Hospitality is top drawer. Hosts bend over backwards to accommodate needs Comfortable and luxurious apartments with free wi-fi Beautiful views from apartment. Fully equipped kitchen to prepare meals if so wished Free laundry facilities Beach is walking distance away Russell town centre is walking distance away with restaurants, shops and pubs to choose from Best value for money.

Immaculately presented and beautifully appointed room with a fabulous view over Russell, perfectly situated so as to be within easy walking distance yet sufficiently removed so as to be able to appreciate the serenity of the lodge's surroundings. Superbly hosted by a couple with charm " in spades" who are passionate about providing more than just excellent accommodation. We cannot... More

Peter and Lorraine were the perfect hosts, they even have a drinks get together for the guests which was a wonderful evening with delicious nibbles. Breakfast is offered... More

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.

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
