Good food and good atmosphere.
The restaurant was very quiet which didn't help the atmosphere. Food was good. Service was fine.
Food was divine, staff were friendly and efficient, really enjoyed the meal , was tasty as
Little lighting. Average bed. $260 room was worse than the $140 room. Booked to have friends on same floor and got there to find out they didnt arrange. No hand towel. Basically very slack service. Wont ever be back
I like staying at Ibis and believe that accommodation is value for money. I like the atmosphere and generally like the food and service, however this trip there were two things that definitely let you down: SERVICE - my room was not cleaned properly on Tuesday - the handbasin in the bathrrom was not cleaned. BREAKFAST - I took my own as I only ever have Bircher Muesli - I buy this locally at $8 per serving not $24 per serving. I accept that you are offering a self help service however maybe this needs to be considered further. DINNER - I accept I asked for something on the menu with a slight change. My request was for the Pawns Entre with a piece of salmon added. On my previous visit I asked for the same and it was devine. I don't know what happened this time - maybe the person that took my order didn't understand and/or listen to me. 1. Foods took along time to be ready for pick up so I didn't complain - I was hungry. 2. My order was for the Pawn Entre which came with Prawns, rice, corn, avocado etc at a cost of $17 plus a piece of Salmon. What did I get - Prawns, a dollop of rice, piece of Salmon with a few drops of BBQ sauce. This wasn't what I asked for - I was hungry so didn't complain. 3. Price - I did complain and get it fixed up - my charge was for a Salmon meal with extras $39.00. I did not pay this as this was not what I ordered, the person at the counter agreed and corrected this, I was charged $27.00 for an Prawn Entre plus a piece of Salmon - I didn't get the full Entre - I did not complain as I was hungry. 4. Picked up my meal without cutlery, bit of a nuisance having to back down to the restaurant to pick this up. CONCLUSION - I will come back but I WILLNOT dine in the restaurant.
Very nice meal
Lovely meal and service
We thoroughly enjoyed our eating experience, thank you for good food and great service.
Staff were friendly and helpful, food was good. Only slight issues were fridge in our room was quite noisy and when checking out reception staff didn't seem particularly familiar with packages but they were apologetic and sorted it to our satisfaction. Would be happy to stay again.
Lack of room service is not great. Menu option is quite limited The chips were not cooked properly.
love our time at Ibis and so enjoyed our eening meal
AlwYs good at i Bistro
Probably the best hotel restaurant food we have had in a long while. My wife had the lamb papadelle, and I had the chille pork belly. Both very very good, and with the Accor discount the value cannot be beaten.
We stayed two nights and enjoyed our stay. The Easter egg was a nice touch..... The staff were very friendly and most helpful. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else when visiting Hamilton.
Fabulous meal and great service - thank you for a lovely evening.
Lovely place, great food!
Lovely meal with table overlooking the river. Great servic
They need to work on menu and quality of food cooking. Serving desert with live ant on the flower not a sign of valuing costumers.
Awesome food and great atmosphere. Staff were friendly and professional. Thanks for a great evening.
Like most of menu but have been there for work since September 2017 on and off and menu the same. Would be good to have a "dish of the week/fortnight" to add variety for regulars without massive change to the kitchen routines and produce buying etc. Otherwise a reasonable place to stay and eat. Love the squid entree. Always tender and tasty.
Wine list could be improved but I am fine with the Church Road chardonnay! Good beer selection. Menu is a bit unchanging. It could do with a refit soon. (I always have the 'burger and fries - no complaints there.) But I would probably try something from the new menu, or would like to, anyway! Staff make the difference. I think the Ibis staff are great! And sitting on the deck is the place to be right now!
Loved our dinner here. Service and Food was outstanding. Highly recommend! Lovely staff
The food was great but unfortunately the service was lacking. Have been here before and it was great. Disappointed this time
Everything was pretty good except the 2 of us who ordered the sirloin found it very grisly and hard to chew through. We would suggest a change of butcher.
