I'm an expat Kiwi, and very proud of my country despite living abroad. Over there recently for the rugby world cup and with some overseas mates. I wanted to show them 'the real New Zealand', but not have to go too far from Auckland. We turned up at Bellrock and as soon as we met Peter and Lorraine I knew it was the right decision. The accomadation is brand new via a big renovation, with loads of beautiful old polished wood and really lovely rooms. The views are incredible - we realised we looked directly over the lovely town of Russell, and then across the bay to look right at the lawn and Treaty House where NZ was officially 'born' via signing the Treaty of Waitangi. There are plenty of places to eat (and drink) within a one minute walk. We had the most incredible cooked brekkies, which even us hard core rugby lads found over-matched our appetites! If you intend to go to the Bay of Islands don't miss Bellrock!
