Stayed for week while skiing in Wanaka. Hotel rooms had all we needed, very clean and comfortable. Reception staff were very friendly and sorted out our broken kettle immediately. The bar and restaurant staff were very friendly I just thought they could do with some more staff as wait time for drinks in the hot pools was a little long.... More

Wanaka was very beautiful but disappointed with this hotel. Steak overcooked and cold breakfast at premium prices. I expected more. The room was new and comfortable. Desk staff ok. The girl in the dining room did a great job. Would probably look elsewhere next time. Somewhere with a view of the lake.

We spent one night at the hotel, which is located outside of town, a good 10-minute drive from the center of town. Check-in was quick and we were assigned room 99, which is a twin one-bedroom apartment. There was plenty of parking spaces next to our room. The apartment was apx. 65 square meters in size and consisted of a... More

Oakridge is ok but nothing to write home about. A few things just dampening our experience: - broken kettle (staff did replace after 2 phone calls) - no blanket (staff apologised as meant to be in room and sent one over) - $50 for wifi that didn't have reception in our room (we moved rooms) - as a couple, we...

Spent 3 nights here with my family in a 2 bed apartment on a recent ski trip. Well set up, very spacious, daily maid service, gorgeous views and nice and warm (there was a serious cold snap during our visit). Our kitchen though was lacking in some random basic things (like we only had 3 forks and spoons - for... More

We stayed 5 nights here and were very happy with it. Well located being only a couple of minutes from town and 30 minutes each to Treble and Cardrona. Our room was a little small but that didn't matter cause the only time we were there was to chill out and watch a movie.

As I have seen in other reviews, the facilities at this hotel really are great. The pools and spas were wonderful, even during chilly weather. The hotel gym is awesome and is used by some of the locals. It had numerous barbells and racks as well your standard cardio equipment. Our room was nice, a little small but we only... More

Our 4th year staying at the Oakridge, we can always justify the room rate as it offers our family so much. Enjoying a drink in the Hot pools after a full days skiing is one of lifes pleasures. The 2 bedroomed apartments are well appointed, clean and spacious. Love Daily room service. Im sure we will be back for our... More

The hotel is about a five minute drive from the bars, shops and restaurants, but quite a long walk. The hotel staff were helpful and check in was straightforward, even though I arrived quite late. Dinner was trickier as the restaurant was small and there was only 1 member of staff working both nights of my stay. I was advised... More
