David and Brad run an excellent B and B. A peaceful, comfortable, spotless home with a wonderful view of the bay. High quality sheets, towels, soap and lotions. We loved the full breakfast (juice, fruit, yogurt,cereal, toast, omelet) on the deck in the morning watching birds and sailboats. An honor bar, shared guest kitchen and relaxed living spaces contributed to... More

Not much I can say, other than to agree with all that has been said already. We really enjoyed the peace and tranquility, and sitting on the balcony with a pot of tea, whilst enjoying the views over the bay. David and Brad were friendly, gracious hosts. Luxury B&B, we would stay here again without hesitation.

Arcadia Lodge is a truly magical place to stay. The elevation of the property gives the most amazing panoramic views, and the high standards and attention to detail from the innovative breakfasts to the spacious stylish rooms makes this lodge quite unique! Add to this two very welcoming and knowledgeable hosts - David and Brad who made sure we got... More

We were both thrilled with our choice of Arcadia Lodge in Russell. David and Brad were extremely welcoming and gracious and every little detail has been thought of. The Lodge has been tastefully furnished and their art and treasures make it feel as if staying in a comfortable home. As others have mentioned, the breakfasts are beautifully presented and tasty....

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
