Stayed at Oakridge Resort for 1 night in studio room. The location for this hotel is quite far from town center if you're walking, only 5-10 minutes drive by car.

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...

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.
