We booked the Millennium on-line based on its location and star rating. We did get a very good on-line deal. Location in Rotorura is excellent – only a short walk to most things and Polynesian Spa is immediately behind the Millennium. We arrived to a very warm and informative welcome which was nice considering we were a little tired from... More

Stayed here for 3 days for recent conference. The hotel has been the same for many years now and is in need of a revamp.

This is one of the best hotel in New Zealand, clean and tidy, location is very central. We had an enjoyable and very pleasant experience with the staff so friendly, helpful and caring. The Nikau Restaurant offers scrumptious meals at a very reasonable and affordable prices. I would not have second thoughts in recommending the hotel with family and friends.

What is it about the New Zealand economy that has transpired into its hotels’ Club Levels becoming so frugal and mean? Having stayed at Club Levels around the world where 4-hour happy hours with enough volume and variety of canapés (that you don’t need to go out for dinner) are commonplace, it seems that’s no longer the case at the...

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay and I'm sorry you felt the Club lounge offer was not adequate. We do vary the selection of evening snacks to try and accommodate most tastes. Breakfast is a continental selection but should also have included sliced melons and fresh fruit so I apologise if this was not available. Your feedback... More

Just spent a couple of nights here attending a conference. Location is good - restaurants etc all within walking distance. Rooms a bit small and dated but clean and well-equipped. Service very friendly and helpful.

This is one of the greatest hotels we have ever stayed in. We could not find anything wrong with this place. The staff was pleasant and meet us at the front door to take our luggage.

My wife and I had spent the night from hell at an adjoining major hotel...with a hot stuffy room and noise from departing and arriving guests going on until 2am.

This hotel is next door to the Polynesian Baths so there is a constant sulphur smell which you get used to quite quickly. We were not told at time of booking that the spa was closed for renovation so this was really disappointing. The restaurant is very average with poor hygiene standards. Cutlery you do not use is taken away... More
