We have stayed as a couple, and with family on a number of occasions and my expectations are always exceeded at Riverside ( and I am fussy!). The self contained apartments are set in beautiful and well maintained grounds on a hill side running down to the river, so many have water views. The apartments are set in clusters but screened from each other with clever planting. All have decks and outdoor furniture, separate sleep out ideal for another couple or older children, laundry and kitchen facilities and 2 sleeping areas in the main room, separated by sliding partitions, all have two full bathrooms. The decor is modern and crisp, wifi is free and unlimited ( many brownie points for this) and the apartment is thoughtfully provided with torches, robes, extra blankets and pillows etc, plus modern Weber BBQs. The beds were very comfortable and linen fresh and clean. A nice touch is daily servicing. The staff are extremely helpful and understand customer service to a tee.
Outdoor facilities include jetty, large swimming pool, and tennis court. The surrounding area is lovely to walk in. It is close to Matakana ( 5 min drive) but a car would be preferable. Activities nearby are numerous, whether requiring an active or leisurely holiday.
Well done Riverside, we look forward to an early return
