Great place with great facilities including free wifi. Rooms were clean, well maintained, including a full kitchen (with dishwasher!) and clothes washer and dryer. This came in really handy as we were midway though our travels. We got a lot cleaned! We didn't use the pool but it looked very nice. Easy access to the town centre with a car....

We stayed for 2 nights here as a family of 5. Slightly out of the lakeside area. Great pool and hot tubs. Good facilities for self catering. Unfortunately I had to do a some work but the wifi was terrible. A first enquiry wasn't well handled. On check out I mentioned it, not being one to usually complain - the...

We had booked a lower end room as we were only staying two nights, and arriving late on one of them. We didn't expect to spend much time here. We were generously upgraded to an apartment and I'm so glad they did. This did NOT feel like a hotel stay. This felt like home. It was very modern, and VERY...

We only stayed for one night as it was the only accomodation available at the time. Rooms were clean and facilities as one one expect. This is a large complex with many rooms and divided up into different blocks so felt like a high density housing estate rather than a resort. Our room was warm and cozy but a view...

I was a bit nervous based on other reviews on TA, but we must have lucked out because we had great time. We only stayed here for one night on our way to Queenstown. We had a two bedroom apartment. It was perfect for our family of four, with a huge living area and balcony. There was a full kitchen...

The oakridge is about 2.5 km from the centre of Wanaka, which is a very picturesque walk or $15 in a yellow taxi. The room facilities are excellent with the very front and back row of rooms/villas having good views of the mountains. The staff were friendly and welcoming with good knowledge of local attractions. The only improvement we could...

Mercure Oakridge Hotel is the best hotel in Wanaka for you and your family. Big and spacious units, great spa and pools and friendly staff. The best place to just relax and rest.The only set back is the wifi connection, very slow and unreliable, everything else are perfect!

The suites were large and comfortable with full kitchen and washer/dryer. Try to get a view toward the mountains. The breakfasts were typical buffet style. As many tour groups use the motel, the café can get crowded—however just wait a few minutes as they all have to hurry to make their bus and then the café gets less hectic.

We got a one bedroom villa style room, it had a kitchen and lounge area which was great. Location is only about 5-10min from the town which is fine if you have a car. By cab it cost about 15 dollars one way. Good value! The pool/spas are great too
