What a wonderfull weekend. My brothers wedding was held at the Lodge and the guests all stayed the Friday and Saturday Nights. The setting is magnificent and particularly impressed the overseas guests. The service from Manager Stephen and his team was exceptional and they could not have done more for us. The food was also of a very high standard... More

We stayed here for four nights as part of our honeymoon. We received a warm welcome when we arrived, greeted with a glass of champagne and a tour of the property. We had been upgraded to a suite which was very much appreciated and we loved every minute of it. We were in number 9 – it was thoughtfully designed... More

This lodge was amazing and a wonderful beginning to our NZ holiday. I was a little concerned that we might be disappointed in our later accommodations after this fabulous start. It is a little bit outside of Queenstown. At first, my husband thought this might be a negative but he immediately changed that thought! The scenery and views are spectacular... More

Everything about Matakauri Lodge was superb. From a warm welcome, to our luxurious room to the delicious meals, everything was perfect. Our suite was spacious with every luxury including a spa bath with a magnificent view of the lake and mountains. A walk in storage area, a generous sitting room and the bed on an elevated platform with lake views... More

We had 4 nights at Matakauri. Its our second visit and it continues to be our favourite place to relax and be indulged. We especially like the excellent wines, service and friendliness. Matakauri is located in a beautiful setting amongst nature and the sublime mountains of Queenstown. What could be better.

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
