mikw483 Solo travel - TripAdvisor review

An MIQ experience not to be repeated. The room was clean with a huge bed but the shower room was tiny and the food was, with a few exceptions, horrible. The staff were all pleasant but the whole experience was horrible. The window didn't open so I was limited to recycled air and portable air units dotted along the corridor. The irony of this was watching a "freedom" protest parade outside through my non-opening window. The two exercise areas were limited in size and I didn't feel were large enough to be safe or separated sufficienly from others. The hotel did offer a limited snack/drink service but this wasn't great.

Kia ora mikw483. Thank you for your stay with us and providing us with your feedback. We understand isolating in hotel rooms can get challenging and within the Managed isolation framework, we tend to do our best to ensure our guests are looked after. So sorry that it wasn't the best of experience and what you've expected for and hope we were given the opportunity to hear from you whilst at the hotel. We hope you are settling in well and keep safe. Nga mihi nui | Kind regards Niraj Kumar – Hotel Manager

Lee-Ann v Business - TripAdvisor review

Stayed here for business twice in around March 2020 and was quite disappointed. I have stayed at the Ibis in Wellington many times before and expected the same level of service. The staff were friendly. They were busy upon arrival so was a long wait to check in, would have been great to have two staff on hand. I was tired after driving down from Auckland at 6 a.m. and working the whole day. The room was pleasant but a bit noisy unfortunately. The parking was a real big issue, lack of parking and I was not going to park off street. The food was really not that great, I ate dinner and breakfast at the hotel. I returned to Hamilton the week after and did not check back into the Ibis.

Kia ora Lee-Ann Thank you for your stay with us and providing us with your feedback. We're pleased that the team were able to assist and you found our rooms comfortable,however certainly learning on our part with other service delivery that we will work to improve on. Stay safe and our season greetings to you. Have a great week ahead. Nga mihi nui | Kind regards Niraj Kumar – Hotel Manager

DonnaraeRD Couples - TripAdvisor review

Always pleasant place to stay, friendly staff and good location for catching the bus to attend the Chiefs game, however now need to reserve a car park when booking as only a small number of car parks available.

Kia ora DonnaraeRD. We're so pleased to have had you on your recent stay and to learn it was a comfortable one. What a game weekend of activity we've had and was great to be a part of bring Hamilton back to a buzz. We hope to see you back soon.

Jo M Couples - TripAdvisor review

Room was very small, we were on Level 7, therefore the whole night all we could hear was the drone of the air-conditioning units on the roof, very loud and very annoying. We had breakfast which was definitely not worth the amount we paid. All the food was cold, the sausages were not even cooked, the toaster kept tripping out, so the food was stone cold by the time you finally got to eat it. Will not go back to this hotel
