Good afternoon Glenys, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with feedback regarding your recent stay with Ibis Budget Canberra - we greatly appreciate it. While we are glad to hear there were some good positives for your stay, we do apologise that your stay did not quite meet expectations. We acknowledge that you had some issues with the smell from the bathroom (we have since contacted our plumber who has since fixed the problem) and are very sorry that this has impacted your stay. With regards to the blankets, we do appreciate your feedback - we wash the blankets after every use but are sorry that you found them a bit yuck. I'll have a chat with the housekeeping team to see how we can improve this. Thank you again for your feedback and we do hope that you will come and stay with us next time you are in Canberra so we can give you the very best that Ibis Budget Canberra has to offer! Kind regards,
