We had a wonderful weekend away with the most beautiful view we could imagine, all thanks to Bellrock Lodge! You will be warmly welcomed by Lorraine and Peter when you arrive. We had amazing water views from our room and all areas of the lodge and enjoyed our morning coffee out on our private balcony over looking the bay. In the evenings we would watch the sunset while lounging in the recliners. Bellrock Lodge is so close to the center that we could walk to see the sights in the area or a quick drive to Long Beach or take a ferry to other spots. Such a beautiful room and view that we didn't want to leave. Highly recommended to all! We will be back 😊

My wife and I had a wonderful few days at the Bellrock Lodge enjoying Russell and the Bay of Islands. My travel agent recommended it and she got this one right. The room was comfortable, spotless and well appointed. I only wish it had been sunny enough to enjoy our patio and amazing view. But Peter and Lorraine's personal touch and hospitality more than made up for the rain. We really felt like we were at home.

On a very cold New Zealand day we walked into this warm spacious room at Bellrock Lodge. The heat pump was switched on before our arrival so we could just walk in and take off our jackets and relax. Peter and Lorraine does have the gift to make you feel welcome in so many ways. The rooms are well designed and with all the final touches and little extras all you need is your toothbrush and your clothes. Located up on a hill the view is stunning and what we loved is how private the rooms are. Up to date information folder in the rooms with places to explore, ferry times and restaurants etc. But most of all Peter and Lorraine always have a open door for any questions. We loved our stay and can’t wait to return. Thank you Peter and Lorraine.
