Arrived at River Valley Lodge and found ourselves in the middle of a frat party - a Kiwi Experience bus had also arrived that afternoon. We were welcomed with a Jack if interest and information. Very uncomfortable. Part of our stay was dinner in the main common room - dinner was fine, the atmosphere was not. We have left the appetite for this type of party behind 15yrs ago (we are 35) Luckily our room was not in the main building. The room was Nice and clean and near the River. Next morning is was totally unclear How to order breakfast and the staff we asked about this shrugged their schoulders. Eventually ordered breakfast which was nice and were finished in the Nick of time to join the rafting Tour we had booked for the morning. Unfortunately the rest of the participants were the same as those from the kiwi experience. One could consider more carefully selecting participants for these kinds of trips. Would never recommend friends to do this. Our guide Nathan was excellent and managed the kids to the best of his ability.
Although the Lodge is beautifully situated we didn’t get to enjoy it because of the other guests, this was a real let down. More
