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.

Compact clean rooms, comfy beds and heaps of free parking. So close to town so easy to walk everywhere from here, including being super close to Eat St. Staff pleasant and check-in easy. Didn't use food services so cannot comment but restaurant/bar area seemed nice enough. Super value for money. Would stay again.

A fantastic location next to the main street. Very functional rooms with comfy bed and excellent shower. The staff were very friendly and helpful, as good as any 5 star hotel we have stayed in. Also really kid friendly.

My family were accomodated well at Ibis Rotorua. The rooms were great, and we were upgraded so that our family could be side by side with an interconnecting room. Thoughtful gesture and excellent time.

Ibis Rotorua is a no-frills hotel located close to the Rotorua Lake. There are no porters to help with the luggage, but they do have trolleys one can use, and that isn't such a bad thing. The breakfast is pretty good. The best part though is that you get a view of the lake from the room, which is definitely... More

Everything excellent except evening dining. Waited over an hour for our dinners & only just acceptable. 2 out of the 5 meals were cold. Continental breakfast fine but had to ask for refills in several containers.

Room came with double beds and very spacious. Front desk staff were really helpful in providing information on tours and sightseeing around Rotorua. Check in was fast within 5 mins. You can park your car at the back, if not available there are plenty of free parking at the road in front of the hotel. Breakfast is recommended as they... More
