  • Loved staying at the House of Retro

    Loved staying at the House of Retro. Much bigger ban I thought and it is afresh property if you have kids. Amazing neighborhood and the spa was an added bonus. We will definitely be staying there again!

  • Loads of room for our group of five women

    Loads of room for our group of five women. The spa was fabulous and having eggs, bacon, coffee etc included in the price was a nice touch. Only a 25-minute walk to town through Central Park. Thanks for a great stay.

    Great property! Was better than we could have hoped for. Immaculately clean/tidy, well equipped and very comfortable. Like a very nice home away from home. Thanks Rhys.
