Tainui

Fairly standard hotel in all ways. It is what you might expect from a chain group. Clean warm friendly. Restaurant staff needed to be more on top of their game. Service was average. No free Wi-Fi is a bit annoying these days. Even the small private outfits provide internet free. Having the use the bar internet gets annoying.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Park your own car, in the casino car park. Collect the ticket and get it validated in the casino. It will only cost $5. Compared to $20 for the hotel to park it in the same car park.

good value

No parking available when I checked in. Had to drive to the nearby casino for parking - no great distance but meant offloading baggage, checking in then driving car to casino and walking back. This cost $15.00 per day and would have been $20.00 had I used valet service. There is no free wifi in rooms but is limited in dining area. Credit cards are charged a 1.5% surcharge. We had dinner in the hotel which was okay and staff satisfactory but the layout of the 'restaurant' was sorely in need of improvement - it was clinical to put it mildly. Overall the value was reasonable but given the ambivalent attitude at reception, the charges for everything extra, which even in motels one takes for granted, I would not recommend the hotel.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Having breakfast at the Casino is much cheaper than in the Hotel. Its a very short walk from Ibis to the Casino. Nice start to the day, brief walk to gain appetite.

Great location

This hotel is in central Hamilton and is handily located next to the restaurants and bars. But not too close so its noisy. Clean and tidy and helpful staff. Would stay there again.
