“First hand experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

On the numerous occassions I have used the fascillities Of Millenium Manuels Taupo I have found the service and friendliness of the staff always at a very high standard.
This time I used them for a birthday/family reunion and was delighted with the way the food was presented and the roll the staff played in making our time there enjoyable.
I cannot speak more highly of Manuels

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the Lake and Mountains

We stayed here in March 2013 and although only for 2 nights it was lovely. The hotel has lovely views of the lake and our room was comfortable.We ate in the restaurant the first night we were there and could not fault the food and service and I can be picky.A special mention to the man on reception when we arrived( unfortunately I did not get his name )as he couldn't do enough for us.Would definitely stay again.

Great value, great food, sublime location, wonderful staff. Will definitely return from Australia in the summer. The appearance of this hotel would suggest it would be expensive, not so. After having priced a number of other Hotels we were shocked to find for a little more than others we could stay right on the Lake.

We stayed here for 2 nights in June, great service, room, food etc. We had dinner here one night and the food was lovely. We were also booked in for breakfast and thought it was very good value. The bar was comfortable with a fire and cosy armchairs and the view over the lake was wonderful. Our room had a king size bed and lovely bathroom with walk-in shower. We were very satisfied and will stay here again.

Great room right on lake. Not all rooms are so best to ask. Large modern room with a seating area as well. Bathroom is a good size and has a spa bath. Nice restaurant and bar area very comfortable. Much better hotel than i would have expected.

After many years we returned to enjoy Manuels which is an icon venue right on the lake front in Taupo. The warmth of the welcome by all staff members quickly over came the winter cold. The room (not the top of their range) was large and well appointed with a huge bed and spa bath. The Grotto brings a unique touch to the usual spa pool with a cavernous interior complete with drips from the stalactites! Lynn our bar person delivered service with great humour which our group thoroughly enjoyed. The Edgewater Restaurant provides exceptional views of the lake and the setting sun but more importantly beautifully prepared food I rate the duck as one of the best duck dishes I have had. My wife said the combination of koura and prawns in her entree was superb. Altogether an excellent weekend and we will return again soon..

Stayed here with a group of 25 Ladies on a Harley-Davidson Garage Ride. What a truly wonderful experience , from the time I made the booking to the time we left. Staff were great, Peter Boyle the manager could not have been more helpful and a great host to all of us. bike parking area was coned off for us which made parking the bikes very easy. We were given our own room for dinner which was great, as you could imagine 25 women did get a little loud, lol... Dinner and breakfast was fabulous and very generous. Rooms were all lake view and very well appointed, clean and spacious. Our Harley-Davidson Riders truly enjoyed there experience at the hotel. So a very big thanks and I,m sure that it won't be just me that returns. Thank you very much
