We loved our stay here in this beautiful quiet haven away from the bustle of Nelson. Robert and Victor couldn't have looked after us better... We loved our arts/deco bedroom in the house opening on to the veranda, but spotted the other bedroom over the garage was equally nice but more contemporary. Both of us enjoyed watching the cats sort...

Our two-night stay at Retiro Park Lodge was not nearly long enough to enjoy its many charms. Everything about it is beautiful, charming and welcoming. Robbert has managed to take what was once a very barren piece of land and turn it into a lush paradise and a plain and worn house and turn it into an architectural delight. No...

The grounds, the room, the patio, the pool, the animals, the treehouse were all so captivating we couldnt tear our selves away! Robert is a wonderful, fun, gracious host, we loved talking with him. We had the patio room, loved sitting outside near the fireplace under the grapevines. The room is spacious with a sitting area, sink and fridge. The...

The reviews made so far on tripadvisor aren't wrong. This was a lovely 2 night stay in Teal Valley. Robbert and Victor have a beautiful setting for the lodge, and those who like a steep brisk walk to see alpacas, miniature horses, donkeys , ducks, cats and other wildlife have the opportunity to do so without ever leaving the property....

An excellent B&B in a beautiful setting. We stayed for 3 nights in "the Barn" and absolutely loved it. The room was very spacious yet cozy and comfortable. Great attention to detail. The bathroom was clean; only negative was low water pressure in the shower. Breakfasts were phenomenal!! Robert was so gracious and welcomed and entertained us each and every...

Wish that we spent more than two days on this 90-acre property, nestled in the beautiful Teal Valley. Throughly enjoyed the hosts, their lovely home, farm, private vineyard and olive grove. Purchased a beautiful alpaca blanket to remind us of our stay.

This place is a complete one off- the hospitality was second to none. The room was very spacious and beautifully decorated and the conservatory where breakfast was served was charming. The gardens ares stunning and the various ducks and alpacas adding to the scene. it is in an area of stunning scenery, I suggest getting directions to help find it....

A few years back my wife and I stayed at Retiro Park Lodge and had a fantastic time. When we decided to go back to New Zealand this B&B was the only B&B that we had to stay at again! We stayed in the Barn which provides a spacious room and a bit of solitude at the end of the...

The last three nights of our NZ trip we stayed at Retiro Park - and disregarding NZ magnificent nature this was the best place on our journey. It started with a very warm welcome. In a moment we found ourselves at a friends place not at a commercial B&B. The room was big,clean and wonderful decorated. Every little peace was...

We stayed at Retiro Park Lodge a couple of weeks before Christmas. Our first night on the South Island after crossing the Straits. Our boat arrived late afternoon and the day before I suddenly realised I hadn't thought about dinner. A quick e-mail to Robbert and he offered up lamb, with mussels as a starter - what more could you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Retiro Park Lodge offers friendly, personalyzed, memorable accommodation in an oasis of quiet country luxury: Surrounded by an extensive garden, in a 90-acre park-like property, nestled amongst hills and sitting along the river in beautiful Teal Valley, but minutes away from Nelson City’s bustle. The property rears Llamas and Alpacas that roam freely in the paddocks surrounding the lodge and also has its own producing vineyard, olive and almond groves. Our Bed and Breakfast is a destination on its own and the perfect base to explore the region’s most sought after attractions: it is within easy reach for day excursions from “The Abel Tasman”, “Kahurangi” and “Nelson Lakes” National Parks and “The Marlborough Sounds” and its wine growing region. ... more   less
