We stayed at the Bellrock Lodge for five nights as part of a month-long trip around New Zealand and it was one of the highlights of the vacation. The rooms are bright and sunny, well appointed and in good condition with a balcony offering a panoramic view over Russell and the Bay of Islands. We had been doing a lot... More

We decided on a quick getaway to NZ to visit friends and then to spend a few days in the Bay of Islands. How lucky were we to find Belrock Lodge! It is the most beautiful B&B (although we had breakfast in town, there was such a choice and not enought time to try them all!) in a fantastic location... More

People always say it is difficult to make friends as you get older. Being in the B & B business now for almost 5 years, we realise that that is not true, as you say our guests arrive as strangers and many leave as friends. We are blessed as we seem to get all the "nice " tourists, thank you... More

This review is way over due. We arrived in Russell in March in the midst of a storm. We had flown 10 hours to Auckland then drove to Russell to find this gem of a B&B! Peter and Lorraine were so helpful with suggestion for places to eat and what to do. The first night was a storming night, but... More

We had a fantastic get away weekend at the Bellrock Lodge in Russell. We booked three rooms so that our daughters and partners could come along too. Lorraine and Peter looked after us extremely well from making the booking until our departure. The rooms are spacious, well decorated and all have great views. It is a short walk down to... More

6 of us ended up staying two nights here. Great set up. A great vista from each room. The kitchen setup is perfect everything you need and more. Right down to good coffee. Essential in the morning. Hosts invited us up for a drink when we arrived. Very very friendly spot.

The view is fantastic, the facilities are great and our hosts, Peter and Lorraine, were really friendly and knowledgable. This would be the best B and B I have stayed in! The welcoming pre dinner drinks and eats, sage advice and friendly approach of the hosts is really endearing and demonstrates their commitment to a high class facility. We stayed... More

We were very happy indeed with our stay at Bellrock Lodge, which exceeded our expectations in every way. We are fairly demanding travellers when it comes to hotels etc., but we really couldn't fault this place even if we tried. The isn't really a traditional B&B. The 4 self-contained suites are all very spacious, modern, and well equipped, and all... More

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.

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.
