The Queen Room
My double room was bright and colorful.
With a modern touch and a fun design, my room was clean and cozy. Since the hotel was quiet, I easily spent the day relaxing in my room.
My room had a flatscreen TV and a small desk that you could use while sitting on the bed.
The refreshment trolley, which also doubled as a nightstand offered complementary water, coffee, tea, and an electric kettle. Two thumbs up for hooking guests up with more free stuff.
The walk in shower was another plus.
In terms of Wi-Fi, the Internet was fast and I had no connectivity issues during my stay.

When guests reuse their towels, the hotel uses those savings made on water and energy to plant trees throughout the UK. According to ibis, one tree is planted every minute.

Serving a variety of international cuisine, I ordered vegetarian samosas as an appetizer and a mixed leaf salad. My bill came out to £ 15 not including tip.
