Karamea is such a wonderful place, and its little wonder when you have the likes of Ed and Tania running the show along with their brilliant staff, they do everything with seemingly effortless ease, nothing is a problem. The Last Resort is one of the best establishments l have had the pleasure of staying in, full stop.
The conviviality starts at Ed's Bar and spreads its way right throughout the kitchen and into the dining room. The Karameans are some of the friendliest folk l've had the pleasure to meet, they stop to take the time to exchange stories, and they smile with a genuine warmth and sparkle. We ate dinner there twice and the cuisine and service were first rate, these guys really care about presentation without being over the top. The double room we stayed in was excellent value, and reflected well the obvious desire to build something a little special without being grandiose. Thanks again to all the staff and the friendly folk of Karamea for helping make our stay a memorable one, we hope to visit again some day soon.
