After moving hotel from the night before we couldn't even compare the difference! The Regent was fabulous from Service to Room to Breakfast - no discussion next time, we'd stay at the Regent again :)

This is our 2nd stay at the Regent of Rotorua and we won't stay anywhere else when visiting Rotorua. We have consistently experienced quality rooms, quality sleep, and outstanding customer service. The decor is very tasteful and stylish with thoughtful and modern amenities.

But, what actually catapults this hotel ahead of all of the others is... the Regent's wonderful hosts Darryn and Brent and the level of customer service they deliver. In fact every staff member has always been very welcoming, helpful, friendly and happy to assist any way they can. This is a wonderful hotel and my family of 4 generations gives this 5 stars!

Myself and my partner booked for two nights and loved it so much, we stayed a third. We didnt eat anywhere else as the food was outstanding, top marks to the chef!
Darryn and Brent are truely adorable and make you feel so welcome and not just a customer, they really make you feel at home. The rooms are beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. We look forward to staying again.

We booked the hotel from the look of the website but wasn't sure exactly what to expect.
Upon our arrival we were blown away from the genuine hospitality and amazing warmth we felt from both the hotel and staff.
The room totally exceeded all of our expectations with an attention to detail through every aspect and need.
This also followed through to our dining experience and a great night at the bar!
We soon found there actually was nowhere even in town that came close in terms of ambiance, food, and price.
We would recommend this place to all :)

You would be silly to stay anywhere else!!! From the moment we walked in I felt right at home, the staff are amazing!!! We stayed three nights with our 1 year old daughter and the team at the Regent where so helpful and accommodating. The suggested child friendly activities and made amazing coffee. We will be staying again!

Being greeted by such a large smile instantly made me like this place! They were so friendly and helpful. We got to Rotorua early to organise our activities in the area, however when we checked in, a few minutes of talking with Darryn and he got everything booked for us and saved us running all over town. The rooms were fabulous with lots of lovely touches. We also ate in the restaurant one night and I have to say that it was one of the best meals that we had in the whole of NZ. Lovely pork belly... oh and fabulous cocktails too!

I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
Darryn and his partner were exceptionally friendly and efficient, managed to get us into a sold out show and were absolute stars. the rooms are not big but cleverly designed to include a decent sixed tv, mini bar, chairs, spotless and large en suite; all done is black and white with a splash of green. We had breakfast twice- great menu and fantastic presentation. pool area modern and well organised, heated pool was quiet and sunlit.
An absolute gem- the hosts are friendly and very charming to all!
