My husband and I have just spent a night in the Tower Room and only wish it had been longer! The room was beautifully prepared for our arrival with fresh flowers, complimentary chocolates and biscuits, was absolutely immaculate and had the most stunning views over the hills down to the sea. Our plan had been to explore the surrounding area, but the sun loungers on our own private roof terrace prooved too tempting.... Natalie prepared a lovely cheeseboard with wine at 5pm served in the stylish lounge with a roaring fire adding to the welcoming atmosphere. The lounge is shared between the three guest rooms but as the only guests there, we sat reading magazines a listening to music, all provided for the guests enjoyment.
Breakfast the next morning was truly delicious - freshly prepared fruit, cereals, juices, tea or coffee and the most amazing French Toast with homemade blueberry preserve. We didn't eat again until dinner!!
Natalie and John were fabulous hosts, and had thought of everything we'd hoped for for our little getaway. All the little touches made us feel very spoilt and we had such a wonderfully relaxing time - it's hard not to when the surroundings are so peaceful.
For a romantic getaway or with friends, Matakana Castle is a real gem and we would wholeheartedly recommend it.
