Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great location, friendly staff, comfortable bed. Fresh and new feeling to the hotel - it wasn't outdated. Parking was easy with valet parking. The bathrooms were very plain (almost felt like a prison cell) with white walls and very basic furnishing. But it was practical.

another good stay mostly. however again they did not charge my e car, even though as i checked in they asked "would you like car charged?" I think the ibis has very old e car chargers that do not fit my car. however there is a 3 pin plug they could use overnight and aside from that if the customer needs the car charged and you cant do it. the least you can do is tell the customer we cant charge the car, so they dont get an awful shock when they get in the car!

The room is the size of a dorm room (except no closet). We had a king bed overlooking the river (small window). Luckily we travel light (from the US). So only carry on bags. No room for luggage. The room was clean and the bed comfortably. The hotel is close to a lot of restaurants and shopping. It’s good for one night

This is a very nice Ibis hotel. It is in the cbd adjacent to the river. It's sister hotel Novotel is next door. We only stayed one night, were upgraded to a river view room on the 7th floor. I liked the recent refurbishments which reflected the maori (indigenous) heritage of the area and there were lots of nice touches in the decor. We slept well on comfy and firm beds. Our accor gold status was recognised at checkin. We arrived in in the evening and parked on the street which was free after 6pm. Noted other reviewers comments on the valet parking charges which we didn't require. The first two hours are free during the day. See parking meter photo for details. We enjoyed a fabulous meal in the Ibis restaurant, using our Accorplus discount. The food was excellently prepared and well above the standard expected at Ibis properties. The breakfast was included in our rate and very nice. I would stay again if visiting Hamilton. NZ is not a cheap place to visit now post covid so I thought this property represented reasonable value for the room rate.

Had my husbands 60th birthday meal here along - the food and table decorations were superb. The staff were fantastic and extremely helpful. The buffet breakfast the next morning was excellent - too many choices. Would highly recommend a social event here.

Would totally recommend this hotel. A wonderful hotel with wonderful staff that you can almost hear say welcome home. Laid back and relaxed atmosphere. We had a lovely room with a river view. Everything is clean and well maintained. A very big thank you for a lovely stay and a warm welcome. Food and drinks also awesome.

Stayed here for one night as my partner had heights training in Hamilton the next day. I do recommend advertising it better on your website that you charge $32 for overnight parking as we were told that the casino “down the road” had free parking, We had been parked for 10 minutes but ended up getting charged $8 for trying to park and look for someone to speak with to get help at skyline as the ibis staff just point directly down the road with no instructions. As someone not from Hamilton this was extremely exhausting at 12am. We finally make it back to our room just to be told the person next to us is complaining about how loud we shut the door. As a staff member of Accor this did not give me the heartist feeling of being at any other and actually made me feel quiet uncomfortable. One of the face towels in our bathroom seemed like it was already used because it was wet. Food rubbish under the bed. On a good note the house keeping lady and maintenance crew are extremely friendly and welcoming and I do want to thank the overnight person for finding us a park so late. Slept well just didn’t get enough of it. Disappointed with the stay
