“Basic but good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and for value for money you can't really fault it. It is basic but has everything you need and lots of parking. The beds were comfortable and pillows were great. Location is nice and quiet but only 5-10 mins drive into the city centre. We would use this hotel again.

Ibis has wonderful soft beds and pillows. The rooms are small but give you the best value for money. We had 2 rooms @ GBP 39 each !!
There is ample parking just outside your door ! The location was perfect for us as we wanted to be close to Warwick University as well as Coventry.
The Reception / Bar / Restaurant are good and everyone is very friendly. If you are not interested in going out then the pizza is good. For vegetarians the options are limited.

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms are good if you have a lot of luggage like we did.

This was not my first choice of hotel to use for us and our dogs attending Crufts however, it will always be first choice from now on. The staff were extremely helpful, polite and courteous. The food was good value and the rooms were lovely. They are very dog friendly regardless of the size of dog. It is a bit awkward to find as the sat nav takes you to the wrong side but it is a little gem. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

OK.. a 5 night stay at a hotel I have used before: It's a budget hotel, so I guess it's reasonable to anticipate that the rooms may be a bit tired and approaching refurb, which was indeed the case. However, it is not unreasonable to expect slack cleaning, which even though drawn to management's attention after the first night, remained unaltered throughout my stay.
To be more specific... 1) Towel hooks had been fitted, and the plaster dust on the ledge where the floor meets the wall had not been cleaned up, and this remained so during my stay. 2) The ledge by the window had not been dusted for some time, and a short finger wipe produced a goodly heap of dust as shown in the pictures added to this review 3) I had cause to move the comfort unit to access the TV plug only to find a considerable build up of dust and waste paper behind the unit.
I understand from the hotel management - who were the usual courteous and reasonably efficient Ibis staff - that the cleaning of rooms is contracted out: Unfortunately I know not to whom as I would happily name them so their shoddy work is exposed: One hopes that Ibis management takes them to task to make sure the usual high standard of Ibis hotels is resumed.
That apart, as a budget hotel... does what it says on the tin, and the breakfast is of acceptable quality and plentiful for a buffet type arrangement.

The hotel is perfectly placed for my work. The staff are amazingly helpful and very friendly. The beds and bedding are magnificent - such a good nights sleep. There seems to be no other nearby hostelry, not within walking distance, other than the Virgin Active Lesiure Centre. A very nice place but at £25 a visit, a little bit steep - a shame because a swim or place to workout would be very welcoming - surprised there is no liasion deal / discount between the hotel & leisure centre.

We usually stay in the Coventry central Ibis but, because you more than doubled the price in a space of two weeks for the Spring Fair, we chose this hotel instead. The hotel is built really cheaply , more like a mobile home. The rooms were small, and the bath very slippery. The location is quite bad, and the traffic is really bad. The curtain in my room was dirty. Given a choice ,I would choose the other Ibis.
