I am so glad that I had the opportunity to stay at the Retreat. The dorm rooms were fairly empty when I stayed so that made it quiet and peaceful which was nice. I loved the layout of the room with the beds on the floor. It was cozy and welcoming.
The staff came to pick me up in the town when I called so it was nice that they were so flexible otherwise I wouldn't have had a way to get there.
The kitchen was one of the nicest I came across in NZ. With coffee/tea, oil, utensils etc. It was fully stocked and clean. Someone cares about this place and it's obvious. If I could have, I would have stayed more nights!
Thanks for a wonderful stay.
