This is one of the best places we've been to for a weekend getaway. All the little things that normally bug you in holiday accommodation are not left to chance here. Heaps of space in the lodging, immaculate grounds and picturesque views await. Can't wait to come back.

We spent a long weekend at Riverside Matakana. A beautiful property situated amongst grape vines with stunning views. Very relaxing with all the home comforts and plenty of space for the kids to bike and run around with no roads nearby. The tennis court was popular with our family, and the pool would have been a a hit, but we... More

We had a fabulous relaxing long weekend in the great little bach. All the comforts, great view and we loved the fire for cosy nights in. The hosts made us feel very welcome. We spent a great morning at the Brick Bay Sculpture Walk, there is something for everyone there.

I have just completed a 3 day conference for 30 plus delegates at Riverside Matakana. The venue itself is gorgeous, clean spacious luxury baches, warm gas fires as well as the most fantastic rural views you could ask for. It was the service that set this place apart for me. I have organised similar conferences in multiple venues around the... More

Recently stayed here with my nearly teenage daughters and have to say this was one of the loveliest places we've stayed! Everything you could want was already catered for. Really clean and beautifully decorated. Loads of room, warming fire, covered deck, outdoor pool, etc. etc. Our hosts were delightful, friendly and very helpful, as were all the staff we encountered... More

Wen had a fantastic weekend stay at Riverside Matakana. The setting was private and sunny with great views. The staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. The area has so much to do, the real highlight was the Tarawhanui Regional Park, great beach and awesome trails with incredible bird life, a must do.

Planning a wedding from overseas is never simple, but with the help of the staff at Riverside Matakana, we pulled off a 4 day weekend retreat (with a wedding in the middle). We chose Riverside because of the beautiful surroundings as well as the friendly staff. There was plenty of accommodation for all our family and friends, and Riverside took... More

I have only praise. A relaxing stay in well-appointed accommodation on a well-kept estate. On arrival (and throughout my stay) Michael was friendly and helpful - as were the staff who serviced my rooms. The bach was spotless, with everything I needed and more in the way of furnishings and chattels. From a BBQ to cotton buds, from properly sharp... More

The property is serene and very peaceful. It has wonderful views of the river, the vineyards and the countryside views. It is located only few minutes away from the town.
