A friend from Melbourne and I stayed here for 2 nights, The bach had everything we needed, 2 bathrooms. It was lovely and warm. Best of all the guy who checked us in was super friendly he arranged a massage each on the property which was amazing!! I will bring the family here some day for sure.

If you want to stay in the Matakana area, I recommend this accommodation. Set in a vineyard on the side of a hill that faces the afternoon sun, it is gorgeous. The accommodation is very spacious and modern. The villa I stayed at was slightly odd in that you enter through the bedroom but this didn't matter. The kitchen and...

Fantastic location for a small boutique resort. Accommodation is chalet style (in NZ we call these bach's). Chalets are well presented with all fittings new and of good quality. If booking, request one a bit higher up as the chalets lower have no views. All are private and set out so you aren't overlooked and don't hear noise from other...

Had a lovely time with friends in a tranquil countryside atmosphere. Ideal location if you want to get away from a busy life. Hosts were very helpful and welcoming. Comfortable and well appointed accommodation.

We were two families of three and we squeezed into one bach to save some dollars. It was perfectly fine - helped by having two bathrooms. Our boys were 12 and you have to leave the doors unlocked at night so they can come in so I would;t feel comfortable with this for younger children - but great for our...

Having left the children for two nights with their Dads, we had a lovely relaxing girls' weekend. The bach was lovely and had everything we needed and the deck overlooked the vines and river. Having a swimming pool and petanque on site was great. Very friendly staff too. Would suit couples or families and I'm sure we'll be back in...

One of the best bachs we stayed in , in our 7 weeks in New Zealand. The Bach had sleeping for 6 , a large sitting area, great kitchen, and a lovely location in vineyard. The resort had a tennis court, kayaks, and swimming pool set along the river. Beds were comfortable,location lent itself to a good nigh sleep.

This was a repeat visit having stayed here two years ago for a night, this time we stayed for 5 nights. Once again we were very impressed with the size, the cleanliness and the facilities at the Bach. We stayed in a very quiet position (Bach 1). There was plenty of places to visit - vineyards, beautiful walks etc. We...

My wife and I stayed here for one night in suite No 11 as part of a one week battery recharging.

The best staff and conference venue we have experienced in the past 10 years. I cannot recommend Riverside strongly enough. If the location and view did not do it for you the food certainly would. Fresh, vibrant, local produce prepared with love. Staff were professional and very accommodating working with all our changes. Definitely 5 stars!
