Spent last night here at Villa Walton. If you're ever in the area you must book in with Glenn and Mark. Luxury, Superb, immaculate, you cannot fault it in anyway, and the hospitality is awesome. Thanks Glenn for sharing your beautiful slice of kiwi heaven with us. I would love to come back. I will come back!

A lovely old villa beautifully restored. Glenn is a very welcoming host indeed. We stayed in a very nice room with lovely decor. Wonderful breakfast and coffee with homemade jams and biscuits too. Just wish we had time to stay longer, but we will be back. Very highly recommended.

We were a family group of 6 adults staying in 3 bedrooms at the villa. Mark and Glenn were exceptional hosts, friendly and very generous. The house is furnished to a very high standard and could not be faulted. We spent the late afternoon relaxing at the property and wandering the garden. Everything about the 3 course dinner was generous and delicious. We really enjoyed the home made pickles and jams with the antipasto plates. Breakfast was awesome and the cooked options whatever we wanted. We have already decided to return in the future. Many thanks Mark and Glenn from Erica, Rob and family

A stunning villa with every detail taken over. Glen and Mark have thought about everything and go any extra mile required. If you’re riding you can go a few extra km to reach them or shuttle from Matamata.....so worth it

What a wonderful find. The physical structure is beautifully restored with modern amenities. Proprietor Glen is the perfect combination of friendly, casual hospitality and scrupulous attention to detail that renders the stay perfect. Breakfast is terrific. But wait, Glen also serves dinner made to order. We got back after a day of touring and didn’t feel like going back out. Instead, we sat in the beautifully appointed living room with a glass of wine while Glen prepared a tasty dinner of locally sourced ingredients. Don’t pass this gem by!
