This hotel is located right on the lake front, with fantastic views. The hotel has all the basics covered including a good pool, however it is in need of a significant makeover as it is looking very tired, including the rooms. Breakfast was very disappointing, so we avoided the restaurant from an early stage. Felt expensive for the overall hotel... More

From a lovely greeting at the front desk to the wonderful view from our newly refurbished room and balcony everything was perfect for our stay here. Although it was a little chilly I couldn't resist sitting out on the balcony on the sunlounge well wrapped in a blanket. It was so nice to have the black swans swim by to... More

The hotel is just lovely ! Very clean, great views, food was yummy :) Staff very friendly and helpful. Only complaint would be the size of the shower ! A corner had been removed so the door could open, which made the small shower even smaller !!!! Rubbish selection on the TV :( We had a first floor lake view... More

The location and lake view from our room was fabulous and although the decor of the room was a little dated we have nothing but praise for the Millennium Hotel.

We had an amazing weekend in Taupo and I'd highly recommend this hotel. We arrived around 4pm, was warmly greeted and sent to our suite overlooking Lake Taupo. The hotel is literally right on the Lake's edge, about 4-5 meters away from the water. We were lucky with the weather, crystal clear skies and no wind at all. The bed... More

We loved this hotel with a terrace overlooking the Lake. We had a bedroom, shower room and lounge with comfy sofa and chairs. The bed was a delight and the shower room had a good range of toiletries and first class equipment. We could park outside but had to drive into town. We had a welcome drink on arrival. I... More

Once again we headed back to Taupo and Millennium where we are now quite well known. The service was spectacular as always - stayed in a similar style room with big king sized bed. Only think I don't like is that the beds can be pulled apart and the ridge in the middle of the bed had big ridges down... More

Only stayed one night but thought it was fine. Staff friendly and quick check in. The room is not big but has a good view.
