Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Amazing staff, all super friendly. The lobby artwork and lighting was pleasant too. I'm normally hesitant about eating at hotel restaurants but decided to give it a try - probably the best steak I've had in a long time, I would stay there again just to have dinner. My only complaint would be the room is a little bit dated and shower was a little tight. But that's not much of an issue really. Would definitely stay again.

Review:   We have stayed at the Rotorua Millennium more than a dozen times over the years. It was our go to place for a nice mid-winter break when our kids were younger. They loved the indoor pool and we enjoyed the spa baths right next door or sitting under the heaters with a good book. The hotel staff are all very helpful and friendly. The hotel is getting a little dated and some bits tired, but overall is well maintained and very neat. Lake View rooms are the best for great views and a balcony for afternoon drinks. There are adjoining room options if needed. The room service menu seems to be a bit average now, but there’s plenty good food within easy walking distance from the hotel. The government gardens and lake front walks are on your doorstep. We’ve found the staff and treatments at the in hotel spa to be better prices, more relaxing and with friendlier staff than Polynesian pools across the road. There’s plenty parking around the hotel.

Review:   Entrance and public areas clean and well presented. Staff polite and friendly on arrival and check in was easy. Room nicely laid out and spacious. Bathroom on the other hand was a little compact. Water pressure in shower is very good though the shower head could be a little higher as had to duck a little. Spare power socket only on 1 side of the bed, would expect one on each side in any modern hotel now as so many mobile devices needing charging. Pool was closed for maintenance though the spa pools were still open and enjoyed a good soak. Small grumble on the tiles all round being so slippery meaning laying back and relaxing had you sliding down and into the middle of the pool.

Review:   Nice place to come if it's just you, or you and your partner. Not great for kids, in the room we were in - no benches or table to make coffee, had to make it in the bathroom. Kids eating on the floor. The beds were amazing and we all had a great sleep. So warm and clean. Staff are super friendly. The restaurant meal we had was very good.
