Spent a happy 3 nights in a studio suite here (it's worth noting the accommodation at this spot caters for everyone from backpackers dorms through to private apartments). Very central, parking space off road, comfy bed and well equipped kitchen and immaculate bathroom. Very pleasant. You do hear some noise from the neighbouring pub but that didn't trouble us.

We stayed at Seaport for two nights over Christmas and the host Baden went above and beyond to help us. First, it was Christmas Eve and every restaurant in Russell shut down for the holiday so Baden prepared a Christmas feast which he invited us to. It was delicious and so wonderful of him. Then, when we forgot something at... More

Had a wonderful time at the Seaport Village. With my husband and friends.The apartment is huge,fully equipped with everything you need and the location is awesome. There is a balcony to sit out on to have a wine and watch the world go by. Being walking distance to the shops and beautiful beaches is fantastic. Baden is so welcoming and... More

Russell is an expensive town, but I thought the charges here were too high for what we got. On the plus side, we were close to seafront and the receptionist was charming. However the accommodation was cramped and dated. We also backed on to the pub car park, which turned into party city at midnight every evening. Shrieking people, revving... More

I have stayed in Russell many times and have always chosen Seaport Village. The manager is very friendly and helpful, the location is excellent and I think excellent value for money. Totally recommended.

We arrived at 1pm but had to wait until 1:15 for someone to turn up to check us in. Despite giving our credit card on booking and being told it would be charged immediately, the owner then told us "Nah I haven't taken payment, you have to pay now". We then had to quickly move money around as we assumed... More

We booked a standard studio unit at the Seaport Village in Russell New Zealand for a stay in early January. On arrival the host very kindly upgraded us to a 2 bedroom apartment with our own balcony as we had booked in for a week. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again if we ever find ourselves... More

We thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful two night stay in this delightfully characteristic, large, clean, self contained studio at Seaport Village. It is close to the shops, restaurants, activities and beach. I don't think we even got back into our car while we were there. The only thing missing for us was a pool but the beach is very close and... More

Stayed for a couple of nights there while exploring the bay, and didn't regret it. The unit was beautiful and the whole motel is very well located, just a few meters from the wharf and beach. The host was very nice and welcoming, and e only dark spot ln this perfect picture could probably be the noise out in the... More
