We had read reviews before booking this hotel that it was clean but small. As we were only going to be there for 2 days we booked it for the price as it was rather reasonable. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised as rooms were bigger than i thought and clean. It is in the middle of town with... More

Inspiring location - right by the Waikato River. Rooms are presentable. Friendly staff in the comfortable restaurant. Food is fine. Valet parking works well. Really close to downtown Hamilton. Reasonably priced. Being a member of the Accor Club helped. Got 24 hour WiFi access free.

This is my choice of stay when in Hamilton for ease of finding it and overall amenities of the site and the river view. Stayed here recently for work and again was very impressed with the service, especially in the restaurant with Jasmine and her associate. Food as always very tasty and the breakfast selection very wide ranging also. Parking... More

This hotel is good value for money, clean, lovely cafe and the staff were outstanding. We were made to feel welcome by all. It is that sort of service that will bring us back.

Just had a great 2 night stay. Fantastic value for money, room was small but pleasant with everything we needed. Next time I'll remember to ask for a room overlooking the river. Amazing food choices as part of the buffet breakfast which we included in our room rate. We signed up to the loyalty program me and got free wifi... More

This is a typical IBIS hotel with typical IBIS service. Comfy beds, nonstop laundry for guest use (finally!) and good location for just 40€/night made our stay a nice stop before heading further north. Just be prepared to pay for EVERYTHING - breakfast costs the same as in a 5* Auckland hotel, parking can cost ju almost the same amount... More

Centrally located, however rooms are rather average and bathroom is small. $154 per night (including buffet breakfast) was reasonable but once Wifi $16, and parking $20 were added the room becomes expensive. Wifi was slow, and we received faster upload/downloads from hotels offering free wifi. Parking is free however for hybrid cars. A walk-in breakfast costs $24.99. The hot food... More

Excellent service from arrival through to check-out including car valet service. Check-in at reception was quick and efficient due to 'On-Line' Check-in facility. Meals at Dinner and breakfast were very good and service was tops. Room was clean, comfortable and adequate for our visit.

Lovely room with river views. Large, comfortable bed. Highly professional and friendly staff at reception. For some reason (not the hotel's fault) it took a while to remove the $100 pre-authorisation on my card and the staff were fantastic at diligently helping me with this, even after I returned to Australia. Very good WiFi - it is technically not free... More

The Ibis Tainui in Hamilton is the best Ibis hotel we have stayed in. The service is very friendly and helpful. It is located beside the Waikato river, and if you can get a river facing room, you will be delighted. Ibis restaurants can be very basic. We had just been at Ibis Rotorua, and the restaurant there was very... More
