We spent two nights in this wonderful and well located lodge in Russell. Away from the hustling Paihia it is very quiet und lovely here.
The room is very nice, always clean and kind of strange (uneven floor) which makes it very unique. We liked...More

Hi Lindley and Don, just spotted your booking for next summer - welcome back to Russell. Off the top of my head I know the time line back 3 owners ago which is only to the 80s but if you let me know your grandparents' name I can find out more. Going back from us the owners names were Carlsson, before them Heays & Bosanquet, before them Shatwell (his name but not sure if his wife had the same name) but they ran it as a very successful back packers. Lots of people in town would be able to give me the info if I can give the name. Otherwise I need to dig out the title deeds. Cheers, David
