It looks nice but lots of flaws. The main pools are nice but the 'hot tubs' were pretty grotty. The normal spa bubbles don't work on them and the water in both the ones I tried was full of plant and insect debris. Food was very average. They sent a medium rare steak out very well done and then after... More

The hotel is situated some 2.5 km outside the town, which is a good walk there and back. Wan aka is often very windy, perhaps also rainy, so good clothing is necessary. The hotel consists of a number of two-story units, ask for one with a view to the pools. The pools are very nice, indeed, even in rain. The... More

We stayed for 2 nights and the rooms were nice and clean. The walls were a bit 'thin' as we could hear everything that was going on the next room. We had to pay for internet which was disappointing. The pools were great, as was the sauna. Wouldve liked to have swum in the lap pool, but its not heated.

Stayed here for just one night in a studio apartment. We found the apartment had everything we needed and was a good size, everything was clean and comfortable. Enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tubs too, would definitely have liked to stay longer!

After driving long hours, climbing things, jumping off things, running walking, sailing and generally exhausting ourselves with all the south island has to offer, Oakridge was absolute heaven! Fully equipped with a heated pool, 7 mini hot tubs, a spa, a gym, a bar and an excellent restaurant we wanted for nothing and left feeling rested and refreshed! Highly recommend.

A short walk or drive to the lake. With pool, restaurant, beautician and masseuse on site. The is place is fully accommodating for anytime of the year. Rooms are tidy and spacious. Lots of parking. Had a big day hiking or skiing then why not get in a hot tub and be served a glass of wine while you soak

This hotel was good for our 1 night stopover, but it is just a shame that it could be a lot better with a bit of investment. Staff were great and our room was large with a comfortable bed, but it was showing signs of age, and although the windows had curtains the opaque glass door did not. It was... More

We stayed in a king studio room. However when we first got there the dvd player wouldnt work as someone had jammed a disk inside. Instead of fixing the problem the staff had just put duct tape over the dvd player to stop guests from using it. I asked for a different room and they were nice enough to upgrade... More
