We stayed in Oakridge Resort for 2 weeks and it was excellent accommodation with all yoou expect, pools, sauna, gym, bar and restaurant. The staff cannot do enough for you and everyone is only too willing to assist you. Free papers every day. Great views of the snow covered peaks. Cinema 5 minutes walk. We originally wanted to stay in Queenstown and could not get into the Time Share there and selected Wanaka and we are so glad we did. We went to Queenstown for the day and only spent 1 hour there and would not go back there, too commercialised and busy. Wanaka is laid back, no stess. Everyone you could ever want is in Wanaka and the scenery is better, the walking and mountain bike tracks are excellent and varied. We will be back to Wanaka next year and plan to stay 3 weeks. It is a great base to see glaciers, Mt. Cook, Milford Sound, Dunedin and of course all the snow resorts. The resorts of Cardrona and Triple Cone are accessed from Wanaka with plenty of great snow. Don't go to Queenstown, staqy at Oakridge Resort and have a great time in Wanaka.
