Good location, Basic Facilities

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

WorldWideKiwi 24/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

This property could be described as Accor's answer to a Backpackers Hostel but a bit more private and expensive. [Cheap for a hotel though] It is a refurbished old building and our room was on the fourth floor. Compact is the word with a mini bathroom, only two small opening windows and no air-conditioning. The day we arrived the room was like a sauna. You have to have the windows open at night and street noise was very noticeable. We had booked breakfast but, upon enquiring, were told there was no longer any dining room, nor a bar. Our continental breakfast was delivered to our room on a tray the previous evening. There is free parking. We enjoyed a comfortable king-sized bed and all facilities in the bathroom worked well. I haven't commented on service because basically there was none and we only saw four staff over the three days.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We regret that we were unable to make your stay pleasant enough. However, we do hope you choose to stay again so we have a chance to serve you better.

Good hotel in a city centre

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

SQFlyer72 Solo travel - 02/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

Hotel is situated in the city centre with restaurants, cafes and supermarkets within walking distance. Close walk to the bus stop for intercity buses and tour buses. Hotel room is typical ibis style and is good for short stays. Unfortunately, the hotel does not serve breakfast but one can always check out the cafes in the surrounding area.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We're glad you had a fairly pleasant stay with us. Please choose to stay with us again.

Superb stay - exceeded expectations!

Anne W Friends getaway - 03/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

This hotel is right in town, close to the transport museums and the pick up point for Stewart Island. Plus the wonderful gardens are a short drive.. Right from meeting the friendly helpful reception staff, to the decor, the comfortable bedroom with ensuite and breakfast delivery system, this hotel has everything right on the button!

Dear Guest, Thank you for your positive feedback and perfect rating. We're very happy we made your stay a memorable one and hopefully you'll come stay with us again. Thank you for all the lovely things you've said about us. We'd love to see you again.

Central Invercargill

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

Eric G Couples - 02/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

It is probably one of the most central hotels, but it is a very spread out city with little sense of a town centre. However, close to some good restaurants, secure parking, easy to find, clean and friendly. Like some other Ibis Styles we've stayed in a bit quirky, but fine for a short two night stay.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We're glad that your overall stay was pleasant despite the minute inconveniences you faced. We hope we will be successful in satisfying you completely if you decide to stay with us again.

A short first visit to Invercargill

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

rowanb552 Couples - 04/11/2019 TripAdvisor review

We enjoyed our two-night stay at the IBIS Styles Invercargill. The hotel location is convenient and the hotel wasquiet as well as obviously popular. . The complimentary breakfast is a welcome point of difference for the self-reliant traveller.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your positive review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and have many good things to say about us. We hope this leads to several more visits from your end. We eagerly look forward to your next visit.

Good value for groups of travellers

MarmiteNZ Friends getaway - 01/10/2019 TripAdvisor review

Three bedroom flat option good for a few days with option to have more space by going to one of the two guest lounges. Convenient location at quiet end of town, close to airport, supermarkets and town centre. Average amenities and sometimes noisy neighbours balanced out by cleanliness and group pricing. Beds are comfortable.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your positive review. We're glad that you were met with a pleasant stay at our hotel. We hope this means that we will find you staying with us frequently. We look forward to your next visit.

458john Business - 09/05/2019 TripAdvisor review

i did not mind the room itself as I was only staying for one night. It had all the basic essentials I needed for that short stay. Probably suitable for one or two individuals, and if you're only staying for a short time.

Dear Guest. I appreciate your positive feedback about our hotel. We do take pride in catering to our guests' needs the best way we can. If you're traveling to our area again soon, don't hesitate to call us.

Not the Ibis Styles I was expecting

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

MILJW002 Family - 25/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

Generally we have had a great experience with the Accor hotels. Our first preference is the M Gallery chain, but when they’ve not been an option Ibis has still been good. Cheap and cheerful. I was a little disappointed when we arrived at the Ibis Styles Invercargill. After we checked in and made it to the room it had more of a converted backpackers feel than a hotel. Not the “cheerful” part if was hoping for. Invercargill was a halfway point between Dunedin and Queenstown, and our original plan was to stop here on the way. We decided to push on to Queenstown rather than stay here. The staff were friendly, but it had more of a backpackers feel, and wasn’t particularly relaxing.

Thank you for sharing your most constructive feedback regarding your recent visit . We are extremely concerned to read the areas of opportunity that your review has brought to our attention and sincerely apologize for your experience and not meeting your expectations. Our relationship with our guests is of paramount importance to us.Please allow me to assure you that I will investigate this occurrence and take up this feedback seriously with my entire team in regards to the lapse in service and the adequate training needs will be reiterated to the team. I am extremely disappointed at letting you and ourselves down. The standard of service experienced by you is definitely not the kind that we aspire to achieve.

24yogesht Couples - 12/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

Unhappy with the parking charges. A customer staying in this hotel has to pay for parking, it is ridiculous. After parking in the basement you have to criss cross from a maize and scan key at multiple doors to reach your room. I met at least three other customers lost on the way. Elderly will have a nightmare.

Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your recent visit. The concern which you raised have been noted and feedback will be shared with the management.We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you and look forward to seeing you soon.

Expensive Backpackers

Hotel needs to be upgraded. The weather was in the 30 degrees c. No AIR CONDITIONING. No bar or restaurant. Friendly staff. Expensive for what it is. Out of date decor. Cramped rooms. Mini bar offers little selection.

More budget than apartment.....

