“Good clean budget hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Ibis Thornleigh in July 2013 for one night. On approaching the hotel it looked very austere and 'not so welcoming'. We were pleasantly surprised to find it a comfortable and exceptionally clean hotel. The reception staff member was most helpful, courteous and friendly. Our room was small but well appointed with everything we required. The room was very quiet considering it is on a main road. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was a little strange, having to step up into a pod-like small room but again it was well appointed with the shower recess quite roomy. We had the buffet breakfast and which was the usual fare but more than enough variety and the staff were very pleasant. Overall I was happy with our choice to stay there and will again next time we visit family in Sydney. I will recommend this hotel, but don't get too excited, it is a budget hotel but a good one. Especially suited for those who just want to sleep and then get up and go. Not a hotel to hang about and enjoy the ambiance! Give it a try you will be happy with the price and a very clean, comfortable hotel. I would like to give 4 stars but will stick with 3 because of the outside appearance and compact rooms/bathrooms.

Room Tip: The hotel is on a main road, ask for a room at the back.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

I had forgotten how small some of the Ibis hotel rooms can be. Clean and comfortable room and adequate for an overnight stay. The room would have been too small for longer stays with 2 people, or business stays where both guests need access to a workstation. Small luggage storage / wardrobe space. Only one chair in the room. The hotel would have gladly supplied a second chair, but the room was too small to have another item in the room. Nothing in the room other than a kettle and 2 mugs, but everything available from the Bar / Café (for a fee). Surprisingly, the quality of the food in the restaurant was very good.

Although the hotel was adequate, I got food poisoning from a tepid lamb curry pie. It took more than a week to get better. Doubt I will be going back.
The room was smallish and the bathroom (I got to know it intimately) is minuscule.

Can't really expect too much of a budget hotel but their prices weren't too cheap and surely they could have heated the pie up more.

I didn't complain to their management - just wanted to get the hell out of there.

I was at this hotel for business due to close location. Room was nice and clean although bathroom cubicle small. When shower hot water is turned on makes a high pitched squeal which is rather infuriating. Bed was comfortable and TV adequate. Was handy to have ironing board to use. Buffet breakfasts are standard and sufficient. A little noisy due to large road directly outside
