Our stay at the Grand Mercure Oakridge Resort Lake Wanaka for 2 weeks was a just great and we had a wonderful time. It is such a relaxing atmosphere with friendly staff and great amenities. Staff there was able to advise us of the best places to visit during our stay at the Resort. We had a 2 bedroom spacious apartment with separate bathrooms with heated towel racks, laundry facilities in house; kitchen adequate for our stay as we cooked meals a couple of times. We also dined just a short walk to the restaurant where the meals were delicious, presented well and service was timely. We also visited the Lone Star Restaurant and Francesca’s for meals which were in walking distance.
The scenery was excellent with views on the surrounding mountains, lovely gardens, great pool and spa area.
One disappointment was the TV – small screen, some problems with the video as built in and did not work in some of the rooms. Some channels did not work some of the time. A technician did come to check the connections but hubby missed the car race (had to go out to watch it).
I would recommend Grand Mercure Oakridge Resort Lake Wanaka as a destination to visit. It is not far from the ski fields.