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

rodgerthat73 Family - 15/08/2018 TripAdvisor review

First impressions were great central location.....room impression a bit dissappointed. Was marketed as a 2 bed apartment, but reality more hostel set up. It was clean and tidy and at $140 a night, the most competitive in Invercargill for our family of 4. Beds are built in to the wall, so you have to climb over the other person to get in and out, quite a tight space, but fine for a one night stay. Breakfast room opened 1 hour late (no explanation except, there hadbeen a problem? But breakfast was included in tariff and pretty standard for a continental breakfast. On colder days ring ahead and ask then to turn heating on, as room was very cold when we first arrived.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback, I am pleased to see that you were happy with our central location, I do apologise regarding the breakfast room no being open on time, this was a staffing issue but has now been resolved.

Decent hotel with a few flaws.

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

ChrisNZontheroad Couples - 08/08/2018 TripAdvisor review

Hotel was reasonably priced in a convenient location close to shops and cafes as well as main road. Staff were helpful and answered our questions. However both the noise and the room layout left a lot to be desired. Noise traveled throughout the floor whenever other guests entered the area so we were woken up multiple times throughout the night be others talking in the corridor and opening doors. The layout of the room was also a bit odd as they had jammed the bed up against a cupboard meaning one of us had a face in the cupboard all night with no bedside table easily accessible. There were multiple other places the cupboard could've gone so it seemed odd to put it right next to the bed. The overall room was clean, however the bathroom needed a bit of attention as the shower head looked old and dirty and the grouting was starting to look poor. Overall a decent place to stay.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback, I am pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay with us and were happy with our central location, Yes the layout of some of the rooms were not thought out well when this building was made into accommodation, we are however in the process of upgrading our property so moving the wardrobes is possibly something that we could look into.

Most unexpected ,centre of town easy to walk to restaurants and attractions, great value for money, pleasant and obliging staff, all very good. the Motor cycle mania is right next door and the Hayes hardware shop is an easy walk for its special delights.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback, I am pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay with us, and were able to check out our local attractions.

Reasonably priced and centrally located

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

MarmiteNZ Solo travel - 07/05/2018 TripAdvisor review

While the hotel is not flash, it has basic catering equipment including a microwave and a small fridge that's bigger than a minibar which makes it a great place to stay long term. The bathroom also had a fold down seat in the shower. I didn't have the breakfast so can't comment on it. It was quiet too. Minor faults with lights as the bedside lamp didn't work and had a wonky shade plus the bed light flickered.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback, I am pleased you were happy with our price and central location, we do have new lamps on order and are waiting for them to arrive, but I will have the housekeepers check the bulbs and make sure they are working as they go.

A few days at Invercargill

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

Fitogo Couples - 09/03/2018 TripAdvisor review

We had 4 nights at the Ibis in Invercargill. The reception and other staff were very friendly, efficient and helpful. We had a clean, comfortable well serviced and maintained queen bed room. There is parking under the hotel and the location is central for the town and good for visiting the attractions and scenic sites in the area. The continental breakfast is basic but adequate.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback, I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us, with our central location and friendly staff

A very welcome and restful stay with generous breakfasts!

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

Moira T Couples - 09/02/2018 TripAdvisor review

Our stay was a very welcome rest! The staff were helpful and the rooms clean, spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was good and generous. Our departure was marred by a failure of the front door mechanism as we were leaving to get our taxi. This meant we had to leave by the back door but the taxi driver was instructed by the receptionist to meet us there.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback, I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us, and were able to take advantage of our complimentary continental breakfast. I do apologise that you were not able to get out our front door, but am happy that the staff were able to let the taxi no where to pick you up from.

Summer Holiday in Invercargill

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

Gerard W Couples - 17/01/2018 TripAdvisor review

Avoid this hotel in summer. There is no air conditioning and the rooms are like a furnace on a hot day. Otherwise the hotel is well located and offers a reasonably good breakfast. Staff are also very helpful.

Dear Gerard W, Thank you for your feedback, Yes Invercargill has been extremely unusually hot this summer, it has been hard to get away from the heat no matter where you are, although we have no air con (as its not usually needed in Invercargill :)) I do hope our staff provided you with a decent fan to keep you as cool as possible.

Comfortable place to stay

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

hizzock Family - 02/01/2018 TripAdvisor review

Comfortable, smart, modern rooms. The design is simple and fresh. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel's car park was full when we arrived, but we were able to park just outside on the street. Good location right in the centre of the city. A decent breakfast was included, although the breakfast room could do with some more attractive decor and furniture - it felt a bit like a school room. Overall a very comfortable and pleasant stay.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback, I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us, and were happy with our central location, and complimentary continental breakfast.

Service was good but hotel is awful

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

SHY001 Family - 10/12/2017 TripAdvisor review

All the hotel staff were lovely, the (double) beds are comfortable and the bathrooms were clean and had good water pressure, however the hotel is woeful. We had a three bedroom apartment fronting onto Tay St. The blinds didn't close properly and the window are only single glazing, so the bedrooms were constantly lit up and noisy (Invercargill boy racers every night!) making it near impossible to sleep. Off street parking was in addition to the $188 per night tariff at a cost of $10 per night. The garage we were allocated had a broken door and was manually locked at 11pm, not opening until 7am. We had to chase up new internet passwords everyday, as they expired every 24 hours on the dot. The weather was very warm, and with no aircon the rooms were very uncomfortable, both warm and humid. Despite a guest limit of 6 there was only enough seating for 3 people in the unit. There is a high step into both the toilet and shower room (waterproofing?) which proved very dangerous in the dark - stubbed toes and tripping. Expected a lot more for an Accor property and also for the price.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback, I am pleased that you were happy with our staff. Sorry that you were not completely satisfied with your stay with us, we are in the process of replacing our blinds with curtains, the garage door is now fixed, November was a very unusually warm month for us this year.
