I had a pleasant check in on Friday afternoon and after reading other comments on here I asked for a high floor to avoid excessive noise from other rooms. The room I was given was on the top floor with a nice outlook over Hamilton. The room (774) had all the amenities I expected. It was clean and comfortable. I...

Ibis hotel is very centrally situated by the Waikato river with pleasant view of the water. Not the easiest of hotels to find and valet parking is the best option as the frontage is not huge. Car parks nearby if you do not wish to pay $20 per night for the parking, however the easiest option by far. I stayed...

Really helpful and friendly easy going staff. Good location etc. Unfortunately there was a school hockey team staying. As kids are, they are not quiet, and while asking them to tone it down a few times, and they did for a while, realistically the hotel should plan much more carefully which floors they put guests vs schools in these situations....

Dear Colin Thank you for your review I am pleased that you enjoyed your visit and apologise that you were disturbed by other guests. During School Holidays we often get traveling school sports teams and could have allocated these rooms better to minimise distribution to others. I have reminded the team to be more mindful in the future. Kind regards...

What a different experience this time after an unimpressive stay around a year ago. This time the room was on the top floor. The room seamed bigger but was probably just laid out different. The bed was very comfortable and large. The TV appeared bigger than last time but is still mounted in a stupid and uncomfortable place (In a...

I stayed at the Ibis for one night only and just needed a place in the centre to quickly eat and drink something and then take off the next morning. The Ibis is well placed right in the heart of the city. The staff are very friendly. There is parking but it's not free, you have to pay. The room...

They were able to accommodate a late booking. The room was quiet and bed was comfortable. Unfortunately the laundry and quality of pillows wasn't up to hotel standard. The "second" pillow in the wardrobe was of very poor quality and had what looked like a used pillow case. I requested a clean pillow case but received another poor quality pillow...
