Very tastefully decorated reception area and rooms. Nice comfy bed and shower. Happy with pretty much everything. Reception was very helpful in booking tours and even taxi. Good location, close to everything. They even have a pool and a sauna but didn't get to try them. Good find from the tripadvisor. Definitely worth a stay! You will not disappoint.

Great place to stay. Quiet, perfect location and well equipped.

It is just steps away from all the main eatiries and only a few more steps to the lake.

The rooms were plush,warm, spacious and quiet.

We had breakfast at the hotel in the morning and it was delicous. Great selection on the menu.

Would definitely stya here again.

My wife and I travelled to Rotorua on our honeymoon. Haveing splurged in Queenstown before arriving in the North Island, we were looking to save a little money yet still have a level of comfort befitting a honeymoon.
Having seen the reviews and pictures on Tripadvisor, I thoughrt that I was onto a good thing when I booked 3 nights at Regent of Rotorua. Let me say I was completely right!
What a great place. Darren and Brent, (the owners) simply could not do enough for us. They were probably the best hosts of any any accomodation I have even visited and I have seen many. Their attention to detail, warmth and assistance was above and beyond the norm. The rooms were spotless, really well done and very fuctional. The location of the place is just right as well. Their breakfasts we easily the best I have had anywhere. We are not talking about bacon, eggs and coffee here....more like gourmet tasty breakfasts with excellent coffee, served quickly and with a smile by the owners of the place. The whole place has been renovated and is so sheik. We are hard to impress but the guys that own the Regent have really put some thought intto this place and fromn the staff to the bath, we were blown away. A great place for families and loved up couples alike. Highly reccomended and we will be back. - that's for sure

Although I don't think that I'm that much of a fan of the style of decor, rooms at this hotel have been fitted out to the highest standard. At least it is more interesting than staying at a bog standard motel or chain hotel. Staff were extremely helpful. The hotel has it's own thermal pool.
This hotel isn't super value, but it definitely isn't a ripoff.

Our trip to New Zealand was probably one of our lesser organized trips, and arriving to Rotorua, we had no reservations for a hotel. Driving into town we immediately headed to the shores of the lake to find one hotel was booked, and one had a room, but wasn't for what we were looking. We went to the I-Site to see what information we could glean for other hotels in the area, and we saw the brochure for the Regent. I remember seeing positive reviews on TA and we decided to give it a shot.

We were very happy we picked the Regent. The front desk staff (Devin??) was great! Very helpful (but who isn't in NZ?!), funny and knowledgable of the area and attractions. The room was nice #8 if my memory serves me, and was on the second floor. The bed was comfy, the room was spacious, and they offer Free WiFi for guests. the Bathroom was well appointed.

If you decide to stay here, hopefully you like white. It is rather contemporary in its decor and while we were staying there, they were in the midst of rennovations. After the rennovations are through they will have a Pool, resteraunt and additional rooms.

They also have a Backpacker area/rooms for those that wish to take advantage of the more "rustic" accomodations.

i was a bit disconcerted when i was on my way to rotorua bcos the tour bus driver (who drives a bus from auckland to rotorua, via waitomo) had no idea where this hotel was - but it turned out to be a hidden gem. a new-ish hotel, right in the heart of rotorua, i had a lovely room w little touches like plug converters in the room, yummy toiletries, a radio w an ipod attachment. a table and chair will be put right outside your room on the veranda, so that u can sit out there and enjoy the sunshine and some tea. the staff was really helpful and sweet, and had some wonderful suggestions for places to visit, attractions etc, which they also helped me book. one suggestion: a fan in the rooms would be nice.
