Ranked #3 of 19 Russell B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We stayed here for two nights and simply loved our stay. Everything was just perfect. Our room was comfortable, organised and used to smell always fresh. The views from house were just breathtaking. And last but not the least, the hosts (Mark and Angelique) made us feel so much at home. It was just like staying in home just away from home. In short, it was a perfect B&B experience one could ever imagine. Surely recommended.

Incredible views and Mark and Angelique were wonderful hosts who could not do enough to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed.
This is definitely the place to be for that extra personal touch, but with as much privacy as you need. Left feeling very relaxed and sorry to leave such amazing views!!

We stayed for two nights in April using a special offer and we recognised instantaneously why so many reviewers mention Mark and Angelique's hospitality. Our bags were taken, drinks were poured and nibbles were prepared. The view from the deck of this property could be described as out of this world and it certainly would be if it wasn't for the fact that New Zealand seems to have so many of these amazing views. They've certainly managed to bag a very special property.

The room was nice and very clean and breakfast was good but not outstanding. However, the full package was definitely 5 stars.

奢华级的享受。Thank you Mark and Angelique for your hospitality. We had a great time there. Love russell very much, what a lifestyle. Million dollar view from your balcony is worth to go extra miles. What a life you guys are having. View is breath taking. We will definitely come back.

PROs
Fabulous views.
Drinks each evening and snacks.
Good coffee.
Upstairs living area beautiful.

CONs
There are two large rooms here but ours was tiny, only just fit around the bed.
Bathroom also tiny.
Thin walls, could hear the hosts above us talking and walking around until late and the couple next door...
Breakfast was fine but definitely not up to a $395/night standard. Eggs and toast and muesli.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't get the one teeny tiny room.

Thanks to Mark and Angelique for your gracious hospitality, starting from a very wet but warm welcome in the middle of a torrential downpour. They couldn't help the weather but we certainly felt they went the extra mile to get us inside and feeling at home. Thoroughly enjoyable experience and a very relaxing break. Great views, sumptuous breakfasts, helpful local knowledge and enjoyable conversations. We would recommend the stay to anyone wanting to experience some great Kiwi hospitality and scenery (with an unexpected touch of European antiques and experiences from a well travelled couple to also talk about).

If being pampered and made to feel like royalty while bathing in the luxury of scenic beauty is your thing, then you have come to the rigth place. Mark and Angelique go out of their way to assure their guests that they are treated with love, kindness and great food, drink and conversation (if desired) within the midst of elegant surroundings both within their magnificent B&B and when viewing from their lovely deck. This is a unique experience that spawns friendships and an unmistakeable desire to return.
