When in Rotarua stay here. Very modern and clean, great staff and perfectly located. First impressions are that this hotel is well managed. By all measures, this is a great hotel..good bed, shower, generous size rooms and very competent reception staff.

My husband and I spent a month in New Zealand recently. Of all the places we stayed, this has to be our favorite. Darrin and Brent were so great! Offered so many ideas on things to do in the area and even converted our US dollars into NZ a dollars! The rooms were very nice - recently underwent a total...

I admit to being a bit fearful about our stay here - the pictures I had reviewed prior to our arrival made it look like a spruced-up Motel 6. I couldn't have been more wrong. Sure, the exterior layout may be familiar, but our room was spacious and lovely, and the service was exceptional. The lobby was also done in...

From the outside the Regent looks like a below average cheap motel.inside, it has been very dramatically upgraded and uniquely decorated.. The reception is very gracious and extremely friendly. The two owners are committed to exceptional service and are attentive to every...

This hotel has a very funky setup with cool decor in the rooms, massive showers, comfy beds and access to an on site thermal bath and a heated outdoor pool. Walking distance to anywhere - food, bars and the Polynesian Spa. The staff are very friendly and helpful - a perfect place to stay in Rotorua!

We stopped at the regent over Christmas in 2014 on our way down to the South Island. Before we got there, we were in contact with Darryn, the owner, who was simply delightful and willing to answer any of our questions. Upon arrival, the staff kept Darryn's tone and was extremely helpful to answer questions. The rooms were nicely appointed...

Upon arriving at this chic and glamorous hotel, you feel like you're taken back in time to a mid-century elegant motel. The two gentlemen at the front desk (owners/operators) are magnificent. Customer service is their #1 priority and are most welcoming. After being personally escorted to our room, we walked into a cozy and beautifully decorated room. The mono-tone colors...

We only stayed one night on our way through Rotorua down to the South Island, but this little hotel was excellent. Right from the check-in it had a really good feel.
