Toward the end of our New Zealand Vacation, we spent three nights with Susan and Garth at their Matakana Country Lodge - and barely scratched the surface of the area. How can someone spend just one? In two and a half days we packed in...More

You are so right about staying more than one night as there is so much to do in Matakana region. It was so nice to see a couple that made the effort to see and do as much as possible , including a rugby game...More

Quite a journey up from the main road (at least by UK standards) but worth it. A warm welcome from Garth and Susan plus a wonderfully equipped and spacious lodge awaited us. There is a warm hot tub, though we didn't use it. A novel...More

Thanks for your feedback Alison. Yes the drive up to the Lodge is quite something - not everyone likes driving on a gravel road but that is part of living in the country. The night sky on a clear evening still that takes our breath...More

We arrived in the rain and felt warmly greeted, with umbrellas waiting. Pre-dinner drinks and introductions were enjoyable and wonderfully hosted. A great opportunity to meet new people and yet relaxing. We stayed in the Chardonnay Room, our room of choice, with a little run...More

What a fantastic weekend. We especially loved the happy hour, nibbles and wine. On the first evening we were introduced to the other guests and had a lovely time, conversation and humour. Next morning, full Kiwi breakfast, followed by Susan taking us on a tour...More

Thanks for taking the time out to write a review. We too enjoyed your company and our in depth discussions about life in general. Thanks also for the suggestions you gave us on marketing the lodge and ideas to enhance the look and feel. We...More

The Matakana Country Lodge is situated high in the Matakana Area Hills with a lovely view of the surrounding area. We arrived late in the afternoon after making our way through a few of the local vineyards. The Room itself was lovely, to be honest...More

We have hosted hundreds of breakfasts between October 2012 when you stayed and today, that I cannot recall the discussion you mention in your review. We consider ourselves professionals in the accommodation industry who have the fortune to meet a large cross section of people...More
