We travelled to Rotorua on an whim so we didn’t have a booking or knew anything about the hotels in the area. We saw Regal Palms and we thought it looked nice so we decided to stay for a couple of nights. We really enjoyed the place. Yes, as other reviewers have mentioned, it obviously used to be a motor lodge, but so what? It was very nicely polished and the rooms were of a very good standard. Far better, nicer, cleaner, etc than any motor lodge I’ve stayed at.
Some minor issues, the pool could do with a bit of a revamp – some tiles chipped/missing, and on close inspection, pool looks a bit tired. Same with the mini-golf court (would be nice if they would remove all the broken putts). Also, the woman at reception that checked us in was a bit.. bland for a lack of a better word. Not really smiling or happy that we decided to stay with them and $400 in their pocket. But the gentleman that handled our checkout was great! Very friendly and helpful.
So despite some tiny hiccups, overall still a good place. We would definitely stay again!
