Oakridge Resort Lake Wanaka
Ranked #14 of 20 Hotels in Wanaka
Reviewed 16 March 2014

We rented 2 rooms for one night for our family. The price was very reasonable at around $110/room for the accommodation. The downside was the shower was very small, basically a tub with a glass partition at the shower head. The breakfast was reasonable for the quality of the food, although the service left something to be desired. We would stay there again, all things considered.

I stayed with friends in a two bed apartment. It was well furnished and clean. Plenty of parking on site. There was a pool but it was too cold to use it. Wifi was charged for and as I have said elsewhere NZ is way behind in providing wifi for guests - it is part of life in 2014 and travellers need to keep in touch.

Stayed at Oakridge Resort for two nights on our way to Fox Glacier. We were extremely happy with our guest room, comfortable and modern. The hotel was in a convenient location only a five minute drive to the town centre. We loved the overall atmosphere around the resort, extremely quiet and relaxing. The several small hot tubs around the pool area were great, as it allowed us a hot tub to ourselves. We dined in the restaurant on our last night, the food was amazing and wait staff extremely friendly, however maybe slightly understaffed as the restaurant was fully booked and there were only three of them. Overall a wonderful stay, one of our favourite hotels on our New Zealand holiday!

We have been members of Accor hotels for 17 years & the Vacation Club for 11years. We were driving back from Picton to Queenstown & decided to stop off at the Mercure Oakridge. It was not clear to find as it was badged Williams rather than Mercure. The room rate was off the Internet the night previous & was good value. We did not use the hot tubs or pools as we drove to Mt Cook & then decided to stay an extra night. The food in the restaurant was enjoyable especially at the Advantage Plus Card rate. The staff were friendly but seemed understaffed at times. We never tend to write adverse comments as we are loyal Accor members but we did find it strange to have an ironing board & no iron (even in the laundry which was undergoing renovation). Also no hair dryer. Managed well without them but normally they are provided Also a dangerous piece of wood ripped off below the place where cases are stowed and two nasty nails stuck out - quite dangerous & we reported it. Check in was slow in fact we were not acknowleged whilst the receptionist took three lengthy phone calls. We are entitled to free WIFI at proper Accor resorts but were told at Wanaka that we had 30 minutes regardless of how many nights we stayed. Very unusual! We are currently in a Sydney Pullman Hotel and it is excellent. We do not believe in making adverse comments. The above review states the facts as we found them. It was explained to us that there are Vacation Club apartments but reception only really only act as a sort of 'booking agency ' for Accor like Wotif or Expedia. There seems to be some sort of identity crisis here! Anyway, enjoyed stay for a couple of nights & price reasonable.

We booked here because we needed to add another night in Wanaka and this hotel offered a special last-minute price. The resort is a little ways out of town, but it's a nice place. We had a king bedroom with a large balcony facing the mountains. The food in the restaurant was good. There is also a café just across the street.
