“Luxury stay at the White House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2007

Emma and Steve Jury have created a luxurious but comfortable bed and breakfast in an ideal location for exploring the Bay of Islands. All three double bedrooms are as good if not better than most people have at home and have been very tastefully furnished with contemporary designed en suites.

The lounge and kitchen areas are also very thoughtfully laid out with every need catered for, in style. There is also a residents deck area which is well shaded for crashing out after a days sight seeing.

Steve and Emma have great knowledge of the area and there are several good restaurants they can recommend both in Russell and the surrounding area.

So if you are visiting the Bay of Islands a stay at the White House is an absolute must.

Stayed March 2007

The White House was such a lovely base for our first visit to the Bay of Islands region.
There are 3 guest rooms- ours had been very thoughtfully deisgned with quality linen & finishes. There were big fluffy dressing gowns and pairs of complimentary slippers as well as complimentary sherry and port.
Breakfast is DIY which may sound a little odd (as this costs a touch more than most NZ hotels) but there is a huge range of foods to pick from with a very relaxed atmosphere (breakfast can be prepared up until midday). The hosts, Steve & Emma are friendly without being intrusive and happy to answer any questions about Russell.
Russell is a stunning location which I'm most certain we'll visit again and when we do, we'll be sure tore-visit the White House.
