  • This is a nice and clean room on a lovely property near Blue Pools. A convenient place to spend the night on the way north out of Queenstown between Qieenstown and Franz Josef Glacier. Very good value. Nothing fancy but clean and comfy, inexpensive too. The sheep in the meadow were a bonus! 5

  • We stayed in one room in the big house. No one else was there. Bed was comfortable, place was clean, kitchen and common spaces really big and kitchen has everything you need. Can imagine big groups staying in this house very comfortably and being able to make fun,big dinners. It was a cold, rainy night, and the managers had started the fire for us. There are very few choices in Makarora because it's so tiny, but this is a great option. 4
