We stayed three nights at Retiro Lodge and loved every minute of it. Our hosts Robbert and Victor were lovely, very accommodating and always ready to have a chat.
We stayed in the Barn accommodation, which was well appointed, very comfortable and clean - it was so comfortable we spent a day in relaxing when the weather turned.
Victor is a wonderful cook and we ate dinner at the Lodge on our first night, which was delicious and he cooked a feast for breakfast every morning. The property itself is well cared for with a beautiful garden and farm, with many animals happy to say hello.
Make sure to but this on your destination list when you go to Nelson!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Retiro Park Lodge offers friendly, personalyzed, memorable accommodation in an oasis of quiet country luxury: Surrounded by an extensive garden, in a 90-acre park-like property, nestled amongst hills and sitting along the river in beautiful Teal Valley, but minutes away from Nelson City’s bustle. The property rears Llamas and Alpacas that roam freely in the paddocks surrounding the lodge and also has its own producing vineyard, olive and almond groves. Our Bed and Breakfast is a destination on its own and the perfect base to explore the region’s most sought after attractions: it is within easy reach for day excursions from “The Abel Tasman”, “Kahurangi” and “Nelson Lakes” National Parks and “The Marlborough Sounds” and its wine growing region. ... more less
