Only tried the Restaurant of the motel. BTW its NOT a 4 Seasons - Regent. The food was pleasant enough but the atmosphere and ambience was horrible. Stark and cheaply decorated. Was told it was THE best place to eat in Rotorua. Would not go back for the price paid vis a vis food and atmosphere. Admittedly they had problems... More

We didn't manage to try the dinner menu, but we did have plenty of room service breakfast. Definitely recommend the pancakes.

I have travelled a bit over the last two years, and stayed at and reviewed a few hotels. Except for one experience in Hong Kong, this is the best hotel I have stayed at. It wins on every level, firstly location, no more than five minutes from anywhere in the city centre, and actually abutting , Eat Street The hosts,... More

Recommended by a friend and spent a very pleasant evening here. Food well presented ( Nut and lentil loaf with couscous) and flavoursome, dessert ( Manuka honey panacotta) excellent. Nice choice of wine, good ambience and great service A very enjoyable evening, nice decor added to the general ambience. Would return

We went to there for my husband's birthday. The decoration is bright and clean. The food, tasty is good but not as good as what tripadvisor says. I would say average for me.

Nice venue, friendly staff, but standards not as high as previously, may have been an off day? A little pricey for food quality.

Firstly the service is friendly and they really try with the presentation of food but here goes: The portions are too large - try for quality over quantity (more goats cheese, less mouse for example) Don't know who is mixing those cocktails...and the bartender had no idea about wine (gave us a full wine glass of musket and we just...

We enjoyed our meal here. I had noticed this place and meant to come some time - recently we got the opportunity. We have gone gluten free and this was no problem. We had some nice wine and the service was great. The decor is lovely so you feel like it is a bit of an occasion. I recommend it.

Greeted by a warm welcome our party of four was ushered to our pleasant table in this spacious, tasteful restaurant. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and well worth the wait. A reasonably imaginative wine list complimented the attractive menu and initially the service was attentive and professional although a littly tardy as we were waiting to leave. We will... More
