“Excellent for the price - clean and modern”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

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!

Some friends and I stayed here as a one night stop over before going to Alton Towers the next day. It's about a half hour to forty minute drive to the park.
Our rooms were basic but very clean. The only negatives I have was the woman on reception when we checked in. She was busy with something and didn't even acknowledge us. A simple "I'll be right with you" would have been nice.
The other thing was that it was very warm outside so we put the air con on before we went to bed. Woke up in the middle of the night boiling because the air con had switched off. We couldn't get it back on so the rest of the night was very uncomfortable.
Other than that it was fine. It only cost £20 a night so was worth the money.

I cannot fault this hotel in any way. I had been on a leisure trip with loads of travelling and uncomfortable campsites and was finishing with a hotel before I took the long drive home. I had chosen this one as it was at the junction of my roads and was cheap. I have to say I cannot believe how cheap it was now I have stayed there as it really was very well serviced and the 24 hour staff were excellent. There is a restaurant, bar and shops close by and the rooms provide as much as you need if looking for a bed, shower and tele. It was clean and warm. The only reason the hotel doesn't get top marks is because I thought the bed was a bit uncomfortable and the breakfast is pre packed. I went to the cafe across the road for a cooked breakfast.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away fro the main road as its very busy and as it was warm I had the window open s...

Very clean and functional in convenient but noisy location saved by air-conditioning.
Selected Ibis hotel as beds are normally superbly comfortable, however my room had a hard mattresses without the usual Ibis soft 'topper'. Maybe this is the difference between a normal Ibis hotel and an Ibis 'Budget' hotel? How silly!
Continental breakfast was simple but adequate except for the slimy tinned ham which was horrid.
