“Great one night stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

Stayed just one night. Room was clean and comfortable. Had a good view of the river. Didnt have dinner but we had the breakfast and found it realy good. Food was hot and plenty of it. We would stay here again if in Hamilton. We had car valet parking. Bit of a shambles outside hotel finding somewhere to park to get our baggage out before getting to reception. Minor problem. Found this hotel great value for money.

The hotel is centrally located in the city centre, walking distance to shopping mall and food outlets. Parking is available at a cost (20NZD for the valet parking), but we had a choice that night to park at the casino for 15NZD. The staff is efficient but not a warm welcoming one. When we arrived with the vehicle, we had no idea where to park as all the parking space had been occupied. The staff looked at me, and had no intention of helping me whatsoever. At last, I just park myself at the disable parking and quickly unloaded my luggage, and went to check in. The room is typical Ibis standard, comfortable bed with all the basic amenities. Free Wifi with the Accor membership, stable and fast.

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.

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.

Great location, we had 4 rooms with family there for granddaughters graduation. .Nothing seemed outstanding yet it all flowed. rooms were clean if a little shoeboxy, comfy bed, good range of beverage in the bar, food in the restaurant tasty if ordinary.Good value for the money.
Yes, we would stay again

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