Millennium Hotel Rotorua – Review

Review – Millennium Hotel Rotorua

Amongst Rotorua’s many hotels and motels, the Millennium Hotel is one of the few that is conveniently located close to the Polynesian Spa, Rotorua Museum and Govt Gardens plus it is a short walk to the City Center or Rotorua Lake Front. For the more energetic the Redwood Grove walking tracks and mountain bike tracks are a short distance away – you can ride or walk there without crossing the main road !

The Hotel has a total of  227  rooms it is rated as a  4-star hotel with 3 room grades, some rooms have views of Lake Rotorua.

Superior Room : with the standard features you would expect from a 4 star chain hotel, all the rooms in Millennium Rotorua are on the small side if you are traveling as a couple it should be fine, but if with kids or extended family it would become an issue with very little personal space, the decor is pleasant with muted pastels colours, a little dated but the rooms are comfortable…

Superior Plus Room : The sole difference between Superior Rooms and Superior Plus Rooms seem to be the balcony with views overlooking  Lake Rotorua, a small advantage, but still nice I guess ? The facilities and decor inside the rooms are the same.

Club Rooms : complimentary use of The Club Lounge and business facilities – ideal for the business or corporate traveler, continental breakfast in the morning and bar service in the evenings, the Millennium Club Rooms are situated on the fifth floor they are slightly larger than standard rooms but the fittings and decor show no real improvement over the standard rooms.

Many of the Club Rooms have a balcony with lake views, the  entire Club Floor is a smoke-free and child free area – something to be aware of if travelling with your kids.

One area that the Millennium Rotorua really shines is it’s Spa Facilities and  thermally heated pools – the covered all weather pool is great for relaxing after a hard day mountain biking or trekking around tourist attractions, as well the children and toddler pools are perfect for entertaining your kids when you run out idea’s or the weather turns bad,

Note :  It appears the pool has restricted use – you often can’t use the pool in the evening  or mornings due to the dinner show or groups using the restaurant.

“There’s a beautiful pool in the hotel but from 6 pm it was reserved for group dinner. It was also reserved  for group breakfast from early morning. We didn’t have a chance to use it.”
