Quick guide: The Ibis is a modern 2 star hotel with 141 bedrooms over 5 floors. This budget hotel is less than two miles from the airport and offers a basic, clean and comfortable nights stay before or after a flight.
If you have ever stayed in an Ibis, you know what you get. We get lots of praise about the 'value for money' of this hotel and praise because it is 'close to the airport', but you should note that it does not have a restaurant. It is ideal for those who just want a bed for the night and do not want to pay for extras
Expect to pay from £40 room only or from £60 including 8 or 15 days free airport parking (for a double room), depending on the time of year.
