Enjoyable stay

Posted Nov 12, 2017
Pros: Location was great. Hotel was clean and comfortable.
Cons: Spa pool needed water changed. It was smelly (not chemically, more stale body smell).
Location: Russell is an awesome little place to stay and I can't wait to go back again.
We found this accommodation and the staff very pleasing. The only thing that let it down was the spa pool. The water was smelly and definitely needed changing or treatment. Apart from this it was lovely and I would still recommend it to others.

Great location on the water front

Posted Oct 14, 2017
Pros: Location, staff, nice spa
Great location on Russell waterfront, close to restaurants and a few shops (small village). Good walking tracks and superb views from the top of the hill. Lovely beach, good restaurants. We had a great weekend and will return.

Peace and quiet in paradise

Posted Oct 8, 2017
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing
Location: History laid on - Museum, Pompallier, Church. Ferry rides. Cruise of Bay of Islands, Restaurants, cafes, bakery, pub, boats, everything close and easy
The lodge was spacious, bright, light, very well appointed, and spotlessly clean. The location was brilliant - close to everything but far enough away from pubs not to be disturbed by noise. The hosts rang each day to see what we needed - we have never experienced this level of service anywhere. The hosts are delightful and really keen to make the stay as comfortable as possible. It was a beautiful place to stay and we were very sad to leave.

close to everything

Posted Oct 2, 2017
Pros: It was very close to all amenities and had a sea view
Location: We were up for the BOI walking weekend so was very convenient for meet up points. Everything was close and handy.
We stayed here over the weekend were greeted and took to room very friendly and helpful, lots of information given. The room was immaculate the best we have stayed in. It was very close to everything so didnt use the car at all. It was also very quiet and had great views. would definetly go back another time.

Had a wonderful weekend away taking some time out from our busy lives. Hananui Apartments in Russell was the perfect destination. Great people. Beautiful, clean apartment (homely but with the touch of luxury you want when treating yourself to a weekend away). Will be back without a doubt!
