My partner and I were so impressed we ended up changing our plans so we could stay another night. Staff were amazing and so helpful with things to do, places to see & restaurants. I have been raving on about the Regent to everyone back home. Would definitely recommend!

The thing that stands out about this hotel is the staff and the outstanding service they provide. The rooms are all nice, clean, and comfortable. The outward appearance of the hotel is OK but not going to overly impress anyone. However, I can honestly say the service provided by the entire staff, from the manager (Darryn) on down, is unsurpassed....

The drive up to this converted 1950's motor lodge is not going to immediately impress you, and the new annex certainly looks like an elegant holiday gift box from a luxury boutique. But you know this is going to be something different when you walk into the lobby, all in home-done black-and-white with full-sized (artificial) white rhinoceros heads above the...

Nice style, well appointed, excellent customer service. Great inhouse restaurant, and also really close to "eat street" where half the restaurants in town are located. Fairly quiet for innercity location. Only downside was the airfreshener was pretty overpowering.

I thought we would get just a motel room. But what we got was a very nice living room, large modern bathroom and a separate bedroom. All updated and totally modern. Just...

The owners have done a fanstastic refurbishment of this classic style motor inn. White walls with modern wallpaper & chic furniture. Clean, practical & comfortable rooms. We stayed in a 2 bedroom for 2 nights. I adored the deep free standing bath & the oversized shower with the shower head that could be directed straight down from the roof. A...

Lovely rooms and complex, with hot pool within hotel. Extremely friendly staff, who helped book tours and gave many suggestions about things to do and places to go and came to our car to help us unpack. Also changed us from a first floor room to the ground floor to make it easier for our luggage. Would definitely recommend staying...
