We were looking for a one night escape from the city for a bit of R&R before the birth of our first child. Matakana Castle was perfect for this. John and Nat instantly made us feel welcome and little touches like the evening drinks with nibbles and the homemade chocolates in the rooms added to the experience. They were really helpful when it came to booking somewhere in Matakana for dinner and were able to offer us good advice about local walks and attractions. Nat even went to the trouble of making sure the breakfast was all things that I could eat being pregnant. Her homemade muesli is sublime as were the pancakes! And the views from our room (the Writing Room) and the living room made us feel like we had completely escaped the city.
