The title is somewhat literal for this hotel too as we ended up here by chance. We had to change travel plans and ended up coming back to Rotorua without any accommodation booked. This proved to be more of a problem than we thought it would and we toured round the town looking for a room, only to be told that they were all booked by a selection of sympathetic (very few) or snooty (nearly all) reception staff at the other hotels.
Just as we were about to leave the town, we came across the Regent. First impressions were of an American style motel but don't judge on first impressions. The inside is clean, modern and welcoming. Darryn on the front desk was a breath of fresh air - so welcoming, helpful and probably one of the most friendly members of staff in any hotel I have stayed in. I cannot praise this man enough (he even remembered our names when we came to breakfast the next morning).
We ended up in the last room they had available but it was fantastic. The bed was extremely comfortable, it was clean, well equipped with a kettle and a cafetiere, Sky TV and free Wifi. Exactly what you want from a hotel. We stayed for breakfast the next morning which was very tasty and good value for money. When we come back to Rotorua, we will not be staying anywhere else.
