In terms of service and imagination I would give this five and of five - the owners, who are regularly at the front desk are extremely knowledgable and attentive - absolutely outstanding. The rooms while small are extremely comfortable with a lot of care and thought put into the fit out, and were very quiet at night (which was great...

The place to stay in Rotorua. Driving up to this place (looks like a motel that has been converted and massively upgraded) we thought we had overpaid but boy we were wrong. The rooms are very well furnished and includes extras like a microwave. The staff are amazing and amongst the best we had ever encountered. Darryn who you will...

My Fellow Wanderers, want a cosmopolitan stay in ahhh.... well... a pungent town? The Regent certainly adds panache to a town that is thermal and quaint. Yes, there is a smell. Yes it does smell like eggs (sometimes rotten and sometimes just a bit poached). HOWEVER, get over it. The earth is boiling in Rororua. Literally, the mud bubbles everyone...

I work in a high end boutique hotel, and as a result am very picky about accomodation when traveling. This hotel met all of my expectations and then some! In fact my Husband and I were traveling around the rest of New Zealand, and we kept saying that we wanted to return to the Regent because none of the other...

Really! Had read the reviews, checked out their website. Looked somewhat like a duded up last mid century no tell motel. So was somewhat apprehensive on check-in, but they were indeed more than advertised, it was great. Large rooms, each with its own remote controlled heat pump and flat screen. Great design sense in black and white with a touch...

What a beautiful find in Rotorua. We went as a big family group and had a great time.The decor is sumptuous, much nicer than many 5 star international hotels. Our 2 bedroom was huge I never wanted to leave. The staff were all really friendly and helpful in the relaxed kiwi way. The food both dinner and breakfast absolutely delicious...

I agree with the other reviewer who said not to judge a book by its cover. When you enter, this is really a cute little boutique hotel. It's not that it looks bad from the outside - it's fine. You will just like the inside even more. The rooms are comfortable but it is the service that really sets it...

I normally don't review places if I don't have any constructive comments, but this hotel needs to be commended on its fantastic service, rooms and location. What a great stay. Theyve made a patron for life. The food was incredible, the service was friendly, Internet was fast and free, the location was great - just a short walk to the...

Spent 2 nights in the hotel. Beautiful decoration and very modern. Lovely pool! Had breakfast in the hotel. Food was great! Wished we had another night so we could have tried the restaurant for dinner. Would definitely stay again. Will recommend to friends and family.

Our great experience started from when I emailed The Regent of Rotorua to make a booking. They were very helpful and friendly. When we arrived we were greeted by super friendly and helpful front of house. The place is beautiful and clean. The restaurant was fabulous, great service and yummy food.
