For my birthday this year I thought it would be great to go away for some special time with hubby without the kids. After extensively searching for somewhere in the Matakana region I decided to book the Champagne room at the Matakana Country Lodge. The reasons for choosing this place over several others was that the suite had a large bath, fancy shower and the property had an inviting outdoor swimming pool.
We were warmly greeted by Garth on our arrival and shown around the property and then to our room. The house is lovely, the grounds beautifully kept and stunning views all around.
Our suite was peaceful, private, clean and very spacious. There are a few minor improvements which could be made to enhance the experience of staying in this room however - things like fresh flowers instead of artificial arrangements, individual toiletries instead of large bottles, a bin for teabags etc and perhaps a welcome folder of information rather than a single laminated page - just little touches. That said, it was a lovely room overall and the bed supremely comfortable!
Our hosts were very friendly and interesting to talk to, as well as knowledgeable about the area. We really enjoyed Susan's homecooked breakfasts (especially the pancakes!) and dining alfresco with the beautiful view was a great way to start the day.
If you're looking for a nice relaxing place to stay in Matakana then I would certainly recommend this one.
