“More than you might expect....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Stayed here a number of times and I have to say, in terms of value for money (£29 per room per night) I'm not sure I've stayed anywhere better. I've paid over £100 for much plusher hotels but I sometimes doubt if they are any better in terms of real value for money. The Ibis is ideally placed for us visiting our daughter (on the A6 just off the M6). It was clean and comfortable, even if the room was a bit spartan. Bathroom was fine, bed comfortable and no noise (remarkably, given its location). The staff were young and friendly, and there is a bar which is quite well stocked, if a bit pricey. We paid extra for breakfast, which was fine. Car park is spacious. There is a pub next door for more refined tastes. We are repeat visitors to the Ibis, which I guess says it all.

We chose the Ibis Preston as we were attending a wedding close to this area. We chose the budget hotel option due to the low cost and the limited time we would be spending in the Hotel.

I was pleasantly surprised at this hotel ... it was modern, clean and comfortable.

We did choose the option of having breakfast which was an extra cost of £7.50 per person. The breakfast was plentiful and very tasty so the £7.50 each was money well spent.

The only downside to our room was that the Shower was a trickle ... we were unsure if this was due to the water pressure or if in fact it was broken.

This was a great hotel to use as a base and we would return.

We have stayed at this hotel a number of times when visiting family. We find it quite an accessible location and great vallue for money. Although the hotel does food which we have tried and found tasty but a little expensive, there is also a pub onsite which does great value meals like 2 for 1 etc. All in all we would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed for a couple of nights. Easy check in. Was out for most of the time, but it was a nice room to come back to. Very comfortable beds. Cheap and cheerful. Had a meal in the restaurant next door, very pleasant.

Stayed here on a very, very quiet Friday night just after Christmas. The place seemed empty, but admittedly we got the room for a bargain basement price of £30 room only. We didn't try the breakfast, but in my view it's overpriced at £7.50 each. We received a pleasant welcome at reception and the room itself was very clean with the usual Ibis facilities - a decent shower, soap and towels in the bathroom, a reasonably comfortable bed, a TV and tea and coffee stuff and er... that's it. Limited frills as I call it!

The location is convenient as it's right off the M6/M55 interchange on the way to Blackpool, but it also gives it a very sterile stopover-hotel feel. It's certainly not somewhere to go for a romantic getaway, put it that way. I also found the room a bit cold and echoey, even compared to other Ibis hotels. No pictures on the wall or anything homely like that. For £30 per room per night, I'm not complaining but if you are spending more, it's worth considering whether you would feel more comfortable elsewhere.

Having said that, there are plenty of parking spaces outside and if what you are looking for is a stopover place and nothing more, this will do the job nicely. We weren't bothered by traffic noise either even though the motorway is adjacent - the double glazing must do a good job. In summer though, leaving the window open could cause an issue with that as I don't think there was any aircon.
