    Great birthday night at the Duke with my husband - weather was dodgy but the room was great, good comfortable bed and our meal was awesome. Been a few times to the Duke and its looking much better than it has in the past. Good work to the owners / managers.

    We had stayed here before many years ago but this time was better - a five star experience. Our room was immaculate and comfortable with all mod.cons including wi-fi, the food was restaurant standard and the staff were, without exception, pleasant, heplfull, friendly and efficient. The hotel itself was high standard - warm, comfortable and smart. Frankly I couldn't wish... More

    This was a birthday celebration weekend stay with a delightful (and warm) comfortable bedroom suite with beautiful large window views over the bay straight in front of the hotel and comfortable chairs and sofa for lounging in and reading. The weather was pretty rough so having somewhere bigger and more comfortable than a mere hotel room was perfect to venture... More

    What an experience! Brilliant service, so respectful, helpful and always avaliable. The rooms were clean tidy (and warm with it's own heatpump) and super comfy bed - lush linen and great shower pressure. The food was to die for, the location is fantastic and we would definitely recommend.

    We had an overnight stay at the Duke as part of a package. It is a heritage hotel with a lot of character on the waterfront. Restaurant/bar has great atmosphere, good food and appears to be the most popular in Russell with many patrons. Rooms appear to be recently renovated.

    The Duke has old world charm with a modern approach to food and service. Our suite was beautifully furnished and well maintained. The staff are well trained, efficient and extremely polite. Recommend the Duke as a must in the BOI.

    The hotel is fabulous, such a great location and superb food. The bathroom was small but well equipped. The actual bedroom was nice too. The breakfast was delicious. The view from the deck was lovely especially when the sunset - very romantic! I just wish we could have stayed longer. We were part of the a wedding party and I... More

    Had a great night at the Duke, we had our room upgraded to a waterfront view upon arrival. Service staff were incredibly friendly in all parts of the Hotel. Dinner in the restaurant was outstanding as were the wait staff. Can't wait to come back for longer some day.
