Retirement age executive couple, picked this hotel from TA and were rewarded with a smart accommodation and really nice restaurant meal. The weather did not cooperate and, unfortunately, clouds masked what the postcards called the view. Away from the crowds, this was a nice one night stay on a three week trip.

This is a fantastic hotel, wonderful location with room overlooking the lake and staff that enjoy looking after you. The fine dining restaurant is well worth the visit, My partner is vegetarian and the chef made a special menu for her, how's that for service. A special mention to Michelle on reception who was so helpful and went out of... More

We couldn't believe our eyes when shown our room........ the views over the lake were spectacular. We spent three nights here during our extended trip to New Zealand and enjoyed every moment! Our room was very comfortable with a couch and arm chair which meant we could relax after a day of walking and sight seeing. The bar overlooking the... More

We couldn't believe our luck, my husband turned the big 60 and our boys shouted us a weekend in Taupo and we stayed at the Millennium. When we rang it was getting towards the September holidays and a lot of the rooms were booked. When we arrived to our surprise we got up graded to a suite which was fabulous.... More

We had room 812 which was among the few with glass panel balcony. Ask for those for unobstructed view of Lake Taupo. The room itself is ok, but shower cubicle is tiny even for medium size people. If you are large you'll need to squeeze yourself in. The hotel has coin operated laundry with a good size dryer, which served... More

Seriously, if you are visiting Taupo you really should consider Manuels in Taupo. The position on the lake is unbeatable. As you check in at reception with the friendly staff you look into the lounge area which is full comfortable chairs and couches (a fireplace too for those cold days) and there is the lake spread out in front of...

Stayed only one night but we were very impressed. Manuels has been a fixture for over 30 years and in our view has not lost its customer ethos. We were very impressed with the welcome we received and every interaction with staff was a pleasure. This is not the cheapest lace in town but if you are interested in value... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Millennium Hotel in Taupo recently. We booked several months in advance with web saver, expecting to get the best deal by booking early. My wife's parents also decided to come and stay at the same time, and booked only a few weeks before. Our room was 604, the in-laws was 801.... More

We stayed here for four nights and didn't want to leave. The view was amazing and so was the room (Lakeview suite) and service. The restaurant was also very good. Well situated and quality service...........
