The oakridge is about 2.5 km from the centre of Wanaka, which is a very picturesque walk or $15 in a yellow taxi. The room facilities are excellent with the very front and back row of rooms/villas having good views of the mountains.
The staff were friendly and welcoming with good knowledge of local attractions. The only improvement we could find was the need for some shade on the restaurant windows. As it is summer the sun isn't setting until around 2100 and it pretty uncomfortable sitting in the restaurant around dinner time.
Thanks for a great stay

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a room with mountain views

Mercure Oakridge Hotel is the best hotel in Wanaka for you and your family. Big and spacious units, great spa and pools and friendly staff. The best place to just relax and rest.The only set back is the wifi connection, very slow and unreliable, everything else are perfect!

The suites were large and comfortable with full kitchen and washer/dryer. Try to get a view toward the mountains. The breakfasts were typical buffet style. As many tour groups use the motel, the café can get crowded—however just wait a few minutes as they all have to hurry to make their bus and then the café gets less hectic.

We got a one bedroom villa style room, it had a kitchen and lounge area which was great. Location is only about 5-10min from the town which is fine if you have a car. By cab it cost about 15 dollars one way.

Good value!

The pool/spas are great too

Spent first 15 minutes wiping the dead Mosquitos off the ceiling. Otherwise the room was just adequate but not up to 4 star quality. Too far out of town to walk for an evening meal so took a taxi and found a superb restaurant . WGK on the front. Woken up in middle of night by the patter of tiny feet in the ceiling above. Too heavy for mice!!! Reception informed on checkout
Opened the curtains to find a painter on our balcony. Luckily we were only here for one night.

Stayed: November 2016

Dear baytreefarm,

We regret that you did not enjoy your stay with us and take your comments regarding room cleanliness very seriously. Insects can enter the room easily if net curtains and drapes are not pulled and the lights left on, so we do not recommend doing this. We are located 3km from the town center of Wanaka. We do apologize for the painter found on our balcony and we have spoken to the company as to why proper communication was not made with us in regards to which rooms was being painted and when. We wish you all the best on your onward travels.
