Lovely room with kitchenette. Huge spa bath in ensuite. Private little courtyard with table n chair out back. Resort has pool and mini golf on grounds. You get a free beer or mini bottle of wine and a couple off cookies on check in. That was. Nice touch. Comfy bed and Pillows

We stayed at Regal Palms for one night during a weekend away. Loved the spacious studio, luxury fitout, free wifi, heat pump, Sky TV, and especially the spa in the outsize bathroom. We had the room service breakfast, which was excellent- far better than often served at motels. This place meets the highest of standards on all fronts.

This is a large, sprawling motor lodge that is located very close to the thermal area of Whakarewarewa. Whilst the area is flat, It is not within easy walking distance of the town centre so a car or other form of transport is essential. Check in was very quick and efficient. Unit 25 allocated to my wife and I was... More

While I was here for business, I will certainly consider coming here with the family next time in Rotorua. The room was very lean, it had plenty of parking and the owners are very nice. My room came with a huge spa bath and was located in a nice quiet location. The bed was comfy and the pillows were ok.... More

Amazing bathrooms with spa pool. Private outdoor area. Great services with day spa, laundry and dry cleaners. Mini golf and free DVD to borrow overnight. No room service for late night cravings though.

We had another five star stay at Regal Palms for my birthday weekend in August 2016. Couldn't fault anything. Very welcoming at Reception when we arrived. Offered us a free Herald newspaper delivered to our room if we wanted it and also magazines. We accepted and received the paper the next morning. When we were checking out on Sunday morning... More

Came for one night with our two kids (5 and 7). Rooms well laid out. Bathroom and spa bath good to use for the kids - don't leave them in attended obviously! Great selection of DVDs for free - including all the hobbit films (needed as the Hobbiton movie set is less than an hour away!). Easy check in and... More

My partner and I regularly stay in Rotorua without the kids and decided to try somewhere new to stay. The owner was welcoming and we got our key - along with a treat of biscuits along with our carton of milk. The rooms were large and well appointed and decorated with modern decor. Our king-sized bed was comfortable and we... More
