The hotel is a budget hotel but the quality of the room was very good, slightly smaller than Premier Travel Inns but had all the necessary plus points, clean, functional, serviceable and well worth the £49.(Room only). The bathing facilities were a shower with a WC and wash basin, all looked newly refurbished as. The corridor also 'smelled' newly decorated.
Although the information for the hotel stated there was a restaurant I think that was stretching it a bit. Breakfast was served between 6.30 and 23.00 noon, which was good but the size of the space available was inadequate for the number of rooms. We had to wait around for a table to become vacant, 'grabbing' one before someone else did,(We were 'pipped at the post' on two occasion. It was all self service, even the full English, (Bacon, sausage, egg, beans, mushrooms etc.), which at a Premier Inn is served to you. The cost was over £7. If I had known there was a Toby Carvery across the road I would have gone there for an 'all you can eat' breakfast for £3.95.
Although Premier Travel Inns are probably 50% higher in price I would choose one of them over an Ibis just for the eating arrangements. If I did stay in an Ibis again I would find out if there were any alternative eating facilities within close proximity to the hotel.
