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

The staff & facilities available at this resort certainly lived up to our expectations. The room was very spacious, and the very large spa in the bathroom was a treat! Of course, Rotorua is a stinky town because of the sulphur smell/geothermal activity, but the room we stayed in was pristine. We only noticed the smell when we left the... More

I had a business meeting at the Regal Palms. This is a very well presented place with clean rooms and lovely service. Our room was clean, warm and quiet from surrounding noise. The Wi-fi was not good. It kept dropping and disconnecting. This made our meeting a little difficult. But overall, a nice place to have a business meeting.

Upon arriving we knew we had made a great choice in choosing this hotel. The reception is warm and welcoming, with hints of the length the owners have gone to make their guests happy. DVD library, tennis rackets, golf clubs, all free for the guests to use. We were given our key in a nice basket along with cartons of... More

We stayed in a Studio suite - just right for two people. Nicely decorated and great facilities. Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom very nice and clean. Try the full breakfast - will set you up for a day of sight seeing!

Really good service, the facilities were great! The room was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Only a 2 min drive into the town centre, very handy. Although wifi was a bit slow for us it was a great overall stay and would definitely recommend!

My parent and I decided on a mid-week adventure holiday and we're delighted with our 4 night stay at the regal palms. The selling point is the huge spa baths which each individual room has. The studio is surprisingly spacious, sunny and warm mid-winter. A private courtyard was a lovely surprise also, (great for the naughty smokers which they allow... More

Wife picked it out from the pictures online and upon check in wanted to immediately leave. Ended up staying 2 nights however. Bathroom was nice with spa tub and heated floor. Outside property wasn't nearly as nice as the pictures. The lady at front desk didn't like the questions my wife and son had about the amenities listed. Location is... More
