Complete Relaxation
Without doubt this is the most luxurious experience I've ever had. My husband and I had two wonderful nights at Rippinvale Retreat in Hanmer Springs. From our arrival when there was home made baking, to wine and canapés at 6pm to chocolates on our pillow at night, our hosts Helen and John, couldn't have made us feel more welcome. The totally delicious home made breakfast (served after 9am!) kept us going until dinner time. I thoroughly recommend Rippinvale Retreat to couples that want some spoiling!
