Good prices, great service, great food. The reservation team with Susan and Gemma are amazing, it makes my job easier having staff with great customer service. Never an issue getting a car park (Ibis Chch has car parks first in first service which is NOT ideal). Always willing to assist us any way possible. Highly recommend staying here. If the...

And I've stayed in quite a few! This Ibis is great. $119 for a big room, much bigger than standard Ibis rooms, overlooking the Waikato river. It's also better equipped than most basic Ibis hotels. Toiletries, a king sized bed, an ironing board, fridge, recycling bin, a big window, and all this in the center of the city, just one...

Good food, mains cost $30 plus, my steak was very tender although the gravy was substandard, it was supposed to have garlic in it and I couldn't taste any. The rack of lamb was rare, my partner loved it, but I would not have been able to eat it as it was far too rare for my liking. We did...

We often stay here when traveling for work and can't fault it. Always is clean and comfortable. Staff are always nice and helpful too. Get good views of the river behind it too! The Restaurant offers decent selection of food and bar is good. Just missing Malibu from their selection of spirits but still, good lil place.

We stayed here on boxing day just for one night. Like previous stays, Ibis has never let us down. Great value for money in a premium location.

The location is fantastic, right on river and lovely for early morning or evening walks. Meals can be eaten outside overlooking the river. Rooms are standard Ibis - fairly small. Decent coffee available just outside main doors and head towards bridge
