4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very comfortable hotel. Ideally placed. good sized rooms, very friendly staff especially at reception. easy to walk from it to most attractions in the town although you will need transport for those things further out. Breakfast was buffet style with plenty of choice. Eggs could be ordered any style .The restaurant is next to the pool area.and quite spacious

a lovely and relaxing place to stay, included in-house swimming pool and spa the lakeview room at 2414 didn't have much view of the lake as polynesian spa was right in front The buffet breakfast offered great choice of options to suit different taste so it was a highlight

Just recently had a 3 night stay at the hotel. This was my 2nd time staying here. Good size hotel, excellent rooms and a good restaurant. The hotel is easy walking distance from the shopping precinct of Rotorua. My room had 2 queen size beds and had a nice view over the large lawned area at the back of the hotel. It appears to be recently renovated and was in excellent condition.

We were in Rotorua for a couple of days and stayed at the Millennium. Our group had planned for another hotel for our stay but it was fully booked and we ended up here. The location was very nice but we had some issues. The first was the terrible wi-fi. We actually got a better signal from the hotel across the way. Very disappointing. The rooms smelled of sulfur which is understandable due to the proximity to the thermal facility. Just be forewarned. For some reason we found the hotel to be very noisy. The walls and floors must be thin because there is a lot of noise. It is very noisy by the pool, which unfortunately is near the buffet. The breakfast buffet was spotty. The eggs were under-cooked and they had the slowest toaster ever created. The coffee was not hot and they didn't have decaf out. It made for a very long and underwhelming breakfast. I think we would have enjoyed the area more if we had out first choice of hotel instead of the Millennium.

Stayed for three nights. Check in fine. The room was fine not amazing but we were pleasently surprised after reading some of the recent review. It was clean with a lake view and the cleaning staff very helpful. The hotel is right in the town so convenient to walk to everything. We had lunch in the bar which was fine but slow service. We also ate in the restaurant which was very good and very attentive service. We did have breakfast one morning which was awful too busy and not enough staff to cope. It was on a day when there was torrential rain.

The staff are absolutely lovely at this hotel but the room we had was in very poor condition. It smelt damp, mouldy on the ceiling and walls. Wall paper coming off, shower was like a mist. Window/door seals didn’t work so a whistle of wind was continuous throughout the night. Woken in the morning by what we believe was someone having a shower above us. As said the service at the front desk was amazing but the room was the biggest disappointment.

This is a smart hotel with lovely public areas including a decent sized pool, under cover. The room was clean and comfortable, the hotel was very quiet and we had a good view over the town to the lake and the sulphur geysers. The town does smell with the sulphur from the geysers!

We stayed for four nights at the Millennium in Rotorua. Upon arrival we were greeted with warm smiles on reception although we did have to unload our own bags from the car which we didn't mind. The check-in went well and we were taken to our room on level 5 which we were told included access to the Club Room where we could have breakfast provided and also a "Happy Hour" in the early evenings beginning at 5:00. Our room was clean and very adequate with a very large king bed and we had a lovely balcony with a great view of the lake. The bathroom had a shower over the bath and was easy to access. Overall we liked our room and found it most pleasant. We dined at the Nikau Restaurant in the hotel on our first night and the food was delicious with the staff being very helpful and a happy bunch. Our room was attended to each day by the hotel staff and we found them to be helpful, happy and most pleasant. Our light breakfast in the Club Room each morning was very adequate if you enjoy various cereals, toast with condiments, fresh fruits, yogurt , fresh juice and tea and coffee etc. There is no cooked breakfast here but the restaurant is available for a cooked breakfast menu. Our experience overall was a very happy one and we enjoyed our interactions with all the happy staff. We would stay again.

Don’t turn up early you won’t be welcome at this property. Rooms are tired, the property is in need of a refurbish. Founds rooms to be noisy with other guests walking up and down the corridor. Good location

We are getting married in Rotorua next year and decided to check out this hotel as the majority of our guests will be staying there. We weren’t disappointed as the hotel is nice and comfortable with friendly staff. We had a room with a spa which was lovely. Dinner at the restaurant was amazing and the hotel in general has a nice vibe to it. This is predominantly due to the friendliness of the staff who make you feel welcome. The only small downsides was it was a little noisy at times. We had a massage at the spa and it wasn’t very relaxing due to screaming kids jumping in the pool. We were a little surprised that kids were allowed in that area? The massage itself was lovely though. There were some slight cleanliness issues in our room such as cigarette butts in the pot plant in the spa area and a toenail in our bed. We didn’t report this to the hotel staff though as it really was a minor issue. Our overall experience was great and we’re looking forward to staying again next year.
