1 stayed on 3 separate nights during my travels in April. It does exactly what it says on the tin - and is excellent value for the location. As others have reported, the rooms are small and basic, but above everything else are clean. The bed linen is of a higher quality than that expected of a budget hotel. The bathroom is small but functional - similar to a basic cruise ship !

I parked my car there for 5 days, which was chargeable, but much better value than the other off airport operators.

With only light baggage it is possible to walk to the airport, which has 30 mins per 24 hours free Wifi, unlike the hotel which charges.

The non connected restaurant downstairs is good and has a very comfortable lounge area with sofas if you don't mind watching sports TV. Just across the road is a supermarket and a cafe.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as far away as possible from the lifts, the bell is much too loud and may not help li...

We stayed recently for two nights to see family members off at the airport. It is clean and relatively cheap by airport standards, but not cheap! A few things to be aware of:
- The rooms/bathrooms are small - with little space to sort out luggage. No shampoo and tiny soaps.
- There is little in the way of service - we only ever observed one staff member at the front desk and they were worked off their feet dealing with guests checking in and out. We couldn't get another pillow - too busy.
- It is noisy - guests coming and going all hours with plumbing noisy, lifts chiming, talking etc.
- If you stay more than one day, there is no servicing of your room (or a reduced rate for the second day)!
- There is good free car parking, and a reasonable pub in the building.

So, if you need a place to rest for a few hours, reasonably close to the airport, it works. Anything more, then there are better options a little further away but that offer free transport to the terminals.

I had a great night's sleep here, chosen because of my late flight into Auckland and early start the next day. Well sound proofed, clean rooms, comfy beds, and a great shower- only thing I could've asked for was a kettle in the room- would be great for late night travellers being able to make a cuppa in their own room :-)

Better signage and directions regarding Ibis' complementary shuttle to/from the terminals would be great- it was annoying to have to find out where from airport staff- Ibis needs to have good signage in the airport building itself...

Other than that, decent value, comfy, clean, friendly.

Acceptable as a place to sleep before a very early morning flight. Not likely to stay in room very long as requires one person to hop on to bed for other person to pass comfortably. I do wish I had checked out other accomodation as all are close enough to the airport to walk and include shuttles. Restaurant next door was awesome.

We stayed at the Ibis for the second time as we found it so good the first time. Again we found it very clean, the reception was friendly and helpful, while I was there I saw the attendant helpfully lift many heavy bags behind the desk for a group that had a flight later in the day after checkout. The rooms are small but very well laid out, the bathroom is clean and functional, the beds are as comfortable as the ad portrays them to be. Had a late arrival and needed somewhere close to the airport to crash, the ibis is just minutes from the terminal. Plenty of parking and modern new facilities. Highly recommended for a budget convenient hotel.

Convenient and affordable accommodation for when all you need is somewhere to sleep for a few hours. Frequent courtesy bus to and from the airport, only fault was that clearer directions could have been provided as to where this bus goes from when I phoned a staff member, we missed one bus from the airport as the instructions given turned out to be incomplete, a bit inconvenient at 1am after a long journey.

Booked a family room which would have been fine if I was Tom Thumb.... I mean come on guys, you can't call it a family room simply because you have shoe horned a set of bunk beds in?? With one suitcase open on the floor the room had NO floors space left. Luckily it wasnt expensive and we were only there for one night. If you are looking for a hotel very close to the terminal to simply crash out until the un comes up, then it's a good place, clean and peaceful. If you have two kids however, GET TWO ROOMS...
