Those wanting to absorb the atmosphere of Lake Taupo should consider dining right on the shore at Manuels. The food is excellent and the vista out over the water is second to none. Whether it is a lunch break or fine dining, the food here is exquisite

I stayed at this Hotel for the first time in April of 2017. This is a small luxurious hotel with absolute lake front views. The room I had was upstairs and had a private balcony looking straight out over the lake. You could almost touch the water! There is a nice swimming pool and a very "interesting" grotto spa pool...

This hotel has a perfect setting on the edge of Lake Taupo. Rooms on the bottom floor allow you to walk out your door, and across to the lake which is about 15m away. A walkway runs back to town along the lake edge, which is easy walking distance. The suites were lovely - very large and extremely comfortable. Good...

We spent two nights at this hotel towards the end of a three week comprehensive tour of New Zealand. Our agent had booked it for us as part of our itinerary and we hadn't really known what to expect, but it was lovely. We had a suite right at the end of the hotel with patio doors opening directly onto...

Dear sachaf579 It was lovely to read your feedback and of the experiences you enjoyed - thank you. Sometimes we can pick what rooms are referred to but because of confidentiality we never know names and cannot be sure, so I dod not know what bathroom was referred to previously.

The perfect start to our honeymoon and a fabulous introduction to some of the loveliest places in New Zealand!

We stayed here as one of our final days after spending a year in NZ and overall I would say that this hotel is very tired and needs some updating. The first room we were shown was nothing like we saw on the website when we booked and we were quickly moved to a bigger more modern room. The room...

We booked on line on the basis of reviews and some nice photos. The location is lakeside so you can't get much better than that. The hotel structure itself looks quite old. Whilst the rooms are ok and comfortable, the bathroom is original nineties which means really small with a really small shower Prices should reflect that it's out of...

The Millennium in Taupo has a great location with stunning views of the lake. Lovely waterfront walks, great restaurant and wonderful, down-to-earth service. The heated pool is a great way to relax.

Very comfortable suite opening onto the lake. The spa bath soothed away the travel weariness of the day. Excellent breakfast in the elegant dining room. We sat at a window table overlooking the early morning mist on the lake.
