We spend a gloriuos 2 days in Matuka Lodge. Room was modern bright with a spectacular view, tastefully decorated. The hosts Jo and Pete could not have been more helpful, they are a credit to you.
Property is ideally located, just 5 minutes driving to the restaurants.
Communal areas are spacious and cosy.
Manuka Lodge offer everything you need for your stay, really good breakfast and afternoon they offer homemade cookies and cake, coffe, tea, etc.In general you filing like home.
Could definitely recommended this!
My husband and I love this place

Room Tip: Best view!

We decided to break up our trip from Christchurch to Queenstown by staying 2 nights in Twizel and were thrilled to see how beautiful this place was. Our hosts Peter and Jo did everything possible to make us feel welcome in their Lodge, which had amazing views over the Mount Cook mountain range. Jo provided a great breakfast and booked dinner reservations in good restaurants for us on the 2 nights we stayed (Poppies was our favourite ) We would definitely recommend a stay at Matuka Lodge which is only a short drive from Mount Cook , Lake Tepako and other great scenic spots

I don't write many reviews but this place should be mentioned. Spectacular place. Very nice and clean rooms. Not even spots on the carpet or any unpleasant smell. In this case, 'luxury' means luxury and that deserves recognition. And it's also the little things like free treats in the tea room, a complimentary soft drink/beer and a collection of liquor you could enjoy at the fire place in the common room after a day of exploring the nearby lakes. Have a look at the rooms with bath tab. Nice breakfast in the morning and two very nice restaurants in Twizel just 5 minutes away. Usually, I don't like B&Bs because I prefer a more private setting... but in this case, you get both. Very nice hosts and at the same time very private rooms as well if you just want peace and quiet after a long day. Just sit in your chair and stare at the pond and the snow covered mountains in the background in your warm room... oh yes... did I mention the underfloor heating in the bathroom...? :)

Wow !! What a hidden gem, not only the location but the property and the hosts Joe & Pete. This lodge is better value than other Lodges I have stayed in in New Zealand at over $1,200.00 per night, the décor, the breakfast the surrounding the view over the mountains to much to review in a limited space We will definitely be back. Also no kids under 18 !!

Room Tip: Room 2 is one of 2 premier rooms but either of the other 2 rooms are nearly as spacious everything that you may require is there from great Wi-Fi to great bed
