“Excellent hotel and service ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014 via mobile

The Regent was incredibly welcoming. The entire staff - especially Darryn and Brent at the front desk - were helpful, friendly, and always there when you needed them. The decor was very nice, clearly professionally done, and the rooms were comfortable and spacious. The showers had great water pressure, the beds were soft, and the details in the design were lovely. Overall, had a wonderful stay!

This lovely boutique hotel is located conveniently in town, around the corner from a nice selection of restaurants. I also highly recommend the restaurant at the hotel - menu, food and service were excellent. I am sorry that my family and I only stayed one night. we would definitely return.

While it bills itself as a boutique hotel, it is really a dressed up motel. We paid for a deluxe room and got two tiny beds. While the building is unimaginative, the service is five-star. Everyone we interacted with was exceptionally helpful. It has a pool and restaurant. It has a spa, but this is just a small hot pool. For the money you could probably do better, but you won’t go wrong staying here.

We felt welcomed as soon as we got the Regent. The room was very nice and clean. Bed was very confortable. Quiet hotel in a perfect location. Darryn was always available to give us tips on what to do and where to eat. The restaurant was also very good and staff were very attentive. A perfect 10 for us.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Regent. It is a charming place full of details provided to make you feel at home. Extremely clean rooms, free high quality wifi, well located, very nice staff willing to provide everything you need and even more. Would stay there in every visit to Rotorua.

We (couple and 22 yr old daughter) stayed here in Jan 2014. Stayed in remodeled 2br suite. Well decorated, appointed and spotless. Real gem was the restaurant and Darryn at the front desk. He took care of all tours and arrangements. 5 star service. The best.

We stayed 2 nights over New Year. From check in, and Darryn's helpful advice on what to do & where to go, to the high quality of the accommodation & evening meal on New Years Eve which was excellent, made our stay extremely enjoyable.
We would recommend the Regent to anyone who wants to use this as base to visit the Rotorua area.
