Reviewed September 12, 2012

I stayed on business for one night an the price was right so was ok. I know ibis rooms are small so was expected. Very noisy for a Wednesday night,. Location is close to town. Shower door was caked in lime , maybe that was because of the sulphur in the water.

Had a great 5day stay, the hotel staff were amazing. The WiFi although didn't reach our room but they have two computers by reception with free internet. No Spa or Pool facilities was also another downer because most spa places charged 40+ dollars and private spa places charged 18dollars per half hour!

We stayed here while travelling with family from Brisbane and although the outlook from the window (which you cant open) was very panoramic, I personally felt very claustrophobic in the small rooms with no fresh air. They very much cater for tour groups with 2 double beds in the room we were staying. It was very clean though and also very central to restaurants.

Thanks for your review. It is great that you have highlighted the cleanliness of the room and its central location. We do have rooms with just a single King bed as well as rooms with two beds. I can only suggest in future making enquiries at the time of reservation as to the availability of a King Room. These rooms do have more space with only the one bed occupying.

Lovely staff they were very helpful when we arrived, the rooms were nice and clean and the location was great close to everything in Rotorua! They also had free parking which was close we loved that and they had laundry facilities so you could do your own washing!! I didn't mind because i think the laundry service at hotels in general are over priced. Anyway definetly recommend(:
