We had a lovely experience at the Regal Palms. The room was very large and well-furnished. The bathroom, in particular, was huge. Overall, it has a "motel" feel about it so it wasn't especially fancy. But it had everything we needed and the location was great.

We only stayed for one night but will definitely be going back. Rooms were spacious and clean, lovely big bathroom and the spa is great. Loved the outdoor pool and the option to play tennis or mini golf was a nice touch. Highly recommended!

Bathroom had a jacuzzi bath, separate shower with heated floor and mirror. There's a small play area for toddlers, next to the heated pool. The sulphur smell can be...

Great accommodation! Very clean, tidy, warm, huge rooms. Good size tv, air conditioning & really comfortable bed! Spa bath is a bonus & fantastic shower! Handy to town & all attractions. We found a lot of food places delivered to the hotel which was helpful after a long day out sightseeing!

We stayed 2 nights at the Regal Palms. The staff is very friendly, the bathrooms are nice with a jacuzzi bath and heated floors, but the rest of the motel feels a little dated. Initially I was worried that the sulfur smell of a nearby hot spring would be constant, but it dissipated and was barely noticeable shortly thereafter. I...

Great friendly service, facilities and mountain bikes! Juggling accommodation around family and friends can sometimes be a pain the proverbial, but Regal Palms came up with the goods and more. It's so close to the forest it's not funny and I took the bike out plenty of times to explore and have fun. There was no time left to enjoy...

The hotel was very nice and well appointed, very nice for an extended stay. There is a small gym, sauna and a heated pool. You can walk to downtown from there where there are lots of restaurants and you can even get groceries and cook in the room. The staff was friendly and helpful and there is a large amount...

We stayed recently for the school holidays but had to return to Auckland a day early, although we had booked for the extra night. I didn't expect a refund for the extra night and didn't ask for one, but Christina contacted me a couple of days later to let me know they had managed to get a booking for our...
