“Fantastic”
Reviewed February 20, 2011

We stayed at the Regent of Rotorua and the service and room was absolutely wonderful. Darryn was super friendly and we always enjoyed talking with him and all the staff were sooooooo friendly and helpful. The hotel decor was so tasteful and unique and the room we had was fabulous, with all the amenities we liked. We would highly recommend this hotel to everyone, as you could not get better and friendlier service and accommodation anywhere else in lovely Rotura!! Thanks Darryn for a great stay!!

The team at Regent of Rotorua have hit the nail on the head in every way. Impeccable friendly service, perfectly clean, great location, beautifully appointed rooms, superb restaurant, comfortable outdoor space and pool area - and all for an excellent price! Did I mention the awesome team?
We felt totally at home from the moment we arrived. We were very early and hadn't slept for 2 days, but Darryn immediately had us checked in and relaxing. Every request or enquiry was dealt with efficiently and professionally throughout our week-long stay. We would have stayed longer if we could have, and can imagine a return trip to Rotorua just to stay here again.
Heartfelt thanks to Darryn, Brent and the whole Regent crew. A fantastic stay!

We only stayed for one night at this fabulous Hotel while visiting Rotorua and were very sad to check out so soon. This is a relatively new boutique hotel right in the main business area of Rotorua and just around the corner from the main restuarant area. It is also only a few minutes walk from the lake and the gardens where the hot pools are located.
The room was amazingly decorated with every modern facility and the bed can only be described as the most comfortable we have ever slept on in any hotel we have stayed in whilst travelling around the world.
We decided to eat in the hotel restaurant for dinner rather than try one of the many just around the corner and both meals were excellent as was the service. We also ate breakfast here as well and it was also very good a la carte.
We highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Rotorua as it is reasonably priced and we found no other accommodation in two weeeks travelling the North Island that came anywhere near it for quality.

What can we add to all the wonderful words that were already written? Darren and Brent have made our stay a dream comes true; nothing was too much or too difficult to fulfil. We have stayed in the new annex of the building in a studio room upstairs (no open windows!). We loved the royal black & white decor with a touch of lime to it. The mineral spa was a treat as well as the pool. We ate most of our meals there and enjoyed them all! Internet was complementary and so is the parking. We were sorry to leave and warmly recommend their kingdom to all. Good luck guys!

You must stay here if you're gonna be in Rotorua. We had an amazing stay. The rooms were very very chic and clean. We had dinner at the restaurant, it wasn't cheap, the food was good (fresh), but being from NY, I would only rate it 7/10. The service is really good - esp. Darren. He was just so helpful and was always there. This would be my regular hotel if they had one in Melbourne.

This was not my first stay in Rotorua, but it was certainly the best. The atmosphere everywhere in the hotel is simply superb and the level of service is top notch. Nothing is too much trouble. The hosts remain discrete at all times. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable and impeccably cleaned. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.
