My wife and I chose Russell and the Bellrock as the first stop on our trip to New Zealand, figuring it would be a good place to relax and get over jet lag. Boy, did we get it right! Russell is totally charming, and a short walk up the hill is the fantastic Bellrock. Peter and Lorraine have created a... More

Thank you, Peter and Lorraine, for your hospitality. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bellrock Lodge, the spacious rooms, the views off our private balcony and the drinks & nibbles on Sunday evening.

Bellrock Lodge is a first rate place to stay in Russell or anywhere. It (and Peter and Lorraine) met or exceeded all our expectations. Peter and Lorraine combine the professionalism of a good hotel with the personality and local color of a B&B.

This hotel was by far the best hotel we stayed in during our travels through New Zealand. The owners are extremely friendly, almost predicting our every need. They tried (and succeeded) to make us feel the most welcome possible, providing us with weather information as well as activities to take part in while in Russell. The views from the Bellrock...

I (Lorraine) unfortunately did not have the opportunity to meet you, but from your review Peter looked after you very well and I take full credit for training him -:) Yes our guests have really not had it lucky with the weather so far and then you had even worse weather waiting for you when you got back to the...

Everything about Bellrock Lodge is perfect. The furniture and fittings in the bedroom were first class. Peter and Lorraine were wonderful hosts. They both are a lot of fun as well as being very efficient. The laundry facilities are a boon when you are on a long holiday too.

Bellrock Lodge was the perfect lace for us to end a 3 week trip to New Zealand. The Lodge was conveniently located in Russell, a non touristy small town. The hosts were great at communicating before and during our 2night stay.
