We stayed at Flagstaff Lodge for 1 night as part of our honeymoon trip to New Zealand, and wished we had booked for longer! The lodge is immaculately presented as well as being both luxurious and incredibly comfortable, and the welcome from Jessie and Ruth was second to none. They went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our... More

Immaculately presented lodge hosted by owners Jessie and Ruth. Breakfast is cooked to order by Ruth - her hollandaise is just the best! Homemade bread, fresh and tasty - everything was brilliant. Jessie and Ruth are wonderful hosts who have a great knowledge of the local area, will assist with any dinner reservations or other activities and enjoy a wine... More

We have completed three weeks of discovery of New Zealand by three days here. Hosting Jessie & Ruth was great: tips to visit Russell and surroundings, attentions to our arrival, delicious breakfast, friendly wine tasting evening ... We loved it and recommend to all Flagstaff Lodge! We only regret that it happened so fast.

Took my tired husband here for his birthday, what a lovely place. Perfect location, fantastic hosts, lovely places to eat. Breakfast was lovely. We loved the soak in the outside baths under a moonlight night, candles & wine, what more can you want. Thank you Jessie & Ruth.

Jessie and Ruth assisted me in giving my partner the most amazing surprise birthday weekend. The activities ranged from lovely treatments in their spa, to tasting the local wine and food, to viewing the Bay of Isalnds from the sea and air. It was wonderful. The Flagstaff itself was beautiful, and we felt at home straight away. Every last detail... More
