Stayed in many hotel in Rotorua, and Ibis had smallest room in all. Hotel is at city center near to eat street and lake, at premium location to roam around without car. Small room, okay service and cleanliness and basic breakfast, nothing specific to mention about hotel than its location.

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst in Rotorua. This accommodation is in need of a good facelift and is very outdated. Our bed and pillows were extremely uncomfortable which made a good nights sleep almost impossible. On a good note I can say it was at least clean and the staff were very friendly.

We were there in the third week of September. Room was average however the air condition was faulty and it was like a sauna in the room even though it was cold outside. Called the front desk but was told that no maintenance staff on duty and had to wait until morning? In the end a nice young man from... More

Our room was clean but air conditioning didn't seem to be working. It was a hot, stuffy night even though it was cold outside. But what really will stick in in our memories forever is the disgusting sulphur smell that come poring through the air-von early in the morning. We could get out quick enough. Not even a shower! Not... More

Rooms are amazing, beds are comfortable, staff are friendly, breakfast is fabulous. It's right in town, and near all the night life, easyy to get to places, most rooms come with two double beds. Clean, ask for a room with a view of the lake.

The staff is courteous and friendly, the rooms are clean and adequate. This hotel supplies your basic needs in a comfortable manner. The location is perfect, a short walk to eat street with lots of great restaurants, an even shorter walk to the lake. They don't have a gym or pool but you can use the neighboring hotel they are...

The hotel is located on the main road but a little away from the city center. The staff even though very limited are very pleasant and helpful. The room is very basic but clean and comfortable. The breakfast is passable mainly continental. The other meals at the hotel are very limited. It would be better to go to other restaurants.

Stayed in twin share rooms as part of large group. Criminally expensive wi fi, and the tvs didn't really work, but the staff were friendly and I expect it was well priced . Good location, so I would recommend if your standards aren't too high!
