We stayed in the Oakridge Resort for a week in March 2017. We had a first floor 2 b/r apartment that was roomy, comfortable and well equipped with kitchen and laundry. Both bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. Although the outside temperature sank as low as 2C one morning inside it was snug and comfy. The resort is about 20 years old...

We stayed one night and were pleased with the room and the facilities except that the telephone wasn't working. We reported it at reception and were told an engineer would call the next day. Later on an urgent call came through for us and we were not contacted or given a message. The wifi was also very poor. However, the...

Claimed to have wi if but we didn't. We did speak to them about this and were told others didn't have this problem but we found out others...

We stayed for a wedding, booked 3 rooms in Nov 2016 for March 2017 money was taken out of our account straight away for the full amount. I was a little concerned as it's very difficult when accommodation is not up to standard but hoped all was well. Arrived to find units a bit average for price $225 a night,...

My wife and I stayed here one night during a business trip. To sum up the place, it's a nice motel. The room was clean but cheaply appointed. The heated pool was open but not quite heated. One of the two jacuzzi tubs was open but not working. They offer free wifi but provide only enough bandwidth to get email....

There is nothing exceptional about this hotel. The reception area is nice but the rooms are slightly disappointing but they do the job. They do need some overhauling. The TV in our room must have been bought in the 70's, it was so big(not in a big screen way). The view from the room was nice but to access the...

The room was clean and well decorated and the bathroom was fine but we struggled to find a place to put our bags.TV was very limited The restaurant was a little like a canteen without atmosphere & with a...

Reception was efficient. Had a first floor room overlooking lawn. Had to lug cases up narrow hallway and stairs. The room was comfortable and having a balcony was a bonus. The hotel is out of town so you need a car to get to restaurants etc. The pool area looked very nice but we did not swim there. Hotel served...

Mercure Oakridge was a great and pleasurable stop on our journey down the South Island NZ. It has the feel of an upscale resort. Hotel rooms were great. Our second story room was clean and had a very nice bathroom. The balcony was an added plus. Service was also responsive and accomodative. It feels like you're in a small apartment...

Our room/suite comprised of a lounge/dining room with large Television (only four local, boring channels/no movies) fully functional kitchen (complete with oven and even a dishwasher), a great bathroom (no shelf space unfortunately) but with a heated floor and a medium sized, very comfortable bedroom, (no tv, but aerial input and power points on wall - so perhaps later). Great...
