“Great for a budget stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

My party got two rooms between us in July and everything bar the location was great. The rooms were clean and the staff were lovely and polite! The reception staff couldn't give us a bottle opener as they weren't allowed for some reason but they opened our beers for us...one at a time. But honestly for a budget place is great.

I understand that this room was cheap, and at that price you can't expect much, but considering they advertise a comfortable night, I at least expected a bed frame. Instead I found myself sleeping on a very unforgiving mattress on a plank of thick mdf wood. It let to a very uncomfortable night's sleep, and a very tight lower back all day today. On top of that, air
Con didn't work, neither did wifi (although according to staff it should have been...) and the shower alternated between freezing and scorching. The only saving grace of this hotel was the very friendly, and helpful staff who were happy to oblige our many requests. All in all I made a mistake thinking you can have a good nught's sleep in a budget hotel. A mistake I won't be making again. The cut corners were not worth the money saved.

Stayed here for 1 night on Sat. 7th September. Booked a room for 3 people, luckily one was a child of 13 of his bed was like a single bunk over our bed !! The double bed I found to very hard, didn't really get a good night;'s sleep. There is a cubile which is the toilet ( only toilet as sink is in the room ) and a seperate shower room, the only problem about this is that I am an early riser and when I showered I wakened everyone up !!! as the shower is in the actual room. But don;t get me wrong for the money this is very good value for money, the reception staff were very friendly and if you din't like their continental breakfast on offer then there were a few places you couild get a full breakfast or whatever you wanted. There is also the Cherry Tree Farm for dinner etc. All in all a present stay and I would go back again if I was in the area.

No problems with this hotel. You get exactly what you expect. Cleanliness, reasonably quiet except for the odd person who doesn't know how to close a door at night without slamming it, convenient for Derby & cheap, particularly if you book far enough ahead.
No complaints yet and I'm a regular visitor.

Following on from recent error ridden stays at Premier Inn's and my surprise love of the Ibis Budget on Manchester Great Ancoats Street, on return to Derby I thought I'd try the Ibis Budget on the outskirts at Willington. I was also delighted to be able to take the dogs with me this time for a supplement of £5 per dog per night.

The journey was a quick and easy one along the A38, and the hotel is well set back to eliminate any noise concerns. There was ample parking and I was able to park up right by the large grass garden area to exercise the dogs with ease. I was pleased to see that there was absolutely no excrement lying around from previous users. Across the car park there was a popular and rather good full-of-locals pub restaurant where the steak was amazing and the cakes/deserts were all beyond massive, and also a service station with all the usual amenities.

Service was friendly and efficient; breakfast was fresh and tasty. The rooms were almost identical to that of the previous Ibis budget, with a very comfortable double bed and a great shower. The only downside was the air-conditioning at this one isn't as good and the carpet was stained. It could really do with being replaced, but a minor complaint in an otherwise faultless stay.

I also was pleased to see that disabled rooms are available on the ground floor and the staff seemed well versed in disabled people's needs.
