A short drive from the city center; room was clean and all necessities were provided. The biggest draw would be the hot pools, which are available for use for free. Great to soak in the pools at night under the starry sky.

Very pleasant stay for one night. The pools are nice, yet the lap pool was numbingly cold. If you stay in Wanaka, I would certainly recommend this (esp. if you can do without views onto the lake.) If you come from Queenstown in a car, I would recommend taking the Cardrona Valley Road which has spectacular views and eventually goes... More

Resort is a 5 minute drive outside Wanaka on the Queenstown road (it took a little finding!). Facilities are good with an outside pool and spa plus free laundry facilities in our room. We stayed in a Studio suite which was a good size with a great view of the mountains. We were given complimentary wi-fi and dining/sight recommendations for... More

Oakridge is a little out of town - so you need transport unless you plan to stay and eat in the resort. Rooms are large and if you are an Accor member wifi is free. The resort offers heated pools and Jacuzzi and a spa with range of treatments. The bar is small and breakfast buffet not as extensive as... More

The man behind the reception desk wasn't very friendly when we checked in, so we were not off to a good start. He disposed of us as quickly as he could and a smile was too much to ask for. A shame really, because it was the only bad thing about this hotel. We were in heaven when we saw... More

Dear buenodoc, We apologize you did not enjoy your stay with us but it seems your experience with us was tarnished with other guests behavior. We do have supervisors on site at all times and we would have been more than happy to deal with situation promptly. Unfortunately no attempt was made to contact us as you felt the other... More

Every time we come to wanaka we stay here. The rooms are always emmaculate and cosy. Friendly service and amazing views. The pools are lovely and hot pools are always hot unlike some other places that aren't. A great way to end my 40th birthday weekend. Thanks guys.
