“Can definately recommend this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

Just returned home after spending 4 nights at The Regent of Rotorua. This hotel has been brought into the 21st century with a very stylish makeover. The rooms are beautiful with sumptuos mirrors and curtains and lovely large shower rooms. The court yard with its tables and chairs and pool are a real sun trap and a great spot to relax with a drink or a meal. Mine hosts are most affable and nothing is a bother. Would you believe one of our party had some raw Bluff Oysters and the chef cooked them up for us in a flash on request! Sevice above and beyond. We did not use the .restaurent but it looked great and was well patronized we noted. Wonderful spot well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Ground floor units that open onto the courtyard are sunny and give you an extra dimension to your st...

Have stayed here a couple of times and the service that you got is very good. The décor in the room is very cool. Good location as the majority of restaurants aren't that far. Gave it 4 stars though as it still has that motel feel looking from the outside

What a great place to stay! The room was beautifully decorated with an extremely modern decor. The lovely Front Desk was always smiling and always there to help! It was also conveniently located to many restaurants in town...We will be back the next time we're in Rotorua!

We stayed here for three nights and had a wonderful time. Great, easy to locate, with many restaurants and the bathhouse (museum) within walking distance. Plenty of off street parking available.

The management has taken an older motel and completely revamped it into a quirky, unique, luxury place. We had a two bedroom apartment, with a small living room, a twin room and a room with a queen bed and a spacious bathroom. Everything was very new and very clean. There was a small kitchenette with a fridge and microwave I believe, but as I recall no hob. It was perfect for breakfast and pre-dinner cheese and crackers. The restaurant looked really good, but we ate elsewhere. It was warm, and we appreciated that we could use the heat pump as a cooler (don't know if it was AC or evaporative, but it did cool the room nicely). We tend to wilt in the heat, so this was really an important bonus. The decorations are all black and white, and reminded me of 1970 contemporary, but there were bright splashes of green, such as a soft throw on the bed and even a small green teddy bear on the bed.

The concierge/front desk person was really outstanding. Better than most i-site people in helping to plan our day. He found out we had tickets to an evening cultural event and arranged for transportation to and from our hotel. He made many good suggestions for things to do on a rainy day. He was sympathetic when we were tired and just wanted to sleep. He was concerned that the noise from a nearby concert might bother us and asked if we'd like to go. The noise was not loud, and didn't bother us but it was nice of the management to be concerned and solicitous. It also alerted us to the opportunity to see a great fireworks display from the parking lot. I rarely give five star reviews, but Regency earned one.

Really good room however a little on the small side and no facilities to speak of other than a fridge. Very good though and highly recommended. Looked after by Brent and Warren, I think, both really helpful.

Very handy location. Clean and tidy, very friendly and enthusiastic staff. We'll lit car park. My room was downstairs beside the car park and near the road. No problem with the noise and very easy access.

From the hotel you can walk to the Lake in 5 minutes and there is a good choice of restaurants just around the corner. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the decor is modern. The pool looked inviting but we didn't have time to try it. But best of all was the warm friendly welcome and help from Darryl and Brent.
