Thoroughly enjoyed my stay, even though it was only overnight. The staff were all friendly and helpful, from front desk, housekeeping and breakfast staff. The room was very clean and spacious, with a great view over the lake. The hotel is an easy walk to lake, gardens and shops as well as other places of interest. The superb breakfast was... More

This was a typical chain hotel. The front staff was nice, the room was okay. Pros: great location, easily access the town center, restaurants, lakefront, and main roads in and out of town. Free parking, is limited under the hotel, but there is street parking too. My room was a lake view room. Cons: Chain hotel. Lots of tour groups.... More

We have stayed at the Ibis before and this time I was not very impressed, a bond was put on my credit card, where in the past it had never been then on the day of check out - Room service was knocking on the door repetitively from 0930 onwards wanting to clean the room. We had 11am checkout so... More

We planned to stop in Rotorua for one night on our recent 2 week trip through New Zealand, so as a stop-over hotel we chose the Ibis as it was much less expensive than the Novotel right next door. (We tried to stay in Accor hotels since they have free WiFi with their free membership.) The Ibis was as I... More

We booked a lake view room which was amazing. Our room was interconnected with the other which made it convenient to interact and stroll around. The breakfast was ok. The size of the room is very small. Not spacious at all.

The location was perfect. Walking distance from city center and eat street. Also this is 2 mins from Rotorua Lake so luckily we got a lake facing room. Although the rooms are small, they are clean and well maintained. Breakfast had a decently sized spread of porridges, sausages, bacon, fruits, yogurt, noodles, fried rice, breads and beverages. However the same... More

We checked in with no problems. The hotel staff went above expectations and explained the amenities available. There was access to the sister property Novotel next door. They had some geothermal mineral pools which we were able to use. That was really a great surprise which enhanced our stay.
