What’s happened with the restaurant???

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Rhodesia65 Business - 12/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

Hotel Staff are excellent, but what is going wrong in with the restaurant menu? A new menu is needed ASAP please, Breakfast never any food Out? Why the big cast iron pots? They are very difficult to remove lids and put down, even worse when restaurant is full. I have been asking for years for a proper toaster, where is the new restaurant manager?? Somebody should be asking customers for their opinions and checking on food Adit does his bit when he is on duty, the staff work very hard but need to be guided.

Quick visit

Clean rooms, good facilities in a agreeable part of the city. The bar and the restaurants are nice. The rooms are good in size. They have a valet parking and the hotel is very near bars and restaurants.

The overall stay was fine, room was clean and tidy and the central location was fine. I was disappointed in your Wifi stance of having to pay for wifi in my room. In this day and age I find this an interesting business decision.

Tony Friends - 03/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Staff were extremely professional and helpful, from start to finish. Sorted checkin and bag storage, and delivered bags to room so it was all set when we returned. Same on departure, absolutely seamless. Big room, very tidy and comfortable, if a bit cramped with two beds and a slightly unnecessary small table in addition to the desk. Great shower! Good location, near some excellent food options. Overall, really good.

Decent hotel in Hamilton

Unremarkable. Front desk staff could be more welcoming. Room is ok. Welcome platter and card to recognise my gold status was a nice touch but there was no water in the room.

Kia ora Valerie Its always great to hear back from our return guests and to learn the team looked after you well.So sorry on missing the water in the room. Please come back and stay with us again soon. Have a great week. Sincerely, Niraj Kumar Acting General Manager Novotel and Ibis Tainui Hamilton

We arrived early and checked in and left our luggage. On our return the room was ready & the luggage already in the room. The room was clean, comfortable bed and quality shower.

Bar, rooms good, restaurant average.

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Anonymous Business - 01/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Restaurant is average. Inadequate monitoring of breakfast buffet supplies and food runs out without replenishment. No one offering to cook fresh breakfast eg omelette, fried eggs, etc, which should be normal for a hotel of this standard. Dinner - no market fresh fish like snapper, hapuka etc - just every day salmon. Not enough light fair - choices of salads etc. Meat heavy menu. Also, annoyingly, alhough you offer beef steak, lamb and pork all your sauces are beef steak sauces - no apple sauce which goes with pork or a mint sauce or mint jelly which goes with lamb. Bizarre. I asked for apple sauce to go with my pork but was told that was impossible. It should be on your menu. Apparently your chef wasn't skilled enough to even make any on request - pureeing an apple etc seemed to be beyond his skills to assist a guest. Bedrooms were fine and reception staff friendly. No sign all week of any concierge or someone to help with luggage which was strange, as we had a lot.

Kia ora Derek We appreciate receiving your feedback and certainly some work, training, coaching required here. So sorry that we fell short this time around. I have shared the feedback with the Hotels F&B and Executive Chef who also join in to extend their apologies. Please come back and stay with us again soon. Have a great week. Sincerely, Niraj Kumar Acting General Manager Novotel and Ibis Tainui Hamilton Ngā mihi nui | Warm regards Niraj Kumar- Acting General Manager Novotel and Ibis Tainui Hamilton

Good location and helpful staff

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Geoff M. Couples - 01/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Nice central location by the river unfortunately let down a bit by the building work that are going on although there was surprisingly little noise or disruption for the amount of redeveloped . Our room had a very nice view of the river but some of the fittings were certainly showing signs of wear and tear with considerable staining on the carpet. Staff were friendly and efficient and certainly made for a pleasant stay. The outside terrace area could do with some of the cushions on the seating being cleaned or replaced as the staining on some of the fawn cushion covers doesn’t give a great impression.

Kia ora Geoffrey Its always great to hear back from our Elite Loyalty guests and to learn that your stay was enjoyable. We certainly will look into the balcony area which gets a bit difficult to maintain due to construction dust. Thank you again for sharing and its important for us. Please come back and stay with us again soon. Have a great week. Sincerely, Niraj Kumar Acting General Manager Novotel and Ibis Tainui Hamilton

We always enjoy staying at this hotel. Usually we stay in winter but this time we were able to sit on the deck overlooking the river. Charming.

Kia ora Penny Its always great to hear back from our Elite Loyalty guests and to learn that your stay was enjoyable. That river view, agree is amazing. Please come back and stay with us again soon. Have a great week. Sincerely, Niraj Kumar Acting General Manager Novotel and Ibis Tainui Hamilton

Very accommodating with looking after bags when we arrived early and then took up to room pre checkin. Check out easy - valet parking very reasonable compared to a lot of Auckland hotels

Kia ora Lisa We're so pleased to have had you with us on your return stay and to learn that you enjoyed your stay. Please come and see us again soon. Ngā mihi nui | Warm regards Niraj Kumar- Acting General Manager Novotel and Ibis Tainui Hamilton
