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....

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...

I have stayed here twice in the last couple of weeks as it is accessible to where I'm working, reasonably cost effective, clean and tidy. Finding the location for the first time visitor is slightly challenging as it sits off a side street but the location is right but the river and would be very pleasant in the summer. The...

The location of the hotel was ideal. It was close to all possible amenities - close to a mall/ restaurants/ pubs/Atm-banks and convenience stores . The hotel was located close to a train track (non busy) and the Waikato river behind. Hotel has a good choice for breakfast and offers parking for your car (NZD20/daily). The rooms were reasonably big....

On the banks of the Waikato river with glorious views and absolutely stunning walks starting at the hotel. We wonder how the other hotels do any business - the location and the friendly staff make this place a must return place.

Always enjoy staying at the Novotel Ibis in Hamilton, great service and friendly staff, good location in the city. Lovely outlook over the river. Continous meals all day so very convenient for having something to eat later in the evening: eg: after the rugby.

Very tidy property and quite and handy to local eateries. Most certainly can walk to the local eateries so good for those who don't want to drive too far. The room we had had a view and this was pleasant. We had a complimentary drink at the bar and again the view was great and it was very relaxing
