Recent guest reviews

Stayed for 5 nights recently for rugby 7s. Lovely place with friendly & helpful staff (hi Hunny!). Rooms on the small side but great view of the majestic Waikato River. Breakfast was simple but substantial - loved the “make your own” muesli

During our adventure, we needed a much needed rest. This Hotel was perfect. Good value, great location. Restaurants and river walk steps away. Clean rooms, friendly staff. You won’t go wrong with this property.

We drove from Auckland airport directly to Hamilton, stop over for a night. Hotel gave us a river view room, which is very very nice, sun not set until 8:30pm, so we could still enjoy the view after early dinner. We walked to the Hamilton night market which is only 5 mins walk. Also there is Countdown supermarket which is 7mins walk from the hotel. The only bad side is the room is very noisy, wall is thin and air conditioner is noisy.

Excellent little hotel in the heart of Hamilton. No fuss no issues, clean tidy and well priced. You get what you pay for. Breakfast is excellent. Staff are very attentive and highly professional. Definitely stay here again.

City Center location. Great breakfast fare and promotion price , 7th floor room very nice, with good TV Channel coverage. Room style small, but ideal for couples. Gym availability appreciated, all in all a very customer focused Hotel

One night stop pre booked. Excellent price. Extremely friendly and welcoming staff. Clean tidy room with good facilities. Really good breakfast range. Car was returned from parking facilities even before I requested. Quick check out. Well placed within city centre and close to most facilities and other restaurants. Only disappointing feature was lack of free internet facilities.

The breakfast and staff servicing were very good. However, the room and beds were not very comfortable. The snoring sound of the next room did not let me sleep nicely. Overall it was a good value to quality service.

What can you say that hasn't been said before. An Ibis is an Ibis, good branding, you know what to expect. Typical smaller rooms but good quality beds and bedding, everything you need for a hotel stay. Good value for money.

Our second stay here, tucked away but beautifully positioned overlooking the river... Great deck dining, lovely staff and very nice, tidy room. We really like this Ibis in the heart of town . Our room looked over the river with interesting views, sunny, very good king bed. We really enjoyed this Ibis breakfast . It was only an overnighter but great. We would return, excellent value for money.. Remember we are not comparing to a five star Accor hotel but to good value, middle of the road accommodation. In this catergory it's hard to beat.

Our room was clean, beds comfortable. The view of the Waikato river was superb. Thanks for putting us on the 7th floor! We especialy appreciated the friendliness of the staff. Parking was a bit iffy - but that looks like it is a problem in the Hamilton CBD for everyone.
