We stayed at Matahui Lodge for 2 nights on our travels around the North Island and it was one of the highlights of our trip. The lodge is in a lovely location with sweeping views across Tauranga Harbour. Trevor and Kay are excellent hosts and made us feel like old friends when we joined them for pre-dinner drinks and delicious dinners. The lodge is conveniently located for visiting Waihi (start point for cycling the Hauraki Rail Trail) to the north and Mount Maunganui to the south. The Hobbiton Movie Set at Matamata is also readily accessible and there is free wine tasting at Portfolio Wines (previously Morton Estate) on the main road near the turn-off for Matahui Lodge.

Our 3rd visit to this great venue and we took some friends along with us, who we had given a glowing rap about Matahui to. After 3 days stay they told us we had under-sold Matahui. Trevor and Kay excelled themselves with their hospitality and cooking, everything was top shelf.

Room Tip: One that overlooks the vines.

We visit Marahui Lodge each time we go to New Zealand. The minute you enter the main gates you are overwhelmed by the spectacular view and the vineyards fanning out across the land.

Trevor & Kay are the most wonderful hosts: nothing is too much for them and whatever your requests there are no extra charges. They're both excellent cooks; Trevor will supply wonderful wines and it is all done with such generosity.

Trevor and Kay are a lovely couple who invite you into their home and look after you superbly. They are friendly, helpful and at no time intrusive. The lodge is furnished nicely, with stunning views across the lovely garden and vines to the water. We were treated to wonderful meals and really good wine as well as great conversation. I would highly recommend this lodge.

Trevor and Kay host guests like royalty. They truly care for your interests and make the stay more than the ordinary good B&B. We elected to have dinner there with another couple joining us making it a party of six. Trevor grows his own grapes and he is proud of his viticulture skills as he should be. He heard we liked a certain style wine and went to a local wine store to purchase the special wine for before dinner drinks and appetizers. Can't get any better. My wife says this is the best B&B she has ever stayed and I agree.
