I recently stayed at the Ibis Budget in Derby with some friends after a trip to nearby Alton Towers.
We got a great deal on two double rooms and paid just £20 per room so it was a bargain!
Having spent this little we didn't expect much but were pleasantly surprised. The receptionists were really helpful and friendly, the room was really clean and modern, the blinds blacked out the majority of light, and the windows were thick enough that we weren't disturbed by the road noise at all.
I've read some reviews about then sizes of rooms, but it's perfectly adequate with a shower cubicle and sink in the room, and separate toilet (although the latter is a little small). The TV had around 10 channels so was fine for us.
In the evening we drove to a nearby Indian restaurant (Basmati India) - it's about 5 mins in the car and has welcoming hosts and great food.
We didn't take the breakfast in the hotel as it's only continental, but went across the carpark to the services where there's a couple of places offering full English and a decent cup of tea and coffee.
My only small criticism of the hotel is that they ran out of spare pillows and only provide one per person so you should ask for spares as soon as you check in to avoid disappointment.
All in all though, it was a fantastic little place for the price and perfect for somewhere to get your head down!
