This was our first stop on our New Zealand trip and was worth the 3 hr + drive from Auckland. The setting is stunning and Russell is a great place that caters for most needs sports and sightseeing wise. Arcadia Lodge is amazing and the hosts, David and Brad, attentive without being intrusive. Their attention to detail was welcome as...

We stayed here for 2 nights in January. Brad and David were very helpful, welcoming but unobtrusive. Our room was beautifully furnished with a large double bed and ensuite with Eco toiletries. We were apparently the only room without a sea view or terrace - this wasn't a problem as we had the main terrace off the lounge to ourselves...

We stayed 3 nights at the beginning of New Zealand Odyssey and it could not have been a better place to stay. The place is a short walk into the village of Russell where there are good dining options. Our room (Te Punga) had a large terrace overlooking the water, a separate seating area, bedroom and spacious bathroom (in fact...

We had researched our second trip to Russell well and noted the reviews on Trip Advisor, Rough Guide and Gaystay.

Arcadia Lodge is a short walk to the village of Russell and has the most stunning views of the bay. Just sitting on the...

While the setting in New Zealand's beautiful Northland was the initial attraction, I'm convinced we would have enjoyed our stay at Arcadia Lodge no matter where it was. David and Brad are excellent hosts and their lodge is immaculate. The delicious breakfasts were a great start to every day there and their advice and assistance on booking excursions and evening...

Impeccable was the first word, followed by many many more good adjectives. The views of the bay from the balcony were just breathtaking, but the house itself was no less stunning. I had the chance to stay in 3 different rooms, all of them so meticulously maintained, with unbelievable attention to details that it showed. And great breakfast! David was...

Wonderful B&B -- a clean, comfortable old home that has been updated with obvious thoughtfulness and care. Set on a hill with beautiful views of the harbor. The breakfasts were delicious and always included homemade jams and marmalades from the hosts' own garden. David and Brad were very welcoming & friendly. They gave us great recommendations for dining and activities,...
