Our stay at Soothing Riverside was absolutely perfect, can not fault it at all. We were so happy with the accommodation and amenities provided. The property is set next to a beautiful river, total peace and quiet, just what our family needed. Close to Taumaranui for supermarket etc and close to National Park/Mountain for adventures. Suzanne and her husband were very welcoming, helpful and friendly, we miss them already!!! We can not wait to rebook to come back and stay. Thank you Middleton Family
