Ibis Rotorua
Ranked #35 of 92 Hotels in Rotorua
Reviewed June 8, 2011

The Ibis Rotorua is in a handy location near the Lake itself and the CBD and backing on to its Accor sister, Novotel, Rotorua. Thestudio rooms, though not lavish, are comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful. Fre carparking, onsite is an advantage and security is a feature. Meals in the restaurant are good value. Overall a very pleasant experience.

Although the room was small it was very comfortbale and had everything needed for an overnight stay. A good bed and nice pillows (often hotel pillows are so awful) and it was suprisingly quiet. Very cheerful reception staff.
For a lower budget hotel, I think it is excellent value for money.

Room was clean and spacious with two double beds. Very convenient, near to dining and shopping area. However, customer service needs to be improve. Reception staff unfriendly and unhelpful. Would be better if the internet was free of charge though we were given 15mins free usage.
