Your own home

The "cottages" are truly large, modern homes. They are perfect for a family, including a washer and dryer, and complete kitchen. There is a nice communal pool, and the center of town (and the waterfront) is just a couple of blocks away. This was the biggest pleasant surprise in our 3 week trip to New Zealand.

Very nice, homely stay in beautiful Russell

Posted Nov 9, 2014
Pros: Comfortable, clean, well-appointed
Cons: Wifi
Location: Dolphin watching; walking; nice restaurants ( we liked the Gables); little shops.
After a long journey (tip: put Pahia in your satnav and take the ferry. The route given by our satnav was a wonderful mountain road but it's a long and tiring way round), we arrived to a homely cottage with a coal-effect gas fire. Bed was huge. All the amenities you would need EXCEPT decent wifi.

Great location and excellent quality

Posted May 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Russell Cottages. The location of the cottages was perfect, the cottage finishings were great, and the facilities were excellent. The only issue we had was that the particular cottage we stayed in had a sloping floor (the construction was not level). This resulted in doors not shutting correctly and my sons toys all rolling to one point of the cottage.
