Exceptional 9.6 From 137 reviews

Good 6.0
Not for the light sleeper.
Russel was a lovely place to stay. Great places to eat and good walks. The hosts were lovely at the apartments but the apartment was a bit of a letdown for the amount it cost as the walls/ceiling ate very thin so we could hear people in above apartment moving around constantly. Apparently the room had a cheaper rate for this reason but this is not mentioned in advertising.

Lovely night away
Good stay, didn't realise it was the Bay Of Islands Jazz and Blues festival so was glad to have secured some accommodation. Unfortunately there were approx 11 Restaurants/cafes that had already closed for the season which made dining out a little tricky. Accommodation was older but comfortable and well presented. Had a lovely wee glimpse of the beach from our room. The only real issue was the size of the television, quite small by todays standards. Hosts were great.

Very well maintained in great location Only slight drawback no air-conditioning but two fans supplied in room.
Antony, nz2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Great location, but unit showing affects of age.
Great location right on the sea front, next to wharf, sightseeing, restaurants and cafes. The condition of the unit was disappointing, it is an older build where there has been some attempt to modernize with modern decor and fittings. However some structural feature such as doors looked rather tired and needed repair/replacement also bathroom lacked a heater, extractor fan, heated towel rail or shower cubicle (had shower curtain) all of which you expect for the tariff.

Amazing Waterfront Location
Booked a waterfront apartment which was very clean, well furnished, with everything we needed. Loved the outside furniture so we could sit out in the sun looking right at the water. Location was perfect just along from the ferry jetty and amongst restaurants and shops. Absolutely perfect. Managers were extremely helpful with lots of local knowledge. Free Wifi very good. Off street parking. Will be back.

Great stay. Convenient location.
Very happy that the staff was most responsive in answering my questions pre-trip. Richard was most helpful with the check in process. The place was spotlessly clean and conveniently located.

Quiet and tranquil little place, good restaurants, clean and well looked after amenities. Pictures do not lie, as they sometimes do. Chose to stay an additional night because we enjoyed it so much.
