Hananui Lodge Motel
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Russell
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 May 2012

We had 3 nights in the one bedroom apartment, which is in a small block of apartments the street behind the 'lodge'. It was modern, well appointed and one of the cleanest places I've stayed in. Whilst we didn't have the view the lodge rooms have it was quite windy when we were there, and being back off the beach meant it was more sheltered and we were able to enjoy sitting out on our balcony. As everyone has mentioned, you could not find better hosts, John and Rongo were so friendly and informative. I organised a fishing charter with John for my husband at a very competitive rate, he had a great time. We will definitely return to Hananui.

I recently spent a month travelling in NZ and stayed at about a dozen great hotels (all in the same price ranges). This one was perfectly fine, just a it underwhelming and was rated lowest of all the places I stayed at. I just felt it was overpriced. My only real complaint was that the bed was very lumpy and hurt my back after 3 nights. For what they are charging I thing they need to get some new mattresses!! Also the decor is quite bland. The hosts, Rangor and John are terrific-a real asset to the property. The location is good and it was clean. Just a little overpriced, I think

We stayed in the one bedroom apartment for 4 nights. The apartment was very clean and serviced daily. The location is great - walking distance to shops, restaurants, the beach and the ferry to Pahia. The apartment has a well appointed kitchen so we were able to cook breakfast each morning. Having the ability to do laundry was a plus. The host was very accommodating by giving us restaurant suggestions as well as maps for touring the area. The bed was very comfortable. The only negative was the living room furniture - not so comfortable as it was rattan outdoor furniture rather than an upholstered couch and chairs

We stumbled upon this sweet little gem while looking to relocate from a disappointing stay at another location. The major selling point is the PERFECT location, hospitality, and cleanliness!! The furnishings are modest but hardly mattered as our room was generous in size with good lighting and attention to all the little details that matter! Our favorite place to stay while visiting New Zealand!
