The Matakauri Lodge is magical. The comfort and quality of our stay was unprecedented. The staff's professionalism and service made us feel we were at our home away from home. I've spent approximately two decades in customer service. The quality and guest experience at Matakauri Lodge exceeded my highest expectations. If there were one place on Earth we'd return to it would be Matakauri Lodge. The property offers breathtaking views that cannot be appreciated through pictures. You must experience them with your own eyes. Even on a day when it rained, the serenity filled our hearts with happiness. I've never felt so relaxed in my lifetime.

From the moment you are met by the team as you drive up and take in the warmth and beautiful surroundings you know this is a very special place! Room was exceptionally furnished with clean, modern, warm tones. the view, second to none, the fireplace, patio, spa bathroom all wonderful. The front of the house and the restaurant teams are all exceptional friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. We looked forward to our interactions and the exceptional food! The food, freshness and presentations were world class! We will definitely include a stay here again when we return to NZ!

Lovely place outside of Queenstown. The staff is great, the food fantastic, the wine selection fabulous and then there is the view right onto the water. The rooms are beautiful, large, lovely. There are not enough superlatives!

My husband and I voted this location to have the "best staff" and the "most beautiful views" of our entire two-week trip to New Zealand. You won't be able to take your eyes off the views from your room or the lodge/patio. Beautifully decorated rooms and lodge, wonderful food, gorgeous pool (again, the views!). Friendly, approachable staff provide personalized, attentive service with good humor and charm. To help us celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, the staff (especially Greg) arranged to make our first night truly special with a private dining table and mini chocolate cake for dessert. The manager, Benedikt, is committed to seeing that every guest gets the same thoughtful service. Chris provided excellent guidance on local hikes and great conversation during pre-dinner drinks. Queenstown is just a few minutes' drive back toward the airport -- ride the gondola and then hike, or catch a ride to Moke Lake and hike down. We stayed 4 nights and would have been happy to move in and stay forever! We will be back!
