We stayed at Bellrock for 3 nights at the end of our holiday in New Zealand and it was a wonderful way to finish a fantastic holiday. It is in a lovely position overlooking Russell and the Bay of Islands over to Paihia. Peter and Lorraine are extremely helpful and very friendly hosts and will advise you on all the... More

There is not a lot more that can be said about Bellrock Lodge that hasn't already been said by others. It really is FIRST CLASS. My partner and I stayed for 3 nights to finish a hectic tour of New Zealand. From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, Peter and Lorraine were just fantastic. The accommodation is... More

Spacious rooms were clean and modern. Hosts Lorraine & Peter went above and beyond to give us a wonderful experience. Views over town were spectacular from private verandas and common lounge area. Happy hour was unbelievable with sunset, wines, and gourmet appetizers.

The Bellrock Lodge has superb accommodation and alone deserves five stars. However, the hospitality we received from the proprietors, Lorraine and Peter warrants a further star each, because that's what they are. On our first night we were invited to an informal get together. Lorraine and Peter proved wine and beer, along with oysters, smoked salmon and cheese. We sat... More

The Bellrock is lovely, charming and cousy! The room is spacious and has an incredible view of the Russell bay. It also has a built-in kitchen with a dish wash machine that helps a lot. The owners are very carring and friendly. We definitely recommend!

Stayed in Russell and at Bellrock Lodge in February. We truly enjoyed the experience, everything from the friendly conversation and comprehensive advice we got when we booked, to the amazing view from the balcony. Lorraine and Peter must be the best hosts you can wish for, and their place just above Russell is everything fellow reviewers say it is.

Bellrock Lodge is a wonderful place to stay in Russell which is a beautiful location in the Bay of Islands. Great room and facilities, fantastic view including lovely sunsets, and very kind and thoughtful hosts in Lorraine and Peter. As another reviewer noted, the attention to detail reflects a true understanding of hospitality.

The best B&B by a country mile!! The attention to detail reflects a true understanding of hospitality. Fab beds and fluffy towels you'd expect, but beach towels, a torch, drinks at sundown and friendship are included in the tariff too. The accommodation is spacious, tastefully decorated and well maintained. Each room has a sunny balcony, a water view of Russell... More

Excellent accommodation and hospitality from hosts Peter and Lorraine. Wonderful views of Russell and the bay. Great position back from the centre of Russell but within 5 minutes or so walk of the restaurants and wharf. Hosts thought of everything and more to make our stay so enjoyable.
