Need opinion - "pungent odor" surrounding Regent of Rotorua"

I have been told it is best not to stay in 'downtown' Rotorua due to the pungent smell of the mud pools and geo thermal activity. I have never been to Rotorua and based on trip advisor reviews plan to stay at Regent of Rotorua this coming August. Does anyone know if the enjoyment of our stay will be 'compromised' by such smells around the Regent?

Thank you !

I actually struggled quite a lot with the smell, but my nose is quite sensitive to certain smells. I had been told that after the first night you don't notice it, but it seemed to be ingrained in everything we went to, and the next morning was just as bad as when we first arrived. Everyone is different though, so its really hard to say.
