Millennium Hotel Rotorua

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

However, it's a geothermal zone, so that's expected. Good pool . Good restaurant. Clean, but it is showing some age. The ac worked . The lobby was welcoming. It was within walking distance of town and a grocery store.

Stayed in a club room which was very nice with a couple of complimentary drinks and nibbles each evening. Breakfast was a bit disappointing being served in multiple rooms meaning food was left out for long periods. Hotel had a strong sulphur smell which a a trait of Rotorua with the thermal springs everywhere in the town. Bar was pleasant enough but the barman just decided to close at 10.00pm even with 20 residents still in the bar.

We spent a night in this hotel and wished we could stay longer. Great old hotel, beautiful rooms and a wonderful pool, spa and gym. Close to everything and we got a great rate. The kids loved it here.

I worked in this hotel when it originally opened as a Hyatt managed hotel in 1984. Thirty years on and it is showing some signs of aging despite renovations. The hot water system is fantastic - no shortage of hot water. The accommodation is standard and comfortable and it is close to the CBD - 2 blocks walk. Some of the suites offer in room thermal spa. Nice.

I have stayed at this Hotel on a couple of occasions and both times I have had a lake view room. The lake view rooms are well appointed and quiet and also have a small balcony. The rooms are not huge but comfortable (the rooms are standard size for this type of Hotel). This Hotel is part of the Millennium group (Kingsgate, Copthorne and Millennium), and being an actual "Millennium" hotel represents the more luxurious of the three levels of hotel. There is a nice big heated pool and spa pool(s). The lobby is spacious and clean, as is the the vibe of the entire property really. They offer a good buffet breakfast (although not as good as the buffet breakfast at the Novotel in Rotorua - if you like a good buffet breakfast then definitely check out the Novotel!) The location of this Hotel is great as well, and is right across the park from the Polynesian Spa. I would recommend this Hotel, and I will keep staying here (when I can't get a room at the Novotel).

This is a great central place to stay in Rotorua with both good conference facilities and ethnic tourist related themes. My party did have one small issue with our evening meal but the staff were so great in resolving the issue it is hard to be critical. Must mention the team on reception who were so friendly and helpful it gave you a great feeling about the hotel before you had even booked in.

Picked this hotel for a stay at a 5 star luxury hotel. Staff were well trained in public relations helpful. the entrance and general layout were as to be expected. A bi difficult in mornings at front entrance when large coaches took up a substantial amount of room but that is to be expected. one disabled parking place that I could see and the disabled entrance was not covered in the rain. the rooms were comfortable but I was so disappointed to see mould on the handrail in the bath and the corner of the bath with a hair on it. the spa and pool were wonderful. restaurant expensive so cant comment on that all in all probably 4.5 stars.

We stayed at this hotel as we were walking the Rotorua marathon - it was very close to the start/finish line, and offered a special rate for people doing the marathon. The hotel was easy to find, clean and tidy, and did a great buffet breakfast. It has a heated pool (a bit tepid for our tastes at this time of year) and two large spa pools which were perfect after a long day of exercise - with lovely soft pool towels. We joined their frequent flyers club (no charge) to get the free wifi - worth doing.

Now I am only basing this off of other places I stayed at in New Zealand but this hotel (or at least our room) seemed to be the most dated and in need of some renovation. I am not sure why it seems there was a loud fan running in the walls all the time. It was quite loud and you get used to it but much louder than used to for whatever that was running (maybe it has something to do with venting so you do not get the rotten egg smell?). The other annoyance in the room was the transition from the front floor to the carpet, the carpet was frayed and something sharp kept grabbing at our socks/footwear. But the breakfast was really good, staff were great and the location is good for being close to downtown and the Polynesian spa.

No wifi in our room after repeatedly asking for someone to fix it we gave up. They still charged us for it even though they knew we couldn't use it. We were meant to have a lake view and when I called reception the lady said they could move us for an extra $45 even though I had booked a lake view room. Mould all on the ceiling in shower and terrible soft beds I woke up with a bad lower back could barely walk. The usher was the most help out of anyone. Reception lacked care for hotel guest. Will stay at the Sudima next time since they make sure their guests are well looked after.
