Great views over the harbour from all rooms Spacious , comfortable rooms with very good cooking facilities Each room has a balcony where you can sit, eat, drink and watch the sun go down Short walk into the centre of Russell Very welcoming hosts who know the area very well and can help with recommendations. Real quality. 房间宽敞兼有海景,布置舒适,厨具齐全。所有房间都带有露台-适合休闲发呆,或者用餐品酒,还可以从露台观看日落十分写意。从酒店步行去小镇中心很方便。酒店主人非常友善,对当地十分了解,并乐意推荐适合游玩的地方。

Lorraine and Peter were great hosts and the rooms were very well appointed with everything you might need. The location was excellent being only a couple of minutes walk into town, as are the sea views from the room.

Peter is the ultimate host, ably assisted by Shaka, and we were extremely well looked after in every regard. The unit was beautifully prepared, and returned to pristine condition every day, and the view is outstanding.

Lorraine and Peter are wonderful hosts! The lodge is beautiful and the views are magnificent. The before dinner drinks with Lorraine and Peter were very fun with lively conversation. The bed in our room was quite firm, so if you are used to a softer bed, you might be surprised. I slept well though.

Leah, sorry I have taken so long to respond. The firmness of a mattress and/or pillows are such personal tastes, we have extra pillows for our guests to try, but I am pleased that you slept well. Thank you so very much for posting the review, it is much appreciated.

The room had a lovely view and was very clean and comfortable and serviced daily. The location was fantastic up the hill to give you the view. The walk to the property is a bit steep up the driveway but not very long. We had no trouble with this and enjoyed being a little bit away from the main street....

Peter and Lorraine were most gracious in receiving us. Their happy hour with other guests was wonderful, allowing us to meet other travelers as well as hear of Peter and Lorraine's journey from South Africa to New Zealand.
