I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel in central Leeds as I was over there for a friend's wedding and didn't fancy rushing for the last train. Usually I'd stay at a Travelodge if I was on a budget, but their prices seem to have increased in inverse proportion to their quality!
The Ibis, on the other hand, was an absolute bargain at just over £40 for the night. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the station, and within easy walking distance of the city centre. The staff are friendly, and check-in only takes a matter of minutes.
I didn't try any of the food, but the restaurant/bar area looked clean and well-stocked. The room is large and very clean, although it was incredibly warm for some reason! The bed is very comfy and gave me an excellent night's sleep. Some people may also find the location a bit off-putting, as it's right next to the ring-road for the motorway, so some traffic noise is inevitable.
Overall though, the Ibis is highly recommended, and it really doesn't feel like a budget chain at all.
