The rooms were large, warm and comfortable. However they were a little tired and worn in places. The Spa, Sauna and Pools were also not hot - which was disappointing given it is promoted as a spa resort. But we had a nice stay.

Everything seemed great until I got into bed, it was so itchy and horrible. Felt like there were hundreds of things biting me. I got out and slept on the couch for a while but woke up freezing so had to go back to that horrible bed, I would have had a better sleep sleeping in my car, pretty sure there are bed bugs in that bed.

Room was modern and spacious. We also enjoyed the pool and the onsite restaurant was excellent. The only negative was that the refrigerator in the room was barely cold.

We enjoyed our stay at Oakridge.The hot pools were relaxing and a real bonus. Our bed was very comfortable. The apartment was a good size. I would stay here again.

The swimming pools and spa pools were just right for an active summer holiday,the apartment had all the requirements for self catering and self laundry. You need a car to get full access to down town and drives in the country side.

We arrived expecting good things from a rated 4 star resort. It was a warm day and were given a room on the sunny non breezy side of the resort. There are no aircons and no fans. It was a sauna. I enquired about a cooler room and was told there was one available but it would cost me $100 more with no view and at least the room I was given had a view. Well no it didn't. There was a view but we couldn't sit on the balcony to enjoy it as it was too hot and sunny. I asked for a fan and was given one. The cord on the fan was too short to reach the available power points unless we plugged it in to the bed side table. Couldn't leave the curtains open to catch any breeze through the windows as there would obviously be no privacy and the outside security lights lit up the room like daylight. At one point during the night we were joined in bed by the beside lamp which fell into bed when the blind blew open and knocked it over. Dirty finger marks on the cupboards showed they aren't cleaned properly and the ancient tv didn't work properly. Would not recommend during the warmer months.
