I have nothing negative to share on this b & b...the owners couldn't be nicer, more accommodating or caring! The hotel is spotless, rooms are well appointed and very fresh. One can see the place is meticulously maintained and the food is upscale and delicious! It is a gem of a hotel and a excellent place to land...a fabulous b...

This place was such a pleasant surprise. It was so much more than we expected, from the service to the décor to the facilities. Staff and owners are so friendly, the rooms are lovely, modern, comfortable and very clean, and the in house restaurant is very highly rated in tripadvisor. It is also very centrally located, walking distance from everything...

We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. It is very quaint. It looked to be once a standard motel, that has been re-done beautifully. We stayed in a executive studio and loved it. Room isn't overly large, but was fine for the 3 nights. I believe they also have one and two bedroom rooms as well as the standard....

We stayed at the Regent for two nights in Rotorua. It was the nicest place we saw on line, and when checking in were greeted with super friendly staff and a wonderful place. The pool was awesome, the mineral spa was great, and the people who worked there were super helpful and very friendly The rooms were also nice. All...

We booked this hotel based on the really positive reviews on trip advisor and although there are lots of positives, it’s really nowhere near as good as the reviews make out. Essentially what you’re getting here is an inner city motel which has been modernized and rebranded as a boutique hotel. On the plus side, if you want to be...

A quirky but lovely hotel in a motel style. We stayed three nights in October. Great situation: we would walk down to the lake front each morning and it was very conveniently located for cafes and restaurants. Internal decor was amazing on a black and white theme, loved this. Hot thermal bath of 40 degrees plus actually got me into...

My husband and I were so happy to have booked here after driving past all of the chain motels as we arrived in Rotorua. The Regent is well-appointed, with modern finishings and decor. We were on our honeymoon and were upgraded to a suite, which was very spacious. The front desk staff was extremely helpful with dinner and activity reservations....

This was a very pleasant stay at the Regent. This establishment will remind Americans of a motel but is very centrally located within walking distance of the town center. The owners checked us in and helped us with our luggage and were otherwise very helpful and attentive. The rooms were clean and well appointed. Wi-fi reception was good. We had...

Rooms were nice but we had an upper deck one (access is outside stairway) and the stair is quite narrow for carting heavy bags. There was no-one to help us when we checked out and it was quite tricky carrying heavy suitcases between two of us. The room was ok and Wifi not too slow, the showers and toiletries were...
