In June 2013 I tayed at Ibis Thornleigh and gave a favourable review of the hotel. In the 6 months since my last stay though, things have slipped (or I didn't notice them last time).
This time I stayed on level 1 (floor level).
The rooms windows open straight out onto the carpark offering little to no privacy.
In addition the hallway to rooms on level 1 smelt strongly of napthalene (moth balls), which made it seem more like a visit to grandmas house than a hotel.
The aircon in my room looked straight out of the 1980s and came with a really strange smell, and the louvres were not adjustable. It was noisy, but was required to be used because the room was so stuffy.
It's a shame I write these comments as my previous stay was much better. I dont know if the rooms on level 1 are due for a renovation, but they desperately need them.
On a more positive note, checking in was a breeze and the staff member was polite and courteous despite my 9pm checkin time. I didn't catch his name though. Thumbs up for Matthew at front desk on the morning of my checkout for the cheery and friendly attitude, and wishing me a good day. :)
All in all, Ibis has taken a downward slide from my last stay. This might be attributed to different rooms though.
