We stayed here for 2 nights in January. Brad and David were very helpful, welcoming but unobtrusive. Our room was beautifully furnished with a large double bed and ensuite with Eco toiletries. We were apparently the only room without a sea view or terrace -...More
We stayed 3 nights at the beginning of New Zealand Odyssey and it could not have been a better place to stay. The place is a short walk into the village of Russell where there are good dining options.

While the setting in New Zealand's beautiful Northland was the initial attraction, I'm convinced we would have enjoyed our stay at Arcadia Lodge no matter where it was. David and Brad are excellent hosts and their lodge is immaculate. The delicious breakfasts were a great...More

Hi Lindley and Don, just spotted your booking for next summer - welcome back to Russell. Off the top of my head I know the time line back 3 owners ago which is only to the 80s but if you let me know your grandparents' name I can find out more. Going back from us the owners names were Carlsson, before them Heays & Bosanquet, before them Shatwell (his name but not sure if his wife had the same name) but they ran it as a very successful back packers. Lots of people in town would be able to give me the info if I can give the name. Otherwise I need to dig out the title deeds. Cheers, David
