In truth we chose the wrong place in the Oakridge Grand Mercure at Wanaka. If you're on a quiet weekend trip, or looking for a resort with all the bells and whistles for the family it's great. As a one night stand on a five week road trip, it's not. With all the stuff to be dragged in then taken out the next day up and down a narrow staircase, it's a bind. Add to that that there's next to nowhere to stow stuff and it really didn't meet our needs. That said. it's a nice place. The room is as good as filled with a king size bed and the space above the stairwell is cunningly utilised as a quasi "love nest" seating and table arrangement. More often than not that would have been used as a wardrobe, but instead there's a cut down version to one side of the room. In the room there's a fridge which spring hinges left hand behind the right hand side of the door. ( if that gives you a headache working it out, just wait for the one when you let go of the fridge door to reach something inside!). There's tea and coffee making facility but the only available plug socket is tight under the tiny writing desk between wardrobe and entry corridor. The shower room is very good and features his and hers wash basins for exceedingly thin couples! However, all in all, we found it clean, very tidy, tastefully decorated and totally impractical!
