We needed to get out of the city and smell the roses and Sugarloaf Lodge provided exactly what we were after. Peace, rural and panoramic beauty...........and quiet. Our hosts respected every aspect of our stay and the accommodation was 5 Star. Wonderfully comfortable beds, beautiful ensuite and subtle furnishings. And thank you Allan for the wine & nibbles on arrival...

We stayed for an evening to attend a wedding in Matakana. The lodge is in a very peaceful location with wonderful views and welcoming hosts who provide a tasty breakfast. Very quiet at night so you get an excellent sleep! Centrally located with easy access to Matakana and all it's delights.

I'm very sorry to say this was not value for money at $300 per night and it wasn’t even clean. There were runs down the outside of the toilet and the inside of the lid. The shower screen was not clean and the throw on the bed needed washing too. We had taken some fruit and wanted to cut a...

We can only apologise for the cleanliness - we are generally most particular, but we have had the busiest summer in our existence although this should not be used as an excuse. The room has been completely stripped and cleaned again this morning. With regard to the lack of utensils, crockery and sharp knives in the room – we are...

This B&B is set high up on rolling hills that facilitate excellent views over the eastern coastline. From start of finish the accommodation was home-like and provided large rooms that had been thoroughly cleaned. The breakfast consisted of a limited but very good selection of home-made breakfast dishes.

The only negative thing I can say about the Sugarloaf Lodge is that we only stayed one night. I would recommend two nights so that you can truly relax on the property. The two rooms are separate from the main residence and have their own entrance and parking area. The bed faces the view and the deck with tables and...
