“Excellent stay”
Reviewed 28 December 2012

My partner and I stayed at Wylie Court for Christmas 2012. We stayed for 3 nights and we had a great time. The staff were very helpful and even did some ringing around for us, prior to us staying, for things to do in the area.
The accommodation itself was very spacious. There was a double bed downstairs and another double bed upstairs. We loved the fact that we had another floor as it made it more a home away from home. There was no air con downstairs, but a huge ceiling fan in the upstairs bedroom.
The lounge has a flatscreen TV, dining table, bed and couch. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed to make decent meals, although it didn't have an oven.
The bathroom was spacious and the room came with plenty of towels. The shower cubicle was also quite large.
Through the back we had our own Jacuzzi which was heaven, but we did have to keep putting in cold water as it got extremely hot when left for a while. I usually like hot baths, but this was too much even for me. The reception have stated in another comment, that if you ask at reception they will hose it down with cold water for you, but because I wanted to make the most of the Jacuzzi and was in and out of it quite frequently, I didn't want to keep pestering them.
Loved staying here and would def. recommend it.

My wife and I stayed for a weekend in October 2012. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Room was very well presented with plenty of room, ours even had a spa. Breakfast was excellent. Great location. Managers were very helpful. Happy to recommend & will stay again.

Wylie Court is a good family option in Rotorua. Clean, tidy on the main hotel/motel strip just out of town. Our room had a mezainine floor with 2 singles and a queen downstairs. Rooms well appointed and clean, include kitchen. Some small signs of wear. Small thermal pool (about a foot deep) in the courtyard is a novel feature. The heated motel pool is very good and will entertain the kids for ages. We paid $185 - 2 kids, 2 adults.

We have stayed here a few times previously and enjoy coming back. We couldn't get the 2 bedroom accommodation (need to get more organised for booking in the holidays!), but we managed to get a room with a private spa (always a bonus). We enjoy staying here due to the reasonably spacious accommodation - room to get away from each other, the spa pools in some rooms and the fabulous heated pool, which keeps the kids (teenagers) entertained for hours, regardless of the weather. This year we have also been thrilled with having two tvs and endless wifi - everyone is happy and relaxed - not doubt we'll be back again.

What a gem. Great couple managing this property - very friendly and welcoming. Offered us advise on some free stuff to do with kids. Rooms were very clean, spacious and comfortable. Loved having our own private spa pool - absolutely hot all day and all night. Kids room was a loft upstairs so still had our privacy. Kitchenette in room - fully equipped and everything we needed. Great heated pool and laundry on site with free washing machine. Had dinner in the restaurant - excellent value and great food. Overall would definitely recommend and would stay here again.

Reviewed 13 August 2012

we booked 2 nights accommodation for our kids hockey team, close on 30 people. Not only were Wylie Court able to accommodate the number of us, they have various types of rooms to accommodate the many families, some small, some large.
Each room had it's own hot tub or spa. The rooms were fresh and immaculately presented with underfloor heating.
The rooms were serviced each day, kitchens cleaned, beds made and bathrooms cleaned & with new towels - we had expected to reuse the towels to assist with being more eco-friendly.
Due to the large number of us staying, the chef offered use of his restaurant for our team. He went beyond his means, and created a number of buffets for us to choose from prior to our stay.
The buffet meal was fantastic. Freshly prepared and cooked. Suitable for both kids, adults and varying meal preferances (we also had vegetarian).
Well done to Wylie Court and service was fantastic and exceeded our expectations.
I would not hesitate in staying here again or recommending this motel to colleagues, friends and family.
Thanks from Auckland Hockey Under 13 Development

Out of the huge range of places to stay in Rotorua, this was a great choice for us during the July school holidays. The children loved the swimming pool and having our own private hot pool as well was a real treat. We had a unit with a double bed downstairs and two single beds on the mezzanine which they thought a great novelty. Like an earlier commenter they (10 & 8) didn't find the playground too young for them either. Very friendly service - a lightbulb had gone and our room was missing a double plug which meant only the bedside clock or the bedside lamp could be plugged in, not both at the same time. As soon as I mentioned this, both were remedied. I also wouldn't have known about visiting the trout hatchery (in between Paradise Valley Springs and Wingspan) if we hadn't stayed here. Would definitely recommend.
