The Lodge has a wonderful setting looking over a magnificent lake and mountains - it is hard to believe it is only 7km from busy Queenstown as it is such an oasis. The rooms are beautiful (the Owners Cottage is sublime) and the food is really something. It's hard to do fine dining and not be fussy but this is easily achieved at Matakauri and no dietary requirement is too much trouble. The wine list too is extensive and includes not only wonderful NZ wines but excellent international options as well.
Words cannot fully convey the warm, friendly yet entirely professional attitude and customer focused service from the wonderful staff at Matakauri Lodge. Faultless attention to detail coupled with a real human touch, comes from a group of people who clearly love what they do and where they do it. Special mentions to General Manager Emanuel and Food & Beverage Manager Robin as well as Laurence.
You really won't be disappointed staying in this very special place in this very beautiful part of NZ. I can't wait to go back.More
