We stayed here for one night, on our way to Paihia. When we had been there for a short while we wondered why why our agent didn't book is at least four days. There is a lot to do in the area and we wished we had the opportunity to explore. We were very fortunate to have stayed at this... More

We only stayed here one night but thoroughly enjoyed it. Our hosts, Robin and Dianne couldn't have been nicer. Wonderful location, beautiful views, an excellent room and a lovely breakfast! We highly recommend this B&B to anyone requiring a top class service.

Sugarloaf's hilltop location provides stunning views. The rooms are generous and beautifully appointed. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming and provided a great breakfast! - everything you could wish for from a "boutique" B&B !

Delightful hosts, generous and elegant rooms, generous welcome-refreshment, stunning view from hilltop over vineyards, meadows and sea-skyline. A very nice place to stay longer to enjoy the garden, the skyline of vineyards, the near beaches, the village of Matakana and surrounding area with its lovely shops and restaurants.

During our two night stay in Diane and Robin's marvellous hilltop lodge, we felt we had found a gem from which to explore the beautiful area of Matakana. Our chic cottage suite was beautifully decorated and comfortably appointed, with many thoughtful touches. These new owners have refurbished their lodge with an attention to detail that was impressive. The landscaping on... More

We recently spent two nights at Sugerloaf Lodge - we came away feeling relaxed, recharged and ready to face city life again. Our room was immaculate and very well appointed, the bed extremely comfortable and the views stunning and tranquil. The breakfast was delicious - we loved the home-made marmalade!

We needed to get out of the city and smell the roses and Sugarloaf Lodge provided exactly what we were after. Peace, rural and panoramic beauty...........and quiet.

We stayed for an evening to attend a wedding in Matakana. The lodge is in a very peaceful location with wonderful views and welcoming hosts who provide a tasty breakfast. Very quiet at night so you get an excellent sleep! Centrally located with easy access to Matakana and all it's delights.

I'm very sorry to say this was not value for money at $300 per night and it wasn’t even clean. There were runs down the outside of the toilet and the inside of the lid. The shower screen was not clean and the throw on the bed needed washing too. We had taken some fruit and wanted to cut a... More

We can only apologise for the cleanliness - we are generally most particular, but we have had the busiest summer in our existence although this should not be used as an excuse.
