Beautifully situated right on the edge of the lake, with fabulous views. We had a first floor room, no lift and no offer of help to get luggage up there. on the first evening we ordered four drinks in the bar which were so expensive, and tiny measures, which when we questioned the staff were told these were the correct...

A very nice, well-managed hotel. My room was on the ground floor and faced Lake Taupo. Our group ate breakfast and dinner there. All food and service was very good. We took advantage of the common areas, the swimming pool, sauna, and the gym. Also, the hotel is not far from town and is manageable to go there on foot.... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of a North Island driving holiday. The hotel is amazing. Great views of the lake. Wonderful personal service, extremely comfortable rooms and superb food. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the bed was enormous. I would recommend this hotel highly.

Spent 1 night at the Millennium Hotel; wish we were there longer! Beautiful room with balcony overlooking the lake. Near to town where there are many restaurants. Walked for miles aside the lake. Sunset was so lovely. Quiet and relaxing.

We were on a honeymoon at the end of last November in New Zealand with my wife and one of the destinations was Taupo. We decided to stay at the Millenium due to the excellent location by the lake. We enjoyed our stay at the Millenium very much. The hotel is clean, up to date and the location is just... More

We booked this hotel for our 30th wedding anniversary trip for two nights. We chose their best room (executive king) and the studio type hotel room was a good size, spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. We had a room on the first floor (ie. the top floor) and it is only about 30 metres from the balcony to the water's... More

We stayed here for one night during a months tour of New Zealand as it was directly on the lake. However, although the concept was fine it somehow didn't work for me. The glass doors slid open to give one an uninterrupted view of the lake, but also a whole waddle of ducks pooping in the entranceway. The restaurant has... More

Dear roadtripparsnip - i am sorry to read that we did not meet your expectations and very disappointed to read about some particular staff letting our friendly happy team down - Yes the ducks cause us a lot of continual cleaning duties, and you know what causes the biggest problem to us is, some guests find them really cute (which...

As usual we had a Junior Suite with a lake view. The room was spacious, comfortable with a large bathroom. The views over the lake are wonderful especially for sunsets. The bar is lovely and relaxing and we love staying here. Around 3K out of cental Taupo but we walked both ways.

Stayed here for one night on a three week tour of New Zealand. Fabulous hotel with good sized rooms over looking the lake. The views were outstanding and the tranquillity superb. Some of recent reviewers must have been in a different place as we could not fault it. Certainly not a motel!!

Dear andbeegee -THANK you for your appreciation and comments - you are so correct there is a lot of difference between us and a motel. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us as that is what our great reputation is based on. Hopefully you will return to NZ and we have the opportunity of welcoming you... More
