Whenever my wife and I find the need to escape the pressures of life, we run to Queenstown. Within the context of our love for Queenstown, we discovered Matakauri. We spent 4 of our 6 Queenstown nights at the lodge. All the reviews we read were wrong. The place is beyond excellent. The first that hits you are the jaw-dropping... More

When we arrived we had someone greet us at the car and take our luggage and park the car for us. From there we checked in with impeccable service and information about all the facilities as we took a guided tour of the grounds/facilities and to our room. The view from the room is nothing less than impressive with expansive... More

Well there are so many great things to say about staying here. From the booking information to departure, sorry to leave this special place, all the staff went all out to look after you, and they went that extra mile to make my wife's birthday that extra special occasion. The decor from Virginia Fisher stands out all over the property.... More

My wife and I had a fantastic stay. The place was very quiet with only a few couples staying. Beautiful setting. Staff were exceptionally helpful. Rooms set out well. Wonderful dinner. We had the tasting menu. Very relaxing. Nice little gym and spa onsite.

Couldn't fault anything! The room was luxurious and well appointed, the food exceptional and a terrific wine list and choice of cocktails, the view is to die for, the staff friendlier and more helpful than anywhere I can think of and one of the best massages of all time. It doesn't get any better than this!

We had extensively researched our accomodation options for Queenstown. The promise of great service as evidenced by other TripAdvisor reviews and images on the website confirmed that Matakauri was our preferred option. Despite our high expectations Matakauri managed to surpass these, offering a number of "surprise and delight" moments, such as a room upgrade, a welcome drink in the beautiful... More

Now that we're living locally in the area we were able to go to Matakauri just for lunch. We arranged with another couple to have a Friday set menu lunch, and it did not disappoint. We arrived to be greeted at the door, coats taken and a glass of bubbly put in our hands. We sat in the beautiful lounge... More

Simply amazing, great staff that are happy to do anything for you. Queenstown is only a short drive away, they are happy to drive you into town any time. The restaurant and food is first class. Stunning and worth every cent! Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
