A lovely and serene place to spend a weekend away. Just 5 minutes from Matakana Village, it is the perfect getaway location. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and will do their best to make you feel comfortable during your stay.
Riverside Matakana exceeded our expectations! The room was perfect for two couples, with everything we needed. The bed was particularly comfortable! Parking was not an issue. The tennis court and swimming pool are excellent additions- the owner even went out of his way to buy us some tennis balls when we said we would like to play! We would love to come and stay here again.
I loved the whole experience. Accommodation was perfect for us. Very comfortable and clean. We regularly enjoyed the pool and loungers. The host was super friendly and made us feel like we could ask for anything and it wouldn't be a problem. We will be back for sure!
Everything was brilliant. from the easy access to the pools, with the lovely AC pumping in the hot summer days. Rooms were perfectly separated so you could have your own time. Free private BBQ was amazing to have every night under the sunsets each afternoon. The free use of the tennis courts was good to warm up on before jumping in the pool.
We absolutely loved the place the rooms were really well appointed and very comfortable everything was organised and the management took time to ensure we knew everything about the accomodation and the surrounding area. On top of that the views from the deck were absolutely fantastic. Could not fault it in any way.
Incredible property and scenery. A peaceful escape and beautiful, comfortable, modern accommodation. Very friendly staff. Comfy beds, nice showers, great amenities.
"The team had the most incredible experience; all of them were blown away at how great the food and accommodation was. The team came back feeling very grateful to have been able to experience the workshop in such a beautiful location. Once again, thank you so much for being so great to work with, and helping make our Leadership camp such a great experience for our new Managers."
"We stayed at Riverside for our Trustee Workshop, and enjoyed it immensely. Cosy, quiet and inviting, yet modern, the staff were friendly and accommodating, the food was divine and technology was up to date and easy to use. Both our staff and Trustees gave great feedback about the service, location and the food. We will definitely come here again in the future, and recommend to anyone for an overnight stay, workshop or conference."
I have recently returned from a highly successful overnight conference held at Riverside Matakana. The conference room opens out onto a nice deck with outdoor furniture, great for the break times. The accommodation was very clean and spacious with all the amenities you would need. The two bedroom units had a large lounge, kitchen and dining area and both bedrooms had private separate en-suites. The food provided was a good variety and very tasty. Riverside arranged for a bus to transfer us all to our Dinner venue, so we enjoyed a pre-dinner drinks and nibbles on the deck looking out over the vineyard and property. I highly recommend this venue for a conference, weekend getaway for couples and families. Michael, Suzie and their team were incredible and very accommodating to work with.
It really is the staff that make a retreat the best experience - Special thanks to Mike, Tralese, Lorna and Suzie. The attention to detail was so amazing, I really didn't have to think of anything. Every time I had a question or request it was answered quickly and with a no hassle attitude. Obviously the venue itself is stunning and I can't wait to come back. If you are a small business owner, this place is the venue for you!
Wonderfully peaceful location and perfect for our business workshop. The chalets are cleverly designed, providing privacy with bedrooms at either end and a central communal living area which was ideal for our purpose. Michael was full of useful knowledge and a genuine and natural host. This will definitely be our regular retreat of a choice.
Amazing views, rooms, staff and property. I have no complaints whatsoever!!! Will be back.
I loved everything, I just wanted to stay longer! Everything was fantastic, from the phone call when it looked like I might miss the check in time, to the very friendly staff who couldn't have been more helpful and pointed out some great dinner options, to the warm and comfortable bach with its gas fire and gorgeous view over the vineyard and valley. Location was perfect, and it was a quick drive to Matakana village or wherever we needed to go.
Amazing place! We spent the weekend here with three other families booking out one group of Baches. Beds, bathrooms, kichens, BBQ's were all excellent, clean, and worked well. Great location close to Matakana and other local attractions.
Love this place! Perfect for our family weekend getaway. Very clean and generous with their furnishings/supplies, well heated, nice gas fire place n their Weber BBQ was so handy for our impromptu BBQ. Friendly/polite receptionists! Will definitely return.
Everyone was incredibly gracious. I was traveling with my children - ages 8 and 10. Michael, the owner, gave us recommendations for dining and activities. The accommodations were wonderful - we created a home away from home. The property itself is stunning. This was one of the best parts of our trip!
