Had to come in very late to Rotorua and needed accommodation. Went to the entrance to the hotel and was told over the intercom that there were no rooms. Called the Novotel and inquired for rooms there and was told rooms were available in both hotels and transferred me to the Ibis. The same lady answered to say she had... More

I'm sure this hotel had nicer rooms than what we received. We were given a room on ground level overlooking the carpark and pizza hut. The room had a disabled shower that dribbled water out and looked very old and cruddy. After notifying reception, they sent the maintenance man the next day who fixed it. The heater also didn't work... More

Went there last year in August. Room was small but well worth it. We didn't try the breakfast downstairs but my mother really enjoyed the buffet breakfast we had In Novotel (since IBIS and Novotel are under the same company)...so I guess the food from IBIS should be good as well.

I stayed two nights, and although it has enjoyable food available and is centrally located to the lake and restuarants, the pillows were painful, the internet TERRIBLY expensive and slow, and no sky movie, news television channels at all. Not at all impressed with the $22 charge for 24 hours of not particularly decent internet. Not when many other hotels/motels... More

We stayed for two nights, also our family stayed in the next room for the second night. This hotel is excellent (far superior to Little Bourke Ibis in Melbourne, which is fine but doesn't come close), we couldn't fault it. Our room was perfect and they have a lovely restaurant/bar, but what really made our stay was the top-notch staff... More

Stayed at the Ibis Rotorua for one night. Good clean accommodation, friendly service and well located. Has a good bathroom for Ibis rooms - with a proper shower. While the restaurant is good for breakfast, the nearby Novotel restaurant is also good. Will be staying there again.
