A slightly corporate feel when we checked in, but staff were very friendly and personally showed us to our upstairs room with balcony. Lovely views over the lake and beyond greeted us whilst tea making facilities initiated a quick cuppa enjoyed on comfy balcony furniture. Our room was clean, comfortable and compact with everything we needed. A nicely fitted bathroom,... More

It is always a pleasure visiting Taupo and taking in the views of the lake and mountains in the distance, which are truly stunning. We visit there a lot and recently decided to make the Millennium Hotel our wedding venue. Using the jetty for our ceremony and hotel restaurant for the reception, we were very lucky to have the Hotel's... More

Driving into Taupo was a little disappointing as we were trying to find a picturesque town ... but no, nothing like that, but the Lake was beautiful! The Millenium is situated at the far end of the town and look very insignificant when you approach it from the road. However, when we were shown to our room - I booked... More

Dear lorenzo01, thank you for sharing your experience with us and readers.

We spent two nights at the Millennium booked into a junior queen - i.e. a small suite with an extensive living area and separate bedroom with a very comfortable queen bed. It had a large bathroom with several kinds of shower. Best of all, it was on the ground floor and was a few feet from Lake Taupo, with just... More

Dear notacouchpotato - thank you for sharing the good with the not so good. We appreciate hearing about any improvements needed and assure you we are addressing the noisy blind.

We were initially disappointed that the Hotel was so far from town but the location was good in other respects and taxis were reasonable. Our room was excellent with a balcony overlooking the lake and a table & chairs for those sundowners. The room is extremely well furnished with tea and coffee facilities but no breakfast bowls and cutlery. The... More

Wonderful location right on the lakeside and ground floor rooms have direct access to the lake just a few paces away. Sunset was stunning. Location was so good we felt with hindsight we could have stayed 2 or more nights and done a day trip to Rotorua from here rather than splitting our trip between the 2 towns. We drove... More

Dear David 716, Thank you for sharing such lovely positives, it is great to hear that you enjoyed our fabulous location. It is a great walk into town but maybe a lift back back after shopping or meal is best. Very easy quick drive though. Hope to welcome you back in future, kind regards Diane More
