Fabulous location, service & it's spotless! The location is fabulous - right on the beachfront and minutes to all restaurants, wharf/boat excursions and walks in Russell. The rooms are modern, spotlessly clean, well equipped kitchen and lovely views from the balcony. We loved the huge, comfortable king size bed. We booked in for an extra night & stayed in an apartment as we loved everything so much. Rating 1-5 stars: 4 stars

Always Excellent! We have stayed at both the Lodge and the Apartments at least 6 times over the last decade. Rooms are always clean and tidy and John and Rongo go out of their way to ensure a pleasant stay. Couldn't ask for a better location. Will def be back. Rating 1-5 stars: 5 stars

Great place. From the moment we arrived my husband and I both loved this place. We arrived early and our room was ready so we were able to check in early and the owner gave us some very good info about Russell. Very informative and extremely friendly! The room was fantastic. We had our own balcony over looking the park and water. Room was very clean and I have no complaints! Rating 1-5 stars: 5 stars

I arrived here bright and early after staying in Paihia the night before. The owners are very friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the area having lived there all their lives. I was in a sea view suite, which was so worth spending a bit extra to get the beautiful views from the balcony. The apartment was large and spotlessly clean. Rating 1-5 stars: 5 stars
