“Budget Ibis Salford Quays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

Stayed for 2 nights as a solo traveller. Immaculately clean. Breakfast was pretty good. 2 minute walk to Salford quays tram station which is 4 stops away from Piccadilly costing £2.80 for the journey.couple of restaurants two mins away. Morrisons 5 mins up the road and two min walk to the quays which is a lovely place to sit and chill with swans and fish and seats all around. Only two small critisisms......no kettle in room but you can buy token for machine any time of day or night for £1.40 and the long mirror wasn't close enough to the plug sockets. After leaving a do not disturb sign on door the cleaning staff kindly left me fresh towels, loo rolls and soap etc outside the door so that was a bonus

Room Tip: I was on third floor on side where trams pass. No noise problem when window is closed and air con is...

I have recently just stayed here for 2 weeks!
Can't complain really the room was clean, and cleaned everyday all but one time which staff at reception were apologetic about.
I would however have liked a kettle and extension plug in my room - staying here for 2 weeks with the plug a long way from the mirror and no kettle was a slight annoyance for me! The water is very chlorinated from the tap so best to have some bottled water from the Tesco or Morrisons up the street!
Tv had free view channels, rooms are relatively quiet considering I was next to the tram and dual carriageway! Shower brilliant!
Bed not comfy for a long stay but would be ok for a short stay!
Black out blinds very useful!
Location for me was ideal as I work at Media City! And right near the Salford Quays tram stop which is just a short ride from the city centre!

Dear Gemma B,

Many thanks for posting your review in Tripadvisor.

I am pleased that you overall enjoyed your stay at the hotel and I will share your comments with my team.

ibis Budget are hotels that provide the strictly essentials and are designed for short term - value for money - stays. Should you require enhanced comfort for future stays at any location, I can recommend our sister hotels: ibis or ibis Styles.

Kind Regards,

Jordi Pena

If you want 5 star then this isn't for you.....BUT.... if you want a comfortable night stay on a budget rate, then look no further.

The hotel is located opposite the Salford Quay's tram stop, and only a 10 minute tram ride from the city centre. When you take into consideration the prices to stay in the centre, there's no contest if you aren't wanting to spend a fortune. The hotel is basic, but clean. A car park on site which when we've stayed a few times, we've never had a problem getting parked.

There is a pub by the tram stop and a Frankie and Benny's nearby. There is also a Tesco express a couple of minutes walk away too.

Would recommend for anyone visiting Manchester, especially Old Trafford as this is walking distance from the hotel.

Excellent room, price is very good and nearby tram.
Nearby restaurants and extra Tesco and supermarket.
This is my second time to stay in this hotel, service is the same.
I get a quiet room away from any noise or distraction.

Stayed here for two nights in June. Satisfied with the quality of everything but it does peeve a little when I paid £38 and £34 and it is advertised at the door with rooms at £28. Car parking is not bad at £3 per day but get there early as it fills up quite quickly and outside it is £5 per 24 hours. The machine outside was covered by high sided vehicles or else I would have parked in the park opposite. Couldn't find the machine so parked on the road and got a ticket £100 or £60 if paid within 14 days.

Room Tip: Most rooms appear the same so all OK. Would suggest that those on the side of the tram track could b...

Dear Tonjie,

Many thanks for taking the time to write a positive review in Tripadvisor.

Please kindly note that the £28 rate advertised in the totem at the entrance at the hotel is purely indicative and it clearly states "rates from". Hotel standard rates fluctuate from £28 to £140 per night based on activity and events calendar.

I am sorry to hear that you've got a parking ticket for parking on the street behind the hotel. I would like to clarify - for the benefit of other readers - that should our car park be full, we strongly recommend guests to park on the pay and display opposite the hotel at the corresponding tariff.

Kind Regards,

Jordi Pena
