De Preaux is in a fantastic location, Jan, Ian & Office Manager Valmae are the friendliest people around. De Preaux Lodge is a short 15 minute drive to Hobbiton, 5-7 minutes to Matamata shops, great owners, very accommodating with your wishes and it feels like it's your home while you stay with them, you even have your bedroom, your own toilet & shower facilities and small fridge too yourself. Would stay here everytime I visit Hobbiton. ;)

Friendly warm hosts welcomed us into a very tastefully decorated lodge in a peaceful country setting that finished off a great day at Hobbiton. Thoroughly recommend a stay here, close to Matamata (under 10 mins) and Hobbiton yet far enough out to feel a million miles away from town. Great Kiwi hospitality at its best. The room was immaculate and had a nice view over the farm and a deck right outside was a great spot to watch the sunset and the moon and stars rise.

At the time of booking, De Preaux lodge average user reviews was a stellar 5 out of 5. On other websites, this would be suspicious, but knowing that all Expedia reviews are from verified travelers we decided to give it a try. And the 5 rating became clear. The property sits in beautiful landscapes, the garden is beautiful, the property well maintained, extremely clean and decorated with taste. To make the stay even better, the hosts are amazing and contribute a lot to the experience. We wished we had stayed longer, and heartedly recommend the place.
