When you stay at "Bellrock", you can expect a very warm welcome, comfortable rooms with superb views, along with exceptional service. We stayed at the lodge for 8 days so comfort and convenience was of the upmost importance to us. Our room was next to the laundry and washing line, very convenient. The room itself was very comfortable, with a... More

From the warm welcome on arrival, to entering your room with its quality amenities, to the stunning vista both from inside the room and on your private balcony, you know that your stay will be special. The care that Peter and Lorraine take is to be commended. They seem to delight in looking after their guests, taking great care including... More

We stayed, in Russell, at Bellrock Lodge for 2 nights, finishing a wonderful stay in NZ. A beautiful way to remember nice and some of the best memories of our trip. We enjoy fantastic views from our private balcony overlooking "sweetly Russell" and the waterfront, from sunrise through to sunset. We enjoy our lovely and peaceful room. But we have... More

This was a stunning lodge with four guest rooms whose patios overlooked the city and the Bay of Islands. Each room has a kitchenette which allows you to prepare meals and snacks. Our hosts, Peter and Lorraine, invited us on our second night to join them along with other guests for a welcome reception with wine, mussels, smoked salmon, meats,... More

Our stay at Bellrock Lodge was so much more than we'd envisaged. My husband and I were warmly welcomed, and we immediately felt at home in our beautifully appointed room. Our hosts, Peter and Lorraine, were gracious, helpful and knowledgeable with attention to detail their specialty. The daily sprucing of our room, along with invitations to partake of their evening...

Our stay at Bellrock Lodge was excellent. We could not have asked for a more welcoming and caring environment to spend some quiet time away from our busy lives in Australia. Peter and Lorraine were perfect hosts. Thank you both for a great week.

Bellrock Lodge is a wonderful place to stay in the Bay of Islands. Peter and Lorraine are warm, interesting and charming. I was traveling with my adult daughter and her partner and we all thought this was one of the best places we stayed during our 2 weeks of traveling together around the North and South Island. It has a... More

What a lovely place! The room was luxurious with fantastic views of the bay and sunsets with a private balcony to help you enjoy it. The very steep driveway was a little daunting at first but no trouble to drive up and it helped us to work off the 3 course meal we had at a lovely local restaurant recommended... More

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
