The best staff and conference venue we have experienced in the past 10 years. I cannot recommend Riverside strongly enough. If the location and view did not do it for you the food certainly would. Fresh, vibrant, local produce prepared with love. Staff were professional and very accommodating working with all our changes. Definitely 5 stars!

It was all so nice and easy to organise a 3 day conference for 20 odd people. Staff were very accommodating and also organised evening meals and transport to and from restaurants. Great location, great food and great service.

We stayed here with our 3 children over january for a week and enjoyed it so much we went back 2 weeks later! The batches are great! Very clean and very well equipped. The facilities are excellent with a great pool and tennis courts and we had great fun with the kayaks. The staff are very lovely and go out... More

This was our second visit to Riverside Matakana, our previous stay being a year ago. The management team are incredibly welcoming and helpful, with no request being too much trouble. They clearly have a plan to continually improve the facilities and look of the property. Even in the space of a year since our last visit, the developments are evident.... More

What a gorgeous spot! Just a short drive from Auckland and you're in this beautiful rural coastal setting. We went as a family of 9 (parents, children and grandchildren) and rented 2 very comfortable baches for a long weekend. The bach was freshly decorated, well-appointed and attractive. Ours had a bedroom, another double bed in the living area and two... More

I had the pleasure of visiting the Riverside for a one day meeting Tanya and Michael were so helpful and welcoming. This place is absolutely brilliant and well worth a visit for a getaway or a business event. Congrats!

This is a place where you can truly get away from it all. Views for miles are of rolling green hills and trees with nothing disturbing the sound of the wind in the trees. Our cabin (Bach) was well equipped - it was a little warm when we arrived and the fridge was turned off, but once the doors and... More

The units are well designed with many amenities in them, including decent knives, washing machine, dryer, and barbecue. The outlook from the units is great, and each has an undercover area and a deck. The room is spacious, but not walls are flexible sliders, with gaps in them. Good for families. One thing not apparent from the photos is that... More

What a lovely place to stay and escape to from all the hustle and bustle of the city. Each cabin was like a flash city hotel inside with modern clean facilities and upmarket décor. The full slider wall partitioning added flexibility to the room layout, allowing open and private space as/when needed. Cooking facilities were adequate for us to take... More

What a lovely spot. The outlook from Bach 2 was lovely across the vines then the river to the other side of the valley. The unit was lovely with everything you need. The design of the units is also very clever with a nice deck and bbq. Definitely a come again place.
