Recently attended a Wedding at this awesome spot. The grounds & the cabins were so nice, and it was great having all the friends and family stay together. Perfect for this type of thing. Quite informal & laid back if that's what you like. The Staff seemed friendly (maybe not enough staff but it was a busy time) and the... More

Love tangiaro and pop in for snacks everytime we are up that way but our last visit put us off .. Attended a friends wedding on the weekend and was very disappointed, all the beautiful local artwork has gone and it looks like an old lady vomited her hoarded treasures around the building .. Has ugly death trap rugs floor... More

After 3 weeks touring NZ our final destination was at at the Tangiaro Kiwi Retreat. It is quite a drive to get there via windy roads (which our 3 kids just about dealt with), but the nature is amazing. We arrived in NYE and arrived into our spacious one bedroom chalet (number 4). In the living room was a double... More

The only con would be the gravel road to the retreat. The rest is all good. The spa was very relaxing and the lodges themselves had everything needed. We only had one dinner at the place but it was nice as well. Reception does answer calls pretty late in the morning so a thing to be cautious about. Staff was... More

We called in on the off chance when we saw the sign at the gate and hoped to get a coffee but were very pleasantly surprised to realise it was a restaurant and we were in time for lunch. We had a friendly welcome from a fellow Brit and took a table in the covered area outside looking over the... More

Absolutely superb accommodation with just about everything needed in the cabins, dishwashers microwave., washing and drying machines, top class cutlery crockery glasses etc free Jacuzzi on site and a reasonable restaurant as well. If you are about to visit the area... More

A long drive on unsealed roads but worth the effort. Rooms are little houses with everything you need, lovely large comfy beds. Quality through out. Beautiful location and great spot to base yourself to walk Coastal Tramp at top of peninsular. The walk up river to the swimming hole is very sweet as well. Check out opens late so be... More

Each of the cottages is really a little house. Clean spacious and packed with all the amenities you would need. Fridge oven and range top as well as all the crockery and eating utensils you would need if you bought your own food which we didn't. Nice bath robes and slippers too, no bath but a nice shower with good... More

A great place to stay to rest and relax. It is indeed a kiwi retreat. Friendly staff. Spa pools are great. Recommend a swim in the waterhole. A reasonably good selection of food on the restaurant menu. They make a good coffee. This area is a great example of an "old NZ" holiday destination - down a few kilometres of... More

We apologise for the problems that arose during your stay . Unfortunately a key staff member had a medical emergency on Christmas day and this left us short staffed between Christmas and New Years. This required us to use less experienced staff on front of house and we apologise for any confusion caused by this. The dinner booking process, spa... More
