We stayed for two nights in a studio unit with ensuite and kitchenette. Very comfortable room with parking right in front. The walls are a little thin so you could hear the people next door but it wasn't a big issue. Good internet. Food and service in the restaurant was excellent. Tania is a gracious and friendly hostess and provided... More

We spent two nights here at the Last Resort. Our Studio Unit was very clean and comfortable with a large bathroom. We ate all our meals in the restaurant and the food was excellent. I had whitebait fritters and they would be the best I have ever bought. The coffee was good and service carried out with a smile. I... More

Spent a weekend at The Last Resort. Clean, warm and comfortable accommodation. Bathroom was huge and included a bath, nice for a soak in after tramping the Heaphy. Kitchen was small but well equipped. Excellent food at the restaurant, good size portions and good value. Coffee was good, but very slow to be served. Loads of car parking. Very friendly... More

We arrived at the Last Resort For an overnight stay. Our first impression was that is was a little run down, our room was quite dark and not as comfortable as we had envisaged, from their website. However the hosts were friendly and the main dining room and bar was a nice space. In a compendium in our room it... More

Staying at the Last Resort was a dream for about 5 years since it had been promoted in the AA Magazine. We liked the play on words and also wanted to see where the Heaphy Track started from the West Coast end. Health problems postponed getting there but eventually got there in June this year. Being winter there was maintenance... More

We had planned to stay in Westport and travel into Karamea for the day and are so pleased we made the choice to stay at The Last Resort. Very warm comfortable ensuite studio room. The owners were extremely hospitable and the service was exceptional. We really enjoyed an evening drinking by the fire and the dining experience was awesome. Wholesome... More
