My hubby and I stayed here for 4 nights for a quiet getaway minus children. It was exactly as I expected having read the other reviews on tripadvisor. We stayed in a 1 bed cottage. All the cottages have up to 4 bedrooms so if you book a 1 bed then the other rooms are locked. Check in was straightforward... More

We spent our wedding anniversary in pretty Russell and booked a 2 bedroom cottage (we like lots of space). The 3rd bedroom was locked off, but we had the master with ensuite, a 2nd dbl bedroom and a bathroom, all uptstairs. Downstairs was a laundry (with another toilet) and a spacious open plan kitchen, dining, living area. 2 sets of... More

This review is a little late but I thought better late than never....We stayed at the Russell Cottages in January 2014. There were 2 families and we stayed in the 4 bedroom cottage which was perfect for us. It was clean, well appointed, service was great and central to everything in Russel...which I need to add is a beautiful seaside... More

We stayed here for four nights, at last minute after our resort location in Paihia fell through. We asked for a 2-person rate and paid $150 per night, they closed off the second level and we did not pay for any room services. Great value. We stayed in house #12 and would recommend it. The cottages were located close to... More

We stayed three nights in one of the well-appointed cottages. We were two couples in a three bedroom cottage (one of the bedrooms was closed off). We had two decent sized bedrooms upstairs along with two bathrooms, one ensuite. There was another half bath downstairs and a laundry room which was most helpful. The great room consists of a large... More

Stayed a few nights and this was a lovely place to stay, very central to everything in Russell, great place if you want your own independence to cook for yourself, cottage also has laundry facilities as well. Very spacious, our cottage had a nice little deck to be able to sit outside as well.

This has to be the best place I've ever stayed. There were only 2 of us but we wanted desperate bedrooms so we stayed in a 4 bedroom house. It was so large. Right next to the pool. Very modern and great location. I can not rate this place any higher.

We stayed here for two nights during the off peak season and it was lovely. The cottages themselves are great as they have everything you will need and are finished to a high standard. There is a pool also but we forgot our togs so can't comment on that. The accommodation is a very short walk to town so great... More

We stayed here only one night on a road trip through Northland. Russell as a town is much nicer than Paihia and would recommended it as a Bay of Island option. We stayed here as a couple in a large cottage. I can see how this would be perfect for large groups or families. It was only a short walk... More
