“Great rooms and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

Great little hotel located in the heart of Rotorua. My wife and I enjoyed the cozy room with free wifi . The bathroom was huge and the shower was fantastic. I would highly recommend this room if you are traveling as a couple and want to stay in downtown Rotorua. The staff went above and beyond and we felt they really rolled out the red carpet for us and it is hard to put a price on that sort of service.

We stayed 2 nights here on our first visit to Rotorua. The hotel is classy and chic and the bed extremely comfortable. The bathroom was a really good size with dual sinks and a lovely walk in shower.

On arrival the duty manager Darryn was probably the best front of house person I have had to deal with ever and made us very welcome and provided us with all the information we needed to get the most out of our brief visit to the town,

All in all I would recommend this hotel to anyone, it is central to the downtown area and lakeside. Perfect position in the town!

Room Tip: We opted for the executive studio room….

This is an excellent little boutique hotel perfect for those who enjoy the quirkiness of staying at different properties. We really enjoyed the decor, the comfortable bed, and the friendly staff. We had not considered the location when booking this hotel, but ended up loving that we could walk to the lake and several restaurants from here even though we also had a car with us. We ate breakfast both mornings of our stay at the hotel and it was delicious.

Was most impressed with our stay and could not find any faults if we tried. The check in staff were super friendly and beyond helpful, going out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had all the information we needed to enjoy our time in Rotorua. The rooms are well furnished and very trendy. The thermal pool is the perfect way to relax after a long day exploring, with towels available from reception. Also a bonus in that the Regent is only a short walk to 'eat street' and a lot of restaurants.
Upon leaving the staff once again went above and beyond collecting the bags, taking them to our car and ensuring we knew the way to our next location.
On service alone this place is 5 stars!!

We had a pleasant stay here. The hotel is well located for exploring Rotorua. The staff very friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable, we enjoyed a soak in the lovely deep bath. An extra blanket in the room would have been nice as we were a little cool overnight. We would certainly stay again.

Hard to imagine a better hotel. We had a lovely family suite - spacious elegant, fun and comfortable. There is easy parking, an outside pool and a mineral pool. The restaurant is good, the service is outstanding and it is right in the heart of town. There is no reason to stay anywhere else unless you are backpacker looking for a dorm!

This review is mainly based around the exceptional service we received from Darryn. First the rooms are comfortable. The location is very central to a variety of eateries. The hotel has its own hotpool to soak in. But what made our visit special was Darryn. I believe he would have to the best person I have ever dealt with in any Hotel we have ever travelled to anywhere in the world. He is an asset to the business. We were made to feel so welcome, nothing was too much effort. We was always smiling, had many suggestions for places to visit without being pushy or salesy. He even offered suggestions for us on depature for our next destination -Auckland. Sometimes when we stay in Boutique Hotels the staff can be rather snobby as they generally deal with business folk more than holiday makers. Not here, all the staff were lovely, but we would return again just for Darryn. Thanks for the great experience
