Stayed in a two bedroom apartment. Nice clean accommodation. Comfortable enough. Good amenities. Staff friendly and helpful. However we always require a smoke free room (two members of family have an allergy to tobacco). Sadly smokers are allowed on the veranda and the doors do not seal. We were forced to vacate the lounge room of our apartment early. Bad... More

We chose the Regal Palms Resort for our first visit to Rotorua and we were not disappopinted and would choose it again despite an initial hiccup. I had booked an overnight stay but a few days before arrival rang to book a second night. However, upon arrival we found the extra booking had not been written down which caused some... More

Friendly service. Great size units and facilities and immaculately clean and tidy. Stayed 2 nights and the cleaners were also friendly and accommodating. Chilling in the spa bath with a bottle of bubbles was incredibly relaxing. Outdoor pool could be a bit warmer as it goes into Autumn. We will definitely stay again when in Taupo

Many thanks for your kind comments - we do raise the pool temperature as the weather gets colder but as the weather is still quite warm we haven't raised it too much yet More

We were so happy to stay at Regal Palms City Resort while visiting Rotorua. We had so much space which was needed when traveling with 3 small kids. Kids loved the huge bathroom and spa and adults enjoyed the own en-suite bathroom. I have to mention the pool, our kids just loved it. They have toys to play with and... More

We stayed one night at the two-bedroom suite. The suite is very spacious ,comfortable and clean. Furniture is modern and elegant, so the suite is kind of luxurious. There are two washing room in the suite, but actually one of them is just a small toilet, the other one is extremely huge with an individual shower area and a luxurious... More

Really large and spacious self contained apartment with large bathroom and small private garden area. All the amenities you'd expect but a little dated and definitely a motel feel. Friendly and efficient service and quiet location even though on the main drag. Good option and value for money

One in a long line of many motel-style hotels throughout Rotorua, but far from plain fare. Our 2 night stay found the hotel to be perfectly suited for purpose: simply but well-furnished, well located on South side of town for easy access to local sights and with mini golf/tennis court/pool/gym for what little downtime you may have. Free wifi and... More

This resort was in an excellent location along the main strip in Rotorua and about a 1km away from Te Puia. The room was very comfortable, clean and spacious. The staff were very accommodating. This resort offers a heated pool, mini golf, free dvd rentals, free parking etc. Good value for money.

We had three great days at this motel. They really have thought of everything down to the lovely fluffy dressing gowns. The pool is lovely and warm and very clean. The rooms are very modern and beautifully kept. They do not have a restaurant but we had a cooked breakfast delivered to the room and it was very good. We... More
