After driving 3000Km in 2 weeks around the North Island, we spent a relaxing 3 days at Arcadia Lodge before heading home. While the lodge (home) is quite old, it has been beautifully restored and tastefully decorated. David and Brad are terrific and meticulous hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was spotless and comfortable. Russell is a very pretty place with reasonably good and affordable restaurants. A very pleasant end to our travelling holiday.
