“Great for family.”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

Resort is not exactly located in the heart of wanaka, its only a short drive when heading to town about 3km. Pool was always used by us as our toddler loves the swimming pool. They also have the gym, sauna and spa to enjoy.

Beautiful hotel and location.
On check in offered a special at the spa facilities, unfortunately after further enquires there were no vacancies for our stay. Why make the offer? Disappointing.
Refused a knife to slice some cheese as we hadn't booked a kitchenette?? One was available should we like to pay for an ungrade!!
Room was small but adequate however, accessing the fridge was awkward due to clashing doors with the wardrobe.
Overall full of potential but disapponting

After having checked in around 14:00 (no problems with the check-in procedure) we wanted to take a swim in one of the pools, only to find that one was covered and another was in the process of being serviced. We had forgotten our pool towels in the apartment, but the girl working in the pool area told us we cold get some from the reception (located in a different building). Still not sure why the hotel kept the spare towels in the reception and not actually in the pool area where needed!) We fancied a beverage whilst sitting next to the pool, but a sign said that the bar was closed and guests would have to go to the main bar (again in a different building). In the main bar we were told that this was closed until 16:00! In other words: If we wanted a beverage before 16:00 we would have had to get into our car and drive to Wanaka! We did that... but we brought with us our suitcases. The Assistant Manager couldn't really see the problem that he was running a dry hotel.

For the money i think the Grand Mercure Oakridge was about right. The room was small but serviceable and nicely decorated. The few complaints we had were: a) the card key/lock was quite temperamental, sometimes having to try it 6 or 7 times before it would open. b) Check-in took quite a while as we waited for the receptionist who wasn't welcoming at all. c) breakfast was also a little bit underwhelming.
Overall our stay was fine nothing great but nothing terrible.

p.s The hot pools are great! but we couldn't get the sauna going.

I had read bad things about the Grand Mercure (Oakridge) re noise transference but we were given one of the little low set bungalows which were just great. Nice sized unit with spa bath!! Restaurant was nice but selections limited. Beware of the hot spa pools. I don't think that they work and some of them look rather dirty. The other pools though (there are 3) were great. We had a nice time here (service was very good) and would go back in ski season.

Room Tip: If there is just two you you ask for one of the little bungalow rooms. They were lovely
