On arrival the Hotel area was quite impressive so it was a little disappointing when we entered our very small room. 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...

We stayed one night on our way out to Fox Glacier. The rooms had wafer thin walls and we could hear ever word of the conversations next door. Not sure if they are timeshare, but there was a curt note in the wardrobe about using a pillow that was "the owners". Other than that the room was ok but we...

This hotel has the potential to be amazing, the facilities are A1, the grounds are perfect, the pools & gym are brilliant! However the restaurant was almost impossible to get a table & the reception staff were not overly interested in helping. We got more assistance and information about the local area from the local bike shop than our hotel!

We stayed in the apartments on this complex which were basic but ok, as long as you don't mind being overlooked by your neighbours. However the restaurant near reception was not good - they were unable to serve most of the evening menu because "there had been a fire in the kitchen".The buffet breakfast the next day turned out to...

Dear littleuggie, Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback. Unfortunately our kitchen did experience a large fire that did damage majority of our appliances, luckily we were able to get part of our kitchen up and running for the next service but not all items were available.

We were only there for 1 night, but the room is clean, modern and has everything needed for a self contained room although no aircon. which honestly didn't worry me too much. Pool looked great, we didn't go in, it was so busy as we picked to stay there when the Wanaka Challange was on, so was a bit crazy....

This motel is situated away from the town area. It looks to be a relatively new motel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were definitely different.Our wing consisted of 2 up 2 down.

Great, helpful management at Oakridge Resort. Easy check in and check out, and answer questions and provides brochures of area attractions. The units was clean and very nice, with ample parking. The resort is in an excellent location in Wanaka. The swimming pool and hot tubs are great too.
