I emailed them direct and got a instant reply which was a great start (good price offered) and we had a fantastic 2 bedroom unit which was very special and exactly what we needed on our road trip through New Zealand. My 2 young kids loved the heated pool and i enjoyed a relax in the thermal pool. They have...

Really liked this hotel - has been done up beautifully by the two guys who run it - excellent décor and the hospitality is second to none. Agree the food was not quite as good as I expected but it was still very good. Will definitely be back :)

We had a great stay at the Regent. It is a very chic hotel but also very, very comfortable. Although very stylish this is not at the expense of substance. The mineral pool was a great way to relax at the end of the day. The beds were incredibly comfortable. Darryn was very helpful and friendly and made us feel...

We drove up to the hotel and I thought "oh no" it looks so very dated. But our rooms were so trendy we loved them. Lovely furnishings and a seperate bedroom. And a bath!Very spacious. The staff were very helpful. Very easy walk to a huge choice of restaurants.

Pictures looked good but we have been misguided before, our expectations were exceeded. Service is lovely, rooms are fabulous. Food was not as good as expected, but they have won local awards, Well done guys....I would come back for the rooms and service by the pool. Closest I have felt to LA in NZ.

This boutique hotel is superb, a very comfortable bed and great bedding. The cooked breakfast was outstanding, and our evening meal was also top notch. The staff were very helpful with suggestions of local attractions to visit. One of the best locations I stayed in on my visit to New Zeasland

This is my second visit at Regent, only this time with more people! We absolutely love their two bedroom Executive Suite, comfortable and large enough, each room with very own privacy. Great for family with kids! Food was acceptable good but with room to improve. Dinner is much better than breakfast. Overall everyone is happy and this place is highly...

Although a motel in a former lifetime, the Regent of Rotorua definitely deserves its current designation as a boutique hotel. We spent two very comfortable nights in an executive studio. Our room was somewhat small but was beautifully furnished with a king bed and high quality linens. The tiled bathroom had a large walk-in shower equipped with two shower heads,...

I have dined at several restaurants in Rotorua while here on business. This restaurant is outstanding; the waiting staff were friendly, knowledgable about the menu and helpful. The meals were well presented, very tasty and well cooked. Our first experience was for dinner on Tuesday 13th May 2014; we shared the Regent ciabatta - which was freshly baked. I then...

The hotel itself is very nice; clean, well appointed, with a good location and amenities. Where it really shines is the staff - Every one there went well above and beyond to help make our stay outstanding. Darryn, at the front desk, was amazing. Due to quirky flight arrival times, we got to Rotorua well before normal check-in time; no...
