The room was ideal with superb river views and a black out blind for a peaceful nights sleep. The king bed was comfortable. The staff were friendly and efficient. I recommend the breakfast buffet, a large and delicious selection of hot and cold food. It was no problem to order poached eggs. Happy hour at 5 pm a bonus.

If you've stayed in one Ibis hotel in NZ you've stayed in them all. Small boxlike rooms that have a tiny little bathroom in the corner and usually stuffy due to no open windows and an ac unit that seems to merely circulate the air. In that respect Ibis Hamilton Tainui was the same. What did make it vastly better... More

Right on the river and convenient to the sights, I spent one night here with no problems, bed was comfortable and the room had everything I needed. Would recommend for anyone visiting Hamilton or other surrounding area.

Stayed for just 1 night in June 2016 while touring. Lovely river view room with all the facilities needed. Very comfortable Ibis bed as expected. Did not try the hotel restaurant or bar, but looked OK. Parking was a short walk away at the casino complex. Next door to the sister Novotel, which looked much more upmarket.
