"Very comfortable accommodation, slept well and meals were of a very high calibre. Well done. Would not hesitate to visit again. Staff were very friendly and helpful"

"forced to stay by landslip and found this beautiful gem. Amazing views to wake up to, cosy and warm. Clean, good food, what a way to spend a 29th anniversary!"

Arthur and Thelma from Australia

"We were travelling early evening and it was begining to darken and we saw your singnage. We had a lovely dinner in the cafe and the young man at the counter was very helpful and pleasant. Thank you and regards to all."

Bev Cameron Australia

"I found out about your resort through looking on the internet. You have provided a very comfortable stay here. Everything we needed was provided. Last night we had a delicious home-cooked Lamb casserole meal which really hit the spot. The outlook and scenery make the place very inviting and the service was terrific!"

Geoff Sutton from New Zealand

" We were forced to stay here due to a landslip and road closure, but what a pleasant place to be forced to stay! The staff were brilliant, just the two of them, but they managed to stay calm and pleasant under pressure What a great place, Well Done team!"

Gilles Cailette from France

"Thank you for the kind welcome. We found you in the lonely planet guide and were impressed. The units were well maintained, Thanks."

Dr Karen Barnett from Australia

" The resort has a lot to offer. We had an overnight stay only, but enjoyed the nature walk and the beauty of the natural surroundings. The chalet was very cosy and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. We would reccomend the resort to other travellers and holiday makers."

J Beck from Canada

"A very comfortable chalet and a lovely spot. We enjoyed great food in the restaurant and loved the beautiful native bush surroundings."

Graeme Dugdale from New Zealand

"I have been coming to Makarora most years with the Cessna 185 club. We look forward to our stay here every year. The accommodation and meals are good value with the price and quality of accommodation perfect with what we need to have a great stay. The Airstrip is a vital attraction to us coming here!"
