We stayed there for 3 nights on our ski trip. Its location was close to Wanaka ( 4 minutes drive) and about 30 minutes to both Cardrona and Treble Cones ski resorts. We didn't dine in hotel, but the prices was almost the same as the town. The room was very clean and it had daily room service. It has a nice hot pool and a few SPA's which is some how necessary after a day of skiing. The only negative point was its architecture. To get to our room we had to take stairs which was narrow and steep it becomes more harder when you need to take your heavy luggage up and down.
Over all it was good for staying over night.

The Oakridge Staff went out of their way to make everything easy on the week of our daughters wedding. Extra glasses, plates, teapots, coffee plungers, vases, no request was to hard!
Thanks so much we will be back!

Staff were friendly, room was clean and comfy, views in the area were lovely. Only downside is the rooms with interconnecting doors who for some reason we had. Could hear everything that our neighbours were talking about quite clearly.

Our family of 4, 2 boys 6 & 4, recently stayed at Oakridge Resort for 5 nights as a base for Cardrona and the snow farm. We had room 170, a 2 bedroom apartment, nice spacious place adequate for our family. All facilities provided work as it should. Another plus point was the heated pool and hot tubs, great to just soak and relax in them after a day in the snow.

Location wise, we were a little concerned before arriving that it was not Wanaka downtown, but it is less than 5 minutes drive and we found parking easily every time.

Would recommend and would stay again if we came back to Wanaka.

Very disappointed with the customer service from this resort, I was traveling with a friend and due to a very family sensitive circumstance I was unable to make it to the resort on the days planned, my friend was able to make it but they were not able to work with me or him on reservations or cost at all, I ended up paying full price for a place I was never able to stay or re-schedule. Felt like they were more interested in taking my money rather than being accommodating to their guests.

This guest requested a discount on a non-refundable and non-cancellation reservation made through booking.com. The room was still used by another guest for the duration of the entire reservation. No discounts are available for single occupancy use.

We had a super king bed room #116. Well appointed room, excellent housekeeping. Our 3 night visit was during late July snows. Heating was superb. Shower head a bit low for a 6' person but plenty of hot water and strength of shower excellent. All staff were pleasant and helpful. Pool and spa area was always well maintained and always busy at the end of a days skiing. Property has ample parking and easy access to town and the mountains. This was our first visit to Wanaka. We will return to Wanaka and to Oakridge.

Stayed: July 2017
