This review is mainly based around the exceptional service we received from Darryn. First the rooms are comfortable. The location is very central to a variety of eateries. The hotel has its own hotpool to soak in. But what made our visit special was Darryn. I believe he would have to the best person I have ever dealt with in...

Darryn & his team made it for us. The room was excellently furnished with an amazing bathroom (love the underfloor heating!) and the location perfect for walking to restaurants. They gave us lots of ideas of what to do whilst we were there. The most important thing was that I felt like they really cared that we enjoyed our trip....

We stayed two nights. Comfortable beds and nice linens made good sleeping so much better. The hosts were exceptionally helpful. The location is perfect. We ate breakfast which was very good. There were plenty of outlets for charging devices. On top of all is a great sense of style.

I recently stayed at the Regent of Rotorua with my granddaughter and we were both extremely pleased. The location of the hotel was great. The hotel was decorated tastefully with our comfort in mind. I would highly recommend the restaurant - the food was superb. But what made our experience so memorable was the service. Darryn became our guardian angel...

Based almost entirely on the fantastic Trip Advisor reports we decided to book one night with Regent. We were not disapointed. First--the photographs you see are NOT carefully doctored shots as you can see elsewhere but actual true reflections of the place. Second -on the first phone call to book the questions asked by brent clearly showed experience and that...

I'm not going to say this hotel is perfect. Perfection is so subjective. But this hotel is one of the very best I've stayed in. The rooms we had were charming in a boutique style, well appointed and extremely comfortable. The food was excellent, really excellent. The lamb, beef and chicken were of the very best quality. Fantastic breakfasts. The...

We stayed here as it looked really good in the photos and it had so many good reviews already. From check in I knew why they were so good - the place looks lovely, its spotless and the proprietors and staff are all genuinely pleased to be of assistance. I found Darryn and Brent to be lovely hosts and I...

Great boutique Hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. Perfect location, very central to the town and walking distance to the night life and landmarks and lovely amenities. Food was great in the restaurant. I would go back to Rotorau just to stay at the Regent.

We really enjoyed our stay at Regent of Rotorua. The rooms were extremely warm (important because the air temperature outside was very cold!) and there was obviously a lot of thought and effort which went into the decor (quite flamboyant) and the room amenities (including a microwave, plates and cutlery). The managers were very helpful and jolly. We would stay...

We love the Regent! From the chic decor to the excellent service and recommendation, we cannot recommend it highly enough. The location is perfect - you can walk to anything in the city center. Make sure to use their onsite mineral soaking pool(s) and cuddle up in their ultra soft bathrobes (truth: we even bought one to take home). The...
