"Small but comfy"
3rd September 2013, 222vee, Gisborne, New Zealand
The rooms are a tight but they cover the necessities. The location is central so if you if get out and about instead of spending hours in your room, you should be fine. Otherwise value for $ with helpful staff.View management response »
Management responseYes we are very fortunate with our location. Also offering exceptional value for money saving that pocket money for guests to spend this on all the exciting sites and attractions of the local area
"This hotel is great"
3rd September 2013, SalesRep186, Auckland Central, New Zealand
I had a small, wonderful lakeview room which had everything I needed. Stayed 2 nights, ate in the restaurant one of those nights and found the service very friendly and efficient. For the price, it was exceptional. Would stay again.View management response »
Management responseWe have a fantastic view and pride ourselves on our level of service and home away from home approach from the hotel employees when engaging the guests. Great to read you found the service to this level and I will share with the team.
"Perfectly adequate resting point."
16th August 2013, dwr42, London, United Kingdom
Upon walking into the Ibis (after a beautiful 4 hour drive) we were welcomed to the "tourist capital of New Zealand". The receptionist was very friendly and helped us organise a Maori experience. As we were there for a single night the Ibis was what was needed, a place to rest before setting out - a criteria it meet well (the Chinese breakfast option was interesting). Pity about the town of Rotarua...not the greatest place in New Zealand by any stretch!View management response »
Management responseThank you for taking the time to post a review. Yes our location is fantastic for the 1 night stay guest with its close proximity to attractions. The Chinese breakfast buffet is an addition to the full cooked buffet station adding more choice and variety for our guests
"Great Service, Great Place"
28th July 2013, Kewai13
Not toooooo luxurious but being a budget brand its expected. It was a great space to sleep and the customer service was above amazing! Breakfast wasn't too bad either. I would definitely stay here again for such a great price!View management response »
Management responseI especially like your comments in regards to "Customer service above amazing" so thank you for taking the time to post a review. We continually look for improvements and are rewarded by such praise.

"Overall a very nice stay at a good price"
24th July 2013, Kiwikid0, Auckland, New Zealand
I have stayed here before and with the special deals that come up from the Accor group, it makes this hotel a very good price that is very hard to beat in this tourist town. Quite a small room but adequate for a few nights stay, very comfortable bed. The room was very clean, the carpet may need attention soon but generally no complaints. I had a cooked breakfast one morning but not the second morning as I was a little disappointed. The scrambled eggs were tasteless and uninspiring, made to go further with the addition of milk, not good at all. The rest of the cooked breakfast was okay but continental is more than enough for me, it was very good. The service overall is a bit casual, I was struggling with bags but was offered no help on check in. Just the usual 'here's your key, lifts on the left etc', not very welcoming. I have found this before at this hotel and think the staff need some extra training. Novotel in the Accor Group is next door and I went there one night for a coffee with a question for the concierge, his attitude was appalling so maybe it's a general thing for Accor in Rotorua. Needs attention.View management response »
Management responseOverall you have written some very positive comments which I will ensure are shared with the team. A porter service to carry guest bags to their rooms is not a service provided by the Ibis brand worldwide and this is reflective in the room rate. The Novotel does offer a full porter service for bag delivery and is in a higher star rating than the Ibis. It is disappointing to read of your experience with the concierge in Novotel and I will definitely follow this up. I both apologise that a couple of the services were not to your expectation and also thank you for sharing your comments.

The staff were very friendly . Our room met our expectations. it was good to be able to control heat in the room on a chilly winters night. There were what appeared to be cigarette burns in our shower , this could be repaired to improve the look in the bathroom.View management response »
Management responseYes the individual room thermostats allow for personalised custom air condition settings which are of added value. We value our training and focus on customer service to deliver and friendly yet professional service to all of our guests. I have noted your comments in regards to the burn marks in the shower and passed this onto the maintenance team. Thank you for taking the time to post your review of Ibis Rotorua and we look forward to once again being able to welcome you to our great hotel.
"3 Nights stay one night free"
13th July 2013, AshInvercargill, Invercargill
2 double beds in the room made it very cramped.We could not alter the air conditioning so very very stuffy as no fresh air in room and temperature was too high on the air conditioning.We stayed 5 nights and it was good value. The bathroom was a bit tired and needed a spruce up. The service was very good from housekeeping and reception.View management response »
Management responseDear Ashinvercargill,As an economy Hotel the rooms do tend to be more compact than our 4 star sister Hotel (Novotel) next door. I will ask the engineers to look at the temperature - it could be our ambient temperature is set too high, thank you for the comment.I have passed on your kind words regarding the team, thank you - they are very hard working and dedicated, so I love being able to pass on our guests thanks.Thank youFraser McKenzieGeneral Manager
"Ibis Rotorua comes up trumps"
11th July 2013, Vickimoss, Auckland Central, New Zealand
This really was great. Not fancy, but clean and warm and comfortable - just what was needed. This hotel is very close to the centre of Rotorua and the restaurants in town, butalso has an in-house restaurant as well. The staff were very helpful, especially Jackie andthe team working with her. Jackie went out of her way with my odd-ball requests for directions, all the staff were really pleasant and it seemed a 'happy ship'. And a reallygood shower in my room with decent pressure! What more could you want?!View management response »
Management responseThanks for your positive comments and I will ensure Jackie and the team have these comments shared with them
