Certainly one of the most beautiful hotels we stayed in during our holiday in New Zealand. Arriving in Twizel you wonder where the directions are taking you. The middle of nowhere would be a good description I guess, but then you arrive at the Matuka Lodge. What a beautiful spot to relax and enjoy nature. The room is luxurious, clean and spacious. Free wifi available at a good speed. Hosts are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a treat! The view is very charming with the pond in front the room. Located near Mount Cook and the Tasman glacier it is the ideal location to stay. We didn't get to see Mount Cook, because it was covered in clouds both days we were there. The trip to the Tasman Glacier was worth it anyway. In my opinion the Matuka lodge is a far better place to stay than the hotels in the Mount Cook village. It's a bit of a drive from the lodge to the glacier but certainly worth it. I would definately stay here again!
