I suspect many apt. rooms are nice here...if you are lucky enough to get a renovated unit. We were not. The lobby and pools looked nice, the apt. they gave us looked like my college dorm room from 1982. Cheap furniture, dirty, scarred and scratched walls and floors and the doorframe trim to the bedroom was half pulled off the...

Wanaka is one of the most beautiful towns in New Zealand or anywhere for that matter. At the Mecure Oakridge we had a studio apartment which I loved because of the couch, kitchen and hot pools. But the bed was uncomfortable! The arrangement of the room looked great when we entered, but little design faults were annoying. The location was...

It looks nice but lots of flaws. The main pools are nice but the 'hot tubs' were pretty grotty. The normal spa bubbles don't work on them and the water in both the ones I tried was full of plant and insect debris. Food was very average. They sent a medium rare steak out very well done and then after...

The hotel is situated some 2.5 km outside the town, which is a good walk there and back. Wan aka is often very windy, perhaps also rainy, so good clothing is necessary. The hotel consists of a number of two-story units, ask for one with a view to the pools. The pools are very nice, indeed, even in rain. The...

We stayed for 2 nights and the rooms were nice and clean. The walls were a bit 'thin' as we could hear everything that was going on the next room. We had to pay for internet which was disappointing. The pools were great, as was the sauna. Wouldve liked to have swum in the lap pool, but its not heated.

Stayed here for just one night in a studio apartment. We found the apartment had everything we needed and was a good size, everything was clean and comfortable. Enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tubs too, would definitely have liked to stay longer!

After driving long hours, climbing things, jumping off things, running walking, sailing and generally exhausting ourselves with all the south island has to offer, Oakridge was absolute heaven! Fully equipped with a heated pool, 7 mini hot tubs, a spa, a gym, a bar and an excellent restaurant we wanted for nothing and left feeling rested and refreshed! Highly recommend.

A short walk or drive to the lake. With pool, restaurant, beautician and masseuse on site. The is place is fully accommodating for anytime of the year. Rooms are tidy and spacious. Lots of parking. Had a big day hiking or skiing then why not get in a hot tub and be served a glass of wine while you soak

This hotel was good for our 1 night stopover, but it is just a shame that it could be a lot better with a bit of investment. Staff were great and our room was large with a comfortable bed, but it was showing signs of age, and although the windows had curtains the opaque glass door did not. It was...
