This was a pleasant surprise from the time we made our booking to the time we left. Everything was easy and hassel free and we were made to feel welcome and at home. The cottage was beautiful, tastefully decorated, modern and spacious with plenty of room for our party of six. The beach is a very short stroll away, the... More

We stayed at the Russell Cottages for two nights as a couple and i have to say, I wished we had booked for the whole week! The cottage was spacious, full kitchen, dining, and living room with a beautiful gas fire. We felt completely spoiled by the set up and we would highly recommend the cottages. Russell is already known... More

A much needed break from these home four walls, and Russell is always good for the soul. Just the two of us got to our cottage in the afternoon and were delighted at the size and comfort. The gas fire going and a relax by the TV, then off for a walk and pick up some nibbles and wine. Cold... More

Very well appointed and spacious, plus only a couple of minutes walk from the water's edge. Would be a bit pricey at full price in summer but probably worth it for a family. Only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 is because it lacks a view. That wasn't a drawback in our case really as we checked in... More

This was a brilliant find - thanks to trip advisor. We had booked into a hotel in Waitangi and were very disappointed - so had walked out. We took the car ferry to Russell and loved the feel of the village - so checked out trip advisor, as we had no where to stay. In top place was Russell Cottages... More

We stayed with family friends and it was the perfect spot for both teenagers and adults alike due to its location. We loved the fact that we could walk to dinner or for a coffee as there were plenty of options nearby. The accommodation was perfect for two families.

My wife and 15-month old stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed our time in Russell. The accommodation was clean and location perfect, however our particular cottage (14) had a leaning floor which resulted in all of my sons toys rolling to one corner of the cottage and many of the doors not aligning or closing correctly. Other than this strange oddity... More
