My wife and thee children stayed at the Regent recently and had the best experience. From the outset the staff were friendly and helpful and seemed so genuine. The accommodation is excellent and nothing is a problem for the staff. The food and service is also excellent. The rooms are very clean and stylish. Everything appeared to be catered for....

You notice that customer relation and customer Service is important to the owners! We just entered the Hotel and just felt so welcomed at that place! Even with a small child of 11 month!! The Baby cot was already settled (which is not normal I can tell you ...) - they remembered our Name directly without looking at the Reservation...

Initially booked for two nights and ended staying four nights. Why move on? This establishment has it all. Professional in every way - staff were warm and welcoming, assisted in any way possible over the entire duration of our stay. Rooms were delightful and oh so comfortable - we needed for nothing. Dining room choices and food preparation and presentation...

This place is unique to Rotorua. It's beauty and the owner's dedication to their guests make it a "not to be missed" for us. We had a wonderful dinner but most important to us was how Darryn was able to make sure our weather delayed trip to White Island got rescheduled the next day.

Love it! Looks like Regent of Rotorua just blew everyone else out of the water with a very fresh concept, very well-executed. On a wet weekend, with everything else looking a bit dismal, we were delighted to be welcomed into the warmth & designer style of Regents, and to have all our needs met with care. I had made a...

My second stay at the Regent I loved it the first time and it's still fantastic as ever... The room was outstanding with everything you could ask for and so was the dinner I had in the restaurant too. Darryn had to juggle my booking around the week before as my plans had changed this was done with no hesitation...

First impression on arrival is that this looked like it has once been a motel. That may be so but the Regent left its basic structure behind a long time ago. Comfortable rooms, we had a one bedroom unit, but its the owners, the staff and in particular the food that is brilliant. We will definitely stay again if we...

We booked the Regent after my wife read nothing but good reviews on Trip Adviser. The reviews were correct!!! We traveled with two kids of pre - teen age and booked the two Bedroom unit. The decor and finishings are excellent and make you feel you are staying in a chique newly renovated apartment. Although not large the pool is...

We stayed twice at this wonderful boutique hotel during our visit to New Zealand. The owners and multilingual staff provided excellent professional friendly service during our stay. The decor is eye catching throughout the facility and the bed was one of the most comfortable we have experienced while travelling worldwide. The food was inspired and beautifully presented. Would definitely stay...
