We would come back for sure & have recommended to our friends. OK it is a bit of a drive from Russell but just pick up a couple of pies at the bakery and relax & enjoy the view. At night the stars are incredible. There is so much to see in this area, next time we'll stay a week. Rob & Bren Oakville Ontario

We enjoyed our stay at Waikato retreat.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Waikato retreat.

It is in a lovely setting, very relaxing, and had everything we needed.

It was further from Russell than we thought - 10-15 minutes.

It hadn't been opened up for a while and smelt musty.

The spa pool is in front of the owners house so didn't look very private, we didn't have a spa.

The kitchen needed to be cleaned.
