A very cute little room with great contemporary bach like décor which we loved. All the amenities - sky tv, books, games, stereo dock to use the phone for music, kitchenette and a bath! Free wifi, laundry and nice people. Just a short walk from downtown Russell. We were very happy with our stay here.

Weekend in Russell with a toddler and baby and although the weather was not as sunny as past experiences the games and rooms were enough for all to enjoy the break away. Friendly and helpful staff made the stay all the more enjoyable! Highly recommend and will return!

Nice modern seaside decor, very comfortable . Was in family room and was impressed with the books and games available for use. No sea views though like the ad said. But very handy to everything Recommend

We are staying at the Duke Motel and absolutely love it. The rooms are very stylish, spacious, well equipped, clean and have lovely views. The manager is really efficient and friendly. This place offers excellent value for money, we can't recommend it highly enough. We would stay again.

I was very impressed with everything. The room had everything we needed and new decor was very cool. The beds are super comfy too. Couldn't fault this motel at all. The staff are very friendly and very accommodating. It is very central to the middle of town. Will definitely stay again and recommend it to everyone.

We stayed in one of the two bedroom apartments and loved it! Amazing jet stream two-person bathtub, functional kitchen, comfy bed. Free unlimited wi-fi and free laundry. Small touches like the various books, plants and board games make the place feel like home, so great for longer stays. The quirky colourful style is spot-on!

The room was fresh and well preparied. A little to small for us with two big suitcases. We could park the car just outside the room. Only 5 minutes walk to center and nice restaurants and cafe's. Very friendly staff. We stayed three nights and was very satisfied. We can recommend the it. If we come back we will book...
