The question is not whether this is a nice hotel or not, as it is not.

The question is what should you expect for £28 for a night? You could argue that if that gave you a clean bed, hot shower and windows which shut normally then it is good value. And you would then overlook the horrendous location (on top of the M4 almost, with views of boarded up houses down some of the bleakest streets in the UK), the disgusting carpets and the smell in the corridor.

The staff may be friendly but you should only stay here if you are desperate or if you need to be nearby. And then if its £28 you could say it is good value. But if you can afford say £40 or £50 then I'd strongly recommend staying elsewhere.

Great value room for 3 adults just needing a bed for one night. Good location for M4 access. Comfortable double bed with single bunk above. En suite shower and separate toilet all acceptably clean. Attentive and welcoming staff.

When paying a price that would be consistent with camping, you may expect poor service and a terrible night. Instead this hotel provides exceptional value. It's not the Ritz, but i was welcomed by the receptionist and my key card was ready. The room was clean and comfortable and the location is pole position for the M4. Superb double glazing also means that you don't hear the traffic. Well done Ibis.
