Can’t believe the treatment we had at this Ibis Hotel. To our amazement, when we opened the door to the room we found the maid had fashioned from the white room towels two swans kissing. These swans were surrounded by scattering red rose petals while resting on a tray of chocolates.

Only kidding. Room was square, basic but clean. No noise, quiet and the staff were ace. Triple room with a bunk over double. Bunk bed not made which is a bit of a duffer but I can live with it.

Room Tip: Near tram for access to Meadowhall or City Centre.

We always try to book this hotel if we are going to the Arena as it is literally across the carpark. It is cheap to stay as it is a budget hotel, sadly this means there is no kettle in the room but you can purchase a hot drink from reception for £1.50 and they are open 24 hours. They also have a stock of cold food, cold drinks, pot noodles, cakes, alcoholic drinks and they do hot pizza too. The rooms are good in size and have a separate toilet room and shower.

Staff very friendly and welcoming.

Car park has a charge of £4 per 24 hours.

Only problem i encountered was i was given a toom on the ground floor which i didnt like as we had to keep our blind shut as people were walking past outside and we also felt we couldnt leave things on show when we went out for the evening. I was however told that had the hotel not been fully booked that night, i could have changed room so no real problem.

we stayed here as it was close to the octagon where we was going to see Russell Kane, for £25 you get what you pay for, literally a bed, shower, toilet, very basic, pillows are so flat i had to fold it in half. but in saying that the staff were helpful and friendly and the room was clean. for the price and location we would probably stay again..and bring our own pillows! ha

Firstly let me say I don't really feel entitled to be negative because the price I paid was so cheap I didn't expect too much...the bed was ok - not the most comfortable but there are 2 to choose from as there is a bunk bed option for a 3rd person to sleep on! Shower opens out into the room so if your a bit body conscious with your fellow guests have your towel ready. And It is Nice that there is 24hr reception and food/drinks available.

Big Negatives...The room was at the back of the property overlooking the car park and I thought it would be quiet but I was very wrong...lorries reversing people talking by their cars and general traffic noise woke me up several times. And the rooms above also woke me up with their footsteps...very noisy hotel with not much sleep to be had. HOWEVER for the price I paid I would stay here again if I needed somewhere to stay.

This hotel is perfect if you're going to a concert at the nearby arena!
Me and two friends stayed here last night to see Busted.
We paid £70 for a double bed plus bunk bed. The room was clean and tidy. However, you only get one paper thin pillow and a paper thin duvet. When we asked reception for a couple of extra pillows, we were told the last ones had been given out. Fair to say I have spent the day complaining of neck ache.
Also there are NO facilities to even make a cup of tea or coffee, no comfy chairs to sit on and you get one bar of soap.

Like I said, perfect for somewhere to lay your head after a gig, if you want back and neck ache for the next couple of days!

Other than pillowgate, I would stay here again just for the ease of how close it is to the arena!

Also be aware, they charge £4 for the car park on top of the charge of the room!

Dear Laura,

thank you very much for spending a minute of your time and let us know about your stay with us. I hope the Busted concert was good! At least that's what everyone is saying! :)

My apologies if you did not find your bed comfortable, Laura. Also, I will make sure we order some more new pillows to have some spare, in case of need.

Again, thank you for your feedback.

Have a good day!
