The first thing yo'd notice about this hotel is its location! It is right next to Lake Rotorua, 2 mins walk to Eat Street and all the great eateries, and just a short walk away from the i-Site if you're catching a bus or a tour shuttle. The rooms were decent, nice space. The price was excellent for the season...

Dave and the friendly staff made us feel very welcomed right from checkin and into our 2 day stay. They were always willing to assist with any request and freely offered good local advice. Our room was clean and comfortable with a lovely view of the lake. An added bonus was being able to use the facilities of next door's...

Room 358, quiet, clean, good view of lake. Hotel staff, specifically front desk reception were all helpful and excellent manners. Breakfast was of a very good standard. My only gripe is that the Internet wifi should be free. I would recommend as place to stay

My husband and I had two nights here. It was a lot cheaper than many alternatives and although not up-market or trendy, had everything we needed. The room had a good view, was clean and reasonably roomy (with a king bed as well as a single bed). Facilities were adequate, simple and pleasant. The position was good - a stone's...

This is a budget hotel but was clean and within walking distance to the middle of the town, use of the swimming pool at the novotel next door was an extra bonus. We used the bar at the Novotel as the bar in the ibis wasn't open. The staff were always very helpful with getting information for the tours we...

Tour group made the arrangements. Hotel is nice and well kept. Yes full of tourists from different groups and crowded at times, but rooms were quiet. Wifi did not work well, except in the lobby. The desk people did not help, maybe they did not understand.

Ibis is the downscale brand of Novotel. The Rotorua Ibis is, in fact, located right next to the Novotel and, as an Ibis guest, you get to use the pool, etc. at the Novotel. It is also located right around the corner from Eat Street which is the outdoor food mall in Rotorua and is right near the lake, etc....

We stayed for three nights on the fourth floor and had a magnificent view over the lake and the green. The room however was very small with a king bed and a single, there were two of us. Between the beds one needed to walk sideways to get to the bottom of the bed and therefore the bathroom. There was...

We stayed at the Ibis for two nights. The room was clean and comfortable. Our room overlooked the harbour. Great hotel for the price and the staff were amazing and eager to help at the drop of a hat. Wifi was good. Breakfast was okay, but could improve
