Having just returned from a visit to Australia and New Zealand involving stays at several fine hotels, I must commend the exceptionally high standard of comfort and room features available at the Regal Palms Resort complex Rotorua. Without doubt, the staff really try hard to ensure that your stay is memorable for all the right reasons, and the room we selected, (an Executive 1 Bedroom Suite) proved to offer a surprisingly high level of quality furnishings and modern fittings and fixtures. On entry to the room,the lounge area was spacious and included a computer desk, a 3 seat settee which can be converted into a comfortable bed, a n additional settee facing an LCD TV and a micro Hi-Fi system on a table. The room had an efficient heater/ air conditioning unit and a table and chairs within the kitcjhen area. The fitted kitchen was very modern with stainless steel cooking pans and utensils, a toaster, a kettle, a microwave oven and a fridge. Most kitchen utensils were provided and it was an easy task to prepare quite complex meals with these facilities. A supermarket is easily accessible by car within 5 minutes from the complex and the location is ideal for the local shops in Rotorua. The bedroom was equally impressive with high quality cotton bedding and co-ordinated soft furnishings. Stotrage space was impressive in the fitted wardrobes and the atmosphere was nearer to a home than a hotel stop. The bathroom was the best surprise with a large deep jacuzzi bath with powerful water jets. A shower cubicle area was included in the bathroom design, together with two porcelain sinks, backed by a full length mirror. A heated towel rail ensured that the big fluffy towels were always dry and ready for another relaxing bathe.
The overall impression of this find was that we were extremely fortunate to have discovered such a jewel in the Rotorua area, and visits to all the main attractions was simple and quick by car. There are restaurants within the local area and delivery to your room can be made with a phone call if you do not want to prepare food yourself.
On arrival, we were given a welcome basket of a carton of milk and some cookies for the first cup of tea or coffee: a thoughtful and welcome gesture. Reception staff are always willing to offer guidance and advice on local attractions and I would strongly urge you to give this a try, you will be pleasantly surprised and impressed with the standards achieved. The value for money is unparalleled and certainly acts to encourage you to stay a little longer than you first thought of. We were sorry to have to leave this haven of peace and tranquility.
