“Initially disappointed”
Reviewed 9 January 2010

Booked a two bedroom unit and was disappointed to find we were in a very seventies style motel unit (with no spa) which had been saturated with a very aromatic cleaning product..it had such a strong smell that the three of us were sneezing within seconds. Still no better a few hours later after opening all the windows and doors. The staff at reception were very understanding and offered us a choice of two other (newer) units which although they still had a whiff of the same cleaning product did not reek of it, like the first one...why do people use this awful stuff?>"to cover up worse smells" ...which is a worry! The unit with the mezzanine bedroom was in much newer condition and had its own outside spa pool, although if you are sharing be aware: no sound proofing and the design of the unit meant it was hard to keep cool. A word of warning about Rotorua in summer it can be very hot and airless but winter here is great.

We spent three nights in this excellent motel. Our unit was absolutely wonderful, with its own spa bath, plus Sky tv that my 11-year old couldn't drag himself away from....... What made the stay so good, though, was the excellent impromptu advice from the staff on the best sights to see in and around Rotorua. As a result of this wise guidance we saw the most fabulous geysers, waterfalls and other attractions. A really great stay! Many thanks to the staff there!!

This place is amaizing. Spa's with private courtyard were just lovely. The reception staff were so helpful with all our travel plans. Would certainly recomend this to all travellers. The swimming pool is great as well.
Had a meal in the restaurant which was to die for. Wonderful to be able to drink and walk back to your unit without having to drive.

We stayed in a Studio with Queen & Single Bed. The accomodation was on different levels. On the ground floor you accesed through french doors into the open plan living area with kitchen at the back. The spacious bathroom was at the rear of the living area. Up one small flight of stairs led to the back door which led to a private area with your own Jacuzzi. Up one more flight of stairs led to the mezzanine bedroom area. The accomodation was clean and spacious and the Jacuzzi area was lovely and relaxing. My only critisism would be a lack of character, but that would only be nit picking as overall it was very impressive. We used the outside pool which was very warm and was in a very pleasant area with native plants and loungers to relax on. Rotorua itself is a must. It is central for lots of different attractions and is a very attractive place itself especially around the lakeside and Government gardens.

Stayed here for 2 nights during our roadtrip around NZ. Looked at a couple of other nearby motels before settling on the Wylie. Good decision as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. From the private hottub at the back of the unit to the thermal swimming pool & the lovely breakfasts they bring to your unit. Great service, very friendly. Decent furnishings including flat screen tv & comfy sofas & beds. Would return to NZ just to stay here again! Highly recommended.
