Beautiful Location & CottagesPosted May 15, 2017
Location: One of the highlights of my whole New Zealand experience was a 4 hour boat cruise called "Discover the Bay" through the Bay of Islands.
Russell Cottages are a short walk from the beach and Main Street of this quaint town. They are really small houses that are nicely decorated and furnished.The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The facility is kept in pristine condition as was the temperature of the pool and hot tub!
Peaceful and perfect cottagesPosted Apr 30, 2017 on Hotels
These cottages are simply amazing and very good value. It was as though we had our own holiday home with complete kitchen, ensuite bathroom, seperate laundry and plenty of space for our 2 children. The heated pool and spa were clean and well maintained. The cottage was serviced daily. Although not right on the waterfront it is only a few minutes walk away, but much more quiet than it would be overlooking the beach and a lot less expensive. I would highly recommend, and will most definitely be back.

Excellent LocationPosted Apr 2, 2017
Cons: The floor level of the unit we had definitely needs some attention. IN my opinion it should be rented out like that - especially at full cost.
Nice, clean hotel but the whole of our unit - number 14, was unlevel. The floor had a very noticeable slope on it and the water sat unevenly in the ensuite shower and the kitchen sink. It was very unnerving and was not explained to us before we rented the unit. Even upstairs it felt as if you were walking drunk. We thought we were going mental so we laid a bottle down on the floor by the couch and it rolled completely to the other wall - unaided. Not something that we would expect from a "luxury" accommodation. The downstairs toilet / laundry area door wouldn't close due to the un-levelness of the unit. But a great location, a great night was had and the people were very pleasant.

Beautiful cottages in RussellPosted Mar 17, 2017
Russell cottages is a 2 minute walk to the shops, the esplanade and wharf. Giving you easy access to Paihia, and pickup point for most tours. We really enjoyed our stay in Russell cottages it was lovely to have a homely feel away from home.

Great 3 bedroom cottage. Amazing stay.Posted Feb 23, 2017
We stayed in 5, a 3 bedroom cottage. Upstairs was a bathroom with bath, 3 good size room with one ensuite. Downstairs is huge open plan living with everything you expect. seperate toilet and laundry also. The pool is small but perfect adequate for a dip after exploring Russell and the bay. There's also a hot tub. Seperate inside seating area with dining table next to pool with BBQ you can book to use also. Was more expensive compared to other accommodation in area but the level of cleanliness, facilities and comfort make it worth it.
