We found Oakridge to be nice - had no issues with our room at all. Was clean and tidy, however the cleaners came through at about 6pm when we were in our rooms getting ready to head out for dinner on both nights so we didn't get our room cleaned the whole time. The pool is great and we spent... More

Rooms spacious and very clean. Excellent outdoor patio. Beds very comfortable. Cooking facilities satisfactory. Look for dishwasher under stove. 3 pools for swimming and several hot tubs. Beautiful scenery. About a mile or so from town. You do need a car. Parking directly in front of room. Good service. Attached restaurant. Wi-gi available in rooms for a fee. Free use... More

Decent hotel with good spacious rooms and within minutes (driving distance - 5mins) of the town. It included coffee and a kitchen which we didnt use but was clean and acceptable. The hotel has a pool area and a restaurant where we had breakfast the next day which I thought was quite expensive. It is quite a large property and... More

We stayed in 135/136 which had unobstructed views to the mountains. We enjoyed having the kitchen and the balcony was a good size. The swimming pools are great, and the gym was well set out. We did not dine in the restaurant as we had a kitchen. We had a vehicle, so the 2km trip into town was of no... More

Just by the looks of it, This hotel can't fail to impress you. It's not like any classic hotel with a concierge and a lift to take you upstairs to your rooms. It's just like staying in your own accomodation, which, for that matter, is way much better organized and posh. The SPA pools and the Lap swimming pool amid... More

We came to Wanaka for a wedding and stayed at the Oakridge with a number of other guests. We received a special rate as a consequence and enjoyed a very spacious unit (No 14) with a good sized kitchen, laundry facilities, bed area and lounge area and access to outside through sliding doors. The unit was clean and well appointed... More

We were very impressed with the one bedroom apartment we stayed in. King size double in bedroom and double pull out bed in lounge (they should improve on this as a bed). Good sized bathroom with a large corner bath. Kitchen was excellent if you were catering yourself. Our major complaint was no Sky TV. In this day and age... More

This hotel was not too far from town, the rooms are not too bad but could do with Air-Con as were a bit stuffy and the choice was either have all the windows open and risk being bitten by the local sandflies or be a little warm. The gravel on the driveways are noisy and parking is a free-for-all hot... More

Stayed in a 1 bdrm apartment which was roomy and had great views out to the mountains and lake. (Room 113). The pool and spa area is a fantastic part of the hotel. Whilst it is a couple of km's out of town, we saw this as bonus as it is a very nice location. Would definately stay here again.
