Review of Sugarloaf Lodge
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Feb 2018
You won't be disappointed staying in this wonderful house with Robin and Dianne as your hosts. From arrival to drinks and canapés being presented on your balcony at your chosen time , and a wonderful choice at breakfast . The stunning views from your bedroom across to Omaha beach and the surrounding countryside is beautiful . Robin and Dianne are wonderful hosts and made wonderful recommendations for dinner and where to go and see . Enjoy.

          We only stopped for one night and wished we had been staying longer. A lovely, comfortable and beautifully furnished room with fantastic views to the coast over open countryside. Sitting drinking pre supper rosé looking at the view was stunning. Robin and Dianne are charming, warm and friendly hosts and made us feel extremely welcome with lots of advice on where to go and where to eat. A delightful stay.

          A gorgeous view to sit and watch the sun set or rise. Very peaceful with a lovely view. Very modern room and bathroom separate to the main house where a basic continental breakfast was served. The owners are very friendly and eager to suggest places to visit in the area. We only stayed one night but I suggest two so you can get down to Omaha beach and the lovely walks you can do.
          To eat out you have to get in your car as the lodge is a way out of town but there are plenty of options as Matakana is the trendiest part of NZ we have visited in our first week, albeit still quiet.

          Thank you so much for feedback Julie. With fresh OJ, homemade muesli, choice of yogurts, fresh fruit salad of seasonal fruits, selection of breads, selection of teas or fresh coffee, homemade marmalade, jams and local honey from Mt;Tamahunga, plus hot-baked pastries, we try and make the Continental breakfast as substantial as possible, but would really appreciate it if you could send us an email, outlining how we can best improve it to make it less "basic" ? Our aim is always to surpass all our visitors expectations, so your suggestions would be very genuinely appreciated.
          Yes, it is a shame you need to hop in the car for the restaurants/eateries, but, as you say at least there are plenty of options .... 8 within 3kms. Look forward to hearing from you. Robin

          Lovely clean and spacious room. Greeted warmly and asked if we would like some wine and nibbles before dinner (we did!). Extensive advice on things to do locally and very kindly dropped us off for dinner at the local micro brewery. Outstanding views from the room, on the terrace and from the breakfast room. Highly recommended.

          We had a great couple of days at this lovely property. It started with a warm welcome from Robin who was outside to greet us when we arrived. The room was excellent and included all we might have needed for our stay. Breakfast was great with superb views over the surrounding countryside to Omaha Beach and beyond. Robin and Dianne were very helpful in suggesting places to go and where to eat. Tawharanui Regional Park is definitely recommended - great walks, wonderful scenery. The early evening wine and nibbles were a bonus. Would have loved to stay longer to enjoy the hospitality and see more of the area.

          The facility is a great place to spend a few days when you first come to NZ. It is only an hour from Auckland. We had heavy rain for 2 of the three days we were there and had a great time seeing the sites and conversing with Diane and Robin. The wine and hor d'ouerves every night (at 5 o'clock- Just like the Alan Jackson song!) are a great way to wind up a day outdoors. It is a great place to see the sites like Goat Island

          Room tip: There are only 3 rooms so not a big deal!
