We arrived at the Oaks at 9pm after a long drive through the country from Christchurch, feeling tired and a little emotional! We checked in and the duty manager herself showed us to the room, sorted out one small glitch with the dishwasher (it was leaking) and gave us a bottle of wine for our trouble.
We then had a superb dinner in the restaurant (which stayed open late for us) accompanied by the fabulous NZ wine, and made our way back to flake out in a lovely hot bath. However, it was waking up the next morning that was really impressive - to fully take in the views of the lake at sunrise, sitting on the balcony with a cup of tea and the fire blazing in the lounge, below the plasma screen TV was pretty much complete luxury - and at a fantastic price! You cannot get this kind of hotel in England for this sort of money - enjoy it! I would recommend upgrading to a deluxe room to make sure you get the best of the view - the extra is well worth it.
