OK.. a 5 night stay at a hotel I have used before: It's a budget hotel, so I guess it's reasonable to anticipate that the rooms may be a bit tired and approaching refurb, which was indeed the case. However, it is not unreasonable to expect slack cleaning, which even though drawn to management's attention after the first night, remained unaltered throughout my stay.
To be more specific... 1) Towel hooks had been fitted, and the plaster dust on the ledge where the floor meets the wall had not been cleaned up, and this remained so during my stay. 2) The ledge by the window had not been dusted for some time, and a short finger wipe produced a goodly heap of dust as shown in the pictures added to this review 3) I had cause to move the comfort unit to access the TV plug only to find a considerable build up of dust and waste paper behind the unit.
I understand from the hotel management - who were the usual courteous and reasonably efficient Ibis staff - that the cleaning of rooms is contracted out: Unfortunately I know not to whom as I would happily name them so their shoddy work is exposed: One hopes that Ibis management takes them to task to make sure the usual high standard of Ibis hotels is resumed.
That apart, as a budget hotel... does what it says on the tin, and the breakfast is of acceptable quality and plentiful for a buffet type arrangement.
