“BUDGET HOTEL BUT VERY GOOD”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

I stopped at the Ibis Coventry South for 1 night. The room was clean, the customer service very good and the rooms very spacious. The only issues that i personaaly had was that i booked a double and it was 2 singles pushed together so could only really sleep on the one side otherwise falling in between and the heater in the room packed up working. But i stress i was very happy with my stay and would return. For £40 a night it was satisfactory. If you want more then pay more, it is very clearly stated as a budget hotel. £7.50 for breakfast, which was very nice with alot of choice.
Would highly recommend this hotel but if want the fancy airy stuff it wont be for you.

Clean, tidy and efficient, good value for the £35 I paid. Free car park.
The location isn't too wonderful tucked away behind a business park. 25min walk from the city or about the same by bus as it's walk/bus/walk, taxi about £7.

You will need a car, as it is outside Coventry, but between 5-10 minutes drive (according to the traffic) from the centre of Coventry itself.
Clean room and very friendly and helpful staff.
Very close to Warwick, so recommended if you wish to visit Warwick and its castle.

The rooms are fairly well kept except the plumbing in one of the rooms I stayed in. The staff do their utmost to help.

The menu despite being revamped leaves a lot to be desired. The food is inconsistent and is poorly thought out in terms of portion size. I had a beef roast dinner on one day which was overcooked and so dry it looked like burnt Biltong.

The breakfast is good, however the sausage quality changes often and the scrambled egg can be often off putting.

The staff were very friendly and helpful although on check in and check out I was asked how I was going to pay. I had prepaid for the nights stay but they didnt seem aware of this. They checked on check in and confirmed yes that was fine but on check out they tried to charge me! Room was noisy as it was by stairwell and people walk right in front of your bedroom window talking. Bed was uncomfortable having a lump right in the middle of it.
Very difficult to locate as sat nav takes you to the back of the hotel where there is no vehicle access.

we needed to be in Coventry on and off over a period of time, so six nights were spent here over a period of three weeks, service, check in, check out was all impecable, rooms were basic but clean, better than travelodge, you get what you pay for

however breakfast was poor and expensive, we negotiated free breakfasts for two nights, if you do not ask, you do not get!!

I tend to stay here whenever I visit the Jaguar Whitley site as its basically a 10 min walk from the site and has a car park where you can leave your car and go for a meeting at Jag and come back.

For 35 quid a night, the room was clean, the staff very helpful and professional and I couldn't fault the rooms for the money. Ok its not the ritz but for the convenience its great. Breakfast v good as well with a good choice of continental or cooked.

Rooms are like a motel set up but I don't have a problem with this.
