Everything is top quality at Matuka Lodge. The common lounge area has everything you could want. The food is delicious. Handing over our laundry as we arrived sealed the deal for me! Thanks for the indulgent stay.

Peaceful, stunning view, great location. I would definitely recommend staying here. Jo and Peter are fabulous hosts. I felt like family. Love your fruitcake,Jo, and thanks so much for the recipe. And your words of encouragement before my first glider ride at Omarama.

I wish I could have stayed longer in this tasteful, welcoming and beautiful Boutique B&B. The hosts are amazing and so authentic in having fun havin guests in their home. I travelled by my own and I felt more than welcome.
