We had a wonderful dinner here. Staying at the hotel we decided to also eat here. First we had some good drinks, different NZ red wines to taste. The beef fillet was cooked to perfection and the fish of the day very good, too. The Manuka Honey Panna Cotta was finger licking good :-) We also had breakfast here: eggs... More

For the price (high) and the ambience ( it's amazing) the food was a bit disappointing. Tastes didn't quite come off, my chicken was a bit dry and a sauce would have been nice. Entrees were large but again flavours didn't quite come off. Excellent wine list and I thought reasonably priced. Maybe chef was having a day off?

Have visited twice in the last month, for Lunch & Dinner & each time we were very happy with our meals. The only down was our lunch waiter who keep leaning across the table, over guests, to place food on the table and forgetting that a pot of tea usually comes with sugar & milk options. The Evening meal was... More

Having been to the Regent 3 times, I must say my review is mixed. A dinner with a group of 4 people was absolutely divine, and a large group lunch was great also, however our staff Xmas party was very disappointing. We were a large number, and had booked in advanced, there were other large parties, and I think they... More

The breakfast at the hotel was really bad. This was really a surprise since Darryn and Brent own a very good restaurant in the same town. Would not eat there again

We only had one night to dine out whilst in Rotorua, and whilst we usually choose to eat elsewhere than in the hotel in which we are staying, we made the mistake of checking out the menu. It sounded so delicious that we were hooked and so went no further! I had the Moroccan Vegetable and Nut Roast which was... More

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
