We had read all the great reviews on here before we booked, and I can only say that the hotel exceeded our expectations. Firstly, yes there was building work on site (which when it is finished in the next weeks, will make this place unbelievable), but if you are in Rotorua to sit in your room between 8 - 3 then you will have missed out anyway, and we were not inconvenienced in the slightest by the noise, although we had appartment 7 next to the site.
To start with, Darren and Brent were fantastic hosts, Darren in particular going out of his way to make the stay as perfect as he could. His reccommendations for restaurants was spot on, and we had some of the best meals of our trip while there. Nothing was too much trouble, and his advice and the speed with which he managed to book us any trips we wanted was second to none. The location was excellent too, with all the main restaurants within a minute's walk, the lake just 5 minutes down the road, and the main spas within walking distance too. Finally, the rooms were spotless, they looked stunning, with plasmas in lounge and bedroom, walk in showers, large baths, comfy beds and chic furnishings to finish it off. When the work is finished on the hotel, there will also be a pool which will really add further value to a terrific hotel.
Thanks again to the Regent for a fantastic stay while on our honeymoon and I would reccommend this hotel wholeheartedly over the bigger chain hotels in Rotorua.
