"The room was cavernous! Makes me wonder what local dignitaries and their families lived in "Wesley Chambers" as this building was originally called. Wireless internet worked well as long as door was left open (!) Furnishings a bit dated, but room was very clean and staff were very friendly and helpful (courtesy umbrella for the one rainy day during my visit!). A couple adjacent restaurants (delicious!) allow chargeback to room. Smoking balcony very pleasant and appreciated! Free parking also very much appreciated, as there is precious little downtown. This is the place to stay if you want to immerse yourself in Hamilton nightlife."

"i had booked this hotel as i was heading to hamilton on business but had to end up taking my wife and 3 month old baby girl. from my entry the staff were very helpful offering to help carry goods and pram to my hotel. they even offered me a free upgrade to a room with a baby cot but i declined as i planned to leave within a few hours. i was pleasantly surprised that the hotel staff had come to my room and offered a fruit basket as complimentary. on the next morning i had to leave at 5am and i had a staff member at reception who was helpful in opening the parking gates at such an early hour. definitely would come back to this hotel and will look forward to going to other hotels as part of this chain.

"We have stayed at the Kingsgate on another occasion, which is why we booked in again. We love the big room and the fact that the two beds are queen sized. Room and bathroom were immaculately laid out and were of the highest standard of cleanliness.All staff were very polite and helpful.On this occasion we did not dine at the hotel as we were in Hamilton for a family occasion but on our previous visit found the restaurant meals to be of a high standard with a variety of food offered. We look forward to our next stay at the Kingsgate!"

"This has been one of the best places we've stayed in New Zealand. Both receptionists we dealt with were amazingly nice. We spilled some coffee on our sheets between days and they happily gave us new ones. The maid service was always incredibly thorough. The mini kitchen in the room had some kitchenware and they even cleaned our dishes for us! Also the showers were really nice, and the bed was comfortable. All in all a great place to stay."

"Had a lovely over-nighter at the Ibis Tainui Hamilton Hotel. Decided to have dinner at the hotel restaurant instead of going down the road - great idea as the hotel restaurant was quiet (ie not noisy), and the food and restaurant service was excellent. Our room and bed was comfortable. Was surprised at the extra cost for parking (valet parking only at $20); and was politely directed off-site for self-parking down the road at $15. The extra $ for parking made it less affordable and competitive. Wouldn't spend the extra again for the river view; a big oak tree blocks the view from many rooms; had to lean over the counter and put my head on the window to see the river further along. Clean and quiet though. "

"We had a great experience at this hotel. It was great value for money, in a excellent location for the main entertainment strip in Hamilton. The staff were helpful and the 24 hour reception made the valet parking an great addition. Room was comfortable (big big and all the extras). We didn't eat in the hotel but it had a good looking range. We would stay at this hotel again when in Hamilton."

"Stayed here for the long weekend as my fiancé had a training course to attend in Hamilton. Free parking was a major plus. Staff were all extremely helpful and friendly, even when we left his uniform behind and had to have it couriered to us. Did not use gym or pool (it was winter). Breakfast was mostly variations on toast and cereal which was a little disappointing but as it was included in the room rate we weren’t too put out by this. Would return if in Hamilton again."
