In the 1950s/1960s my grandparents owned this remarkable property. It was a guest house, and we used to drive up every Boxing Day and stay for 2 weeks, fishing and enjoying what Russell had to offer. 50 years on, going back and staying for a couple of nights was on my bucket list. Well my husband and I had 2... More

Stayed 3 nights at this fantastic B&B - great to chill after a lot of touring around. Fantastic views and David and Brad are great hosts. You really feel at home. Great breakfast on the decking and really helpful suggestions for excursions. It is a one off and you won't be disappointed if you want a unique and relaxing experience.

My husband and I were delighted to stay at Arcadia Lodge and David and Brad were excellent hosts. The lodge is full of beautiful things and our room was so comfortable. We were given excellent advice about where to have dinner and a good plan for our day around the Bay of Islands. Lastly our breakfast on the terrace with... More

Previous reviewers have said it all so please excuse the repetition. The property is perfect and fans of "Farrow & Ball" will love it. David & Brad were the perfect hosts - low key but nothing was too much trouble. Breakfasts were perfect. We stayed 3 nights. An American couple had done much the same last year but had now... More

This is a beautiful 1902 house ... I loved the wood floor and sympathetic and creative decor. Our room was lovely with a balcony overlooking the estuary. Comfortable bed and soft towels. There is a communal area with sofas and music if you want it. Also a shared kitchen with a huge choice of teas, coffee and ginger biscuits (bad... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. David and Brad were great hosts, very homely accommodation, great view from balcony and breakfast to match! Easy walk to Russell for Bay trips and Waitangi close by is worth a visit. A couple of walks round the bay are also to be recommended.

Delightful hosts Brad and David were charming throughout. They cook a different hot breakfast each day alongside fresh fruit salad, a delicious rhubarb compote, home made jams and more besides. If the weather permits breakfast is on a deck overlooking the bay, if not in the spacious dining room. Very friendly with the option to sit with and chat with... More

Picture your balcony overlooking a blue bay with a few boats floating idly in the swell. Picture breakfast on the balcony with a homemade bacon/egg tartlet with all usual accompaniments. Picture REAL fluffy towels in your quaint washed wooden wall bedroom. Then sit back and enjoy David and Brad's welcome. We recommend at least a couple of nights here as... More

The reviews below do not exaggerate: this is the best B&B we have ever stayed in. A beautiful building - with character, history and an attractive garden - just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Russell. Breakfast is impressive, with cereal, yoghurt, fresh fruit salad, and a hot "dish of the day". We had bruschetta and sausage on... More
