We had a wonderful time at RiverRidge Retreat. We stayed in the Queen ensuite suite, which was larger and more comfortable than we'd expected. The bed was super comfortable, the kitchenette had everything we needed, including cooktop, microwave and fridge; there was a sofa, dining table and lots of options to sit outdoors too. The place was immaculately clean and, with a walk-in shower, would also have been suitable for anyone with mobility issues. We wanted to stay close to the Catlins Valley River walk, so the location was ideal for us and we would definitely come back to stay again. They appeared to have many different accommodation options. It was so peaceful, with vast, beautiful, grounds. The best wifi signal is close to the function centre.
