Riverside is a spectacular location perched right above the water on the eastern side of the Tuki Tuki River. Lodge 2 almost feels like it hangs over the river with spectacular views upstream, downstream and straight ahead to the awesome Eastern facing slopes of Te Mata Peak. While in its own private space, Riverside is just ten minutes drive from Havelock North - with wineries, restaurants, golf courses and beaches not far in all directions.

Guest Comments

Absolutely loved our weekend only wished we could have stayed a day or more longer. Facilities abound Our group booked 3 of the Riverside properties for a joint birthday celebration, we were lucky enough to stay at this property, enjoyed the turkish style pool pavilion, all beautifully set up. Rob and Belinda

Congratulations, what a fantastic entrance, a real surprise, loved everything It seemed you have not missed a thing, to wake up and see The Peak and the Tuki Tuki River every morning was a sensational experience. Trish

Riverside 2 was absolutely a wonderful experience!!! I have stayed in many accommodation facilities, but this one rates the highest. The most comfortable for 3 couples enabling privacy for the 6 of us, and the Hawkes Bay turned the weather on which was a bonus. We would all go back there in a heart beat! The roaring fire each night with a good bottle of HB red wine, was another plus. We would not hesitate in recommending this fantastic property!!!!  Lorraine
