  • What a delight to arrive to Durie Vale Retreat

    What a delight to arrive to Durie Vale Retreat. From the moment we walked in we felt at home and very comfortable. Refreshing decor, clean and welcoming, lovely views, comfy beds, great shower, everything we needed and so much more. High attention to detail through out. Fabulous location meant we could enjoy a short walk along the River, over the bridge and into town. Thrilled to have discovered this gem and hoping to stay again when next in Whanganui. We highly recommend to other guests.
