We stayed at Regal Palms with our family and had a one bedroom unit very close to our family who had a 2 bedroom unit. Both were well appointed, clean and had excellent towels and bed linen. The 2 bedroom unit had a washing machine and both had clothes airers. Both had small kitchens to prepare meals. Parking was right...

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. A great place to stay, near everything. It also has a pool and mini golf, and free parking. I thoroughly recommend staying here.

I'm not sure why I chose this hotel but so glad I did. First off, Rotorua is lined with lodging establishments. and how one picks one is beyond me. They all look very dreary in photos and not much better from a quick drive down the street. In the US we call the Regal Palms a motel yet I have...

We saw lots of places around $150 per night but thought we'd spend the extra $50 and try this place out given its good reviews and ratings. While it didn't exceed our expectations it did meet them comfortably so we were happy.

I'm not a huge fan of Rotorua. My wife and I went to the Polynesian Lake Spa after a long day of hiking, and were not impressed. There is a cool area with several restaurants in the "downtown" area, but if the reason for going is the Spa, I would recommend skipping it. The Regal Palms made up for the...

We are all very happy with this hotel. The rooms are very large. The bathroom is bigger than the last hotel room we stayed in while driving through this beautiful country. Large jetted tub, big shower. Bed is very comfortable, with lovely crisp sheets. Kitchen area with table. It's only downfall is it is far from the lake where all...

The location was close to a lot of food options and the Te Puia exhibit. The room was clean and large enough with a mini kitchenette option available. There are dvds for your rental convenience in the lobby, as well as a mini golf course and heated pool. Upon our check in, we had a tiny basket with milk and...
