Going back to Bellrock Lodge was like coming home. We loved staying with Peter and Lorraine again - and everything was to the same high standard we experienced on our first trip. It is always nice to be close to town and spoil ourselves with a beautifully decorated self-contained unit that has everything we needed and more. . . plus... More

From the warm greeting when we arrived, to the hugs and present when we left, this was a memorable experience. Hard to know what impressed the most - Peter and Lorraine's delightful company, the tastefully and comfortably presented room, or the charm of Russell and the Bay. This felt more like a holiday in a friend's house. We were delighted... More

Great location with sweeping uninterupted views across the bay from your private deck. Rooms were a great size, with every amenity you could need. Lorraine and Peter were both very welcoming and made our stay with them a real pleasure.

We had the most wonderful time at the Bellrock. The accommodation is first class, the location and the views from the apartment were unsurpassed but the most important thing was the hospitality of our hosts. Lorraine and Peter welcomed us like long lost family, shared a lavish guests entrée spread with us introducing us to the local oysters and smoked... More

Lorraine and Pete was the friendliest host you could ask for - the room was more than comfortable with an enormous bed. Heating is easy according to the weather with the heat pump/air-conditioner, electric blankets if needed. The welcome drinks and nibbles was delicious and the company outstanding - great time to share your life stories! all the rooms has... More

I can't add to the other reviews. They are all absolutely accurate in their praise. The sundowner that Peter and Lorraine turned on was the highlight of our one month stay in New Zealand. Just ask Peter where to eat. They only recommend the restaurants that they have sampled

All the glowing reviews of Bellrock Lodge are absolutely true. We stayed 6 nights in April and had a lovely time staying in Russell at Bellrock Lodge. Lorraine knows the best places to visit, sights to see and restaurants to eat at, and also can take care of any bookings or reservations needed, so there is no need to research... More
