Fodor's Expert Review Millennium Hotel New Plymouth Waterfront

1 Egmont St., New Plymouth, Taranaki, 4310, New Zealand

Stylish and modern, central New Plymouth's only waterfront lodging is handily placed next to the Puke Ariki Museum. Each room has sea or city views and superking or queen beds; configurations range from studios with showers (no tubs) to elite studios with individual whirlpool baths and penthouse suites with separate bedroom, double whirlpool bath, shower, full laundry, and kitchen facilities. Salt, the hotel's popular restaurant-bar, feels minimalist—all the better to appreciate the view of Len Lye's 148-foot Wind Wand statue across the road.

PROS

  • proximity to the beach and Puke Ariki Museum
  • nice views
  • excellent hotel restaurant

CONS

  • port traffic rumbles past
