We had a delightful visit to Matakohe House for a single night. We were greeted warmly showed to our room and invited to arrange dinner in the restaurant if we wished. The room was very comfortable and we found the shower as mentioned by Faypeke to be easy to use and much safer than some we had had to step into.
The shared verandah was a great spot to have our picnic lunch that we had brought with us and Alex who was in the restaurant made sure we had plates, cutlery and condiments. We looked at the menu for the evening, selected our meal and decided upon a time we would dine. There was no waiting for the food and the price of our bottle of wine was reduced because we did not get the 'free glass of wine' offered on our arrival.
There was a small flagon of port and two glasses in the room which provided a great finish to the meal we had had. The room was quiet and we arose to enjoy a fine breakfast and, when we mentioned that we were meeting friends at the Kauri Museum in an hour or so, were given a discount ticket to reduce our entry fee. The discount ticket also covered our friends' admissions as well which saved us over $20.
It was very pleasant to receive a prompt phone call to our hotel in the Bay of Islands confirming our emailed request for accommodation. I did feel we were in good hands and we both felt welcome and valued. They do it all very well.
