Great place to stay if you want somewhere quiet and away from town. Friendly service on front desk. Comfortable clean rooms. Adequate facilities for myself and teenage son. Only downer was the weather. Otherwise a pleasant stay.

The place is great, organised, and clean. nice room and staff. We had a bit of a holiday rush in booking but it all went sweet. Heaps of parking so need to worry on crowded and small spaces. Interconnected buildings allows you to stay under the roof if you wish too.. There is SPA though the pool is not too... More

2 adults 2 children for $127 per night. Was good value. If you expect something fancy this is not the place. Basic, older yet spacious rooms but for all of us represented good value for money. Management do need to address the tiled steps leading into the blocks of rooms. Very very slippery when wet. They need grips on the... More

venue near shopping centres and waterworld, away from Hamilton central business district where parking is so expensive and unforgiving. walking distance to dairy and shops for those emergency things and cravings.

Quiet and tucked away from the main road so quiet. I've had breakfast here and also dinner and I must say the food was awesome. Although away from the city, it was close to the shopping centre (The Base) and also nice dining places.

Was meant to stay here for 2 nights while visiting family in Hamilton but checked out after the 1st night. Rooms were not clean at all. Reception staff were not very friendly. We found another hotel for the same price up the road that was clean and tidy so if your shopping on price then look around.

Thank you for the kind comments and great that you enjoyed your stay with us and your visit to Hamilton. I can only assume rooms were either booked on different dates and as such rates do change regularly dependent on occupancy levels. Alternatively there could have been triple rooms booked which are priced slightly hire as many people book them... More

Don't let that this Millennium Hotel fool you. This is far from the standard for any Millennium Hotel i've have ever seen before. This hotel reminds me of something from the 1970's and its probably when it was last renovated. Very dated room facilities, though foyer is well presented to give the image of a decent hotel. Room was basic... More

Thank you for taking the time to make comment. We are a Kingsgate Hotel, the 3rd tier of the Millennium Hotels Brand with Copthorne Hotels rated above us as well. The hotel was built in 1998 so yes it has had a full and complete renovation since the 1970's and even over the last two years we have replaced: All... More

Sprawling complex used by groups for weekend benders. Bar fridge in room empty which was annoying as we arrived late and everything was closed; Rooms are a throw back to the 80s. Very disappointing, untidy and unkempt.

Thank you for taking the time to make comment. I am unsure what date you stayed but the only group that I think you could be referring to was a leading New Zealand company who held their annual conference and function outside of the Hotel. They booked 127 of the 147 rooms at the Hotel. We certainly do not encourage... More

No way in the world this place should have a 4 star rating. Decades old decor, furniture and beds. Stained carpet and bedding. Holes in the bedspread, cobwebs everwhere, peeling wallpaper, grubby fridge, squeaky floor boards in my room and the neibouring room - yes I could hear every step. Find somewhere else.
