“Great weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

We stayed at the Ibis for Easter weekend and it was good. We booked a connecting room so the two kids had their own room and we opened the door up between us. Rooms are small and very basic but for $109 and $129 per night we thought it was good value.
We were going to the rugby and the hotel put on complimentary nibbles before the game. They also advised us of the free bus to the game which literally stopped meters from the hotel.
We had dinner there and the burgers were fabulous.
Location was great and we also went to the netball at Claudelands and they provided umbrellas and good directions for the 5 minute walk.

The location is nearby town. few steps to shopping center and public transportation. A good choice if you are on-the-go. Like any other Ibis in New Zealand, i wish they provide free wifi in the room. free WIFI only in lobby with 30mins limit.

Required room for an event in Hamilton. Good clean room.Service was good. No problems would stay again as close to town..Good value for money with breakfast included in deal. Breakfast could have had a better fresh fruit selection but was Ibis not Novotel

The hotel location was fairly simple to find, the parking was made easy with a valet (at a cost) the staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was just the right size and the dinner was simple but affordable and the breakfast was great with lots of variety and healthy alternatives. All in all a very satisfying stay and I will definitely be back when I have business in Hamilton.
