We had an unexpected occasion where a family group of about 35 needed accommodation. We found it at this retreat and we were all able to stay together. The staff were incredibly willing and so easy to deal with. The lodge we stayed in was basic but very clean. As a group we were so thankful for all the assistance...

Driving to our room through the complex we had a sense of the history of the place. The unit was absolutely beautiful inside, recently renovated, it was well set out, clean, beautifully furnished. With a choice of 5 beds over two stories it was a fight over who got what. The beds were very comfortable, the shower was amazing. We...

Excellent location for a school trip. Huge open spaces. Food was amazing, packed lunches that were supplied were very filling and healthy. Cabin today and beds were comfortable. Great place to have a heap of children. Would definitely come back again to stay with my own family on a trip to wellington

The room was very well appointed, with a comfortable bed. The unit had all the facilities we needed with a well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge furniture, and spacious bathroom. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The location overlooking the Hutt river was very quiet and peaceful. A great place for a restful stay .

I stayed for a couple of nights and it was very nice, the just renewed rooms are very cozy and warm and the old style buildings makes us feel in an old film. I just loved it. The service was great, it was raining and the receptionist drove me to my room. I would definitely recommend it.

This place is not at all like how it is portrayed on it's website. The reception looks lovely but it's only a front. Go round the corner to where most of the rooms are and it's like a scene from a horror film. Buildings are run down and forgotten like it's an old abandoned farm and not in a good...
