We stayed three nights and our room - Takurua - could not have been nicer: great view over the harbor, spacious private bathroom just across the hall (the only other room upstairs has its own bath), very comfortable bed. The other upstairs room - Ranginui - is nice but without the great view and with a small private bath. David... More

We visited in mid January. From the moment we arrived it was clear that we were going to enjoy this elegant B and B. Hosts David and Brad provide a discreet and very welcoming service. Everything was spotless and attention to detail obvious. The homemade biscuits were delicious only surpassed by the gourmet breakfasts! The view from our room and... More

We stayed in many B & Bs on our visit and they were a kaleidoscope of delights. The setting of this lodge was not idyllic like some but the setting was wonderful and far enough from the town to be peaceful. Above all David and Brad provide a quiet and excellent service, ever helpful. The breakfasts were a surprise each... More

This is a wonderful oasis of calm, with beautiful views, overlooking the bay at Russell. Your privacy is respected, but David and Brad are always present to offer advice on the area. Their hospitality is excellent, the rooms are very clean, and the breakfasts are superb.

Most discreet and helpful . Perfect location and privacy respected. Excellent beach a pleasant walk - or quick drive - away. The marvellous weather a bonus. Away from the more frantic tourist destinations in the area which is a huge advantage yet all facilities and superb restaurants so close by. Hard to find a more charming situation to relax in.

Arcadia Lodge is in a lovely setting overlooking the pretty village of Russell. The accommodation is spotless, beautifully maintained and the hosts David and Brad are so welcoming. Eating one of Brad's delicious breakfast creations on the deck looking out over the bay - perfect. One of the real highlights of our NZ trip.

We started our 3 week visit to New Zealand with 3 nights at Arcadia Lodge. It was great to get off to such an excellent start. Welcoming hosts, great breakfasts, comfortable room and lovely location in an interesting area. All we can do is endorse the praise of others.

This is the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in. David and Brad are fantastic hosts, with a beautiful home, in an incredible setting. We looked forward to waking up every morning to a stunning view of the water, and looked forward even more to the amazing breakfast on offer. Thank you so much, we will definitely be... More

Perfectly situated with to die for views from the balcony and bedroom. Warm and welcoming hosts that made us feel very at home. Breakfast was superb! We have fallen in love with Russell and the Bay of Islands and will be doing our best to squeeze another visit in before we return home to the UK in April. Thank you.
