I stayed here with a friend and what a wonderful place to relax. After our low budget travelling this was such a luxury. A lovely fireplace, really comfortable beds, great views, clean batches and the staff is so helpful. Close to Matakana and to the most beautiful beaches! Highly recommend this place for a stay with friends or family. I... More

Warmly greeted by Michael on arrival and shown to the conference room. Our group of 10 was easily accommodated as the room was large but still had a homely feel to it. Great food at all our break and lunch sessions. Only suggestion to make would be if the work session is going to be all day, the hard wooden... More

Very clean, very private. A comfortable Queen bed. Love having the gas fire.Riverside is close to Matakana (driving) & close to surrounding vineyard restaurants. A very relaxing stay. The only thing I needed that wasn't there was a drying frame for my washing.

Great accommodation. Quality chattels and lovely surrounds. Looks like 17 bachs or units but still able to maintain privacy. Nice and warm. Sleeps 6 with two queen size beds and two singles in another wing that would be a garage. Second bed is actually in the main room but can be divided off. Property also has tennis court and swimming... More

Finished my trip to New Zealand here, best decision I made for that trip. Our trip was so fast-paced that it was nice to slow it down a bit and come here and relax do a little kayaking and just sit back on the deck with a glass of wine while watching the sun set. The rooms were fantastic, clean... More

My brother and his wife (from the Netherlands) were touring the North Island and we joined their 2 nights at Riverside, Matakana with excellent, roomy accommodation in a very nice environment. Spotless place, nice staff. Thank you.

Attended a day and a half work conference at Riverside. Just over an hours drive from central Auckland, yet really gave the sense of being away from it all. The venue is surrounded by rolling green hills, a river and some grape vines. The room set up for the conference was more than big enough for a group of 12... More

We decided to take our teen and her friend away for the last 5 days of the school holidays. This was the prefect place to do it. Riverside really is a bach, not a hotel situation.

We stayed for 3 nights with our son, daughter-in-law and 6 and 4 year old Grandsons, whilst visiting from the UK. We all had a wonderful time and the little boys keep asking if we can return.
