the Bellrock Lodge in Russell, New Zealand is a superb place to stay. The location is gloriously stunning but not nearly as stunning as the Lorraine and Peter who own the Lodge. They provide warm and fantasttic service with outstanding breakfasts and help with arrangements. The rooms are well-appointed with fabulous views. Russell is a lovely destination made all the...

My wife and I stayed at the Bellrock for 5 nights during a 3 week trip around New Zealand. The unit was outstanding - very clean, with all amenities plus excellent views. Peter and Lorraine we extremely helpful offering excellent recommendations for day trips during our stay. We are already planning out next trip to the Bellrock. Paul and Christina

You will not regret booking at Bellrock Lodge -We had such a lovely experience - endless kindness and everything was there when needed. This is more a b and b than a hotel so there isn't a bar etc - but a wonderful welcome with drinks and local fare - it is very near all the bars and local restaurants... More

Bellrock is a beautiful property in a beautiful location! Everything in the room was a beautiful quality. We could not have asked for more accommodating hosts! Peter and Lorraine ensured our every need was attended to. Nothing about this lodge disappoints.

We arrived without having booked and were lucky to get a beautiful room at this wonderful place! The room has a worldclass view onto the bay and overlooking Russell. And what makes it even better and more special is the private deck from where you can eat your breakfast whilst enjoying the view. The large bedroom has an excellent and... More

We spent 2 nights here and couldn't fault it, Peter & Lorraine are excellent hosts, the boutique property is immaculate, with stunning views overlooking Russell, it may be on a rather steep hill but that is no problem as Peter is a willing chauffeur .

Lorraine and Peter were incredibly welcoming hosts,the house was immaculate and our rooms were stunning. The upstairs lounge and decking areas were perfect for our family and we prepared most of our evening meals on the... More

A fantastic two night stay over the new year period Russell never disappoints and neither did Bellrock lodge. A beautiful room, magnificent hosts with thoughtful inclusions right down to the plunger coffee. Views for days of Gods country and only a short walk to the township to enjoy more local hospitality. Hope to see you again soon an often.
