Very good value considering how close you are to city. Had to ask for an extra blanket as they do not have extras in the room. If you did not have the blanket you would have needed the heater on all night. For how close you are to a main road you can not hear the traffic... More

I stayed two nights whilst attending a short conference. I only needed a place to shower & sleep and it's exactly what I got. The heater was great all night, bed was comfortable, room was clean. The shower & toilet were reminiscent of a cruise ship style cabin bathroom, small but well designed. Small niggles: A 30 cm step up... More

Rooms are small but well appointed. However, a bit more bench space and a couple of towel rails would make things a little more comfortable. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Plenty of free parking.

Very basic room, small, but clean. There are a lot of stairs and no elevator, so pack light if possible! The staff were friendly, but could not make up for the lackluster in the room. For $60 a night, it was just what we needed on our trip.

When travelling, all we need is a clean place, decent bed to sleep and clean ( small!) bathroom, at a good price. Ibis Budget ticks all the needs. Appears to be "away from the action", but is only short ( 5 min. ) drive. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed there for a night. Everything was as expected, perfect for a short stay. We were 12, almost all seniors. The staff were very helpful. In fact, when we checked in, all our baggage were brought to the room by them. Good hotel.

This hotel is very clean, warm and easy to find. A great little hotel for a stop over and have a rest when you are traveling long distance. The staff were very helpful. Would stay there again. The price of the room was great.
