Our hosts were fabulous and made our stay very enjoyable. Location was on the water front and we could sit in our courtyard area and see the sea and activity in Russell. Sipping a glass of wine, watching the boats and soaking up the relaxed atmosphere. Heaven!! Rating 1-5 stars: 5 stars

We stayed at Hananui Lodge for three nights in late July in a beautiful apartment overlooking the water - the accommodation was excellent. I last visited Russell almost forty years ago on the end of a sailing voyage from England. The memory of this beautiful village endured. I will not wait forty years next time.Thank you Rongo and John. Rating 1-5 stars: 5 stars

How lucky we were to stay at Hananui Lodge! We booked their last double room and were so pleased with every aspect when we arrived. A warm, friendly greeting from Jo at reception, a lovely spacious well-equipped and immaculate room where we slept very well. We stayed a second night and would have stayed a third had they not been, unsurprisingly, fully-booked. A perfect place to stay in this pretty, interesting town. Rating 1-5 stars: 5 stars

A fantastic find! It started with a very friendly greeting from the owner even though we arrived earlier than we should have. The room was spotlessly clean and had a very nice feel to it. You could not fault the service we received. Rating 1-5 stars: 5 stars

On the waterfront, 1 minute from the wharf. Spotlessly clean, friendly staff and within walking distance of all cafes and restaurants in Russell. We didn't use the spa room so can't comment on that. I would definitely stay here again. Beautiful sunsets over the wharf. Rating 1-5 stars: 5 stars
