We recently stayed for 2 nights here in late January. The reception we received was very friendly with the staff doing all that they could to make us feel welcome and relaxed. The hotel and restaurant were both very good with a very professional yet informal atmosphere. The service we received throughout just added to what was a very pleasurable stay in Rotoruua.

We stayed here for 3 nights in December (sorry for the late review) and it was a great experience. We had a 2 bed 2 bath suite which had everything we needed (even a kitchen area). The food in the hotel was delicious and the service was great. Darryn and his team couldn't have done enough for us, which we put to the test when we left our passports behind! I'm not sure any other hotel would have made such an effort. I would definately stay again and recommend it to anyone travelling to Rotorua.

We stayed here twice- a week apart, The first time we were met with excellent check in and service and the meal in the restaurant was very good.
The second time we checked in management remembered our first names,where we had been and -this one really impressed me- what beer I liked :)
All staff went out of their way to assist and were exceptionally attentive. Nothing was too much trouble.
I loved the rooms and the decor, they are unique in a sea of very bland motels.
Love to return soon.

Room Tip: If you have heavy luggage the bottom floors are probably best.

This motel is run by a couple of mincers with great charm and efficiency. It provides adequate accommodation for a night or two. Poor quality toiletries are a let down. The restaurant is very good and it's best to eat here as some of the other eateries in Rotorua are dire.

Stayed overnight. Room (2-bed/2-bath) was very comfortable and good value, aircon in each room with individual controls. Even had Sky TV in the main sitting room! Great location for the lakeside and parks, also for local restaurants and bars. If I was in the area again I'd stay here happily.

I was deeply impressed by this place. We arrived after 9.00 pm, tired and hungry after a long drive from Auckland, and were told that the kitchen was still open if we wanted to eat there or they could recommend other restaurants nearby, Having settled into our suite - two bedrooms and two bathrooms, all immaculate and very comfortable - we chose to eat in the hotel and had a really good meal at a very reasonable price. Breakfast the following day was also excellent - when I asked when breakfast finished, the answer was 3.30pm! None of this 10.00 am nonsense. The quality of the service by the staff and the owners was outstanding. Advice and information was pressed upon us with great charm. This little hotel is an object lesson in how to run and deliver superb customer service in a small hotel. Other hoteliers would do well to go there and send their staff there as a training exercise to see how it should be done.

Perfect stay! We stayed at Regent of Rotorua for four nights and and very happy with the stay. The location is perfect, right next to "Eat Streat" (yup, that's how they spell it!) and a block away from the mall and city centre.

The rooms were good, spacious, well arranged, and very functional. The best part about the hotel is quallity of recommendations on what to do and what not to do. The person who runs the place (I am missing his name) knows exactly where one needs to spend time, enenrgy and money on, to have a great trip in Rotorua.

The parking space within the hotel compound is ample and free, which is a plus.
