We had to ask for a disabled room and this was no problem. A clean well appointed 2 b/room Motel Room which was recently refurbished ticked all the boxes - even with aircon. The pool & area was well appointed & clean along with the BBQ area etc made available. Without asking we were given the WIFI code. This Motel...

Very nicely appointed room. Comfy bed, very clean with all the little extras you need. Great staff . Would definitely stay again!! Easy walking into the village, ferry & beach. I left my foundation behind which was found & posted on to me. I would have liked to stay longer & enjoy the nice pool & BBQ area.

Quality modern accommodation in a lovely location for exploring the Bay of Islands. There are 2 stunning beaches within walking distance, Long Beach and Tapeka Pt both excellent for swimming. Take a passenger ferry to Paihia and walk to Waitangi Treaty Grounds for a great day out. Did the Twin Coast Cycleway which I would highly recommend. Stayed 5 nights...

Great stay at the Duke motel. Great location just a short work (less than 5 minutes) to the beach and the main street. Nice pool and big rooms modern rooms. Stayed in a 2 bedroom room, and a one bedroom room the next night. Both highly recommended.

Nice accommodations for reasonable price for four adults staying together in two bedrooms. Very nice bathroom with large jacuzzi tub, but a little slight on number of towels supplied. Furniture in the living room was "Swedish" and not comfortable. Bed was extremely comfortable, however. No view of the water, but close to shopping and restaurants.

We stayed a couple of nights at The Duke Motel. The rooms were a surprise - tastefully furnished, immaculate and comfortable. There was a view from our room towards the ocean. The Duke is within easy walking distance to Russell waterfront where you will find great restaurants, shops etc. There are small supermarkets in town too.

Room very comfortable everything you need is here. Stayed for 5 nights in Russell which is a very quaint place. Great beaches nearby. Nice little pool to cool down in. Room had a spa bath to revive you after a hard day at the beach! Hotel is very short walk to centre ( 400 yards)
