Review of Grand Mercure Oakridge Resort Lake Wanaka
Jan 27, 2014
My first thought when writing this review was how disappointing it is when you go to a hotel and they make you pay for internet access in your room. Even some of the budget hotels and motels in New Zealand offer free wi-fi, so it was such a
turn-off that such a nice hotel would charge. I think it's just plain silly.
Anyways, the room was nice and comfortable. We did our laundry late at night and noticed people swimming in the pools long after they were supposed to be closed. We would have swam but were told that the pools closed shortly after we arrived, so that was a bit disappointing. The pools looked so nice.
Other than that, everything went well. The room was comfortable, etc. etc. Location sort of remote and away from town - but that can be nice too. A wonderful view of the mountains on your way into the hotel. The only other thing is that the laundry room was under construction, but we were lucky that no one else was using the room when we went.
I wish we had more time to spend at this resort - to swim!
