Stayed in the Matariki suite with family. It had a spectacular view and was very tidy and comfortable.
David and Brad were great hosts, not much to say other than, this is the place to stay if you are visiting the Bay of Islands.
In the 1950s/1960s my grandparents owned this remarkable property. It was a guest house, and we used to drive up every Boxing Day and stay for 2 weeks, fishing and enjoying what Russell had to offer.

Previous reviewers have said it all so please excuse the repetition.
The property is perfect and fans of "Farrow & Ball" will love it. David & Brad were the perfect hosts - low key but nothing was too much trouble. Breakfasts were perfect.

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
