We have just finished a trip around Australia and NZ stopping in Hotels and Guest houses. This was one of the Highlights. The greeting you receive is First Class and Genuine, The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. Everything you need is provided and the views from the balcony is unforgettably. I just wish there had been a chain of... More

We were welcomed warmly here. Lorraine spared no effort in making our 5 days memorable. The room was so comfortable & the view was quite exceptional from both our bedroom & more so from the balcony. Afternoon drinks/nibblies were of the highest standard & we were fortunate in meeting very pleasant guests at these greeting occasions that Lorraine included. Because... More

We spent four wonderful nights at Bellrock. We originally planned to stay for three but inclement weather delayed our leaving and we were not at all disappointed. Pieter and Lorraine were very knowledgable about Russell activities and helped us book a day of fishing. They knowledgeably suggested sight seeing excursions. We were lucky to meet some of their local friends... More

We had booked two nights at the Bellrock Lodge in January, and after the first night changed our plans and stayed one more. Wonderful location up from the main activity areas. Extremely peaceful and relaxing. As noted in other reviews, the doors open up to the outdoors and a great view of Russell. Make sure to attend the hosts welcome... More

We spent 3 glorious nights at Bellrock - the view from our balcony was amazing and followed through into the large room which had floor to ceiling opening glass doors. The room was superbly decorated, equipped and furnished with full self catering facilities. Peter and Lorraine went the extra mile (km) as outstanding hosts organizing a nibbles and a mix... More

What an absolutely lovely time we had. Russel in it self is one of the most beautiful places in New Zealand and we were so stoked to find the most gorgeous accommodation there for our 3 day trip. All the rooms have a spectacular vie over the little town and the bay and across the water to Paihi. Our hosts,... More

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Bellrock Lodge where the luxurious rooms have full length glass doors which open onto your private patio; so you can luxuriate in the huge bed and drink in the view or sit on the patio gazing out over the bay whilst drinking some of the local wines. The rooms have every facility... More

We had a 3 night stay here with our friends David and Diane and it was fabulous. Our expectations were exceeded in every respect from the wonderful hospitality, generosity and first rate equipment. Peter and Lorraine were super hosts and the rooms were very roomy and immaculately kept with nothing lacking. All rooms gave a great view of Russell Bay... More

Bellrock exceeded our expectations in every respect - room, breakfast, view and the hospitality of the hosts Lorraine and Peter. Good access to the village and beaches yet back from the shore and high up so quiet and with a fabulous outlook from the rooms. Excellent parking
