The Ibis is a modern hotel and is well placed for access to public transport.
Transport & Parking
For me, access to public transport was important as a visually impaired person. Frequent buses pass by the front door to all parts of the city. There are bus stops on both sides of the road and traffic lights make for a safe road crossing.
Access in and around the building: The building has a prominent entrance. The reception was bright and light with good signage. There was a hearing loop which was indicated by a prominent sign. The lift had good contrasting controls and braille buttons. The doors to the bedrooms had good signage. Access in the accessible bedrooms and bathrooms: The accessible bedrooms were bright and spacious. The bathrooms were well lit. The rooms had a large button telephone. The fire alarms in the rooms had the usual audio sounder but were also equipped with flashing lights. Vibrating alters for pillow were also available for hearing impaired guests. Access in the dining area: The dining area was large and well laid out. Access to other facilities: The hotel also had a bar and lounge area.
There was an accessible toilet near to the bar area. Well signposted, brightly lit and spacious.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
