Regal Palms 5 Star City Resort
Ranked #7 of 92 Hotels in Rotorua
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 February 2014 via mobile

Really large and spacious self contained apartment with large bathroom and small private garden area. All the amenities you'd expect but a little dated and definitely a motel feel. Friendly and efficient service and quiet location even though on the main drag. Good option and value for money

Stayed: February 2014, travelled as a couple

One in a long line of many motel-style hotels throughout Rotorua, but far from plain fare.

Our 2 night stay found the hotel to be perfectly suited for purpose: simply but well-furnished, well located on South side of town for easy access to local sights and with mini golf/tennis court/pool/gym for what little downtime you may have.

Free wifi and free overnight dvd rental a bonus.

Staff were all helpful and polite and surprisingly, room was cleaned daily.

This resort was in an excellent location along the main strip in Rotorua and about a 1km away from Te Puia. The room was very comfortable, clean and spacious. The staff were very accommodating. This resort offers a heated pool, mini golf, free dvd rentals, free parking etc. Good value for money.

We had three great days at this motel.
They really have thought of everything down to the lovely fluffy dressing gowns. The pool is lovely and warm and very clean. The rooms are very modern and beautifully kept. They do not have a restaurant but we had a cooked breakfast delivered to the room and it was very good.

We have stayed at quite a few hotels during our trip to New Zealand and this was by far the best.

We were very happy with our stay at the Regal Palms
Did write a private email to thank our hosts ? Maybe it went to spam ?
We would be happy to recommend this reasonably priced accommodation .
We requested a Kitchen unit with separate bathroom and en suite and two bedrooms - preferably with a queen bed in each . We made this request when we rang to book .
What we did end up with was everything we asked for except the second queen size bed .
Instead there were two single beds in the second bedroom - Luckily our friends were understanding .
I would presume it would have been a family unit hence the two single beds in the second room.

We spent one night here, the staff were very helpful, the rooms quite newly decorated, clean the tasteful. With all the necessary facilities provided for.
By comparison to other motels we had stayed in around the North Island in the same week, it was good value, for the high standard provided.
I would stay there again when visiting Rotorua, as a first choice.
