River Birches was the second of four stops on our wedding/honeymoon trip to NZ in the fall (October 2013). The lodge is beautifully decorated, impeccably kept and very relaxing. The gardens are serene and the property is walking distance from the River. Anthea was the perfect hostess, knowing just the right amount of interaction/guidance and privacy needed. We stayed in “The Mayor’s Room,” where the views of the garden, luxurious bath, and private nature of the room made it memorable. Breakfast each day was excellent and Anthea’s tips and hints about what to see in the area were right on target. We would highly recommend River Birches.
