Very good 8.0
Good location, good value
2 night stay. Good location, walking distance to waterfront. Roomy, clean, well appointed unit. Very friendly and helpful staff. Bed just a little too soft for our old backs, but otherwise a fine stay. Excellent value overall.

Good 6.0
Fantastic pool
Great location, easy walk to beach and shops. The bed was hard and sagged in the middle so we did not have a good sleep.

Second time we have stayed here. Clean, convenient, quiet, plus it has a nice swimming pool. Pity that there is no frame to dry the wet togs!. And no where to sit outside that wasn't part of a corridor to other units.

Great Holiday in Russell
Great room , near enough to the centre of town to walk . Lovely large bed . We had a great holiday in Russell . I would highly recommend the Motel Russell. A small improvement to our room would have been a small wardrobe . Once again thank you for being a part of a great holiday.
David, nz5 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Very small but okay stay
Good hot day, room was clean and basic amenities were there. Very small room with no air conditioning so it was very hot that we couldn’t sit inside and had to open the door right through. Being on main road there were quite a bit traffic noise too. Owner was happy and supportive. Nice town.

It is a shame that they seemed to want to fill up the part of the Motel closest to the road first which gave us a rather noisy stay.
