Stayed here the weekend of Dec 3-4 and not even an hour into our check in an item goes missing in our room. Checked in at around 12:30 in the afternoon with only a small paper bag from the mall a block away from the hotel. My husband was in a meeting and he had our luggages in the car...

Good service. Room was on the top floor and a reasonable view of the city side. Rooms are clean and comfortable (great bed) and although small they are what you would expect from a Ibis chain. Staff were good - I did have a small issue with power going out in my room (just the tv and power sockets) and...

Everything is wrong in this place. As others have said the reception is one floor up so when I needed to have my car parked, I had to go up to reception, then go back down, then go back up. The valet then asked "what time would you like your car back in the morning?" God knows where it is...

The room was ideal with superb river views and a black out blind for a peaceful nights sleep. The king bed was comfortable. The staff were friendly and efficient. I recommend the breakfast buffet, a large and delicious selection of hot and cold food. It was no problem to order poached eggs. Happy hour at 5 pm a bonus.

The feeling of welcome i get there is fabulous. The rooms are basic but clean and larger than ibis rooms typically are. The restaurant is basic but...

If you've stayed in one Ibis hotel in NZ you've stayed in them all. Small boxlike rooms that have a tiny little bathroom in the corner and usually stuffy due to no open windows and an ac unit that seems to merely circulate the air. In that respect Ibis Hamilton Tainui was the same. What did make it vastly better...

Right on the river and convenient to the sights, I spent one night here with no problems, bed was comfortable and the room had everything I needed. Would recommend for anyone visiting Hamilton or other surrounding area.
