We always had great hopes that Russell would be a great place to finish our New Zealand holiday. We were not disappointed and Arcadia Lodge was the icing on the cake. Lovely rooms in a lovely house overlooking the bay. What could be better than breakfast or an afternoon beer on the balcony. A heartfelt thanks to David and Brad... More

A truly 5 star experience for my daughter and I who stayed at Archadia Lodge for just 2 nights, if only it could have been longer! The house is beautifully and tastefully furnished to the very highest standard, the panoramic wrap around deck looks out over Russell and the sea below. Our room was delightful, in fact we had a...

Perched atop a hill, Arcadia Lodge boasts some stunning views of Matauwhi bay. We stayed in the Tautoru suite which was beautifully decorated and impeccably clean. David and Brad are incredibly welcoming and their breakfasts are phenomenal. If you're visiting the Bay of Islands I would strongly recommend staying a couple nights to rest and recharge, you won't find more... More

Beautiful accommodation, exquisitely furnished rooms with stunning views, we will definitely be back. Thank you to Brad and David, your hospitality was second to none and made for a memorable weekend away. If you're stopping by this most beautiful part of the world I cannot recommend Arcadia enough. Thank you!

The fact we returned to Arcadia Lodge five years after our first visit probably says more than this review could ever say. It is charming, with some rooms overlooking the bay and is an easy fifteen minute stroll from the restaurants, the shops and the ferries. David and Brad are charming with massive attention to detail and the breakfasts are... More

The house is beautiful; very old and so tastefully furnished. David and Brad are excellent hosts, helpful, charming and very knowledgeable about the area. Breakfast was... More

David and Brad are a great team and they have created a wonderful atmosphere for travelers. The breakfasts are different each day and delicious. Served out on the patio with a fabulous view of Matuwhi Bay it is a wonderful way to start your day. We also liked the fact there was no television at the lodge which encourages you... More

Arcadia Lodge is one of a kind B&B. with the most considerate hosts whose attention to every detail is evident throughout this lovely property perched on a knoll with views to the bay. Their exquisite tastes in their furnitures, furnishings, art work, etc, etc. makes this a most pleasurable stay. We have travelled extensively in four continents and have stayed... More

Arcadia Lodge is a delightful B&B situated just outside the small town of Russell, well within short walking distance. The views from Arcadia Lodge are wonderful. David and Brad are very welcoming and provide super breakfasts which are tasty and different from the norm...such a welcome change. The room was very comfortable with everything we could wish for.
