“Amazing Stay”
Reviewed February 4, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Amazing house to stay in. I stayed here for a night only. Wish I could have stayed longer. Loved the outdoor spa pool. Great and friendly host. I will definitely stay here again if I end up going to Matamata again.

“Great place to stay near Hobbiton Movie Set.”
Reviewed January 30, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We stayed here for 1 night so that we could attend the evening dinner at nearby Hobbiton. We were greeted by Tineke and made to feel perfectly at home. The hot tub was great and the surroundings are gorgeous. Thoroughly recommend this stay to anyone who enjoys comfort and peaceful surroundings!

“Complete accomodation in excellent location”
Reviewed October 25, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Our overall experience was very pleasant! The accommodation itself was complete, with entertainment, privacy, a very relaxed environment, and delicious food provided. The owners are very lovely and make you feel right at home. The location is very handy and close to several major cities where a lot can be done. All these provided an amazing experience, thanks for the unforgettable holiday!

“Amazing B&B on a Working Orchard”
Reviewed October 29, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Located within 5 minutes drive to main core area of Matamata, this accommodation was stellar. From our first contact with Franz, upon our arrival, it was clear that this Dutch couple were totally on the ball. The sparkling clean and well appointed apartment is on ground level adjacent to the owners live in property but separated by a garage. The outdoor hot tub under the star lit southern sky was an absolute delight. In addition, the continental breakfast complete with homemade orange juice, mill, cereal, apples, bread, cheese and feIjoa jam was again a touch of class provided by the couple. If you find yourself in the Matamata or the Waikato region, plan to have a day or two at Southern Belle, so you can experience an upper end B&B.

“Lovely accommodation strongly recommend”
Reviewed June 6, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Tineke & Emily did a fantastic job of keeping in touch via email for our first trip to New Zealand. We arrived to be greated by Frans (sorry if i got the name wrong) who was extremely informative & helpful. The breakfast was wonderful, the spa was truly enjoyable, the jam given to us was delicious, the beds comfortable the shower perfect, everything was great in fact we decided it was the best accom we stayed in out of 8 whilst in NZ for 2 weeks, due to the fact it had everything in it. The only thing i would suggest and did miss was not having a view of the orchard due to the trees outside the back door being high (i guess for privacy), I'd definately recommend this accom and definitely stay there again.
