Spacious modern rooms, extremely helpful staff, especially when I left an expensive pair of binoculars there and they swiftly arranged for them to catch me up in Westport. wish I could have stayed longer.

A nice meal of chicken satay. A nice handle of speights to wash it down. 5 dollars for 10gb of data so good to do that. Very limited coverage in this small oasis. The wife had the whitebait fritters as a seafood junkie. never any complaints from her. We stayed in a holiday house but I think this place would... More

***Perfect venue for the perfect day***.. Our special day was complete with this amazing venue at The Last Resort. Ed and Tania (owners) were more than accommodating to my every need and offered help wherever possible. I would Highly recommend The Last Resort to anyone wanting a beautiful setting for any occasion.

A West Coast classic! The Last Resort is by far the best accommodation for miles around. The buildings are designed and constructed with a great deal of character and work really well. The accommodation facilities are excellent. The cafe restaurant and bar provide excellent food and drink options again at good prices. Ed and Tania and all staff were amazing... More

We were part of a group on a motoring tour of the West Coast staying one night. Our room was not what we had expected. A double and two single beds squeezed in, one usable occasional table and one chair, one bedside lamp out of reach and absent for another. The ceiling fan did not work and had not for... More

We stayed a couple of nights while checking out the lovely Karamea hinterlands. It's currently the only place with a restaurant in the area, so it makes sense to stay there if you aren't camping or caravanning. The studio units are pretty standard modern motel type rooms, tidy and clean, the restaurant is decent, and the bar is very warm... More

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
