We were in New Zealand for our second visit so have spent over 5 weeks there in total. This was our favorite accommodation. We loved our beautiful room overlooking the bay in Russell and were very appreciative of the excellent advice and attention given to us by the hosts. The breakfasts were excellent and served with care. When we encountered... More

My husband and I had a fabulous weekend away. David and Brad were fantastic hosts and the accommodation was top quality. The lodge is in a great spot - a quick walk to Russell and beautiful views. We will definitely come back.

Highly recommended - this B&B is delightful and a great place to base yourself for exploring Russell and the Bay of Islands. Brad & David are fabulous, welcoming hosts and the lodge is full of charm & character.

My wife and I had a spectacular 5 nights in this superb lodging. David and Brad are great hosts. The lodge itself has a classic aesthetic that's very pleasing. Breakfasts were very tasty with many special touches like the homemade lime marmalade that's the best I've ever had. We appreciated David's special efforts to arrange trips for us, including a...

David and Brad are so friendly and they do work so hard to make your visit so special. Their welcome is so good, you think you have known them for a long time as friends. Starting at the top. Our bedroom was on the first floor at the front of the house right overlooking the wonderful bay (so relaxing). The... More

We stayed for two nights in March and David and Brad looked after us extremely well. The accomodation was spacious, well appointed and beautifully decorated. Sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine and looking out at the stunning view over the bay was amazing. Breakfast was delicious on both mornings - everything homemade and a bit different from...

We arrived in the Bay of Islands after a 13hour flight and a 3 hour drive (also, take note of the instructions in the welcome email - avoid the scenic route and take the ferry!) and the Arcadia Lodge was sure a sight for sore eyes. Though we were a bit early, David welcomed us and hurried our check in.... More

We stayed at Arcadia Lodge for the first three nights of our holiday on the North Island, having taken a short flight from Auckland to the small airport of Kerikeri nearby. Russell is small, charming, historic town, just a short walk from the lodge. Arcadia Lodge is a very comfortable and friendly place to stay and Brad and Dave were... More

I stayed 3 nights at this beautiful B&B, near the end of a 4 week New Zealand trip. I had a hard time leaving - I would have liked to stay longer!

Stayed 2 nights in March at the beginning of a 3 week trip. A lovely old home that has been beautifully renovated. Stylish, tasteful and very comfortable.
