This hotel is fabulous! The room is very newly renovated, modern and chic..The bed are very soft and comfortable. We felt very welcome upon checking in and the service is great! A nice choice and there are many restaurants just within walking distance from the hotel. Would definately recommend this hotel to anyone stopping over at Rotorua!

We had a lovely stay at the Regent, and all I can say is don't be put off by the external picture, inside is a whole different story. The rooms have been done up beautifully, very clean and comfortable. The hotel is close to everything you could want and away from the hotel "strip". Buddy was wonderful and very welcoming, all in all a great place to stay.

The website for the Regent states the hotel is where style, glamour and location meet. It doesn't quite live up to the hype. It's ok, but it's more Ikea than Hotel du Vin. That's not to say it's not very comfortable and reasonable value, it just doesn't quite deliver on what you expect from the website.

We stayed at Regent for one night in June, and on the whole enjoyed our stay. We were in a Studio Room, which was well appointed, quite modern, and stylish. During the time of our stay there were some signs of ongoing development work, but the price seemed to reflect the ongoing development and didn’t really impact on our stay.

The Regent is absolutely spot on when they say they are bringing glamour to Rotorua. This wonderful gem of a place offers luxury, glamour and all the comforts one would expect in fabulous accommodation. The rooms have been completely renovated and are gorgeous...be sure to book a suite, they are fantastic! Loads of space, great furnishings, fittings are high quality and just a fabulous space to sit and enjoy! While our visit was for leisure, the suite was well furnished with anything we would have needed had we been there on business. The bathroom is amazing, brand new and very sleek with lovely toiletries. Bed linens and towels have been carefully selected, are high quality and are luxurious to use! We stayed two nights and wished we could have stayed longer. "Restaurant Row" is literally 3 minutes walk away with a great choice of places to eat. The owners are delightful and it's obvious that they take great care in ensuring their guests have a wonderful stay. Thank you to the The Regent for offering a wonderful guest experience at amazing rates!! As far as we're concerned Rotorua is back on the map now that THE REGENT is there & when we go back, we won't stay anywhere else!!

This place is amazing. My partner had booked and warned me that this place was a motel. Well Im sure it was some time ago, now its just an absolute gem. Location is good with lots of eating options just 100 metres walk. The room itself is fabolous with a new big plasma and fantastic heating for the cold. Probably the highlight stay of our NZ driving trip. A must stay.

We found the Regent of Rotorua through pure luck on the internet. This was not what we were originally looking for. We had started out wanting a nice relaxing B & B or boutique hotel that included a large home cooked breakfast and not in central Rotorua. But after seeing the pictures of the Regent of Rotorua and reading reviews we had to give the hotel a go and were not disappointed.

It is a renovated motel which used to charge NZ$69/night and you would never know. They have done an amazing job and the rooms are amazing. They are decorated in a black and white theme and with high standard furniture, equipment and decor. The staff are friendly and helpful and make you feel very welcome, thank you Buddy. It is in the perfect location for Lake Rotorua, restaurants and bars. They are currently adding to this facililty, restaurant, additional rooms, new reception and this in no way disturbed us.

Try it - you won't be disappointed.
