Mataura Lodge has a unique history. Starting life in the King Edward Army Barracks, built circa 1939, the building served to accommodate soldiers during wartimes. It then moved on to become a temporary home for New Zealand immigrants seeking a new life in this beautiful country. Although the building has been completely renovated, many original features remain. The floor boards in the main living area have been lovingly restored so you will be walking on a small part of history.
The lodge is also perfectly situated providing easy access to the Around the Mountains Cycle Trail – one of the best cycling tracks in New Zealand – and are proud to be cycle-friendly for both riders and their bikes.
Bookings can be made for the entire lodge sleeping up to 8, or for separate rooms where you may share the lodge with other guests.
