An elegant place to stay which made rainy days okay given the accommodation was so lovely. Plenty of space to hang out in the house which is exclusively for guests and an AMAZING breakfast with fantastic service.

This was the first stop on our tour of the North Island and what a great start. The house is beautifully decorated, with wonderful bay views, spotlessly clean and Brad and David are great hosts who cook delicious breakfasts. They really care that you have a great experience in the Bay of Islands and make sure that you have all... More

Brad & David are absolutely great Hosts. They understand how to make People feel at Home while on the Road. Their House and the Rooms are something really special, this is the result of work done with love. We can absolutely recommend this place! This is Bed & Breakfast at it's best. Benedict & Salome

What really makes this place is the care given by both the hosts - both before and during your visit. Nothing is too much trouble. Bookings and advice for both trips and restaurants are all taken are of. I travel a huge amount and this level of care is very very rare. Highly recommended

We recently stayed at Arcadia Lodge and had a fabulous time. David and Brad were exceptional hosts, from their incredibly delicious breakfasts each morning to their recommendations for things to see and do in Russell and the Bay of Islands. The Lodge is beautiful with a relaxing communal lounge area and a huge deck with an amazing view of the... More

What could be nicer? Fabulous view and room, great hospitality and breakfast and easy access to all the delights of Kororāreka/Russell. Hosts David & Brad are great communicators and responded quickly to email requests. They have a great knowledge of local history and happy to advise on local services or places to visit. We were very well looked after on... More

We have stayed at Arcadia Lodge during 2 extensive trips around NZ during the past 4 years (one of only 2 places where we opted to stay during both visits). In our experience, it is one of the best B&Bs in the entire country. The location is superb and everything in Arcadia Lodge is top notch...Te Punga suite is best... More

This was such a spectacular find for us - both the B&B and the location. The location in the Bay of Islands is magical and stunningly beautiful. Having visited and considered Russell and Paihia we were so glad we chose Russell. It is quiet and quaint and beautiful. Boat tours (why you are here) go from the dock in the... More

We stayed at the Arcadia Lodge at the beginning of April 2014. The Tautoru suite was a wonderful and very aesthetic room with a private patio. David and Brad make sure that the guests are warmly welcome, but also have their own privacy. The level of detail David and Brad achieve (with respect to the food and the room) is... More

Thank you, Brad and David, for your hospitality during our stay. We had such a lovely time in your beautiful home and quaint little town. I have been raving to everyone I know about Arcadia Lodge. Firstly, for the stunning view that greeted us from our bedroom window each morning. We fell in love with your beautiful home which was... More
