4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

My first room had very noisy air conditioning. I was moved promptly and helpfully to a new quieter room. The staff were happy to assist with my many questions. The dinner was good but rather expensive.

The hotel is central in Hamilton which is a plus. The foods good and the place is clean and friendly. Great views of the river and close to the casino. Parking presents no problem and the soundproofing of the building is excellent as we experienced no disturbance at all.

The Ibis chain is the 3 star budget little sister to the Novotel chain. The Tainui Ibis in Hamilton is an outstanding hotel if you keep it in context and don't compare it to the more expensive hotels.
What stands out is the service ethic of the staff,their friendly manner and the way they treat customers and go out of their way to help you.
We had a pizza and antipasto platter for lunch on the sun dressed deck. Both dishes were superb,very generous size and inexpensive at about $17 each
The king size bed was v comfortable
The only problem is that there is no parking so you have to pay $20 for valet parking but that is v common with most city hotels
