It was all so nice and easy to organise a 3 day conference for 20 odd people. Staff were very accommodating and also organised evening meals and transport to and from restaurants. Great location, great food and great service.

This was our second visit to Riverside Matakana, our previous stay being a year ago. The management team are incredibly welcoming and helpful, with no request being too much trouble. They clearly have a plan to continually improve the facilities and look of the property. Even in the space of a year since our last visit, the developments are evident....

What a gorgeous spot! Just a short drive from Auckland and you're in this beautiful rural coastal setting. We went as a family of 9 (parents, children and grandchildren) and rented 2 very comfortable baches for a long weekend. The bach was freshly decorated, well-appointed and attractive. Ours had a bedroom, another double bed in the living area and two...

This is a place where you can truly get away from it all. Views for miles are of rolling green hills and trees with nothing disturbing the sound of the wind in the trees. Our cabin (Bach) was well equipped - it was a little warm when we arrived and the fridge was turned off, but once the doors and...

The units are well designed with many amenities in them, including decent knives, washing machine, dryer, and barbecue. The outlook from the units is great, and each has an undercover area and a deck. The room is spacious, but not walls are flexible sliders, with gaps in them. Good for families. One thing not apparent from the photos is that...

What a lovely place to stay and escape to from all the hustle and bustle of the city. Each cabin was like a flash city hotel inside with modern clean facilities and upmarket décor. The full slider wall partitioning added flexibility to the room layout, allowing open and private space as/when needed. Cooking facilities were adequate for us to take...

What a lovely spot. The outlook from Bach 2 was lovely across the vines then the river to the other side of the valley. The unit was lovely with everything you need. The design of the units is also very clever with a nice deck and bbq. Definitely a come again place.

You know when you have arrived with at the Riverside Matakana as the staff know implicitly that you are there because you need to be. A getaway, a Sna-caction as we called it, simply 24 hours of bliss. A quick raid of Nosh in the Matakana Markets and a quick stop at the locally wineries to ensure we had ample...
