We were pleased to be able to make this booking as Matakana is very popular. The accommodation has a very pleasant view and you really feel like you are away from it all. The unit had everything one needed, and everything was of excellent quality. Everything was spotlessly clean and well kept. Robin and Dianne are lovely hosts, who went out of their way to assist but privacy was respected. The continental breakfast was perfect and welcome drinks snd snacks on arrival also a lovely touch. Highly recommended.
Stayed for only one night - wish it could have been longer. Lovely room with very comfortable bed and excellent outside space. We also had sole use of the sunroom, other than breakfast time. We sat outside and enjoyed the views for hours! Rob kindly booked us a table for dinner at the Matakana Market Kitchen which serves great food. Breakfast was served by Dianne who chatted with us and the other guests. Continental breakfast which was fresh and set us up for the day. This property is excellent and I would highly recommend it.
Wonderful hosts, Robin and Dianne who made us feel so at home in their home. This Lodge was in a stunning location overlooking the Omaha beach in the far distance and the fields of Matakana. Our room was perfectly comfortable and beautifully designed and decorated. The bed faced east and we could look out over the valley. Dianne brought us a tray of wine and selection of nibbles including cheese in the evening which we enjoyed on the verandah. Breakfast was perfect for us and what we would normally eat at home. We should have booked for a longer stay instead of an overnight sleepover .
Trying to differentiate between the places we stayed at ended up no 14 of 15 BBs/Lodges/Hotels based on our personal scoring between accommodation standard, hosting, breakfast and location. Not sure if the owners are really engage in the B&B life, average breakfast, room was disappointing. Location was great.
Beautiful views and very comfortable accommodation. Robin was the perfect host - very helpful without being overbearing. The wine and snacks were very much appreciated and breakfast was delicious. Great area only sorry we didn’t have time to explore further.
