“What a wonderful surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

This place does not look like much from the outside but you will be overwhelmed with the beauty of your room and the care and kindness of this staff. From the girl from the Germany who tended bar and told us about a great seal viewing stop on our way to Kaikorua to the forint desk who gave us great tour suggestions, this is a 5 star place! The place has been remodeled and very tastefully done, including the dining area. There is plenty to do within walking distance and the service is just top rate. We feel this was one of our best stays in our 17 days in New Zealand. Absolutely the best service!

• Location: in the heart of Rotorua, within walking distance to the main sights in the centre. However still quite location.
• The hotel is a fully renovated motel style boutique hotel. Nice décor. Nice terrace with a small outdoor pool. Nice Bar /Restaurant with good choice
• Room: very nice 2-bedroom apartment, luxuriously furnished. Only negative point: in the smaller bedroom the space for clothes is a bit limited.
• Owner are very friendly and client-oriented, they really do whatever they can to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
• The staff is very friendly and helpful.
• I would consider it is the best option in Rotorua!

A superb hotel. First class, friendly staff and a beautiful room. On checking in, we were given a comprehensive run down of all the worthwhile sights to visit during our stay.
The room was beautifully furnished with bright, modern decor and well appointed, with a separate day room and bedroom.
Although we didn't try the pool (no time) it looked very inviting.
Our New Zealand itinerary was tight and this is one of those hotels were you don't really want to check out of.

Room Tip: Any room would suit.

The Regent of Rotorua is a hip "motel" in the center of town. The rooms are mini-suites, decor is modern and lovely, and the service was excellent. Plunger coffee, free WiFi, and free parking. Would definitely recommend.

Rotorua is the heartland of New Zealand Maori culture and this boutique hotel is the perfect place to stay!! We stayed in a two bedroom suite for 1 night on a room only basis. The hotel is one of the most surprising places to stay having been converted from a plain motel to the most luxurious and stylish boutiques near to the town. There is a thermal pool and the most brilliant restaurant. A wonderful place to have a drink and then eat. The owners and staff were charming and helpful. I personally cannot fault it at all and thoroughly enjoyed our all too brief stay.

Room Tip: I can recommend a two bedroom suite if there are four of you. It has an en-suite as well as a bathro...

We spent 2 nights at this nice and convenient hotel 21/23 November. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel in general and our room in particular was very clean. Located close to the lake and town centre it has lots going for it.
