I have stayed here several times and never been let down. Very Comfortable Kingsize bed with view overlooking the river. Sure the room is not large but everything you need for a nights stop over.
We had friends join us for a meal, the food was fabulous.
Staff are very friendly and efficient.
Can't fault this Hotel at all. BEST value Hotel = service/location etc
Will stay again as also like the location.

Dear corokiwi,

It is always a pleasure receiving such amazing feedback from returning guests. It is great news that you enjoyed the new king size bed, as we have started to replace on the beds within the hotel. The chef was also very happy with your comments about the food being fabulous.

Thank you again for sharing your comments, it is really appreciated.

Sincerely,

Daniel McKeown

Had a good experience here. Stayed several nights and the staff were really pleasant and helpful. I didn't mind the $20 valet parking fee, as it was so convenient. Car was waiting when I needed it. Yummy food and the room was very clean with a great view of the river. New bathroom was really nice. Its not the Ritz but it is a great option for a good bed for the night.

Very handy to everything in Hamiton. We stopped for the night on our way to the Waitomo Caves. Rooms were clean and comfortable if a little old fashioned. The staff were courteous and helpful. The only gripe was the $20 valet parking.

Room Tip: Rooms on 4th floor overlooking the river are best

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
