We stayed at the Arcadia Lodge for 2 nights in February this year, and can't believe it has taken me so long to write this review.
It is as great as all the other reviews make it sound - Brad and David (David in particular) are fabulous hosts, and you are made to feel so welcome in their wonderful home. The rooms are fantastic - very clean and comfy beds. Breakfast is also a highlight, with wonderfully fresh food and a different 'hot' selection each day that could be straight out of one of Nigella or Jamie's best cook books!
There is free internet access downstairs, which is handy. The B&B is only a short walk in to Russell at night - and there is a good hill up to the Arcadia Lodge on the way home, if you are keen to walk off those extra calories. There are some really lovely restaurants in Russell, where you can eat wonderful food and watch the sun set by the boat moorings.
Overall, a great stay - clean, great service, good value, great food. Charming. We thoroughly recommend!!
