Rooms are tidy and functional. I stayed two nights & it would have been nice for bins to have been emptied and tea/coffee replaced after first night. No bathmat. Rooms uncomfortably hot - air-conditioning not working correctly or something but no windows to open make for an uncomfortable nights sleep. However, good central location, close to wide range of good... More

Travelling from Auckland we were visiting friends for the evening and wanted to stay somewhere close by. We weren't disappointed with our choice of hotel.

Maybe we were spoilt by out previous nights stay at Crown Plaza Auckland but when we entered our room at the Ibis we felt "claustrophobic" - the room was tiny! The beds were very small to! The bathroom was not much better - just enough room to turn around in the shower! Reception staff unfriendly and disinterested. The only saving... More

We have stayed at the Ibis Hamilton on a few occasions and continue to find it a pleasant place to stay and always good value for money. The rooms are adequate for short stays, clean and have all the amenities one would expect.

Loved everything about my stay here. The beds were very comfortable and clean. The bathroom small but certainly not cramped. Reception and dining room staff were genuinely friendly, helpful and interested in us - certainly didn't feel as if they were going through the motion or just doing a job, The food was delicious and I loved the Mango sorbet...

I stayed at the IBIS Hamilton Tainui twice in a week. The first room was average overlooking an adjoining carpark and the second a nice room overlooking the river. The second room was looking a bit tired with tears starting to show in the fabric within the room. I have stayed at other hotels in Hamilton and they now have... More

Stayed for one night - we were happy with the quick service we received and the room itself. It also had a lovely view of the river which was nice. The bed was comfy, and it was great having the black out blinds so you could sleep in. The bathroom was quite small, and the doors need to be more... More

Located in Hamilton city made it easy to get to a surprising number of very good restaurants in Hamilton. Bathroom had been recently renovated and new looking bed but carpet had some loose threads. No free wifi was a real let down at this hotel.

I've stayed here three times and have found the rooms to be consistently clean and comfortable. The staff at reception were really helpful this time, quickly changing us to another room when we found out that the heater wasn't working. I'd definitely recommend it for comfort, service, price and location.
