We spent a glorious few days in this wonderful resort. The bach and the facilities were immaculate and the staff extremely helpful friendly. We used their complimentary kayaks and tennis rackets and of course had a dip in the pool. The resort offered free wifi (strong signal) and each bach offered residents utmost privacy. The location was perfect, only a...

For some reason we rather thought Riverside was a fairly small operation overlooking the river. It's not. It's big, with a lot of baches, not exactly intimate. The river is an estuary and not really visible. The baches are of a fairly cheap modular construction. For the price, I was a little underwhelmed. That said, it was reasonably roomy and...

With a family size weber and picnic wine glasses for our outdoor use. Arriving at night the temperature was cool and the option of the fireplace was convenient and...

We stayed here as part of a large group attending a wedding nearby. The best thing is the gorgeous surrounds - from the deck of any of the apartments there are stunning views of the New Zealand countryside. The apartments themselves can be set up in such a way to suit a number of different sleeping arrangements. If I was...

A fabulous set up - cosy fire, beautiful quiet setting and very comfortable. We only had one night (sans kids) and wished it was longer! Would highly recommend! It is a little way from Matakana so you'll need a car - or organise a taxi in advance. Alternatively, do what we did and take advantage of the great local wine...

Warmly greeted by Michael on arrival and shown to the conference room. Our group of 10 was easily accommodated as the room was large but still had a homely feel to it. Great food at all our break and lunch sessions. Only suggestion to make would be if the work session is going to be all day, the hard wooden...
